The sheep sorrel herb has been considered a rich source of vitamin C, E, beta-carotene, and other carotenoids. In fact, in "The New Healing Herb," sheep sorrel is cited as one of the most potent antioxidant herbs known. Currently, however, it is most well-known within the alternative cancer treatment community as one of the main ingredients in several formulas such as Jon Barron’s Blood Support and René Caisse’s Essiac tea. Incidentally, Essiac is simply Caisse spelled backwards.
