    Tea-herbs-onlinestore Tea It's no secret that drinking tea is good for you. Tea has been an integral part of traditional medicine and is revered as a cure-all in many Asian countries. The Chinese and Japanese have consumed this tea to improve health for centuries. It's even promoted in Western medicine as a way to treat symptoms of the cold and flu. The benefits of drinking tea go far beyond simply feeling better when you're sick. Drinking tea can help protect brain health, improve heart health, and may even prevent certain types of cancer. Here, we'll show you all the healthy benefits of drinking tea so you can settle in with your favorite mug and sip to your health. What is Tea? Tea is one of the most frequently consumed beverages in the world. There are two main categories of tea: true teas and herbal teas. In addition, there are flavored teas that combine a true tea base with herbal infusions. True Tea True teas are made using the leaves of the tea plant known as Camellia sinensis. These teas include green tea, white tea, oolong tea, pu-erh tea, and black tea. While these teas are made using the same leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, the difference in color and taste arises from the production process. Green tea and white tea are the true teas, which undergo the least processing. These teas are not oxidized. The leaves are harvested and dried to prevent the chemical reaction that turns the leaves a dark brown or black color. As a result, these teas retain their natural green color and are considered among the healthiest teas. Black tea is fully oxidized while oolong tea is only partially oxidized. Pu-erh tea is aged and considered a post-oxidized tea. These true teas offer a range of health benefits, but are considered slightly inferior to green tea. The caffeine content of true teas varies between the different types and on how the tea was produced. Tea-herbs-onlinestore Herbal Tea Herbal teas are made by infusing fruits, roots, herbs, leaves, and stems of a variety of plants. Herbal teas are also commonly called herbal tisanes. These teas boas health benefits that differ from true teas since they contain various compounds. Some of the most popular herbal teas include ginger tea, peppermint tea, and chamomile tea. Herbal teas do not contain any caffeine.

    Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes. Because of their antidepressant, stimulating, detoxifying, antibacterial, antiviral and calming properties, they are recently gaining popularity as a natural, safe and cost-effective therapy for a number of health concerns. There’s no wonder why, considering the high cost of healthcare bills and the side effects of conventional medications, adding such oils to your personal medicine cabinet and lifestyle can make a world of difference. This is especially true because essential oils benefits are vast and essential oils uses range from aromatherapy, household cleaning products, personal beauty care and natural medicine treatments. The particles in essential oils come from distilling or extracting the different parts of plants, including the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resin and peels. In fact, just one drop of an essential oil can have powerful health benefits. What is an essential oil? Typically created through the process of distillation — which separates the oil and water-based compounds of a plant by steaming — they are highly concentrated oils that have a strong aroma. In fact, sometimes they are called volatile aromatic oils because of their high concentration of the aromatic compounds. They also are simply called aromatherapy oils. How do essential oils work? By concentrating the oils of these plants, you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil. So, are you ready to harness the power of the world’s most proven therapeutic compounds? Are you ready to learn which pure, organic oils to use in your essential oil diffuser or in other ways? Explore the many benefits and uses, and open your mind to a whole new way of preventing and reversing health conditions that you’ve been battling for years. Read more to find out how to use essential oils and incorporate them into your healthy lifestyle! Benefits of Essential Oils 1. Balance Hormones There are essential oils for hormones that may help to balance your estrogen, progesterone, cortisol, thyroid and testosterone levels. Some oils, such as clary sage, geranium and thyme, help to balance out estrogen and progesterone levels in your body, which can improve conditions like infertility and PCOS, as well as PMS and menopause symptoms. A 2017 published in Neuro Endocrinology Letters indicates that geranium and rose have the ability to influence the salivary concentration of estrogen in women. This may be helpful for women who are experiencing menopausal symptoms that are caused by declining levels of estrogen secretion. Certain oils are also able to lower cortisol levels, which can help to improve your mood and reduce symptoms of depression, and increase testosterone levels, which can improve a man’s libido. 2. Boost Immunity & Fight Infections Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal properties that help to boost your immune system and fight infections. The chemical substances found in the oils, such as terpenes, esters, phenolics, ethers and ketones, have the potential to fight foreign pathogens that can threaten your health. Some of the best essential oils for your immunity include oregano, myrrh, ginger, lemon, eucalyptus, frankincense, peppermint (or Mentha piperita) and cinnamon. Studies have shown that essential oils effectively destroy several fungal, viral and bacterial pathogens, including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Helicobacter pylori and Candida albicans infections. Because antibiotic resistance is becoming such a major threat in modern health care, using these oils as a form of independent or combination therapy can help to fight bacterial infections in a safer and more natural way. Choose oregano oil for powerful immune-boosting properties, as it’s displayed both antiviral and antibacterial properties in lab research. Oregano oil contains carvacrol and thymol, two compounds that have antimicrobial effects and can inhibit the synthesis and growth of several types of bacteria. Frankincense oil’s immune-enhancing abilities may include helping to destroy dangerous bacteria, viruses and even cancers. For example, a lab study found that frankincense oil shows strong immunostimulant activity. (7a, 7b) Frankincense also demonstrates anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor effects when tested in lab studies and on animals — specifically, helping to fight the cells of specific types of cancer. (7c) A 2012 study showed that a chemical compound found in frankincense called AKBA may kill cancer cells that have become resistant to chemotherapy. (7d) 3. Support Digestion Another researched essential oils benefit is their role in aiding and improving digestion. Some oils help to relieve upset stomach, indigestion, diarrhea, stomach spasms and even conditions of the gastrointestinal system, such as

