A herbal tea is a blend of different flowers, fruits, leaves or roots from an edible non-tea plant rather than a “true” tea. Due to this, herbal teas are infusions that can be made from almost any plant, with some of the most common ingredients being chamomile, ginger, and peppermint.
Just like true teas, there are many health benefits of drinking herbal teas, making them an ideal part of your healthy living routine. The antioxidants in herbal tea can prevent damage from free radicals and can help with digestion. Herbal teas can also contain ingredients and properties which help to reduce inflammation, help boost your immune system, and help to reduce stress.
Herbal teas are naturally caffeine free. Decaffeinated teas, on the other hand, have had their caffeine content removed. A very small number of herbs do contain caffeine (e.g. yerba mate, guayusa and yaupon) but most common herbs do not.
Herbal teas can be a very good source of water and a great way to stay hydrated. Alongside hydration, herbal teas have other benefits, such as containing antioxidants which can help you to stay healthy. With herbal teas being naturally caffeine free, they also don’t result in the same dehydrating effects that caffeinated drinks can.
The main benefit of herbal detox teas is that they contain nutrients to help with weight loss through increasing your metabolism. Detox teas also have other benefits which can aid weight management, such as having stress reduction properties and antioxidants. Of course, the weight loss benefits of herbal teas work best alongside a healthy diet and daily exercise plan.
Drinking herbal tea can play a role in your bedtime routine. Many natural herbal teas contain ingredients that have been used for relaxation and to promote sleep for many centuries. Due to this, blends made from these herbal ingredients can help you to fall asleep more easily and aid the quality of your sleep.
Most herbal detox teas are safe to consume when pregnant. In fact, they can often be a good replacement for caffeinated teas or coffees. However, it is always best to check the packaging of any organic everyday detox tea you purchase.
