Red Clover

Some of the unique properties of red clover include its ability to reduce inflammation throughout the body, particularly in the cardiovascular system. Studies have linked the use of its tea to a significant reduction in the tension of arteries and blood vessels, therefore reducing blood pressure. This can help to prevent coronary heart disease and a variety of other cardiovascular conditions. High Vitamin C content. If you consume the leaves in the form of tea, then you can get a healthy dose of antioxidants. Antioxidants can neutralize free radicals, which cause degenerative diseases and cell mutation. The overall immune boost of red clover includes preventing infections, both viral and bacterial. The hormonal impacts of red clover are significant, particularly for women. The isoflavones found in red clover mimic estrogen, so for those women who may struggle to maintain estrogen levels, red clover can help to balance their hormonal shifts and prevent mood swings, as well as reduce breast pain. This applies to women undergoing PMS as well as menopause, as both of these times can cause dangerous or unpredictable fluctuations in hormone levels. Red clover is not only useful for women, however, and in terms of cancer prevention, it is extremely important for men. Prostate cancer is one of the most dangerous forms of cancer for men, and some of the compounds found in it can block certain enzymes that could cause prostate growth. Although some forms of prostate enlargement are benign, a reduction in prostate size is always a good thing for long-term male health. If you struggle to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, you significantly increase your chances of heart attacks and strokes as a result of atherosclerosi. Therefore, anything that can lower cholesterol levels is valuable, and research has shown that LDL cholesterol levels can be reduced by adding red clover. Furthermore, coumarins found in red clover have been shown to keep blood flowing smoothly and stimulating healthy circulation, further preventing high blood pressure and cardiovascular distress. If you want to find a quick way to detoxify your body and clear your system of excess toxins and salts, nothing works better than a diuretic. Red clover has been connected to increased urination, thereby helping release excess water, toxins, and even fat from the body.

Matcha

Among antioxidants, catechins are the most potent and beneficial. One specific catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) makes up 60% of the catechins in Matcha Green Tea. Out of all the antioxidants, EGCg is the most widely recognized for its cancer fighting properties. One of the most amazing benefits of Matcha Green Tea is that just one bowl provides over 5 times as many antioxidants as any other food – the highest rated by the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) method. Scientists have found that Matcha Green Tea contains over 100 times more EGCg than any other tea on the market. For over a millennium, Matcha Green Tea has been used by Chinese Daoists and Japanese Zen Buddhist monks as a means to relax and meditate while remaining alert. Now we know that this higher state of consciousness is due to the amino acid L-Theanine contained in the leaves used to make Matcha. L-Theanine promotes the production of alpha waves in the brain which induces relaxation without the inherent drowsiness caused by other “downers.” Another side-effect of L-Theanine is the production of dopamine and serotonin. These two chemicals serve to enhance mood, improve memory, and promote better concentration. Samurai, the noble warriors of medieval and early-modern Japan, drank Matcha Green Tea before going into battle due to the tea’s energizing properties. While all green tea naturally contains caffeine, the energy boost received from Matcha is largely due to its unique combination of other nutrients. The increased endurance from a bowl of Matcha Green Tea can last up to 6 hours and because of the effects of L-Theanine, Matcha drinkers experience none of the usual side-effects of stimulants such as nervousness and hypertension. It’s good, clean energy. Drinking Matcha Green Tea has also been shown to increase metabolism and help the body burn fat about four times faster than average. Again, unlike many diet aides currently on the market, Matcha causes no negative side-effects such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure. Matcha is also a powerful detoxifier capable of naturally removing heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body. The catechins in Matcha Green Tea have been shown to have antibiotic properties which promote overall health. Additionally, just one bowl of Matcha Green Tea provides substantial quantities of Potassium, Vitamins A & C, Iron, Protein, and Calcium. Further studies have even suggested that the nutrients in Matcha may have the ability to inhibit the attacks of HIV on human T-cells. Researchers aren’t entirely certain how Matcha Green Tea has such a positive effect on cholesterol, however studies of different populations have show that people who drink Match Green Tea on a regular basis have lower levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol while at the same time displaying higher levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. Men who drink Matcha Green Tea are about 11% less likely to develop heart disease than those who don’t drink Matcha.

