Na­ture’s boost

Irish Examiner - Feelgood - - Food -

A pow­dered green tea de­vel­oped by a man who used herbs, in­clud­ing green tea, to man­age his Crohn’s dis­ease is on sale in Lidl this month as part of the Kick Start pro­gramme, an ini­tia­tive that sup­ports small sup­pli­ers. When Cork­man Sean McCarthy had his first Crohn’s at­tack nearly 20 years ago, he worked with a herbal­ist to tackle the causes. The ex­pe­ri­ence led him to qual­ify as a herbal­ist be­fore go­ing on to set up his own busi­ness, Natur­spharm. He con­ducted ex­ten­sive re­search into green tea and de­vel­oped his own brand, Na­ture­spharm Green Tea, which is avail­able in Lidl while stocks last €3.99 for 25g. “Some­times I am in awe of what this won­der­ful plant can do,” Sean said.
