Product Features

  • Natural Defenses - Medicinal Tonic - Antioxidant
  • Finest Quality from Shade Dried Cut & Sifted Chaparral Leaf - Wildcrafted in the Sonoran Desert of Northern Mexico. Actual packaging may differ.
  • Lore: Considered the oldest of living plants, there are several areas of the Mojave Desert where 'Clonal Larrea' rings have been found that are several yards in diameter. Near Lucerne Valley, California King Clone has an average diameter of 45 feet! Using radiocarbon dating and known growth rates of Chaparral, scientists have estimated the age of King Clone at 11,700 years. Some of these desert dwellers have been here continuously since the last ice age.
  • Phytochemistry: Creosote bushes of the Mojave Desert have 78 chromosomes, those of the Sonoran Desert (southern Arizona) have 52 chromosomes, while those of west Texas (Chihuahuan Desert) have only 26. Such an increase in the number of chromosomes in plant evolution is not that unusual - as it is part of the plant's evolutionary adaptation into regions with less rainfall.
