7 Benefits of Drinking Herbal Tea

Saturday, March 5, 2016

There’s just something about a soothing, warm cup of herbal tea on a blustery day or a mason jar filled to the brim with delicious and cold herbal iced tea on a sunny day.
 But besides being a tasty, warming, and a caffeine-free pick-me-up, herbal tea is jam packed with many health benefits that may just convince you to start drinking it. Drinking herbal tea can also be a great source of vitamins and minerals and has even been told to include more than your average vitamin capsule.

Herbal tea isn’t actually made from "tea" which is a specific kind of plant. It is an infusion of leaves, seeds, roots, or bark extracted in hot water forming a tea-like warm or cold drink. In drinking a well-steeped herbal tea, we get all the plant’s benefits in an easily digestible form

So what exactly are the health benefits of drinking herbal tea? Here's a few to start!

1) Reduces restlessness and insomnia
It has been proven that herbal tea can actually help you sleep better! I like to drink the Teami Relax Tea and use my teami infuser at the end of the night to help me unwind and relax before bed. It includes 5 soothing ingredients such as Lavender Flower, Chamomile, Lemon Grass, Orange peel, and Valerian Root extract. It also contains potassium, calcium, and vitamin B.

2) Can help prevent and treat colds
Most all herbal teas are packed with vitamins and minerals that can keep you healthy when sickness hits your house, neighborhood, friend's house, work, church, or day care. 

3) Calms muscles and mind
Did you know that drinking herbal tea alone can relax your whole body? I read recently that several athletes drink herbal tea after using their body to perform. It helps calm their body down after intensely working it out. This can be the same for a stressed mom with loads to do, a father with endless work, or a teen with a test coming up.

4) Can calm and relax an upset tummy
I end up with an upset tummy often due to stress. Drinking herbal tea can easily help relax your upset tummy and give you some relief. It can work almost the same as taking medicine from the store but is much safer and better for you.

5) Hydrates your body
I love drinking plenty of water throughout the day, but not everyone does. Herbal tea can help hydrate your body which is much needed to help your brain and body function properly.

6) Aromatherapy
Just by holding the cup in your hands and breathing the scents in, you are doing your body good with aromatherapy. Aromatherapy helps address your body's needs and can reduce stress and pain levels.

7) Can promote weight loss
There are certain herbal teas out there that can actually help with weight loss! So you are getting all the benefits mentioned above but can also lose weight. Some teas include spicy cinnamon tea, teami colon cleanse, and teami skinny tea
Just by drinking herbal tea you can make all sorts of significant changes to your mood, your skin, your sense of well-being and energy.

Have I convinced you yet?
Give herbal tea a try, but make sure you are choosing a brand with quality ingredients.
I suggest taking a look at all of the blends from teami.
They have several options to choose from and are all natural and do good for your body.
What is your favorite herbal tea to drink?
All my love,
