Item details

For history
In ancient times the sabu was known as the coast. His healing properties became known by Hippocrates, while Dioscorides reported that they were making tea with his leaves for the receding of the flames and cataplasms for skin inflammations and burns. But the ancients also used it for other reasons: with the fruits of the plant they wore fabrics and skins or perfumed the wine, while from his wood it was speculated that they were making a musical instrument, the savannah. In the 18th century in France they used his distillery to quench the freckles.

How it benefits us
Immune: Thanks to the anthocyanins it contains, it helps to strengthen the body's defense. In addition, it prevents free radicals, which, among other things, cause damage to the cells, thus contributing to the prevention of chronic diseases.
Respiratory: It has expectorant properties and is therefore used for the treatment of respiratory diseases such as bronchitis and asthma.
Heart: Limited clinical trials have shown that sabum can help reduce "bad" LDL cholesterol and increase the "good" HDL cholesterol, which is particularly beneficial to heart health.
Skin: Its leaves have healing and softening properties. Swabs with shampoo tea relieve sunburn and are thought to help in the treatment of herpes virus. Ointments and sapwood oil are used externally in cases of bruising, swelling, skin irritation and wounds.
Eyes: Its flower is suitable for washing in cases of conjunctivitis.
Crying: Used to treat the symptoms of the cold. Relieves nasal congestion, raises fever and soothes headaches, sore throat and cough.
Detoxification: Its phytochemicals have laxative and diuretic properties that help eliminate toxins from the body.

Its valuable ingredients
It is rich in vitamins A, B, C, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, amino acids and a number of phytochemicals (betulin, flavonoids, anthocyanins, glycosides, tannins, quercetin, rutin and β-carotene). These phytochemicals are found in its flowers and fruit and have antiviral and antioxidant action. Also, the essential oil from its flowers contains a significant amount of free fatty acids, which are particularly beneficial for cardiovascular health.
