ESSIAC ~ Herbal Health
Essiac is the name of its discoverer spelled
backwards. Rene Caisse was a Canadian nurse who as fate would
have it met the husband of a breast cancer patient who attributed
her survival to four herbs used by the Ojibwa Indians to treat
Originally used by the Ojibwe Indians and made famous by Rene Caisse in the 1920’s, Essiac has been used for centuries to encourage all around wellness. Maxx Herb Essiac follows the original recipe created and made famous by Rene Caisse and uses only premium quality herbs for maximum effect. This amazing 4 herbal formula contains: Burdock Root, Sheep Sorrel, Turkey Rhubarb Root and Slippery Elm to help support the immune system.
Essiac has become widely known for its remarkable ability to help boost the immune system and detoxify the body. Used for decades by tens of thousands of consumers, it has been touted as one of the most effective herbal detoxification remedies ever. Many customers who take Es-iak on a regular basis report feeling healthier and a sense of overall well-being.

FAQs for Es-iak:
Why choose Maxx Herb Es-iak over Essiac capsules, tablets and powders?
When it comes to Es-iak, capsules, tablets and powders are not as effective. The Es-iak 4 Herb blend must be boiled and extracted to release the volatile oils and esters, the key components that make Maxx Herb Es-iak an effective herbal dietary supplement! Your body’s digestive system is not capable of extracting these volatile oils and esters from capsules, tablets or powders and as a result, they are inferior! Our Es-iak comes in a concentrated liquid form rendering it far superior for maximum effectiveness than any Es-iak capsules, tablets, teas or powders on the market.
Can I go to a health food store and buy all the herbs and make it myself?
Yes you can. However, it’s not practical. First of all, you have no way of guaranteeing the quality or purity of the ingredients and even if you could, the process is very complicated…. some steps include: measuring, mixing, boiling, straining, re-boiling, cooling and storing in sterilized bottles. Second, it would take you over 8 hours to prepare it and you still wouldn’t have the strength for maximum effectiveness. Therefore, it’s not as effective, efficient, convenient or affordable.
Why choose Maxx Herb Es-iak over of Essiac Tea?
Just making Essiac tea does not release the volatile oils and esters, which are the key compounds that make Es-iak a very effective Herbal Dietary Supplement. We use a proprietary extraction process which releases the volatile oils and esters ensuring the highest quality extract available for maximum effectiveness.
Maxx Herb has taken this proven, time tested Essiac tea formula and made it more potent and much more convenient to take!
Each 1mL serving is equal to 1 cup of Essiac tea. Our conveniently sized 4 ounce bottle is equal to 120 cups of tea. That’s the equivalent of 7 ½ gallons of tea!