Lemongrass

As the name suggests, lemongrass has the fragrance of lemon but it is milder and sweeter in taste. It is often used in Thai and may other Asian cuisines for its potent flavour. Interestingly, lemongrass has been used in India for many years for medicinal purposes and is also an Ayurvedic favorite. Lemongrass has a cooling energy which helps to soothe your stomach and keeps your digestive functions in check. It contains a component called citral that helps to digest food. Therefore, it is mostly served after dinner. It has been used as an ancient remedy for all stomach problems in Chinese medicine like bloating, constipation or indigestion. Lemongrass tea is your detox tea. It is packed with antioxidants that help in detoxing and cleansing you from within. It helps in removal of toxins from the body by relieving fluid retention. Lemongrass is nature’s formula for taming high blood pressure. It is rich in potassium which increases the production of urine in our body, which in turn stimulates blood circulation and lowers blood pressure. By increasing blood circulation, it also helps in purifying the liver. Lemongrass is also known to limit cholesterol absorption from the intestines, thus promoting overall heart health. Lemongrass tea is a great option for your weight loss diet plan as it helps in boosting your metabolism which makes digestion quicker and helps in burning more calories . A report published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2013 showed that polyphenols found in natural plant compounds and the caffeine content in tea increases the use of energy and enhances the oxidation of fatty acids in the body. Lemongrass is a great source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C which are essential nutrients for beautiful skin and hair. By improving the blood circulation, it clears up your skin, treats oily textures and also works on treating eruptions like acne, pimples and eczema. Lemongrass has antibacterial and antifungal properties that help you cope with cold, cough and flu. Plus, it is loaded with Vitamin C that strengthens your immunity. Lemongrass tea is considered excellent for women's health. It provides relief from hot flashes and helps in reducing menstrual pain due to its soothing effect.

Guava leaf

Guava leaves are herbal remedy for diarrhea and dysentery. Aids in Digestion: Guava leaf tea aids in digestion by stimulating digestive enzyme production. The powerful antibacterial agents kill bacteria in the lining of the gut and stop proliferation of toxic enzymes by bacteria. Maroon healers used it for centuries to cure the digestive illness known as “bad belly.” It’s also used to relieve menstrual discomfort and often taken with fevergrass (lemongrass) to clear the system of parasites.


Spearmint 

There are a number of important compounds and antioxidants that can be derived from spearmint tea, notably limonene and mint L-Carvone, along with various other flavonoids, and limited amounts of menthol (significantly less than in peppermint). These compounds can boost overall health in a surprising number of ways, which is why spearmint tea is often considered a sweeter alternative to peppermint tea. One of the most impressive findings of spearmint essential oil was its powerful antibacterial capacity, meaning that it can help to stave off infections in many topical applications. That same antibacterial potential is present in spearmint tea as well, which is why many people turn to the sweet, energizing tea for an immune system boost. The anti-inflammatory effects of spearmint tea can help your stomach settle down when you’re experiencing any sort of stomach upset or nausea. By calming those inflamed tissues and optimizing your digestion, you can also improve nutrient uptake and eliminate cramping, bloating, constipation, and other unpleasant gastrointestinal conditions. Another interesting effect of spearmint tea is that it can impact the hormonal balance within our body. There are countless different hormonal interactions that define our appearance, behavior, mood, and daily energy cycles, and spearmint tea has been shown to regulate and normalize those chemicals to healthy levels. A specific hormonal issue that spearmint tea handles is hirsutism, defined as the growth of unwanted hair on certain women’s bodies, namely due to an unusually high level of androgens. By reducing this ‘male’ hormone and regulating the rest of the body’s hormones, spearmint tea, in a controlled study, was able to measurably reduce the symptoms of hirsutism in a two-week study. The limonene found in this tea is known to counter the negative effects of free radicals and increase neurotransmitter activity, to the point of improving memory, concentration, and focus. A single glass of spearmint tea can help you clear your mind and tackle the cognitive tasks at hand. Free radicals are the primary cause of the cellular breakdown and the development of chronic diseases within the body. For example, cancer is largely caused by free radicals stimulating cellular mutations. The antioxidants found in spearmint tea, however, can eliminate these free radicals and keep the body healthy, without putting undue strain on the immune system. The anti-inflammatory nature of spearmint tea is well-known, and it is commonly used to eliminate headaches and other pains throughout the body, particularly in the joints. This is also an application of spearmint essential oil. The anti-inflammatory compounds in this powerful plant can also help soothe sore throats and soothe indigestion by relaxing the spasming muscles of the gut.

