BioPure Red Root Tincture made from Ceanothus americanus, sometimes referred to as Red Root, New Jersey Tea, Mountain Lilac, or Buckbrush, is an herbaceous shrub in the Buckthorn family, Rhamnaceae, and grows mostly in the north eastern part of the United States. It gets the nickname of “Red Root” because of its large, contorted, reddish-brown root covered by a thin bark. These roots can sometimes form massive, tough, plow-breaking underground systems. The plant used in BioPure Red Root Tincture reaches about 3 feet in height, has clusters of tiny white or pale pinkish flowers that grow at the tips of its branches, and sometimes have a wintergreen scent. Ceanothus is deciduous and has nitrogen-fixing fungi on its roots.
Red root (Ceanothus americanus) is a shrub noted for its large red roots, which are utilized in many different industries. Its leaves were historically used as a substitute for imported tea during the American Revolution. Different parts of the plants are used in herbal preparations and homeopathic remedies. Red Root is an astringent and expectorant, helping with sore throats, flus, gastrointestinal problems, and reducing stagnation in the lymphatic system. Offered in a 2 fl oz bottle with dropper.
