Health Benefits of Herbal Tea
by LeDeidre May 2020
Herbal teas have been used for thousands of years for their health benefits. Our ancient ancestors used herbs and plants for healing ailments, and many of the herbal treatments were prepared as teas. The Greek physician Hippocrates is quoted with “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.” In modern medicine herbs became the active ingredients in pharmaceutical medications. Herbal teas also known as wellness teas, serve to support the body and restore balance. These teas are blended with a functional purpose rather than for taste. Some herbal teas are blended with flavorful botanicals and fruits.
A great crafted herbal tea can be blended for both function and taste. While that is double the pleasure, wellness herbal teas are widely promoted and consumed for their health benefits. A tea lover can brew a cup of herbal tea to soothe an upset stomach, to relax and calm, to sleep better, to take the edge off PMS symptoms, to support hormonal balance. Many herbs and plants consumed as teas are full of antioxidants and boost the immune system. It is no wonder that grocery store tea shelves are starting to look like a medicine cabinet.
A few popular herbs used in teas with some of these benefits are peppermint, chamomile, and red raspberry. Licorice root, nettle, hibiscus, chaste berries, fennel are also great as herbal teas and used for many health benefits. Herbs are often used for natural respiratory issues, easing digestion, supporting the immune system, and natural stress relief. If you need another reason to consume herbal teas, consider the fact that these are some of the healthiest beverages you can drink, a great alternative to sugary drinks. We hope you find your favorite herbal tea and enjoy!
