Green Tea for Athletes

Our Wellness Range Teas, sold individually, or as a trio, are an Athlete's secret weapon.  If you are ready to perform at your peak, have less aches and pains with quicker recovery time, It's time for you to be sporting green tea in those water bottles. Tea is the second most consumed beverage on the planet next to water.   Check out some of the ways tea is beneficial to an Athlete's performance, recovery, overall health and well being.

 

Pure Green Tea 

Green tea is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks and contains one of the highest amounts of antioxidants of any tea. Natural chemicals called polyphenols in tea are what provide its anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects.  Drinking tea helps promote an active metabolism, boosts the circulatory system and detoxifies your inner body.

Green tea is approximately 20-45 percent polyphenols by weight, of which 60-80 percent are catechins such as EGCG. Catechins are antioxidants that are said to help prevent cell damage.

 

Peach & Apricot Green Tea 

Peach tea contains powerful antioxidants.  Rich in Vitamin C, iron, calcium and fluoride for dental and bone health.  This infusion's high level of antioxidant protects the body from cell damage caused by free radicals and helps to maintain healthy blood vessels.  Benefits of drinking this include reducing fatigue, improving concentration, aiding digestion, cardiac health and promoting healthy skin.

Apricots are high in potassium, a mineral that also serves as an electrolyte. In your body, it’s responsible for sending nerve signals and regulating muscle contractions and fluid balance.  As potassium works closely with sodium to maintain fluid balance, adequate intake may help prevent bloating and maintain healthy blood pressure.

 

Peppermint & Lemon Green Tea

helps promote an active metabolism as well as to detoxify your inner body. Tea helps boost the circulatory system which helps maintain a healthy body and lifestyle.  This tea has a strong aroma and flavor due to its menthol content, which helps in your recovery cycle and also why mint is popular in aromatherapy.   Lemon and mint can re-hydrate your body within minutes because it helps to replace fluids that are continually lost by the body due to exhaustion, stress, etc. 

This is an excellent herb tea that detoxifies, rejuvenates and soothes your body.  Relieves headaches, nausea, diarrhea and vomiting.

Lemons are packed with numerous nutrients beneficial to your health.  From digestion aid to fatigue buster, lemons are a great natural remedy.  Lemons are acidic to the taste, but are alkaline forming in the body.  In fact, they are one of the most alkaline forming food.  This makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body.  The vitamin C in lemons helps to neutralize free radicals linked to aging and most types of diseases.  It is said that drinking a glass of milk adding few mint leaves relieves abdominal pain.

Overall any tea made with fresh herbs is much better and healthier drink than sugary juices, cream loaded coffees, sodas, artificially flavored beverages etc. Drinking green tea can be a great source  of vitamins and minerals. Fresh herb teas have amazing nutritional values, are fresh and natural in taste and provides some excellent health benefits.
