I like steeping teas overnight because I like the stronger flavor. You have said you do this, too, but I think I recall your saying with chamomile you lose the benefits if it sits too long. Do I remember correctly? How long can it steep?
Is there any problem with steeping teas like jiaguluan, rooibos, or ginger overnight? Can I store them in a the fridge for a few days and not lose their benefits (I like to ice them)?
Also, magnesium did not do anything for my son's tics, and adding some extra vit C almost seemed to make it worse. What could be going on neurologically to cause this? As far as family history, he has an aunt and grandfather with MS. I know that is an autoimmune issue, but it is the only disease anyone has involving the nerves so I mention it. Could this point to some neurological weakness?
Finally, I found a liver supplement with milk thistle, dandelion root, and artichoke leaf. Are there any benefits/drawbacks with something like this compared to bitters? (One thing I heard is dandelion root is a strong diuretic and can cause some of the same effects of rx diuretics over time.) Or, perhaps, it is something good in addition to bitters?
