Cistus incanus (or “Pink Rockrose”) Extract in a 45% organic corn alcohol solution; offered in a 4 fl oz liquid tincture.
Cistus incanus is a source of polyphenols, proanthocyanadins, bioflavonoids, catechins, gallic acid, rutin and other beneficial bioactive compounds. Promising early research indicates that the herb may support the body’s own natural effects on the gastric mucosal lining to disrupt gastrointestinal biofilm regarding potentially harmful substances without significant adverse effects on healthful biofilm.*
Cistus has demonstrated strong antioxidant and other properties supporting the traditional use of Cistus for a wide range of systems for health, immunity and skin health, without notable or gastric irritation.* It may also support oral and throat hygiene and cardiovascular health.*

Research & More Information
BioPure’s Cistus comes from a shrub, Cistus incanus tauricus, native to warm southern Mediterranean locations such as the Chalkidiki peninsula of Greece. Commonly referred to as the “Gray-haired Rock Rose”, Cistus incanus prefers rocky soils and has delicately wrinkled, 5-petaled pink flowers, with leaves and stems covered with tiny glandular hairs. Cistus incanus has played an important role in Greek culture since the 4th century BC. The plant exudes a sticky sweet smelling resin called labdanum that has been used medicinally and in soaps, perfumes, essential oils and incense. Tea made from the plant was drunk at any time of the day for relaxation, thirst-quenching, or health benefits.
Cistus incanus has been traditionally used in the past and shows promise in modern applications for a number of health benefits including skin health, joint health, kidney health, systemic health, as well as gastrointestinal, urinary tract and vascular health.* The potential health benefits of Cistus incanus are associated with the antioxidant properties of the plant.* Chemical analysis of Cistus incanus has revealed the presence of a number of bioactive compounds including proanthocyanidins, bioflavonoids, catechins, gallic acid, rutin, and other glycosides, that exert the above health benefits and contribute to supporting the body’s immune system.* One of the attractive things about Cistus is that this natural herbal source of polyphenols demonstrates its beneficial effects without any adverse gastric effects.
The health benefits of Cistus incanus tauricus are available to you from BioPure either as a water and 45% biologic alcohol tincture, or as loose tea. Both products come from the buds, flowers, leaves and stems of 100% organic wild plants grown in their native Mediterranean soils and climate. Our dried botanical is loose and is strong enough to use 3 or 4 times for steeping—and, we recommend this, because the goodness of Cistus continues to come out after more than one brew.
