Tea is Food, not medicine.
The plant kingdom is an abundant and rich resource for anyone interested in maintaining health and preventing disease. Herbs and herbal teas are a part of that wonderful resource.
Herbs taken as a tea, don’t act as a direct medicine, but as a gentle support for health and healthy function. They form part of our “food” and have been celebrated as such for centuries.
Herbal teas are a safe and gentle way to access the properties of the herbs, as part of our diet.
Herbal medicine, which concentrates the active ingredients of the herb or plant into a herbal tincture, is very different. It needs TGA approval for use and requires a prescription from a professionally trained and qualified Herbalist.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration clearly states that: “Generally a product that is swallowed will be either one form of a therapeutic good (a medicine) or a food.
Often, claims made about a product or the appearance of the product may suggest that it is a therapeutic good. However, the fact that health claims are made about a product does not automatically make it a therapeutic good.”
Therefore, all teas made by The Breastfeeding Tea Co are deemed a food with therapeutic benefits and are not medicine nor required to be registered with the TGA.
