Creative Herbal Tea from Vana Tisanes
Creative Herbal Tea is smooth and earthy with a slightly sweet, floral aftertaste. Ashwagandha Root, Bacopa, and Ginkgo Biloba Leaves give a slightly bitter, earthy base. This tisane is elevated by the sweet, floral flavors of Chamomile and Lavender Flowers. Licorice Root adds a distinctive spice and depth to Creative Herbal Tea, while St. John’s Wort adds balance with its slightly bitter, peppery flavor.
Ashwagandha Root: Ashwagandha contains chemicals that calm the mind, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, and balance the immune system. It is an adaptogen, which means it helps the body to adapt to stress. It has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, and to improve sleep quality.
Bacopa Leaf: Bacopa Leaf is full of antioxidants with powerful active compounds which prevents the process called lipid peroxidation. Lipid peroxidation is linked to several health conditions including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative disorders. Bacopa Leaf helps to enhance brain function, resulting in improved spatial learning and better ability to retain information. It has been shown to improve cognitive function, including memory, attention, and processing speed. It also has anxiolytic effects, meaning it can help to reduce anxiety.
Chamomile Flower: Chamomile Flower is full of antioxidants, including apigenin which is a compound that binds to certain receptors in the brain to promote relaxation and sleepiness. It has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, and analgesic properties which are helpful in reducing pain.
Ginkgo Biloba Leaf: Ginkgo Biloba Leaf is full of antioxidants that combat or neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals. It also helps to improve brain function, enhance mental performance, promote emotional wellbeing and reduce anxiety.
Lavender Flower: Lavender Flower is deeply relaxing and reduces stress. The soothing benefits of Lavender Flower extend to its use as an anxiolytic, mood stabilizer, sedative, analgesic, and anti-convulsant with powerful neuroprotective properties.
Licorice Root: Licorice stimulates the production of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that is involved in motivation, reward, and learning. Dopamine is also important for attention and focus, which can help to improve creativity.
Passionflower: Passionflower supports the nervous system by promoting calm and reducing anxiety. The herb boosts the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain which lowers brain activity, promoting relaxation and improving sleep. Passionflower is an effective analgesic, helping to alleviate pain.
St. John’s Wort: St. Johns Wort contains the plant compounds hypericin and hyperforin which increase levels of serotonin in the brain. The herb is beneficial in alleviating anxiety, easing nerve pain, and reducing insomnia.
