The ingredients that make up the subtle hot chocolate flavour of our new tea include: Organic Cocoa Husk, Organic Rosebud, Organic cinnamon and Vegan Cultures – Bacillus Coagulans.
Organic Cocoa Husk usually ends up on the landfill but this natural superfood is rich in nutrients such as, Vitamin B, A, iron, Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium, and Antioxidants, not to mention it tastes amazing!
Organic Rosebud helps relieve accumulated toxins and is also great for ‘that time of the month’.
Organic Cinnamon thanks to the antifungal and antibacterial properties, cinnamon helps in enhancing skin complexion and might help against acne and eczema.
Vegan Cultures the gut and the skin are intimately connected. An inflamed gut will often show up as inflammation of the skin. Good cultures like in our tea help prevent harmful bugs in your environment from taking hold and causing infection. They will also trigger the production of natural moisturisers in the skin, keeping the skin barrier healthy.
The cultures also known as probiotics, which make up our Cocoa Glow tea, are “good” bacteria that when ingested in adequate amounts help support overall health.
Not all cultures are the same. Different strains offer different benefits and some culture strains survive digestive transit and temperature better than others. The most common culture types that comprise the majority of bacteria with recognised cultured activity: Lactobacillus, Bifidobacteria and Bacillus. The Bacillus culture used in this tea is a spore-forming culture which means that it is designed by nature to survive even the toughest conditions. With a natural occurring coat, it can survive both boiling and stomach acid. The protective “shell” only breaks when in the perfect condition – the gut.
Research has shown that the cultures used in this tea are 10 times more likely than yogurt cultures to make it to your gut alive!
Over 25 Studies have been conducted on this culture and findings show these key benefits for our bodies.
Our supplier’s cultured teas are blended and packed with love in the country side in England. The culture is sourced from one of the most advanced development facilities in the USA where they are also tested for their efficacy. In their loose tea form they are of course plastic and waste free, adding to the list of benefits of this tea.
