Cistus Creticus

This plant dominates the entire Mediterranean, but only in northern Crete does it contain sufficient amounts of oil to make it effective.

It has 20 times more antioxidants than fresh lemon juice, 3 times more antioxidants than green tea and has detoxifying properties. It detoxifies heavy toxic metals from cigarette smoke, protects the heart 4 times more effectively than red wine, and strengthens the immune system. Stronger than vitamin C & E.
