Is drinking tea your cup of tea? Green tea has tons of health benefits, including helping to prevent painful kidney stones. Research shows that green tea extract bonds to calcium oxalate and makes the resulting crystals a different shape, thus reducing the likelihood of them clumping together and forming large kidney stones.
ChaMoment is a delightfully refreshing and healthy tea beverage made from green tea, jasmine, and ashitaba.
This flavourful and nutritious drink can be enjoyed by anyone, anytime to:
Promote better sleep and relaxation – Jasmine’s delicate fragrance causes the body to release chemicals that help to improve your mood and cause you to naturally relax.
Alleviate anxiety and stress – L-theanine, a type of amino acid, found in green tea helps to reduce anxiety and stress, while the scent of jasmine promotes a sense of well-being and calm.
Achieve optimal health – Green tea and ashitaba contain amazing health benefits that speed wound healing, improve heart health, aid digestion, improve memory and concentration, and fight free radical damage.
Since ancient times, jasmine has been known as the queen of flowers. The uniqueness of this flower is that it only releases its fragrance when it opens at night. Thus, the scenting process where tea leaves are infused with the scent of jasmine only happens at night when the flowers bloom naturally.
A study published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry discovered that the heady, warm fragrance of jasmine is useful in soothing the senses, alleviating anxiety, and promoting better quality of sleep. It also helps to relieve stress, lift the spirits, and calm and relax the mind and body.
Ashitaba is an herb that grows primarily in the central region of Japan. It’s roots, leaves, and stems are used to make medicine to cure everything from anemia to asthma, cancer, depression, diabetes, gout, heartburn, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and menopause.
In a study conducted in 2010 and reported in the Journal of Medicinal Foods, ashitaba was shown to have anti-tumor, antioxidant and anti-diabetic activities. It is also reported to be antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory.
Ashitaba is also an excellent detoxifier as it is helps to cleanse the blood, improve the liver’s detoxification function, and promotes the growth of friendly intestinal bacteria.
