Make your tea medicinal
Nothing beats a hot drink during cold Irish weather. Before you sit down to your traditional cup of tea, consider herbal alternatives, which offer some wonderful health benefits. Here are a few favourites to try:
Primary herb for the reproductive and digestive system. It is a great digestive and detoxification aid; it can be drunk to curb gastrointestinal distress, upset stomachs, nausea, vomiting, menstrual and muscle cramps and morning sickness.
Soothing tea which relaxes muscles and the nervous system helping troubled sleep, stressful lives and anxiety. It is anti-inflammatory and relieves pain or joint problems. It is great for menstrual cramps, digestive issues and colic in babies.
Provides far more health benefits than black tea due to its high content of antioxidants which protect us against chronic diseases including many cancers. It boosts metabolism, energy levels and supports weight loss.
Stabilises blood sugar levels and improves insulin function reducing risk factors for diabetes. It protects heart health by lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It is used to boost vitality, stimulate circulation and clear congestion. It can also lessen common cold and flu symptoms and duration.
Supports good liver and gallbladder health. It is high in anti-oxidants which protect us from chronic diseases. It is a natural diuretic relieving any water retention, swelling and bladder or kidney problems. It is a prebiotic food and relieves poor digestion or lower bowel complaints and is rich in vitamins and minerals.
