Critter Herb Tea – Benefits and Properties

by Dianna Leon

Originating in the South of North America, the animal herb, with the scientific name of Polygonum acre, is also known as marsh pepper, acataia, capiçoba, curage and cataia. It is a plant with a height of 50 cm to 1 meter, which grows quickly and can be identified by its bright green leaves and, in some cases, with bursts of red, pointed and narrow, similar to spears. The flavor of your tea is strongly peppered.

How to prepare animal herb tea

Heat 1 liter of water with 2 tablespoons of animal grass, turn off as soon as it comes to a boil. Keep the solution muffled for 10 minutes, after this period just strain and consume.

The benefits of this infusion

The infusion described above is ideal to treat problems such as poor circulation (since it serves as a stimulant), varicose veins, urinary infections, rheumatism, skin infections, hair loss, muscle pain, among other ailments.

It is worth remembering that for skin problems, wounds, itching and boils, it is important not only to consume the tea, but also to prepare it as an ointment and apply it to the area in need. Just place the chopped leaves of the animal herb in a clean cloth, smother it well and place it over a sieve that is on top of a pan of boiling water. The leaves on the cloth will absorb the vapors, and then should be applied to the affected parts while they are still warm. Leave it like this for 10 minutes, and repeat the procedure daily, twice a day, until it is definitely cured.

Beware of consumption

We emphasize that the animal herb must be strictly avoided by pregnant women, as it has properties that can lead to abortion. It is also contraindicated for those who need to perform toxicological tests, as the herb may mask the test and lead to error.
