A Little Prebiotic contains a combination of ingredients that will act in three key ways to regulate the gut microbiome:
- its anti-microbial properties will rid the gut of bad bacteria and microbial growth, in order to affect balance and regulation of gut microbiome,
- its high prebiotic potential will prepare the gut for growth and activity of beneficial microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi in your tummy, and
- anti-inflammatory components will help soothe the gut and reduce digestive discomfort while maintaining regularity.
We believe that working towards and maintaining a healthy gut is vitally important to achieve focus, relaxation, and a positive outlook. This tea offers a range of ingredients with prebiotic properties that set you up for gaining and maintaining optimal gut health.

Caution: Ingredients may not be suitable if pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult your health professional.
Chicory root is packed with prebiotic fibre (inulin), that feeds the bacteria in the gut that is beneficial in reducing inflammation and maximising absorption of nutrients. Inulin also maintains digestive regularity, supports metabolism, as well as assisting with blood sugar control.
Licorice root is soothing on the stomach, assists in stress reduction by providing adrenal support and promoting digestion and a healthy gut. It's high prebiotic potential supports the gut by fostering production of healthy microbiota to support digestion and nutrient absorption. Its sweet smoothness is a delight, softening and rounding off more astringent and bitter flavours. Refreshing at any time of day.
Dandelion root is crucial in digestion and cleansing digestive pathways. Its primary function encourages bile production and speeds up the elimination of toxins and wastes in the liver. It has strong prebiotic potential, encouraging a healthy balance of microbiota in the gut.
Nettle leaf provides a number of benefits, including providing hormonal balance and synchrony, aiding in proper liver function, and supporting healthy iron levels. The leaves are also astringent and high in vitamin C, purifying the system and building immunity.
The calendula flower has been traditionally used medicinally for soothing and healing via its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. It soothes the gut, providing relief from cramps, as well as clearing congested skin and stimulating collagen production.
Lemon verbena is an underrated herb, delivering both therapeutic and health benefits. It has traditionally been used to bolster immunity, treating colds and fevers, for providing relief from indigestion and digestive spasms, as well as providing metabolic support and aiding in weight loss. It has also been widely used to support anxiety and insomnia. Its lemony aroma and refreshing flavour makes it a beautiful addition to many tea blends.
Being free of caffeine, drinking peppermint leaf in a tea is perfect at any time of day, be it before or after a big meal, for appetite control between meals, an afternoon energy boost, or digestion support during our resting and sleep time. The anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties of peppermint tea makes it an all-rounder, from freshening breath and fighting the common cold, to cleansing the digestive tract. The freshness of peppermint leaf is all you need for instant tummy relief and support for uncomfortable digestive issues including bloating, indigestion, cramps and reflux.
Ginger is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds and has a long history of use in traditional medicine. Ginger appears to be highly effective against nausea, and is also used to reduce muscle pain and soreness. It has strong anti-inflammatory effects and is thought to be highly effective against chronic indigestion.
