Ultimate Essiac brand carries a ton of benefits. Finely powdered herbs allow for maximal absorption. Because we finely powder our herbs, they can be ingested rather than strained out and thrown away. In addition, finely powdered herbs are more easily absorbed into the water during the brewing process. This is the same way the Ojibway Indians consumed their essiac tea. They are the first ones to use essiac - they are the ones used it even before Rene Caisse did!
Our essiac formula was developed by Rene Caisse and Dr. Charles Brusch, MD. Rene Caisse was the Canadian nurse for whom essiac is named ("essiac" is "Caisse" spelled backwards). Dr. Charles Brusch, who was President John K. Kennedy’s personal physician, is credited with developing the eight-herb essiac formula in partnership with Rene Caisse. This formula includes the original four essiac herbs plus an additional four herbs which were added to enhance the formula’s effectiveness. This essiac formula is the result of eight years of research performed from 1959 through 1967 at the Brusch Medical Research Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
With an advanced formula and finely powdered herbs, it is easy to see why we are called Ultimate Essiac tea.
