Types of Herbal Tea and their Health Benefits
The Wellness Tea does more than just taste good.
Boosts Immune System
When thinking of herbal tea, the first health benefit that comes to most people’s minds is its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are plentiful in herbal teas, so drinking just one hot (or cold) cup of The Wellness Tea means pumping your body full of illness-fighting warriors. Ginger is just one ingredient found in The Wellness Tea that strengthens the immune system.
Antioxidants are not only beneficial for your immune system but also for your brain; they assist in boosting brain function and promoting brain health. Think of antioxidants as a “corrosion preventer” that helps the body clear away impurities, provides protection against damage-causing cells, and improve your chances of staying healthier for longer.
The anti-inflammatory powers found in The Wellness Tea are all thanks to a magical ingredient called turmeric. Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric that gives it its anti-inflammatory abilities- as well as that bright orangey golden color the spice is known for.
Drinking an herbal tea (like The Wellness Tea) that includes turmeric is a great way to make sure you receive the benefits of curcumin as well as the soothing effects of the tea itself. Add in a splash of turmeric-infused herbal tea to your diet and every system in your body will be blessed with its healing properties.
Organic tea is full of amazing benefits, one of those being better digestive health. Ginger and turmeric teas can calm the stomach when feeling nauseous. The ingredients work together to settle the stomach and ease any bloating. While ginger and turmeric are great for the digestive track, the most used tea ingredient for digestive health is chamomile.
Chamomile has natural antispasmodic properties in it which is amazing for individuals suffering from IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). The chamomile prevents muscles in the digestive track from spazzing or contracting as much, lowering one’s trip-count to the bathroom.
Controls Blood Sugar Levels
For those of you looking for a healthy and delicious way to replace your favorite sweet drink while still feeling satisfied, pick up a cup of The Wellness Tea instead. While an herbal tea blend like this one might not seem like an exciting option compared to a sugary cup of espresso, it should not be overlooked.
A study from BMJ Open found that groups of people who drank more herbal tea than others had a lower rate of diabetes. That’s why our organic tea blend is full of ashwagandha root and milk thistle seed, two ingredients known to reduce blood sugar levels, improve metabolism, and improve insulin function in the body.
Since tea has significantly less caffeine than coffee, it produces a sort of energized calm rather than a buzzing, jittery effect espresso is notorious for. Some teas actually have no caffeine- like The Wellness Tea- which make for a wonderful way to wind down the evening without being worried about a sleepless night.
The simple act of brewing tea is also calming. Preparing this organic herbal blend, seeping it, and watching the steam float away is very therapeutic. Coffee is meant to give your mind a jolt, while tea is meant to give your mind a break. The chamomile and lemon balm in our blend will surely put you at ease.
Nothing feels more refreshing, invigorating, and replenishing than a freshly brewed cup of tea. Well, other than water, of course. The Wellness Tea is loaded with polyphenols (antioxidants), vitamins, and minerals that keep the body functioning at its optimal level and keep you feeling healthy from the inside out.
On the topic of cleansing, The Wellness Tea also assists with weight management and is fantastic for intermittent fasting or detoxing. Thanks to ginger, dandelion root, and milk thistle seeds, our tea fills up the stomach, helping you feel full for longer and curbing your appetite while hydrating the body. Herbal teas do not break fasting, so use their benefits to your advantage when you start a cleanse.
Improves Heart Health
Did you know that natural, organic herbal tea (like The Wellness Tea) is scientifically connected with better heart health? There have been several studies conducted that confirm the positive connection between drinking tea and having a lower risk for heart problems down the road.
There was one study compiled in 2016 that reported a significant reduction for heart attack and stroke risk (related to coronary calcium) in study participants who drank at least one to three cups of tea every day. Luckily for you, our all-natural blend uses lemon balm to help keep your heart healthy.
Downing a double-shot of espresso, caramel macchiato, or iced vanilla late is how many people start their day for a quick boost and a tasty treat. Coffee just puts one in the mindset to get things done and start moving. However, coffee is packed with caffeine, so caffeine-sensitive individuals need an alternate solution.
The Wellness Tea provides the energy boost that caffeine-sensitive individuals crave. Our organic herbal tea blend is infused with astragalus and ashwagandha which ignites the brain and puts one in a focused mindset for the day ahead. Think of this as a “soft” energy boost that subtly clears the mind.
Improves Skin Health
The natural polyphenols found in The Wellness Tea act in cohesion with the elasticity in one’s skin. Those polyphenols (antioxidants) slow down the aging process by reducing skin damage and replenishing aging skin cells. This makes the skin (plus the nails and hair) take on a youthful appearance. Who knew a cup of herbal tea a day could lead to radiant skin?
Individuals who are prone to acne breakouts also benefit from the rich compounds found in turmeric, ashwagandha, and milk thistle seed. Since these three ingredients are antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and rich in vitamins, the appearance of acne is reduced and breakouts are prevented from occurring as often.