Stinging Nettle

The tea can be quite strong, and has a rapid effect on the body, primarily due to the flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins, and minerals found in the plant. It is particularly rich in calcium and magnesium, in far greater concentrations than other leafy green vegetables often praised for their mineral content. These nutrients can be directly accessed through nettle tea, which is why it is so highly sought after around the world. The antioxidants alone are enough to make it a healthy food. Nettle tea has traditionally been used for skin care in many parts of the world. The analgesic and anti-inflammatory abilities of nettle tea can help relieve symptoms of acne, eczema, irritation and other blemishes that harm your skin. The antioxidants contained in the tea can also help to speed up healing and prevent scarring from issues on the skin. You can drink the tea to get these effects or allow the tea to cool, then topically apply it to the skin with a cloth and ensure it stays on for maximum absorption. The most promising and well-researched benefit of nettle tea has to do with its effect on the kidneys. As a powerful diuretic, nettle tea can help to stimulate healthy, consistent urination. It can also help to prevent the development of kidney stones. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory nature of nettle tea makes it great for handling digestive issues, such as IBS, constipation, diarrhea, and general stomach upset caused by bacterial imbalances in the gut. Nettle tea can help to kill intestinal worms and parasites as well, bringing your gastrointestinal health back on track and promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria. The flavonoids and carotenoids found in nettle tea, along with the high concentration of vitamin C, all make this beverage an effective immune system booster. Antioxidants are powerful substances that can seek out and neutralize free radicals, the dangerous byproducts of cellular metabolism that can cause cellular mutation and chronic illness. By freeing up your immune system from fighting that oxidative stress, nettle tea can work as your first line of immune defense. There is a huge amount of minerals found in nettle tea which include calcium, magnesium, and iron. Not only do they make this variety of tea excellent for people suffering from anemia, but also help to prevent the gradual breakdown of bone mineral density as we age. It is essential to get the minerals we need as we get older to fight the onset of osteoporosis. The antioxidants and minerals found in this tea are excellent ways to keep your body feeling young. There are natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory compounds in nettles that have made them popular throughout history. Whether using this tea to soothe the pain of a pulled muscle, a sore back, a headache, or any bump or bruise, you can often get relief before you finish your cup. External application of nettle tea can be just as effective, and more direct, but these effects are also felt when the tea is drunk. Some researchers have found that there is a connection between lower blood pressure and a regular consumption of nettle tea. The anti-inflammatory components, as well as the potassium found in nettles, can help to reduce the tension in arteries and blood vessels, promoting healthier circulation and oxygenating the body properly. This can lower your chances of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular complications.

Yarrow

Wound healer, Yarrow is one of the most useful wound herbs we have as it staunches bleeding and is antimicrobial and pain relieving too. Native Americans used yarrow for wounds, infections and bleeding. Chinese medicine gives it praise for the ability to affect the kidney, spleen, liver and energy channels throughout the body.

