Sutherladia Tea is indigenous to South Africa. The tea is regarded as the most profound and multi-purpose of all medicinal plants in Southern Africa. Because of its efficacy as a safe tonic for diverse health conditions it has enjoyed a long history of use by all cultures in Southern Africa. Sutherlandia tea powerfully assists the body to mobilize its own resources to cope with diverse physical and mental stresses and it should therefore be more correctly known as an adaptogenic tonic.
The traditional Tswana name of ‘Phetola’ alludes to this: ‘Phetola’ means it changes, meaning that the plant changes the course of many illnesses into a favourable outcome. The North Sotho name of Mmusa pelo wa noka means the medicine is able to make you feel younger and sexually active. The medicine is also known to be a powerful blood-purifier or all-purpose tonic.
