Chã de Bugre (Cordia salicifolia) Cut & Sifted (1 pound)
- Reviews (0)
Chá de Bugre is a small tree native to Brazil. It is also found in tropical forest areas of Argentina and Paraguay. In Brazil, it is commonly called café do mato (coffee of the woods) because it produces a red fruit that resembles a coffee bean. The fruit can be roasted and brewed into tea as a coffee substitute.
Even with its popularity, little has been done to analyze the phytochemicals in the plant. It is known to contain caffeine, potassium, allantoin and allantoic acid.
We prepare our Chá de Bugre Extract from the dried leaves of the Chá de Bugre plant sourced directly from Brazil.
Use 10-15 drops with water once or twice a day or as recommended by a health care practitioner.
