Shikimic acid was originally extracted in the 1800’s for medicinal use from Chinese star anise. It is used to treat respiratory and viral illnesses. A key ingredient in Tamiflu, which is a known anti-viral medication used to treat the flu. A study published in ResearchGate (here) confirms that shikimic acid also offers antiplatelet-aggregating activity, meaning it helps halt blood clots.
Suramin has inhibitory effects against components of the coagulation cascade and against the inappropriate replication and modification of RNA and DNA. Excessive coagulation causes blood clots, strokes and unusually heavy menstrual cycles. These are very similar side effects being seen in post vaccinated and close contacts of the vaccinated. Interesting yes?
Here is the article with a study done by Salk Institute, regarding the spike protein and its effects on vascular cells, revealing that the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein is what’s actually causing vascular damage in covid patients and vaccine recipients, promoting the strokes, heart attacks, migraines and blood clots.
Pine needle tea has a mild, pleasant taste. Depending on the variety of pine needles use, it can also have notes of citrus. The usual reactions we get is – “it tastes like Christmas”. Our blend also contains fennel, star anise and Schisandra berries which add sweet and sour notes.

Yes absolutely. They may find the taste a little overwhelming so it is recommended to add honey for a more pleasant experience.
The Eastern White Pine makes a great tea, but any variety of pine, spruce, or hemlock tree can be used. Avoid using needles from any Cypress, Yew tree and Norfolk Island pine as they can be toxic.
