With the fact that viruses that cause colds and serious illnesses spread more easily in lower temperatures, you must protect your immune system. Strong immunity will help fight infectious bacteria, keeping cold, congestion, coughing, and flu at bay. Fortunately, purple tea is well-known for its incredible anti-inflammatory properties like flavonoids (an antioxidant) and can help in boosting our immunity system and reducing symptoms of flu and sicknesses like chest congestion, fever, and sore throat. Especially when you add honey, peppermint, lemon, or ginger to your cup.
Not only does honey and citrus elevate the flavor of your purple tea, it helps support the wellness benefits for your mind and body.
Honey and lemon help aid the digestive tract, support digestion and remove any harmful bacteria from the stomach. This is incredibly important to your immune system, because gut health is what fuels and maintains your body, especially your immune system. The high levels of acidity found in lemons, and the coating nourishment of honey helps speed up the digestive process. Lemons are also a great source of vitamin C and is a natural diuretic. Hot purple with lemon and honey will aid in digestion, cleanse the liver and flush out toxins and impurities from your body.
A delicious hot or iced latte
The fewer hours of sunlight that accompany the winter season, affect your sleep cycle and make us feel lazy and tired known as "winter tiredness." Because we receive fewer hours of sunshine, our bodies produce more of the sleep hormone melatonin making you feel sleepy and lethargic more frequently. This is why you may find yourself ingesting more caffeinated beverages. Particularly coffee. Enjoying a cup of coffee is fine, however, you do want to be mindful of the amount of caffeine you intake each day. Too much caffeine can have harmful effects on your body. A great perk about the caffeine that you get from purple tea is that 'caffeine boost' doesn't come with a quick high and crash like the caffeine from coffee. Tea slowly absorbs the caffeine and has a stable energy release, making it a longer-lasting and more effective energy stimulant than most caffeine-containing beverages.
Purple Tea also contains many useful stimulants such as antioxidants, and L-theanine, that energize your body and stimulate the brain, great for keeping you up and running throughout a cold day. Switching things up and opting for tea over coffee can have significant improvements to your day and overall wellness, especially in the winter.
