Welcome back! In this newsletter series highlighting our An-tea-oxidant Sampler, we’ve covered Tea-tox, White Blueberry, and their ingredients and their health benefits. In this next two part series, we’ll be discussing our Ginger Lemongrass tea, and its ingredients too. It’s got Lemongrass, Ginger, Licorice, Peppermint leaves, Safflower, and Blue cornflowers! We’ll be covering the first three today, and the second three in a bit!
Lemongrass, also known as Citronella, not only tastes good, but also smells good! It’s a common scent in aromatherapy, a fresh, lemony, citrus smell (and flavor). Be sure to enjoy this tea’s scent as you sip. In addition to being an antioxidant, it has microbial properties, which means that this too is an excellent anti-cavity tea! Besides preventing tooth decay, Lemongrass has anti-inflammatory properties which is great for your heart, and can help ease menstrual pains. As a natural diuretic, which helps detox your kidneys and get rid of excess water in your body, this is especially helpful if you’re bloating (or want to get rid of toxins). It’s also been used for ages to promote a healthy digestive system. Great smell, scent, and properties? Sign me up!
Ginger is a super plant that smells, and tastes great. Its spicier flavor is sure to complement the milder Lemongrass. It’s really rooting for your health! Ginger has long been used to help treat and ease nausea, and other related motion sicknesses like dizziness or stomach upsets in general. And because of the antioxidants, it’s another ingredient that’s good for preventing various cancers, and supporting your immune system. It also has trace amounts of magnesium and potassium. This is most people’s go-to plant for digestion and relieving stomach upsets, so this is sure to be an excellent addition to your tea cabinet.
We’ll be closing off today’s newsletter with Licorice! Whether you love it or hate it, there’s no denying it’s history or benefits. Like Ginger, this is a powerful root that’s been used for hundreds of years in Europe and Asia to treat a variety of illnesses. Nowadays, it’s a fantastic supplement. Like Ginger, it has antioxidant properties and is also a diuretic! This helps rid the body of toxins via urination, which helps get rid of excess fat, salt, water, toxins, and helps out your liver and kidneys. Licorice also helps stimulate your digestive system, and eliminate constipation. It’s also an anti-inflammatory disease which can help ease arthritis symptoms, menstrual symptoms, endometriosis symptoms and other inflammatory diseases.
Ginger Lemongrass tea is a great tea for your digestive system, and for stomach upsets. In the next newsletter, we’ll be covering the rest of the ingredients in Ginger Lemongrass!
