Here are the top 8 health benefits of yerba mate….

What’s more, yerba mate may contain seven out of nine essential amino acids, in addition to nearly every vitamin and mineral your body needs (1Trusted Source, 3).
However, the tea contains very small amounts of these nutrients, so it’s unlikely to make a large contribution to your diet on its own…

Mugwort is a plant that grows wild in various parts of the world. A bitter green, it is a great detoxifier for the liver, as it increases bile production. It treats many issues such as depression, anxiety, sleep issues, and menstruation issues. It can also cause vivid dreams!
Note: It is not recommended for women who are pregnant, as it can stimulate the uterus.
Some people will smoke it, and it can also be used for smudging.
I just picked a bunch and steeped the leaves in a tea strainer. Next, I’ll try juicing it to see how it may increase the potency.

Could COVID-19 be cured with traditional herbal treatments? | COVID-19 Special
•May 20, 2020
As pharma giants around the world race to find a cure for the corona-virus, Madagascar says it already has one. But there’s heated debate on social media. Africans accuse the West of being condescending towards their faith in traditional medicine. Madagascar’s President Andry Rajoelina promotes so called “Covid Organics” or CVO. It’s an anti-coronavirus tea made from the plant artemisia annua. The herbal ingridient of the drink is medically proven to be effective against malaria. Now, it’s being distributed for free on the island against Covid-19 – and also shipped on bulk to other African countries. But the World Health Organisation is yet to prove the efficacy of the plant. Some Doctors say untested herbal brews could be a risk, rather than a remedy.
Ghanaians also say they have a remedy. Ghana is one of the leading countries for confirmed COVID-19 cases in Africa – right behind Africa’s most populous country, Nigeria, with more than 5,700 cases. The disease presents an opportunity for some of its countries’ medicine men and women, who believe that they have the cure for the coronavirus.
Is traditional medicine really be the answer to treat COVID-19?
