Immune boosting tea
Flu season seems to be in full swing still in the Midwest and we have another possible pandemic looming over our country. So let’s talk about ways to boost our immune system with tea!
Tea has a very high content of antioxidants. Antioxidants act as a defense mechanism for your body against disease causing cells. Here are a few of our favorite immune boosting teas highlighting the main ingredients that make them so powerful.
Turmeric is available in a range of forms, but one of the best ways to enjoy it is as a warming tea. Our Terrific Turmeric is combined with ginger and black pepper. Black pepper improves the rate of absorption into the body by up to 2000%. More interesting is that turmeric is also able to increase the population of healthy bacteria in the stomach.
Ginger is historically one of the most common substances used to help with colds and flu. Ginger can help digestion, improve your circulation, reduce your nausea and help your body fight the flu, while turmeric is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant powerhouse. When paired together, these two immune boosting power houses come to your aid in a big way!

It’s a natural tea that, like ginger, can help calm or soothe nausea or indigestion.

Unlike steeped tea, matcha is made by grinding the entire tea leaf into a powder. Because you consume the whole leaf, it has approximately 10x more nutrients than regular green tea. Matcha powdered green tea has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea.
