Mate, green tea, acerola cherry, natural orange and tropical fruit flavors

Boost your immune system with a vitamin-rich organic blend of mate and green tea with clinically proven benefits!

With this healthy tea, Kusmi Tea pushes the boundaries of inventiveness and lets science do the work. What's the goal? Boost your immune system every day by enjoying our organic blend of mate and green tea with fruity notes of orange, tropical fruit, and blackcurrant. Its secret? Acerola cherries: a fruit that is especially high in vitamin C.

Because some periods are more difficult than others, no one is immune to a little "loss of momentum" leading to colds and other minor infections.

That's why we've come up with yet another innovation to deliver these benefits enjoyably. Thanks to a unique avant-garde process, our organic mate leaves are enriched with acerola extract containing just the right dose of vitamin C, known to support the immune system [1] [2] [3].

Immune Defense Ritual is effective from the very first cup, and if you want to be totally reboosted, with 3 cups a day it even provides 100% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C!

Because it's good for the planet, it can be purchased as loose tea or in convenient on-the-go teabags.

Rebalancing your immune system takes time, so be patient! It takes at least four weeks for your body to regain its full vitality. Of course, you can drink the tea as often as you want, but the important thing is to continue enjoying it over time. 

The info you need

Not synthesized by the human body, vitamin C is essential for the body to function properly. It must therefore be provided through a varied and balanced diet. By taking your Immune Defense Ritual on a regular basis, you give your body the opportunity to better resist external threats.
 
The effects of vitamin C on the body's natural defenses have been validated by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) [5].

Numerous scientific studies show that vitamin C stimulates the migration of white blood cells to the site of infection, improving the process of virus destruction as well as microbial destruction [2] [6] [7] [8].

A clinical study of 28 subjects showed that vitamin C intake led to a 59% reduction in the duration of cold episodes [9]. An epidemiological study, this time carried out on 120 people, concluded that immunity is positively affected by the consumption of foods naturally rich in vitamin C [10].

To ensure the quality of our acerola extract, we called on the services of a laboratory specializing in plant analysis and headed by a pharmacist with expertise in pharmacology. Recurrent analyses conducted ensure that the active ingredients in our extract are present in the right amount. In this way, we are able to guarantee the full effectiveness of our product.

Questions about immune defense ritual

What is a plant extract?

The plant world is full of properties, so scientists have developed specific processes to extract the best from it.
The term "plant extract" is used to describe a substance obtained from a plant source and containing compounds that are beneficial to health: active ingredients.
Plant extracts are a great way to get the benefits of plants into your daily life.
And because pleasure remains our No. 1 objective at Kusmi Tea, we've chosen to combine the effectiveness of these extracts with unforgettable flavors!

What is an active ingredient?

Active ingredients are molecules found directly in nature: in plants, roots, fruits, vegetable oils and so on. They are particularly interesting for their qualities and properties.
Here are some examples of active ingredients you may be familiar with: caffeine in coffee, vitamin C in oranges, and omega-3 in oily fish such as salmon.

What is acerola?

Acerola, also known as West Indian cherry, is a tropical fruit native to the Caribbean islands. For thousands of years, the indigenous peoples of the Amazon region have consumed it for its beneficial effects on the body. These little red berries are characterized by their tangy taste and are a natural source of vitamin C. Their vitamin C content can be 30 to 40 times higher than oranges!

What is vitamin C? What are its effects?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient for the proper functioning of the body. It has a protective role and multiple effects. It boosts our defenses, preserves our vitality, stimulates the production of antibodies and possesses antioxidant properties. Unfortunately, our bodies cannot synthesize this vitamin naturally, so it must be supplied through a varied and balanced diet. Taking 3 cups a day of our Immune Defense Ritual will give you 100% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C.
