Find your fave flavour
Are you crunching on carrot sticks and taking the stairs two at a time? Those little lifestyle tweaks are great ways to improve your health without unbalancing your life.
Swapping a calorie-laden latte for a cup of refreshing herbal tea is yet another small switch that offers big benefit. Here's five great reasons to put the kettle on:
1. Improve Digestion
Peppermint leaves have been used for centuries to ease the digestive system, and are a great way to combat bloating. Drinking a cup of peppermint tea after eating a meal will assist the body in extracting and utilising essential nutrients and vitamins that will help banish any post-meal discomfort in the stomach.
2. Reduce Stress
Natural ingredients that are found in many herbal tea blends help lower stress levels, which aid a peaceful sleep pattern. So when you want to relax the body and put your mind at ease try a cup of Chamomile and Vanilla tea and enjoy its soothing scents and delicious bursts.
3. Lose Weight
The rumours are true; herbal tea can help when you want to lose weight! Drinking Green Tea is a great way to keep you naturally hydrated, thus suppressing the desire to snack. It also increases your metabolism. No wonder green tea is the perfect accompaniment to help you lose weight alongside a healthy and balanced diet.
4. Build immune system
Berry flavoured herbal teas do not only kick-start your day with the explosive taste of berries, but did you know it can also help build your immune system? Ingredients commonly found in berry teas, such as Rosehips and Hibiscus, are full of rich vitamins that can be found in mild medicines. They support the body in fighting against common viruses like colds and flu!
5. Beat aging
Start the day with a cup of cinnamon herbal tea to fight away the signs of aging. A rich, warming mix of cinnamon, citrus peel and ginger is all you need to deliver all of the anti-oxidants that your body will need to maintain healthy circulation and to keep those wrinkles at bay!