Oatstraw

Traditionally, a tea – or infusion – made of oatstraw has been used to treat a variety of ailments, from broken bones to sexual dysfunction. High in calcium and other minerals, an infusion of oatstraw is an herbal remedy that can nourish the body at the deepest level. Oatstraw is high in calcium – a cup of oatstraw infusion contains 300 milligrams of calcium along with other minerals, protein and the spectrum of B vitamins, excepting vitamin B-12. Oatstraw is also high in silica, a mineral that is largely responsible for healthy skin, hair, nails and bones.

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng, has a wide range of health benefits, which include its ability to fight against cancer and diabetes, reduce inflammation, and prevent arthritis, asthma, hypertension, stress, and rheumatism. Furthermore, it boosts energy and the supply of antioxidants and regulates the immune system. It also has antibacterial and anticonvulsant properties. Ashwagandha, with its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, is good for cardiovascular health problems. It strengthens the heart muscles and can also control cholesterol. A study at the University of Arizona indicated that it possesses hypolipidemic properties that help in bringing down blood cholesterol levels. Ashwagandha helps in reducing anxiety and depression. In India, Ashwagandha has been traditionally used in Ayurveda to improve both physical and mental health. Ashwagandha has long been used as a remedy for diabetes in Ayurvedic medicine. Research on the use of Ashwagandha in the treatment of diabetes indicated positive results. Experiments showed that blood sugar levels during fasting and post-lunch period decreased significantly when Ashwagandha was consumed for a period of four weeks. According to Ayurvedic medical texts, Ashwagandha is effective in controlling bacterial infections in humans. A study conducted at the Centre for Biotechnology at the University of Allahabad in India showed that Ashwagandha possesses antibacterial properties. It also concluded that Ashwagandha was effective in urinogenital, gastrointestinal, and respiratory tract infections when consumed orally. Research studies have shown that the consumption of Ashwagandha led to significant modulation of immune system reactivity and prevented myelosuppression in mice induced by immunosuppressive drugs. It was also observed that Ashwagandha increased the red blood cell, white blood cell, and platelets count. Hematopoiesis is the process of producing new blood. According to research, Ashwagandha possesses hemopoietic properties. The study showed that red blood cell and white blood cell counts increased significantly in rats which were administered with Ashwagandha. This could mean a positive effect on human red blood cells as well, thereby helping to prevent conditions like anemia. Ashwagandha has been found to be effective in dealing with a variety of rheumatologic problems. The herb is known to act as a cyclooxygenase inhibitor that decreases inflammation and pain. A research conducted at the Los Angeles College of Chiropractors suggests that Ashwagandha has anti-inflammatory properties that come from the alkaloids, saponins, and steroidal lactones found within it.

Allspice

One of the most celebrated aspects of allspice is its ability to lower inflammation and alleviate pain in parts of the body. The active ingredients in the spice have chemical compounds that eliminate inflammation, making it an ideal spice to give you some relief from arthritis, gout, muscle aches, or even hemorrhoids. It also has certain analgesic components that allow for pain reduction in the case of injury or surgical recovery. The calming, rubefacient effects of allspice’s organic components make it perfect for soothing the stomach and also facilitating healthy digestion. The eugenol found in allspice can eliminate digestive issues such as diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and constipation, while also stimulating regularity, which reduces bloating and excess flatulence. The anti-inflammatory aspect of allspice further eases cramps, which can ease the entire process of digestion. Research has shown certain antibacterial and antifungal effects of allspice, particularly in terms of stomach bacteria (E. coli and Listeria monocytogenes). In addition to helping the gastrointestinal system function smoothly, it also protects it from outside attack through a natural immune response. Furthermore, when allspice is added to certain foods, it can neutralize the bacteria at that level, before it ever enters your body to begin doing damage. The presence of eugenol, quercetin, tannins, and other chemical compounds makes allspice a very potent antioxidant, as many of those substances are perfect for neutralizing free radicals and eliminating them from the body. Free radicals are the harmful byproducts of cellular metabolism that can cause healthy cells to mutate, often leading to serious diseases – even cancer. The high level of vitamin C and vitamin A present in allspice also contribute to this antioxidant activity. The antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiseptic aspects of allspice can help to boost your dental health; although gargling with this spice wouldn’t be particularly pleasant, it has been connected to healthier dental and gum health by protecting against bacterial pathogens. With significant levels of copper and iron, allspice is ideal for boosting circulation, as these are essential components of red blood cells. Furthermore, the rubefacient aspect of the spice is a stimulant and warms the body. Combined with increased blood flow, this can result in additional energy and the proper oxygenation of extremities in the body. Iron also functions in the creation of certain enzymes that are crucial for overall metabolism. The potassium found in allspice has a positive effect on heart health, as it is a vasodilator and releases much of the tension on the cardiovascular system. This causes an increase in blood flow through the relaxed blood vessels and reduces the strain on the arteries and heart, thereby lowering the chances of developing atherosclerosis, and subsequently, strokes and heart attacks.

