Looking for a way to help keep yourself healthy this winter? Sipping on homemade pine bark tea might just be the answer!
Eastern white pine contains proanthocyanidins, powerful antioxidants and potentiators of vitamin C (a potentiator helps small amounts of a substance, this case vitamin C, exert the same effect on the body as higher amounts would). The inner bark possess among the highest levels of these polyphenols in the plant kingdom.
Also, pine bark tea is an anti-diabetic!
Pine has a plethora of other uses as food, medicine, bandages, cordage, water-tight bark containers, and weaving material among other gifts and we may touch on a few of these additional uses in class.
Please bring a sharp knife and a jar (that you don’t mind having resin on).
