General Description

Mora is a proprietary blend of the extracts of three plants Blackberry, Capirona, and Yarrow. Traditionally, Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) has been used to treat a number of medical conditions. It was used to help stop minor bleeding and to treat wounds, to treat inflammation in a number of conditions, fight fevers, treat gastrointestinal conditions, lessen heavy menstrual bleeding, and improve circulation. Some of the compounds found in Yarrow that may explain its medicinal benefits are apigenin, luteolin, centaureidin, casticin, artemetin, paulitin, isopaulitin, psilostachyin, desacetylmatricarin and sintenin.  Traditionally, blackberry leaf tea (Rubus fruticosus) has been used to treat parasites and Capirona (Calycophyllum spruceanum) to treat diabetes, soothe the skin and for fungal, bacterial and parasitic infections.
