Autumn Herbal Teas - Immune Boosting Season

As summer slowly draws to a close and we begin to see the signs of nature’s transition to fall,

it’s important to recognize that our bodies are also in transition from one season to another.

As the weather cools and autumn approaches, our body begins to crave warm, comforting

nourishment. Autumn is a perfect season to detox your body and boost your immune system in

preparation for winter. Our seasonal autumn teas are the perfect way to incorporate immune-fighting ingredients into your daily diet.

As the temperatures cool and the leaves begin to fall, our bodies begin to crave a diet that is

warm and nourishing. We can nourish our bodies with seasonal fruits such as apples and pears,

warm spices such as cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom, and of course, healthy, and soothing tea!

Our delicious Autumn, Immunity, Apple Cinnamon, and Florida Chai Tea Blends all contain some or all these vital ingredients to help our body adjust to the change of seasons. The change of seasons can be a stressor on our bodies. To help calm our nervous system and boost our immune system, we can brew a soothing tea such as our Immunity Blend. Two of the key ingredients, tulsi, and calendula, are especially powerful for this time of year. Tulsi is an apoptogenic herb that helps support our nervous system and regulate our stress response. It also contains phytochemicals that support healthy immune function. Calendula is an anti-inflammatory herb that also helps stimulate the respiratory system and clear the lungs. Calendula can also be found in our delicious Autumn Tea Blend.

Our Apple Cinnamon Tea Blend is a delicious way to boost your immune system. When

combined, cinnamon and apples are a nutrient powerhouse. Cinnamon has numerous health

benefits. It is a potent antioxidant and helps protect cells from free radicals. It is also a good source of micronutrients, such as vitamin K and manganese. Apples not only provide the

quintessential fall flavor but are also very nutrient-dense. Apples are high in fiber and rich in vitamin B-6, which helps carry and enhance the oxygen in the cells. Vitamin B-6 places a crucial role in building a strong immune system. According to recent studies from the University of

Arizona, cinnamon can help boost B-6, making our Apple Cinnamon tea the perfect immune-building combination!

Ginger is well known to have many health benefits and is found in both our Immunity and

Florida Chai Blends. Ginger is one of the best ingredients to strengthen the immune system.

Ginger is rich in gingerol, a chemical compound that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant

properties. Ginger’s warm and spicy qualities can also help move stuck congestion and warm

your core, which can help induce sweating-one of the best detox methods out there!
