Tea and Tisanes
These herbal botanical beverages can benefit you in the following ways:
- Ward off cell damage as these contain unique antioxidants called flavonoids, ECGC polyphenols
- Contain vitamins and minerals that help lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels
- Slow the aging process, reduce stress, and improve sleep
- Strong sources of amino acid L-theanine that promotes relaxation
- Boost concentration and alertness
- Promote weight loss and induce fat oxidation and thermogenesis
To brew, add 1 teaspoon of tea/tisane to hot water and steep for 5-10 minutes. The longer you steep, the stronger the brew but this may result in a more bitter taste. You can also enjoy this chilled; just let it cool after brewing.
This is derived from the leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant, a shrub that thrives in Florida. All other types of tea are harvested from this plant. The only difference is on how the leaves are dried. Locations where they are grown and harvested also play a role in their quality and taste.
This is a type of tea that comes from anything but Camellia sinensis. Many assortments are created from leaves, flowers, bark, roots, fruit, seeds, spices, and stems.
Taking herbal remedies and supplements in liquid form is a convenient and easy way to let your body get the nutrients it needs. In tincture form, herbs are absorbed more quickly into your body’s circulation. When taken regularly in addition to a healthy diet, liquid herbal extract dietary supplements can promote optimum health and well-being.
Tinctures are typically alcoholic extracts, but can also be made with vinegar, glycerin, or honey. Selected herbs are soaked in alcohol (usually organic grain alcohol or vodka) from 6 to 8 weeks at a ratio ranging from 1:1 to 1:10 depending on the recommended dosage and the desired strength.
After this, the tinctures are pressed and the residue is discarded. The remaining liquid, which has absorbed the beneficial constituents, becomes the tincture that is used for medicinal purposes. Most tinctures are administered at a dose between 15 to 60 drops several times per day. In most cases, less than 2-3 teaspoons of alcohol are consumed on a daily basis when using tinctures.
