4 Tea-riffic Health Benefits of Herbal Tea Blends
Tea is, without a doubt, one of the world’s most popular beverages and is synonymous with countries such as England, China, India, and Japan, to name but a few.
When it comes to our health and wellbeing, what we eat and drink on a daily basis is incredibly important yet many of us are guilty of not consuming anywhere near as many nutrients as we should be, and our health is suffering.
Obesity rates are up, life expectancies are down, more people are reliant on prescription drugs and medication than ever before, and something simply needs to be done before it is too late.
If you’re looking to improve your health and get your health and wellness back on track, something as simple as choosing a healthy tea blend could be a part of the solution. With healthy tea blends containing natural herbal ingredients, finding a healthy tea blend to suit your own specific health requirements has never been easier.
Here’s a look at 4 amazing health benefits of herbal tea blends.
Promotes rest and relaxation
When people think of tea, they tend to associate it with coffee, as people often consume it early in a morning, and some blends do indeed contain caffeine.
In truth, though, some blends of tea, such as Chamomile tea, promote rest, relaxation, and sleep, and are a great way to relax after a long and stressful day.
Herbal teas designed to promote sleep and relaxation are enriched with ingredients such as chamomile, which has a calming effect on the body and helps promote the production of hormones responsible for tiredness and relaxation.
You’ll also likely find lavender and lemon balm in them, which also help people to switch off and relax, making it a great stress buster.
Strengthens the immune system
Right now, the need for a strong and healthy immune system has never been greater.
Your immune system is what protects your body against illness and disease, and so naturally, the stronger and healthier your immune system is, the stronger and healthier you will be by default.
The immune system functions more efficiently when it has access to nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which is why herbal immunity tea blends are so beneficial.
These tea blends are enriched with ingredients packed full of polyphenols, which function as antioxidants in the body. Antioxidants help to protect your cells and destroy toxins and free radicals in the body which can attack your cells and damage them.
By drinking tea blends containing herbal ingredients loaded full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, your immune system will function better than ever, helping to protect you against a variety of different health issues.
Promotes gut health
Gut health tea blends are very beneficial for people looking to improve the health of their guts and digestive systems.
Your gut is home to millions upon millions of bacteria which play important roles in your overall health and wellbeing, particularly when it comes to your digestion.
Our Tummy Tea blend contains ingredients such as cocoa shell, rose petal, and Ripe pu-erh, along with polyphenols that help to inhibit the production of bad bacteria and promote the production of good bacteria.
The good bacteria that this tea blend promotes have been linked with numerous health benefits, including protection against inflammatory bowel disease, type-2 diabetes, improved digestion and nutrient absorption, and a whole lot more besides.
On top of that, the Tummy Tea blend also contains ingredients which possess antimicrobial properties which have been found to destroy toxins and dangerous substances in the gut and digestive tract, while also enhancing healthy gut bacteria levels.
May help reduce blood pressure
High blood pressure, or hypertension, as it is also known, is a potentially fatal condition that affects around 1 billion people all over the globe. To make matters worse, it is also very difficult to diagnose as there are no obvious symptoms. In fact, because of this, it is known as the ‘silent killer’.
Hypertension is so dangerous because it can increase your risk of suffering a stroke or heart attack, plus it can also cause weakened arteries, kidney damage, and vision problems.
Whereas it can be controlled by prescription drugs and medications, these drugs often cause their own problems which is why controlling it naturally whenever possible, is the much better option.
The good news for tea drinkers is the fact that there are many herbal tea blends which contain active ingredients which have been found to lower blood pressure, especially if used in conjunction with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Ginger, for example, which can be found in our Immunity tea has been found to help relax the blood vessels and promote healthy circulation and blood flow.
Studies have found that consuming herbal tea can help to reduce systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels when compared with people in a placebo group that didn’t consume the tea.
