When the weather starts changing, our body perceive it as a mild trauma as it struggles to adapt to the sudden changes of temperatures and light. You might feel tired, nervous, lacking sleep, and your skin might break out for no reason.

Northern europe folks have used this beverage for centuries to purify the blood. Although clinical studies on the topic are lacking, it is traditionnally used for its cleansing, diuretic, tonic, and draining effects.
