Antioxidants & the Spirit of Life!

 

Like traditional teas, herbal infusions are very often rich in antioxidants, and this month's Wellness Tea of the Month is no exception! What makes Spirit of Life so special is the type of antioxidants it contains, glutathione and aspalathin.

Aspalathin, which is found only in rooibos tea, has anti-diabetic properties, meaning it helps people with diabetes reduce their risk of vascular inflammation and atherosclerosis.

Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, is one of the most protective molecules in the human body and has been shown to protect against inflammation, toxins, free radicals and pathogens. Think of it as your body’s own natural detoxifier. Without adequate levels of glutathione, you are at increased risk of some of the most serious health conditions, including stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, and heart disease. When levels are adequate or high, you’ll not only have protection from the conditions above, but you’ll have amazing energy, glowing skin, healthy detoxification, and stronger heart and brain function.

Talk about the Spirit of LifeAlmost all of the ingredients, including ginger, cinnamon, lemongrass and cardamom, have anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, as well as diuretic and detoxifying effects! It seems that whatever ails you or has you dragging a bit, this tisane can help! It really covers so many bases and is the epitome of a wellness tea!

We love Spirit of Life paired with our Orange Blossom Honey for a bigger antioxidant boost! Read more about the "Surprisingly Sweet Side Effect of Raw Honey" on your health here!
