Taking a Look into Masala Chai
Most drink tea because they relatively enjoy the meditative process of creating a little magic in a cup, or simply because of the taste and scents that consume the room. We all know and have heard about the health benefits of tea but, how much do you really know about the other ingredients such as spices, that you’re getting from the specific cup you’re drinking.
Due to the fact chai actually contains several spices, Not very many know that “chai” is actually a form of medicine used by the ancient Ayurveda methods. I took the list of ingredients to Tea Blendz Masala Chai Explosion ( black tea, ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, coriander and clove.) and we’ll help explain some of their best benefits.
Probably the most widely known for its effective cold and flu assistance, ginger also helps assist the body with so much more. Thanks to its awesome ability to absorb and stimulate nutrients ginger offers antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory effects.
Of course cardamom has more than a few benefits but the most relatively predominant feature is its ability to improve digestion by speeding up the process. Cardamom reduces inflammation that can be associated with heart burn, and apparently helps reduce acidity level within the gut flora to assist with gas, bloating and indigestion.
As per a previous Tea Blendz blog based on cinnamon, Cinnamon can improve sensitivity to insulin, and there is seemingly a link to improving neurodegenerative diseases. Cinnamon has highly potent polyphenols and has been linked with reducing the risk of heart disease by reducing the levels of LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
Also known as cilantro to many of us, has a list of health benefits that seems to take pages and pages worth of explanations. To make it short, Coriander has components and oils that help with skin inflammation & skin disorders, lowers cholesterol levels, reducing blood pressure, mouth ulcers, anemia, properties aiding in anti-histamines, bone health, digestion and much much more!
Just to name a few, cloves are acknowledged to have: antioxidant, anti-septic, local anesthetic, anti-inflammatory, warming and soothing properties, anti-flatulent properties by providing higher gut motility therefore, helping relieve indigestion and constipation problems.
Therefore to sum up chai, is to expect lots of advantageous health perks such as digestion aid, help with anti-inflammation, improved blood sugar levels and an overall super potent mix in helping fight free radicals through the body’s natural oxidation process through its superb antioxidant structures.