    Herbal medicine has been around for centuries. According to Steven Chasens, an herbalist,  “Herbal medicine has been used as kitchen medicine for thousands of years, and while our body’s response to these natural treatments has not changed, we now have more global choices than ever.” That means that we now have more access to healthy herbs than we did before. This is definitely a good thing.

    What Is an Herb?

    Herbs and spices get mixed up a lot. So to set them apart, let’s first define each. Herbs are simply the leaves of a plant. That’s it. Spices come from the roots, bark, or seeds. So basically, any part of a plant that is not a leaf is automatically considered a spice. Some plants have both. Take the cilantro plant, for example. The herb here is called the cilantro (leaves). The spice is called coriander (the seeds of the cilantro plant).

    THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF SPICES We’re big proponents of incorporating herbs and spices into foods for more than one reason. First, they make healthy foods taste better. Using herbs and spices is an easy way to add flavor when you’re cutting back on salt, for example. And, many people enjoy eating lean meats and vegetables more—even without added fat—when herbs and spices are used. This can help you reduce your calorie intake, and limit the amount of saturated fat (think butter) you use in your cooking. As if the benefit of amazing taste wasn’t enough, the compounds in herbs and spices can have some powerful positive effects on your health as well—another reason why they play a starring role in the food that comes out of Canyon Ranch kitchens. Research into the specific ways herbs and spices can improve health has mushroomed in the past few years. We are still a ways from knowing just how to optimize these benefits, but we do feel confident encouraging you to spice things up to boost the potential of your home-cooked meals. Antioxidant activity—Many of the compounds in herbs and spices fight oxidation and free radicals that can damage cell membranes, DNA and proteins. Oxidative damage and stress contributes to many diseases including cancer, cardiovascular diseases and Alzheimer’s disease. Consistently leading the list when it comes to this benefit: cinnamon, cloves, oregano, peppermint and thyme. Anti-inflammatory activity—Inflammation can be both noticeable, like the pain of arthritis or gastritis, or hidden, like the chronic inflammation thought to be part of cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Many herbs and spices, like turmeric and cumin, are potent anti-inflammatory agents. Blood sugar control—Cinnamon, in particular, is being studied for its ability to keep blood sugar levels stable and enhance the effect of insulin in people who have insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome. Antimicrobial activity—Chiles, basil, cinnamon, coriander, cumin, garlic and ginger are just a few of the spices that protect against harmful bacterial growth. They have traditionally been used to keep meat safe from bacteria in warm climates, and their role in maintaining healthy bacterial growth in the large intestine is being explored. Anti-cancer activity—Many herbs and spices contain compounds that help inhibit tumor growth, prevent cell mutation and influence enzymes that aid the liver in clearing potentially toxic substances. And more!—There are likely many other beneficial compounds in herbs and spices. Take, for example, the finding that spicing up your food with red pepper may help you eat less. People who were given red pepper either on their food or in capsules ate about 25 percent less at their next meal compared with those who didn’t have the spice, according to a study in Nutrition Today. It also seemed to increase the number of calories they burned, suggesting that the active ingredient in red peppers, capsaicin, has a direct effect on metabolism.
