What Is Manglier?
"Described as “a horrible-tasting tea reputed to cure almost anything”, groundsel bush showed some of the most potent activity in the Boudreau et al. antidiabetic study. Traditionally, it was used to treat diabetes, inflamed kidneys, congestion, fever, and other flu-like symptoms. Though it is not well-known outside of Louisiana, this was one of the most highly regarded medicinal plants among Native American, Cajun, and Creole healers." ~Claudia S. Copeland, PhD
What is Manglier?
Scientific Name: Baccharis halimifolia L. Common Name: Groundsel Bush
In a recent study Manglier has been found to fight inflammation and is antiviral and an adaptogen (in other words - Manglier Tea can help you build your immune system and fight colds, flu and other viruses).
“Groundsel bush (Manglier) was found to mitigate pro-inflammatory and metabolically harmful changes that were induced by tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-) in adipocytes or by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in macrophages. Although documentation exists indicating that groundsel bush has been used in Creole folk medicine in Louisiana, to our knowledge, there are currently no published studies in peer-reviewed sources supporting any medicinal use of this plant.
The novel in vitro experiments described in the present study provide evidence that an ethanolic extract of groundsel bush promotes adipocyte differentiation, improves the endocrine profile of mature adipocytes, and mitigates inflammation-related changes known to promote metabolic dysfunction. The data reported herein provide a basis for further investigation of groundsel bush as a nutraceutical or dietary supplement with the potential to favorably alter metabolic function via its effects on adipocytes and macrophages.”
