It works!

Looking to find teas that can actually relieve you of discomforts such as bloat or digestive relief? Searching for teas that are amazing for your health, de-stressing, or even aiding in sleep and other forms of wellness?


I stumbled across this recipe within the wonderful world of YouTube... This one's pretty popular. So let's discuss! This tea does bring therapeutic and health results that I most definitely noticed and there is no gimmick if you ALREADY own the ingredients.. right?


The major perks are the easily accessible ingredients which are literally my favorite BEASTS when it comes to brain, body, health, and beauty.


Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar, and Tumeric have and will continue to be staples on my list for ingredients that bring major results.


As noted in another one of my previous blogs, Tumeric is an Anti-Inflammatory Super Hero. I always notice a major difference in my joints and knee pain when adding it to my smoothies, tea, or by supplement. Green Tea is still the powerful antioxidant that it claims to be, and although conflicting hypotheses still exist in Scientific Research for Vinegar, Bragg's Apple Cider vinegar has a major reputation for having the ability to provide a brief energy boost within at least 8oz of water/tea etc., purification and detox properties and advantages for the skin, kidney/bladder, and bloat.


Optional *Cayenne pepper, other spices, and heavily spicy foods are known to boost metabolism but it is normally proven to be momentary— but still noted for education sake— hey, who are we to steal its thunder?


This tea's been helpful for more than weightloss so I figure on this blog is where this recipe deserves the shine..


It's reported that you can feel the relief difference. My opinion is a bit biased as I always do with warm beverages overall and I tend to always feel a reduction of anxiety with tea overall. There's also some stress reduction of feeling better and also associated with digestive comfort and increased digestive health-- not to mention, hydration and the relief of sugar and snack cravings.


Here are the benefits I've noticed:


Pros:

*Better digestion,

*Dramatic decrease in nighttime cravings

*Less carb/sweet withdrawal (intense craving, headaches etc.,)

*Slightly helpful in Coffee/Caffeine withdrawal (for those who do not drink coffee regularly)

*Decreased bloat/ stomach discomfort



Feel free to implement tea when indulging in a hearty meal or many tea flavors.


Nowwww I wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t include the:


Cons:

*Drink before 8pm or it can be disruptive to sleep, reversing the full sleep benefits!

* Too much tumeric and cayenne can burn your throat so keep that hand light.

*Agave or Honey can cause your mixture to coagulate and gel.. frequently stir or forego the sweetener if it’s a bother... I DEFINITELY do.

 

☕️ Recipe ☕️


Directions: Take 1-2x a Day; Once in the morning before first meal and once in the evening after your last meal.


☕️ Ingredients:

- Hot Water + Green Tea / Herbal or Black Tea

- 1 Tblsp (Tablespoon) or Cap full of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (w/Mother)

- 1 Tblsp Ground Tumeric

[ *I personally use a teaspoon.. That much Tumeric was harsh to my throat, and well? Same results, but I wanted to give you the original recipe]

- 1 Tblsp Ground Cinnamon

- 1 Tsp (Teaspoon) Lemon Juice

- 1 very small pinch of Cayenne Pepper ( or Black Pepper; said to activate the Tumeric)

+Honey or Agave (if desired, for Taste; optional)

 

☕️ ☕️ ☕️


Water, all-on-its-own of course, provides hydration and detoxification that our body needs.


Tea tends to add a whole new level of antioxidant power and depending on the tea, it can improve health, just as much as it's an amazing addition to a night-time routine.


Remember. Discussing this recipe is not my advice or even avid suggestion to try. I just love to share my experiences and I love to hear your experiences and recipes too! This one seems to be an extremely popular one on Youtube-- so let me know if you've tried it.
