As the human population continues to grow and people are living longer, our living environment has changed significantly. With periodic outbreaks of infectious diseases such as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) and now the Coronavirus Pandemic occurring more frequently, there is greater need to support our immune systems.
The human immune system is made up of organs, cells and microbes (infection fighting chemicals) and is our main protection against bacteria, viruses and disease. The internal line of defense of the immune system are white blood cells, antibodies, proteins, the lymphatic system, the spleen, bone marrow and the thymus.
For centuries, herbal medicine has been used to improve the health and performance of the immune system and spices and roots such as Cinnamon and Ginger have been referred to as the “go to” ingredients for many herbal teas and remedies. Our immune systems seem to be most under stress during the Winter months when our bodies are subject to colder temperatures and hits by everchanging strains of the cold and flu. For this reason, herbal teas are commonly consumed due to their warming and healing properties.
Hemp Immune Tea is a herbal tea that has recently been developed to improve the strength of the immune system and is infused with immune support ingredients including:
Cinnamon- Cinnamon has both antifungal and antibacterial properties making a great ingredient that can assist our immune systems in fighting off harmful bacteria that we encounter on a daily basis
Ginger- Ginger also contains antibacterial properties which provides the immune system with extra support. Ginger is also great for nausea and sore stomached due to its soothing abilities. It also contains a compound called Gingerol, an anti-inflammatory compound which is known to relax blood vessels and thin the blood.
Sencha Green Tea- Due to its high levels of Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant, Macha Green Tea is a great immunity booster. EGCG helps your body to produce more T-cells which fight harmful pathogens and reduce inflammation in the body.
Licorice Root- Licorice Root helps in the production of clean, healthy phlegm, which as gross and counterintuitive as this sounds is extremely important in respiratory system functionality and health.
Orange Peel- Due to its high levels of Vitamin C and A, Orange peel is a key ingredient in keeping colds and flu at bay.
Elderflower- Rich in anthocyanin antioxidants, Elderflower increases immune system resilience by encouraging the production of cytokines- a protein that acts as a messenger within the immune system thus improving immune system response within the body.
Combining the healing benefits of hemp seeds with the age old immune boosting properties of Cinnamon, Ginger, Sencha Green Tea, Spearmint leaf, Licorice Root, Orange Peel and Elderflower, Hemp Oz Immune Tea will give your immune system the boost it needs to stay fighting fit.
