The knee bone’s connected to the leg bone, the leg bone’s connected to the thigh bone…and, what do you know? They’re all
aching. It’s a fact: whether you suffer from arthritis or not, creaky, achy joints and bones are part of the aging process. As we
age, the cartilage and ligaments that keep our body moving deteriorate from the stress of daily life, leading to stiff joints that
can seriously cramp your style.
Thankfully, none of this is new news. Since long before the advent of modern science, practitioners of herbal medicine around
the globe experimented with natural remedies to help cure what ails us. Skeletea, our bone & joint blend, offers a rich
combination of such time-honored herbs in a flavorful beverage that satisfies to the core.
The blend starts with a dose of turmeric (Latin: Curcuma longa), long prized by Indian Ayurvedic practitioners and regarded as
one of the most effective natural antidotes to stiff, sore joints. Fennel, another of the herbal components has also long been
thought to ease the joints, (and adds a licorice-like flair to the blend.) Not to be outdone, we’ve also included Burdock Root,
another noted joint reliever thanks to fatty oils that deliver an anti-inflammatory boost.
Along with this trio of natural joint-relievers, we’ve added a smattering of antioxidant rich citrus, flowers and spice to deliver a
cup that’s as delicious as it is nutritious. Naturally caffeine-free, if you’re feeling the weather change in your joints, you’ve got
some Skeletea in the forecast.
