Green Tea


  • I love Kiwiherb! Finding something that worked so well, and was safe for my daughter when she was at an age where she couldn't have all other medicines, it was such a great help! And now I use nothing else

  • I brought a bottle of De-stuff for my 11 month old daughter yesterday who has had a runny nose for the last 5 days, I've been wiping her nose constantly but after 2 doses of De-stuff I've only had to wipe her nose twice today. I wish I'd known about this sooner. I will be using this straight away in the future

  • Absolutely love baby balm. My 6 week old had flakey, dry skin and nothing I had tried was helping until I tried baby balm. Her skin is so much better. I can't believe how fast it worked. Thank you Kiwiherb!!!

  • I'm not often inspired enough to go seek out a brand's Facebook page just to give them my positive feedback - in fact this is the first time ever. I just wanted to express how much I love the children's cough syrup, it's always worked wonders on my kids - it's now taken to the next level with the inclusion of the syringe which is long enough to reach the bottom of the bottle - hurray! It's always been the bane of my mum-life trying to reach the medicine when the bottles have run low with syringes that aren't long enough - thank you!

  • Received a bottle of children's chest syrup to trial and what can I say it's magic in a bottle!! After a single dose they didn’t cough the whole night which meant a better sleep for everyone after two days they were so much better and they liked the taste which is great, can't wait to try more of your products

  • Brought a bottle of children's chest syrup and it works like magic no more coughing during the night. Also my son loves the taste

  • On Sunday we bought De-Stuff for our 3 year old daughter who has struggled with a cold all week. After 2 doses of it, along with the Chesty formula, she slept so well that night and woke up looking and sounding so much better. Now almost 3 days later her cold is all but gone. I wish I had have found out about it sooner.

Green Tea

Botanical name: Camellia sinensis
Common name: Green Tea
Part used: leaf

Tea has a long history of medicinal and culinary use dating back over 5000 years in a number of Asian countries.  It was used in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine systems for a variety of health conditions, from heart health and regulating body temperature and blood sugar, to improving digestion, mental function and eyesight.

Green tea, the unoxidised leaf of Camellia sinensis, contains nearly 4000 bioactive compounds, with the health promoting effects largely attributed to the most-therapeutically active catechins (flavanols), together with the flavonols (predominately kaempferol, quercetin, and myricetin), which collectively make up approximately 30-40% of green tea fresh leaf dry weight.  Green tea contains a higher polyphenol and lower caffeine content than black tea (which is fully-oxidised, therefore a higher caffeine content), with approximately 2-5% caffeine of dried leaf weight. The polyphenols in Green Tea have been shown to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation changes in the skin. Its antioxidant activity protects against sun-induced oxidative damage and premature skin aging.

Green tea consumption has been suggested to improve the healthy functioning of several body systems, particularly with regards to diseases that have an underlying inflammatory or immune dysfunction.
