Herbal Tea Benefits
We all know that drinking six to eight glasses of pure water a day is good for us. Staying hydrated has a positive impact on skin, hair, bones, joints, appetite, and attitude. However, many people find it difficult to drink that much plain water.
It is important to realize that you can get your water in other ways. Fresh fruits and vegetables provide water and so do non-carbonated and non-caffeinated beverages. To increase your water intake, there is nothing better than delicious herbal teas to increase your water intake and gain some healthy benefits on the side. Here is a list of some of the more popular herbal teas and their positive effects on you and your well-being.
Peppermint tea is delicious and refreshing. It opens your sinuses and paradoxically can both calm you down and perk you up! It is also an excellent choice if you have an upset tummy.
Chamomile tea is also very good for an upset tummy and very good for relaxing at bedtime. It is delicious with a little honey and lemon.
Echinacea tea is excellent when you feel a cold coming on. Drink a strong cup of it, and you will feel better right away. While you are under the weather, drink 2 - 4 cups a day to boost your immune system for a speedy recovery. As a preventative, drink a cup of Echinacea tea once a week. It will help keep you immune system in tip-top condition.
Gingko Biloba tea is a great alternative to coffee when you are trying to concentrate and stay alert. It is good for perking you up on the spot and also as a preventative measure. Drinking gingko biloba tea on a regular basis will improve your memory and boost your immune system.
Ginger tea has a crisp, spicy flavor that is refreshing and bracing. Ginger is good for poor circulation and also helps settle your stomach. It is very delicious in combination with Lemongrass tea.
Senna tea is a very good, gentle laxative. A soothing and tasty cup of this tea at bedtime will help you stay regular naturally.
Both green tea and black tea are rich in antioxidants; however, they may act as a diuretic so are not particularly helpful for hydration. Still, they do make a refreshing drink from time to time and have their own benefits. Try steeping green or black tea with one of the more flavorful herb teas or some of the delicious fruit teas that are on the market to make your own tasty flavored teas.

Try purchasing herbal teas from Amazon! Generally, you get half a dozen boxes of a flavor at much lower prices than you would pay in the store! You can put in a regular order and have your tea delivered to you conveniently on a regular basis.
