Most of us have heard or read about the benefits of drinking green tea. I have also outlined the research and benefits in one of my blog postings. Although green tea has a multitude of benefits, additional benefits can be added by including other herbs. For example my personal blend called “E=MC2“, is organic green Sencha tea with organic Astragalus root and organic Goji berries. This tea provides several health benefits. Let’s discuss them.
Astragalus – Anyone who’s heard of Astragalus has heard about its ability to improve immune function. Over the last 10 years a tremendous amount of research has been done on how Astragalus effects our immune system. There are over 100 scientific studies that show Astragalus’ best immune effect is preventing infections. So this is great tea to drink now when the flu season is upon us.
Goji Berries – Unique among fruits because they contain all essential amino acids, goji berries also have the highest concentration of protein of any fruit. They are also loaded with vitamin C, contain more carotenoids than any other food, have twenty-one trace minerals, and are high in fiber. Boasting 15 times the amount of iron found in spinach, as well as calcium, zinc, selenium and many other important trace minerals, there is no doubt that the humble goji berry is a nutritional powerhouse.
We have other great teas that taste great and are great for you. Teas like our Organic Lavender Sencha, 3 wonderful Chai Teas and many others. Come and see our holiday seasonal blends.
Wishing all the best in the upcoming New Year.
