Ninika Blood Cleanser


Directions: Put the Ninika ball or bark in a pot with 2 liters of water. Boil for 15 minutes. Pour a small glass’ worth (8 oz) and drink. Repeat 2 times per day, morning and evening, making sure to bring them to a boil each time before pouring a cup. When the water runs out, add more and repeat. Continue this process until the Ninika loses its flavor.  

Do not refrigerate. You can leave the herbs on the stove in the same saucepan or pot that you boil them in. As long as you consistently boil them everyday they will not spoil.

Ninika is a very potent blood cleanser. It has been used for thousands of years throughout Africa (most currently in West African countries including Burkina Faso and Togo) for many conditions and illnesses. It is a combination of 9 different barks and roots, the recipe of which was developed by the Tem people (currently located throughout West Africa). It is said that you won’t find a Tem healer without Ninika in his bag. Its highly effective blood cleansing properties helped it earn the name “the human being’s best friend”. This product usually accompanies other herbal recipes to fight hundreds of diseases. The modern diet often consists of salty chips, snacks, fatty meats, high fructose corn syrup, candy, sweets, and other foods that contain these toxins. They accumulate in the blood, leading to thicker, slower moving blood (high blood pressure), especially for those over the age of 30 whom have been consuming these toxins for several years. The blood travels to every organ in the body delivering nutrients. So, it is beneficial to use Ninika for maintenance and keeping the blood clean (we recommend at least 2 doses of Ninika per year). The herb comes in various forms, including a ball, loose bark and powder. Ninika is remarkably effective for the following:

  • Cleaning the blood of abnormal cells (that can lead to tumor growth and cancer)
  • Lowering blood pressure levels
  • Reducing blood cholesterol levels
  • Increasing immunity
  • Thyroid issues
  • Improving blemishes
  • Balancing hormones
  • Improving outlook and emotional well-being
