The Tree Of Life: A Powerful History

Eastern White Pine needles have a rich history of medicinal use among Native American tribes, a tradition dating back centuries. Among these tribes, the Iroquois, Algonquin, and Ojibwa stand out for their profound connection to the tree and its remedies.
In the heart of the Great Lakes region, the Ojibwa people revered the Eastern White Pine as the "Tree of Life." They believed it held healing powers, which they tapped into through a variety of remedies. One such remedy was a potent pine needle tea, brewed from the tender, new growth needles. It was used to treat colds, fevers, and respiratory issues.

Anti-Viral Shikimic Acid

The presence of shikimic acid, a compound also found in star anise, has been historically noted in Traditional Chinese Medicine for its use in treating plagues and respiratory illnesses. Shikimic acid is a starting material in the synthesis of oseltamivir (Tamiflu as the trademarked name), a medication used to treat influenza, suggesting the potential of pine needles in supporting treatments for viral infections.
