“Aloha, my name is Dr. Randyl Rupar and we offer our 3-Day Purification Cellular cleanse here on the Big Island of Hawai`i. One of the natural products we incorporate in the cleansing experience is Hawaiian grown mamaki. Mamaki (Pipturus Albidus) (from the nettle family) is a tree or shrub with green leaves having prominent red veins. The premium leaves are hand plucked from the tips of the plant. The leaves come in a large variety of sizes. The highest quality of leaves is plucked from the top of the branch consisting of the three closest leaves to the new shoots.
Based on historical information this ancient Hawaiian mamaki has evolved on the islands before the Hawaiians arrived on the beaches of Hawaii. Mamaki is native to no other place in the world.
Mamaki is best known for its refreshing herbal tea and it's medicinal uses. Mamaki is naturally cholesterol and caffeine free. You can eat the leaves raw or cooked for it is a nutritious dark green leafy vegetable.” - Dr. Randyl Rupar, Hawaii
“I was not really a tea drinker, because I don't like its bitter taste, until I tasted mamaki tea. I first fell in love with its smooth and non-bitter taste, especially when I add some honey. Even my kids love it! My wife also loves to drink mamaki tea, especially a cup before bedtime. Drinking mamaki tea has helped me a lot, and my loved ones and friends love it too.” - Marino, Pastor
“As a cultural Hawaiian practitioner, I’ve learned of medicinal herbs from my parents who grew and collected mamaki from the forest. Mamaki tea is very useful to maintain a healthy life – physically and spiritually. I recommend mamaki tea to be a household item to many nations of people.” - James, Retired RCUH of Manoa-Ranger
“I have no particular experience with using mamaki, but I have been taught by the elders of my ohana and by my Kupuna (cultural teacher) that the mamaki has always been, since the origins of my ancestors, a very powerful, cultural, and medicinal plant with numerous benefits. Some of the benefits of this particular plant are to help maintain a healthy balance in everyday living.” - Arthur, Farmer and cultural practitioner
