Green tea is made from the unfermented leaves of Camellia sinensis, the same plant that gives us black and oolong teas. All teas from Camellia sinensis supply antioxidants, but because green tea is the least processed, it is said to contain the most antioxidant polyphenols, which are responsible for its many health benefits.

Amla Fruit, or Emblic Fruit (Amalaki), is one of the most commonly used herbs in Ayurveda. A strong rejuvenative, amla supplies antioxidants and can help supports digestive function. Amla is also the basis for the Ayurvedic rejuvenative jam, chyavanprash, and the widely-used combination herbal blend, triphala.
Belleric Myrobalan Fruit (Bibhitaki) is another famous fruit of Ayurveda, and one of three herbs in the widely-used Ayurvedic remedy, triphala (the other two herbs are Amalaki and Haritaki). It has been traditionally used to support digestive functions. Bibhitaki also can help support proper water balance, and support the digestive tract as well as the urinary and respiratory tracts.
Chebulic Myrobalan Fruit (Haritaki) is considered by some to be the single most important Ayurvedic herb, and is one of the three herbs in the famous Ayurvedic remedy triphala. Widely used in Tibetan medicine, it is called the "king of herbs," and in Ayurveda, haritaki is known as "the mother." Haritaki is strongly astringent, and is used to promote skin function, as well as to support digestion and elimination. Haritaki is also mildly laxative.

Stevia is a genus of about 240 species of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower family native to subtropical and tropical South America and Central America. The leaf is used primarily as a sweetener in South America. Locals there use it as a substitute for sugar for those who can't use sugar. Various glycosides, including stevoside - which is about 100 to 200 times sweeter than sugar - provide the sweetness. It is widely used as a non-sugar sweetener in other areas of the world, particularly in Japan.
Organic and natural flavors are derived from organic and natural sources such as spices, fruit, herbs, roots, or many other plants or foods, whose significant function in food is flavoring.
Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) is often referred to as Siberian Ginseng. It is not a true ginseng, but a cousin of Asian ginseng. It has gained that nickname due to the fact that Siberian natives use it as a broad spectrum health enhancer, much the way ginseng is used. It has been traditionally used as a long-term stamina promoting herb.
