Wellness Teas Help to Fight What Ails You
The holidays are behind us. All the later-than-usual nights, the merry making at parties, and yes, the occasional over indulgence in alcohol and rich foods can take its toll on your immune system. And with a compromised immune system comes colds, disrupted sleep, a lack of focus, and stress.
What if you could brew up an antidote to all of the above and more? What if your afternoon pick-me-up was packed with polyphenols (phytochemical antioxidant powerhouses), amino acids, and catechins (the class of flavonoids that make green tea such a super hero)? Well, toss the what-ifs out the window because at Happy Lucky’s we carry a host of wellness teas that will see you through the winter and stave off all sorts of nastiness.
Our wellness blends are chock full of goodness—both in taste and the ingredients we use. Happy Lucky’s Leafsters are knowledgeable about adaptogenic herbs and roots, which have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine and play a big part in our formulation. Adaptogens work by interacting with the hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal (HPA) triad which regulates the body’s response to stress and fatigue. They may adjust hormone production and physiological responses to stress so that your body—from your mind to your energy levels and immune system—functions as it should.
Wellness teas are a quick and easy health tonic. With today’s busy modern day lifestyles, swapping out a latte for a more healthful herbal option is much easier than trying for a complete diet and exercise overhaul. While we absolutely advocate for a balanced lifestyle, supplementing your healthy habits with wellness teas is a direct route to managing the stressors that our overloaded calendars stack on top of us. Take a look at Happy Lucky’s wellness blends (and their powerful ingredients) that will boost your energy, build immunity, and make you feel so much better. Because, you’re worth it.
