Replenish is the expression of the Ayurvedic principle of Rasa, the vital essence in our food extracted through the process of digestion. Rasa is the material foundation for creation of life force energy known as “qi” in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qi is absorbed through the air we breathe and the nutrients in our diet, and circulates throughout the body, activating all life processes. The herbs in this elixir have long been used in the “wise woman” tradition of grassroots herbalism because they contain compounds necessary for optimal functioning and development of all physiological processes. This foundation of this formula is based on nettles and oats, both highly nourishing greens. Combined with other well-known herbs, such as horsetail, red clover & alfalfa, used to fill in the broad micro-nutrient profile. All of these replenishing herbs are among the first of the spring greens available to cleanse and renew our systems. The bio-availability of their nutrients is enhanced through this liquid preparation, which requires less energy for digestion.

It invigorates the tissues, enhancing the strength, resiliency and sheen of bones, hair, nails, teeth and skin. Drinking Replenish as part of a daily health practice promotes a cool, well-lubricated system and neutralizes some of the effects of a turbulent modern lifestyle. It’s perfect when you’re feeling withered and depleted and provides ongoing maintenance and mild detoxification when consumed regularly.
