Only fools consume their body weight in berries, a wise man knows the shortcut to antioxidants is found in Antioxidant Tea.
Traditionally my ingredients have been used to assist with:
Fu Lin (china root), Black Tea, Yin Xing (Ginkgo biloba), Ren Shen Hua (ginseng root), Gou Qi (goji), Du Zhong (eucommia bark), Ling Zhi (reiishi mushroom), He Shou Wu (knotweed), Yi Yi (adlay), Gui Pi (cinnamon), Mei Gui (Rose).
According to Dr Nat TCM, Antioxidants are wonderful little molecules bursting with all the good stuff. Essentially they help you turn back the clock and fight the signs of ageing and damage. As the name suggests, Antioxidant tea is a powerful force that reverses the effects your environment has had on your bodies (oxidation). Visualise an old rusty piece of iron; this is oxidation at its finest. Now, imagine the effect your environment has had on your body thanks to your diet, lifestyle, pollutants, toxins, stress. All of these factors have a huge impact on you – leading to damage just like the rusty iron. They all contribute to placing a load on you that goes right down to how your cells interact. It's a good thing we understand too well the effects of stress and have collaborated a special mix of herbs known as Antioxidant Tea to help you counteract the effects of stress and ageing.
TCM Dr. Nat Kringoudis, further explains how the Antioxidant Tea ingredients work within the body:
Straight up, Ginko Biloba is a very well known ‘brain' herb. Du Zhong is another herb included in this formula for its ability to not only strengthen your body on the whole but to also help calm your body. It treats dizziness and headache and promotes circulation. These actions make it quite an invigorating ingredient – helping to pep up the mind and increase wakefulness. Ginseng is a name we have all grown to love.
Ginseng is widely sought after for its therapeutic properties of vitalisation and invigoration. It powerfully supports the body, it helps to calm the mind, it supports digestion meaning you can better assimilate the nutrients from your food to better supply your body with what it needs to thrive. After all, you can eat all the freshest, most superior quality produce in the world but if you can't digest it, it is useless! Ginseng is, of course, a powerful antioxidant too – it helps to clean up any damage day to day stress will undoubtedly cause – think of it like your very own superhero in a tea bag!
Antioxidant Tea is safe for almost everybody.
It is safe to consume Antioxidant Tea whilst pregnant and breastfeeding, however we don't always recommend this, purely because we believe in leaving health in the hands of nature at this special point in time.
For the young or elderly or those recovering from severe illness, whilst it isn't contraindicated, it's important to consult your healthcare professional before cleansing. If you're under the age of 15 we recommend seeking parental permission.
Antioxidant Tea is designed to be consumed consecutively over 30 days (2 x a day), though, can also be consumed as needed and will not interfere with our tea programs in the Your Tea range. Brew for 5-7 minutes at a time. Drink 30 minutes before or after meals.
We always recommend listening to how your body feels whilst on the tea.
Hot tip: Feel free to add a squeeze of lemon or dash of honey.
