Herbal Tea and Its Benefits
One of the main components in Dosha Pops are herbal teas that can be found in your own cabinet. From Chai to Hibiscus, the health benefits of consuming tea seem almost infinite. Dosha Pops, in line with the Ayurvedic lifestyle, provide these benefits:
Our herbal tea recipes blend the flavors of these different botanicals with the most highly regarded Ayurvedic spices — such as turmeric, ginger, and cardamom to name a few — resulting in a variety of herbal infusions that are great for your health and tastes great too!
For example one of my favorite flavors, Chai tea, offers amazing nutritional and health benefits; Chai has been been known to preserve health and increase peace of mind. What’s even better is that the more we learn about Chai, the more benefits we find. In addition to improving digestion, Chai also enhances the immune system, fights inflammation and has antioxidant properties.
Rooibos tea is a caffeine free option that is ideal for sleepless nights or relaxing days off. Containing powerful antioxidants and high mineral content, rooibos can help you mentally wind down after a day of hard work. Another benefit to drinking the tea is the improvement of your circulation.
Turmeric, a part of the ginger family, is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Thanks to its most active attribute, Curcumen, we enjoy the bold yellow color as seen in our Inner Glow lollipops.
Rose, one of my favorites (and not just because of its name), contains many essential vitamins like C, D, K and E, as well as organic acids like citric and malic acids. Rose helps to build a strong immune system, strengthens the digestive system and can also act as an informal method for detox. Great for treating symptoms for the common cold and the flu, rose is an essential ingredient for Dosh Pops.
Chicory, another caffeine-free option, is surprisingly high in protein and rich in vitamins and nutrients. Studies have even shown that chicory tea can help eliminate stomach phlegm and can help alleviate symptoms tied to having an upset stomach. Another fun tip about chicory being that it can act as an appetite stimulant between meals!
Lastly, hibiscus has many health benefits. The most popular of these being hibiscus tea’s high blood pressure reducing and cholesterol fighting power.
So you see, how could I, or anyone, resist the clear benefits of consuming nature’s own herbal gift to us! Tea has become not only an escape to a cup full of relaxation, but it has also become a tool for achieving the perfect balance for your own Dosha.