Nutmeg

Relief from Pain. Consumption of nutmeg tea or the addition of nutmeg as a spice to your dishes can reduce the sensation of pain from wounds, injuries, and inflammations, be it injury-related or chronic in nature like in the case of arthritis.

Digestive Health. The fibers present in nutmeg, which is well-retained after grinding, stimulate peristaltic movement in the intestines, leading to improvements in digestive function, and reduce any likeliness of constipation. Furthermore, nutmeg promotes the release of gastric juices that are vital for better digestion. Nutmeg tea would hence be a well worthy substitute if taken for this purpose.

Brain Health. Studies have shown that myristicin and macelignan, two components present in nutmeg’s essential oil, slow down the degradation of the brain’s neural pathways and cognitive function, which are symptoms common to people affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Detoxification. The consumption of nutmeg tea in conjunction with a detoxification regimen may be worth considering. Nutmeg can help eliminate the body’s toxins which generally accumulate in the liver and kidneys

Oral Health. The active antibacterial components found in nutmeg kills the bacteria responsible for halitosis or bad breath as it is more commonly known. Having nutmeg tea regularly could also boost tooth and gum immunity.

The cure for Insomnia. Small amounts of nutmeg in a warm mug of milk, or perhaps a serving of nutmeg tea supplies the body with high levels of magnesium which reduces nerve tension and stimulate the release of serotonin. This serotonin is converted to melatonin in the brain which then induces relaxation and better sleep.

Fights Cancer Cells. Clinical studies show that a certain compound present in nutmeg and its essential oils can induce cell death, particularly in leukemia cells and potentially other cancerous cells in general.

Skin Health. Topical application of nutmeg, in the form of a paste, has long been used to reduce skin irritation, inflammation, and lighten the appearance of scars.

Better Blood Circulation. The presence of the mineral potassium in nutmeg effectively relaxes the blood vessels, resulting in reduced blood pressure and thus less strain on the heart. Nutmeg tea, as part of your diet, may certainly lead to better cardiovascular health. Also, the iron content of nutmeg can boost red blood cell count to slim down your chances of acquiring anemia or any other symptoms related to a deficiency of this mineral.

Bone Growth. Calcium, another mineral present in nutmeg boosts the growth and repair of bones. Nutmeg tea, in this regard, may well be a good prevention against the effects of osteoporosis.

Turmeric

Turmeric tea’s strong anti-inflammatory properties can help ease inflammation and swelling in people with arthritis. This reduces painful symptoms. One study found that an active compound in turmeric, called curcumin, was effective in reducing pain in patients with osteoarthritis. Turmeric can reduce the synaptic marker loss and the accumulation of amyloids linked to Alzheimer’s development. The National Cancer Institute has recognized curcumin as an effective anticarcinogen, or substance that helps prevent cancer. Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic condition that causes ulcers in the lower end of the gastrointestinal tract. Turmeric could help maintain remission from symptoms. The medicinal properties in turmeric may be able to boost the immune system, even in people with immune disorders. One study theorized that turmeric can moderate the immune system. Lowering LDL (or “bad”) cholesterol can help reduce your risk of developing some serious conditions, including heart disease and stroke. There is evidence that turmeric is effective at doing just that.
