Essiac® is a herbal supplement that has been around for over a century, and its formula has been attributed to Rene Caisse, a nurse who learned about it from the Ojibwa nation. She later prepared the formula as a tea, which she called Essiac®. The name is derived from her surname spelled in reverse. The Essiac® formula has been used for decades and has a rich history. Essiac® is now a registered trademark owned by Larry Poirier and Lucille Perreault, who are committed to preserving Rene Caisse’s legacy of healing.

The brand’s tagline, “Restoring Life & Legacy,” reflects its commitment to helping people improve their health and well-being. Essiac® has been used as an immune system support blend, and it is now available in a new product, the Essiac SuperFood Blend. This product has a 10.6oz superfood with Essiac’s traditional formula, prebiotics, and a 4:1 concentrated antioxidant blend. It also includes organic vegetable blend, prebiotic, and superfoods with fiber. Consumers can take this product once a day as a therapeutic dose, mixed with juice, water, or as part of a smoothie.

What sets the Essiac SuperFood Blend apart from other products is its inclusion of Essiac’s powerful immune system support blend and many concentrated extracts, compared to others that only have dried powdered herbs. The brand recognition of Essiac and the legacy of Rene Caisse’s dedication to healing also differentiates itself from competitors.

Essiac’s legacy lives on through Lucille Perreault and Larry Poirier’s dedication to maintaining the formula’s original ratios. They ensure that the Essiac® herbal tea powder, liquid tincture, or vegetable capsules sold are of high quality and have the same ratios as Caisse’s original recipe. 

Nurse Caisse treated patients at a clinic in Bracebridge, Ontario, which was provided by the town for free. She accepted donations to support her operations, and in honour of her legacy, a statue of her stands in the same town. Today, Essiac® is available in 51 countries worldwide, with over 70 research papers on the formula and its components.

Essiac’s mission and vision statements reflect their commitment to holistic wellness and the power of whole plants to improve lives. They believe that people can overcome obstacles and live their legacy, transcending survival. Essiac’s vision is a world in which everyone can thrive, and they are committed to providing effective, natural whole plant solutions that restore life and legacy for all.

Lucille Perreault and Larry Poirier are the owners of Essiac and Rene’s Naturals. They have a wealth of experience in the wellness industry, with Lucille holding a PhD from Carleton University and an MBA from Queen’s University, while Larry is a graduate of Integrative Herbal Medicine in Supportive Cancer Care from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, as well as an MBA from Queen’s University. They have also been involved in the ownership of five multimodal therapy clinics and are committed to improving people’s lives through natural solutions.

In conclusion, Essiac® is a herbal tea formula that has been used for over a century, with its origins traced back to Rene Caisse. The Essiac SuperFood Blend is a new product that carries on Rene’s traditional formula, making it an excellent immune system support blend. Essiac’s mission and vision statements reflect their commitment to holistic wellness and whole plant solutions to improve people’s lives.
