Benefits of Herbal Tea

Herbal Tea

Hello Everyone, 

Today I want to share about herbal tea. This past weekend I purchased a tea pot with a strainer to make loose leaf teas. My mother in law is big on these teas and she has been telling me that there are certain herbs that you can drink as tea that is better than taking vitamins. The reason for this is because herbs are FULL of vitamins and minerals in themselves! So check out these teas, get some and drink it! 

Nettle Tea:

Minerals - calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, sulfur and zinc

Vitamins - A, B1, B2, B3, B5, C, E, K & folate

Nettle is also known to have Phytochemicals which are natural occurring plant compounds that prevent free-radicals damage. It is believed to help prevent and treat many diseases and sicknesses such as allergies, anemia, inflammatory disorders. As well as effect your blood sugar levels, therefore can help with diabetes. 

Other benefits - Helps coughs, nasal congestion, acne, inflammation, arthritis and many more.

Sage Tea:

Vitamins - A, B6, B12, C

Wormwood Tea:

This tea is best for your skin. If you are suffering from a skin disorder. Try drinking this tea daily. Its best to drink before eating, wait a little bit after drinking to allow your body to absorb it. 

Benefits - Digestion Problems, heals and provides healthy skin including conditions such as dry, itchy, eczema. Expels parasites and worms. Drink before heavy meals to prevent gas and bloating. 

There are 3 great teas that you should definitely give a try. Remember these teas for this such as skin problems, allergies and such wont make the problem go away right away, you'll have to commit to drinking it a couple times a day, daily for a few weeks or so. 

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did learning about it! Wishing you all the best!

With Love:
