Your body deserves goodness

The medicinal properties of bitter-leaf are very widely known in sub-Saharan Africa. One of the many secrets passed on by grand-parents that have been forgotten in the frenzy of modern living. These healing qualities are derived from the many micro-nutrients that are important for the maintenance of human health and prevention of various diseases. In Nigeria, bitter-leaf is one of the most common remedy for tummy aches and period cramps. All you needed to do is to chew the tender stem of the plant like a chewing stick and swallow the bitter fluid; the ache will stop within few minutes. Miraculous.

For the cosmopolitan patient, chewing on a bitter stick may not be so stylish. So, Respite Tea has stepped in to bring mother-nature’s remedy to you in a teabag

Although the benefits for women are always touted – especially for fertility and weight loss- there is growing evidence to suggest that the powerful antioxidant properties in bitter leaf help with prostate health.
