Ingredients & Benefits:
Cardamom is a spice originally grown in India. It’s popularity, however, has since grown to include the entire world. Its intense, sweet flavor has been used as a flavoring additive in cooking, but its medicinal properties are what make it special. Cardamom is antioxidant-rich, which is great for supporting healthy blood-pressure levels and overall wellness. It’s also long been used as a diuretic, which can release any buildup of toxins in your urinary tract. Cardamom is also good for gut health, and may alleviate bad breath.
Organic Licorice Root
Licorice root has been used in drinks and tinctures since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Aside from tasting sweet, licorice root has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. It may also help improve digestion.
Fennel is another great immunity supporter because of its vitamin C content. Fennel is also full of antioxidant-rich polyphenols. It’s known to aid digestion, which can be a great way to support a healthy immune system. Fennel tastes a little bit like licorice. Alongside the other ingredients in this blend, it’s flavor provides a slightly bitter note.
Ginger has been used in cooking, tea, and in medicines for a very long time. Many of ginger’s benefits come from the compound gingerol, which is a powerful antioxidant. Ginger has been the star of some interesting new studies which suggest ginger could enhance your immune response.
Cinnamon is a popular spice in Ayurvedic medicine because it has so many healthy properties. Along with having antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, cinnamon can act as a prebiotic, which is great for digestion. It’s also been used to help keep blood sugar levels in the normal and healthy range. Plus, it just plain tastes great.
Of course roses are beautiful to look at, but they’re also great for your health. Rose petals contain high amounts of vitamins E and C, which can promote healthy skin and a healthy immune system. Rose petals are also high in phytonutrients, which can help fight off free radicals and promote overall health.
Another, bright, citrus flavor, lemongrass adds another big boost of lemon taste to this tea blend. Aside from lovely flavor, lemongrass has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which are important in maintaining a healthy brain.
