Hi, I'm Kolawole, a professional chef and food writer from Vancouver, Canada. My passion is providing honest insight into nature’s ability to heal, through nourishing the mind and body.
Would you like to join me for a delicious cup of alkaline tea?
Alkaline Tea Benefits
For optimal health and wellness, it is important to consume the best teas for immune system strength. The immune system, like a soldier, is responsible for upholding the body.
However, for an efficient immune system and optimal oxygenation of the blood, we need to keep it alkaline. Nature is alkaline, however, man-made processed foods are acidic and they inhibit the body from functioning properly.
Herbal alkaline teas provide a rapid and effective way to keep you in the ideal state of alkaline wellbeing.
Alkaline Tea for Hydration and Health
After water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world. It is one of nature's gifts and an amazing source of hydration and nutrition. However, not all teas are made equal.
Herbal alkaline teas provide immune-boosting polyphenols and naturally healing antioxidants that nourish you on all levels. Herbal alkaline teas offer medicinal effects with little or no negative side effects.
Meanwhile, black, green, and white tea, which comes from the Camellia sinensis plant (simply referred to as the Tea plant), is packed with antioxidants but contains caffeine and tannins.
The acidity of tea, and food in general, is complicated. Putting it simply, it’s not the acidity of the substance itself that’s important, it’s how the body processes it. Substances that artificially energize the body, like caffeine, put the body under stress, and the result is excess acidity. Tannins can also result in more acid being produced (this is why very strong tea makes your stomach feel ‘tight’ and ‘queasy’ or nauseous).
The Benefits of Herbal Alkaline Teas
Tea, by definition, is a hot drink made by infusing dried and crushed leaves or roots of tea plants in boiling water. You can also let it cool, or drink it with ice for a refreshing alkaline beverage. Over 80% of households in the world are said to have at least one variant of tea in their homes.
We have been drinking tea since the Stone Age. In fact, the use of African roots in herbal teas is a holistic form of health care that has been in existence long before modern medicine and is still widely used. Alkaline teas correct the body’s acid-base balance among other awesome benefits. Some of this goodness includes:
- Hydration – Teas are a great hydrating agent because their base is water.
- Antioxidants – Herbal teas are packed with antioxidants that boost the immune system and protect cells from damage.
- Calming – From improving circulation to relieving pain and inflammation, teas have a myriad of benefits derived from the plant’s natural biochemistry. Taking a moment to slowly sip a cup of tea is also calming in itself. Never rush a cup of tea. Enjoy the moment of solace that it provides.
- Soothing – some teas, like ginger, help regulate blood pressure, ease indigestion, and even relieve headaches. Typically, alkaline teas ease discomfort and support the immune system.
- Healing – Many herbal teas are rich in flavonoids. These compounds reduce inflammation and regulate the body in ways science is starting to explain. Specific teas have been shown to support detoxification and contribute to glowing, clear, and flawless skin.
- Strength – Some alkaline teas even improve bone density and muscle strength by helping to regulate metabolic hormones. They can even boost mental strength so you can think more clearly.
Antioxidants are a group of naturally occurring compounds that combat ‘free radicals’; a product of the oxidation process. Oxygen is an amazing fuel but it can also do damage to the body (like a hot spark being thrown out of a fire).
The free radicals are unstable and seek stability by attaching themselves to a stable molecule. Unfortunately, the more free radicals there are in the body, the more harm is done.
Antioxidants come to the rescue by neutralizing the free radicals in the body. Besides tea, fresh fruits and vegetables are the next best sources of antioxidants (natural compounds that prevent cell damage and aid weight loss.)
