Ingredients: A herbal blend of cat's claw, amor seco, fedegoso, picăo preto, mullaca, clavillia, simarouba, Brazilian peppertree bark, gervâo, and bitter melon. To prepare this natural remedy yourself: use three parts picao preto, and 1 part each of the remaining herbs in the list. To make a small amount... "1 part" could be one tablespoon (you'd have 12 tablespoons of the blended herbal formula). For larger amounts, use "1 part" as one ounce or one cup or one pound. Combine all the herbs together well. The herbal mixture can then be stuffed into capsules or brewed into tea, stirred into juice or other liquid, or taken however you'd like.
