Best teas to boost immunity

Did you know that 82% of global consumers take vitamins or supplements to maintain their health? Are you taking the right ones? If you're looking for a remedy to boost your immunity, you're in for a treat. So, grab your favourite mug, get comfy, and let's dive into the world of immunity teas. We're about to explore the top 3 blends, the herbs that make them effective, and the secrets to sipping tea to help you achieve a better you.

How does immunity tea work?

Tea, a beverage cherished for its calming effect, goes beyond its soothing warmth. In a world where our bodies fight a daily battle against free radicals, our immune system sometimes needs a superhero. Aging, bad eating habits, smoking, and the hustle of daily life can take a toll on our health, potentially leading to stress that ages us faster and make us more vulnerable to disease.

Immunity teas contain antioxidants like polyphenols, with Matcha Green Tea being a great example. It’s not just a trendy drink but a shield of antioxidants to help protect you from everyday chaos. But here's the magic – different teas release different antioxidants, making each brew a unique solution to improve your health. See it as an invisible support for your immune system, perfect for those 'under-the-weather' days.

Which herbs are beneficial to boost immunity?

94% prioritise functional beverages as their go-to elixir for a healthier lifestyle. Functional beverages are not just a choice, they’re a lifestyle commitment. As health takes the spotlight, the majority opt for drinks that don't just quench thirst but also contribute to overall wellbeing. Now, let's dive into the science behind the immunity-boosting herbs:

What is the correct way to drink tea?

1. Moderate your tea consumption:

Herbal tea is a soothing and refreshing substitute beverage to normal tea or coffee, which can help you meet your daily hydration goals. It should be consumed in moderation, not exceeding 3-4 cups per day.

2. Mind the gap of tea and mealtime:

Timing is everything. To optimise the benefits of the ingredients, give at least 30 minutes between your tea and meals. Let your body absorb the goodness without any interference or let’s say snacking.

3. No tea before bed:

Drinking tea close to bedtime is definitely not recommended. You need to let your body rest by avoiding tea a few hours before you sleep. Even chamomile or lavender blends if they have caffeine tea blended with them.

4. Sweeten with caution:

While sugar may be tempting with its sweet taste, it's not a suitable addition to your wellbeing journey. Steer clear of adding sugar to your tea and consider opting for natural sweeteners like honey instead.
