For tummy trouble
Known for its soothing qualities, chamomile is calming for an upset tummy. It increases levels of glycine, an amino acid, and acts as an antispasmodic.
Improves skin condition
Rooibos contains alpha hydroxy acid which is good for your complexion. It also absorbs sebum (oil) and can be used to help irritations such as itchy skin, eczema, sunburns and acne.
Supports the respiratory system
Liquorice contains glycosides, which are acids that can reduce inflammation. Irritating coughs, asthma and chest infections can benefit from the soothing and calming properties.
Good for the blood
Studies have shown the flavonoids found in this brightly coloured tisane contain antioxidants known to reduce the dangerous build up of fatty deposits in the arteries.
Aids weight loss
This tea is thought to burn calories through a process called lipoylsis. This enables the body to use fat as its primary fuel source, rather than the sugar found in starchy carbohydrates.
