Java Tea Leaves

Teas | Medicinal Plants | Aromatic Herbs | Tisanes | Infusions

Java Tea, with the scientific name Orthosiphon stamineus, is a medicinal plant (shrub) often found in its natural form, for infusions, in capsules or as an ingredient in compound food supplements, mainly used for its important properties with regard to diuresis, i.e. the elimination of liquids through urine. Java tea is native to Asia and Australia, with the leaves and ends of the plant's stems being the parts of herbal interest.


This plant has substances in its composition that, although little known, play an important role in health, with usefulness in the prevention and/or treatment of various conditions. Favonoids, potassium and magnesium salts, organic acids (such as caffeic acid, benzoic acid...), phytosterols, phospholipids, saponins and tannins are some of the main elements in the composition of Java Tea, responsible for its beneficial health properties, as mentioned below:


  • Diuretic: the marked effect on increasing urine production makes Java Tea an important anti-fluid retention agent, useful in slimming regimes, anti-cellulite treatments, fluid retention (edema) and feelings of swollen legs (venous insufficiency);


  • Urinary infections: due to its diuretic effect, the treatment or prevention of urinary tract infections, from cystitis, urethritis, kidney lithiasis (stones) to prostatitis, is one of its most common uses;


  • Depurative and detoxifying: the increase in fluid production consequently promotes the elimination of toxins and unwanted waste through the urine, which is why it is a reference plant in slimming regimes for the treatment of excess weight and obesity;


  • Antihypertensive: due to its diuretic effect and the absence of exciting compounds in its composition, it is a useful plant as an adjunct in the treatment of hypertension, preventing damage to the arteries responsible for the increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases;


  • Gout: very beneficial in preventing episodes of gout or hyperuricaemia, an inflammatory and metabolic disease characterized by high levels of uric acid in the blood, due to the promotion of the elimination of uric acid via the urine;


  • Digestive and anti-inflammatory: promotes digestion, especially of fats, contributes to the proper functioning of the gallbladder and protects the liver against inflammatory processes.
