Immune Boosting Teas for Cold Season
Sniff, snuffle, cough; time to reach for a warm and soothing immune boosting tea this cold season! Our immune system is the gateway to good health and keeping it vital means fewer down days and sickness. Immune Boosting teas are rich in nutrients that provide anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
Tea is hydrating and holds nutrients we need for healthy immune systems. It is also a great source of antioxidants that boost the immune system and help reduce inflammation.
All tea, black, oolong, green and white, comes from the Camellia sinensis plant and contains similar nutrients and caffeine. It’s all in how it’s processed that sets each tea apart and gives them their distinctive flavors. The theanine found in tea is also an amino acid that promotes overall wellness.
Other herbals like rooibos are also full of vitamins and antioxidants. Tulsi is popular for its immune boosting benefits, and blends with hibiscus and rosehips are packed with vitamin C.
And for the perfect sore throat soother, try our Lemon Ginger Turmeric tea recipe!
