Herbal teas are derived from plant materials, including leaves, stems, flowers, seeds, roots and fruits. From cancer-fighting properties to endurance boosting effects, herbal tea is for everyone. Here are some ways your body may be telling you it’s time to swap your favourite beverage for herbal tea instead.

1. You feel bloated

If you constantly feel bloated, herbal teas may help. Ginger contains the compounds gingerols and shogaols, which relax your intestinal muscles, thereby reducing inflammation and bloating. Peppermint also helps your digestive tract get rid of any built up gas. Peppermint contains menthol oil, which has an anti-spasmodic effect on your digestive tract, and soothes inflammation.

2. You’re having trouble sleeping

Although some herbal tea blends may contain ingredients that have caffeine, there are many that don’t. So if you’re having trouble getting a good night’s rest, chamomile tea may do the trick. It contains tryptophan, which is an amino acid known for its relaxing and anxiety-reducing effects. It helps our bodies relax, thus promoting sleep.

3. You have cramps or an upset stomach

Herbal teas can be very soothing too. Peppermint tea can help to relax your gastrointestinal system and help to stop nausea or an upset stomach. Lemon balm, skullcap tea, chamomile tea, dandelion root tea and fennel tea can also help to ease menstrual cramps.

4. You have dry, patchy skin or acne problems

Herbal teas are also great for the skin. For years, chamomile tea has been used to help relieve dry, patchy skin, acne, rashes, and inflammatory skin conditions. This is because it possesses flavonoids that have a strong inhibitory effect on free radicals. The flavonoids in rooibos tea have also been shown to possess anti-inflammatory functions, making it useful for treating rosacea or eczema.

5. You have high blood pressure

If you have high blood pressure or heart problems, drinking herbal tea may keep them at bay. Rooibos tea acts as a bronchodilator, ultimately decreasing resistance in your respiratory airway and increasing airflow to your lungs. It also reduces the activity of the angiotensin-converting enzyme, which is an enzyme that indirectly increases blood pressure by contracting blood vessels.

6. You have a weak immune system

Are you catching colds too often? It may be time for an intervention.
Herbal teas containing elderflower, turmeric, peppermint, and hibiscus all help to boost your immune system. Both turmeric tea and peppermint tea are able to ease the pain of upper respiratory problems like sore throats and sinus infections. Elderflower tea is an effective decongestant because it helps clear the nasal passages. It also encourages you to sweat, allowing for the body to rid itself of toxins by using sweat as the conduit.

7. You’re stressed

If you’re feeling stressed or anxious, herbal tea may just be exactly what you need to relax. Lavender is known for its calming qualities, so it should come as no surprise that the tea is used primarily for stress relief. Green tea contains L-theanine amino acids that can help you relax and passionfruit tea can as well. Another herb to curb stress is lemon balm as it can help to lighten your uptight and anxious mood.
Herbal teas are a treat for all occasions. Whether you are having a tea party, or simply want to escape the cold in the office, herbal teas will never fail you. To get your dose of quality organic herbal teas, visit https://www.nilufertea.com/blog/shop/
