A Happy & Healthy New Year
The advent of a New Year inevitably brings a flood of articles, tips, and advice concerned with how we can all look to improve our health and wellbeing in simple ways. You won’t be surprised to know that the daily use of herbal teas and herbal infusions always appear high on these lists, with ginger being spoken about as one of the most favoured options.
The Benefits of Ginger Tea
At Birchall, we always think it’s useful to fully understand what the benefits of different herbal infusions are and how they work their particular magic on the body. It helps us assess their use and can sometimes influence decisions on how to better implement them into the products that we offer.
Ginger has a long and proud tradition for healthy living, with its use in Eastern medicine documented for well over 5000 years as an overall tonic and wellness boost. However, in modern times there is also increasing research information available to support exactly how ginger tea can aid our health in three distinct ways.
- Ginger Tea and Digestion
Ginger tea as a digestive aid is perhaps what it’s best known for. Its calming effect for stomach ailments has long been detailed and now growing evidence suggests that it may also have preventative properties for colon and pancreatic cancers. The ability for ginger tea to combat nausea offers benefits for a versatile range of applications too. It can help with morning sickness in pregnancy and may provide a way to alleviate some of the sickness symptoms associated with chemotherapy.
- Ginger Tea and Pain Relief
Ginger contains several key nutrients that offer anti-inflammatory benefits to us all. This may be one of the main reasons that ginger tea has long been in use as a pain relief product. Particularly for headaches and migraines, it can be a great source of both prevention and relief for regular sufferers through the provision of a natural and easy-to-access complement to medication.
- Ginger Tea and Weight Loss
It’s always sensible to stay wary of anything that promises quick and easy routes to weight loss. However, there are credible and positive reviews of ongoing research into the anti-obesity and weight lowering effects of ginger. With strong benefits for appetite control and the breakdown of fats through lipolysis, there is now a powerful argument that can be made for ginger tea to be part of a daily balanced diet. This is further demonstrated through evidence from a 2017 study that shows ginger decreases hypertension to effectively lower blood pressure.
The Benefits of Bold Flavour
To truly benefit from the wonderful health and wellness properties that herbal infused teas provide means ensuring that we want to return to them time and time again. We should want to make them part of our daily routine, and not be constrained to viewing them through the lens of how they can help us periodically.
As with most important things in our lives, this all comes down to a matter of taste.
Birchall Ginger & Lemongrass Tea
Our caffeine free Lemongrass & Ginger tea is a vibrant infusion that brings a lively and spicy warmth to be enjoyed frequently and repeatedly. The pairing of striking ginger notes with a calming and gentle lemongrass creates a taste for this beautiful tea that soothes and revives in equal measure.
It represents the perfect blend of flavour and health benefits that you can reach for to provide a reassuring boost and lift your mood at any time. With the hot zest and woody power that the ginger contributes coolly tempered by the bright floral and subtle minty citrus of lemongrass, it delivers an enticing aroma good enough to fill any cup at any hour. The properties of lemongrass, with its own unique antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, also act as the perfect health bolstering complement to ginger in this wonderfully spirit-raising infusion.
Take Your Time
Some things should never be rushed. The brewing time we suggest for all of our teas is there to ensure you are getting the best possible taste from it.
We like to think that there is no real reason why you shouldn’t apply this idea to your life in the same way. Enjoying our Ginger and Lemongrass tea may encourage you to take a little time out too, losing yourself in the time-honoured ritual of tea making.
A lot of the hard work has been done for you through the perfect blend of ingredients that come together in every cup. All you need to do is find the right space and take a moment to enjoy it.
Let it become a part of your own perfect blend of a day.
