What is Matula Tea?
Matula tea is a completely organic, wild herbal tea from South Africa that has strong anti-bacterial properties. In fact, scientific studies have shown it to be 98% effective against the eradication of all strains of H. pylori (helicobacter pylori) and 93% effective against Candida albicans (1). Even more, matula tea has shown to be effective against ulcers, Barrett’s esophagus and acid reflux, all of which can stem from H. pylori bacterial infection. Additionally, matula tea has been used to treat ulcerative colitis, non-ulcerative dyspepsia, dysbiosis, IBS and has shown to reduce inflammation in respect of diverticulitis (2). The best part is, the effectiveness against H. pylori was tested at 50% concentration (1 cup of tea per day), which was 93% effective. However, by increasing the dosage to 2 cups of matula tea per day, you can imagine the kind of results.

To be clear, the recommended usage of matula is two cups a day on an empty stomach for 30 days, so this equals 60 dosages. First, bring filtered water to boil, place one matula tea sachet in a cup/mug and pour boiling water into cup. You may add 1/2 tsp of Manuka honey for additional flavor (4). Basically, you’ll want to drink the tea slowly in the morning ½ an hour before breakfast and at night ½ hour before dinner or 1 hour after dinner. In fact, you’ll want to swirl the tea in your mouth before swallowing. In terms of the taste, Matula is quite enjoyable, which makes it a great herbal remedy.
Since the matula is in liquid form, it can easily reach, cover and saturate the infected area of the stomach lining. Thus, this allows sufficient time to eliminate the H. Pylori bacteria and beyond. (2)
