Whenever I was an emotional teen (shocker, right?) my mom would always make me a tea. Honestly it kinda pissed me off (even tho it worked)- I’m having an existential crisis and you’re making me TEA instead of taking me on a trip to Hawaii?! How could you mom .
Fast forward to me spending my entire life realizing that my mom was right- again. Why is a little tea bag soaking in hot water such a life changer?! Well, there’s science behind why!
Tea has always been used through history to fix ailments- from sicknesses to stress, gut health, mental health, and emotional issues. The potentials are endless for the capabilities of teas and herbal remedies.
Also, for the record- there’s no such thing as a “weight loss tea”. There are teas that help with bloating and digestion, but do your research into any teas that claim to make you loose actual weight. They’re usually just anti-bloating ingredients with sweeteners that make the teas taste better and triggers your brain to crave that specific tea! *Rant over*
Here at The Switch, we did a lot of research before investing and carrying a tea product. We finally settled on Naturopathica for several reasons: 1) they take the greatest care to find the highest quality of ingredients, 2) they include ingredients that are proven to be effective, and 3) they focus on solving the problem, not just covering the symptoms. They have come out with a fabulous line of natural teas, tinctures, and healing honey to add to the teas!
