Hey guys! Today I’ve got a great guest post for you all from Enozia Vakil of Beauty Junction Online. She’s got some great ideas about health, and today she’s sharing 5 kickass teas to jumpstart your mornings!
Can’t do without your morning cuppa? That’s great! Tea makes for an excellent healthier alternative to a can of soda or even coffee. In fact, most teas are chock full of antioxidants which make them a powerful food choice. Here’s to making your choice easier and discovering 5 of the not-so-well-known, but most kickass teas.
Fennel seeds have been in use for centuries as a natural remedy for almost all digestive system complaints, which is why fennel tea is a great pick. One of the best benefits of fennel tea is that it helps tackle indigestion naturally, and reduces bloating, flatulence, and other related symptoms, thereby improving digestive health.
From boosting metabolism to fighting free radicals (it’s full of antioxidants!), there’s a lot white tea can do. This tea has been found to possess amazing health benefits, especially for the cardiovascular system, and its anti-aging properties help improve skin health and reduce the visible signs of aging including wrinkles, pigmentation, and fine lines. The polyphenols in this tea have even been found to help prevent cancer as well as help your body fight any existing cancer!
Parsley tea may be a little uncommon, but makes for a great nourishing beverage. This herb is a rich source of many minerals and nutrients that the body needs, and also possesses chemoprotective action, which means it helps the body fight against cancer causing agents. Plus, it also gives the body a good dose of vitamin C, vitamin A, beta carotene, and folic acid.
Packed with anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties, ginger is one of the best herbs you can add to your diet, and what could be better than starting your day with a cup of ginger tea? This soothing tea can help spike metabolism, relieve nausea, tackle inflammation, calm down the digestive system and also improve blood circulation.
Just a little squirt of lemon juice to your cup of tea can make all the difference, and can do everything from aiding decongestion to boosting metabolism. In fact, starting your day with a cup of lemon tea is one of the best ways to speed up your weight loss efforts, control blood sugar levels, alkalize your body, and give your body a good dose of vitamin C.
