Organic White Tea (Camellia sinensis): White tea is picked just before the buds fully open, when they’re covered in fine white hairs. It is the least processed of the teas which is why it retains more of its antioxidants. White tea is packed with polyphenols, which have antioxidant benefits. They help reduce chronic inflammation by protecting the body against damage from free radicals.
Organic Butterfly Blue Pea Flower (Clitorea ternatea): A Nootropic (memory/brain tonic) herb that is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, improves memory, circulation, youthful appearance, and overall fertility and stamina.
Blue Cornflower Petals (Centaurea cyanus): Also rich in antioxidants, this botanical is most often used in topical applications, especially for effectively washing out wounds, but also for mouth ulcers and, even more so, treatment of the eye area (corneal ulcers, conjunctivitis, etc.). However, when used internally, Blue Cornflower acts as a kidney and liver tonic, as well as a diuretic, helping to eliminate swelling/water retention/edema, improving digestion and minimizing bloating. Corn is also a sacred food of Yemaya.
Organic Coconut Chips: Sacred food of the Goddess Yemaya, often left for Her as an offering or cooked in foods to celebrate Her, aligning with her sacred color of white.
The numerous health benefits of white tea are too extensive to include on this page, but a handful are listed below:
Polyphenols like those found in white tea may help relax blood vessels, boost immunity and prevent bad cholesterol from becoming oxidized. These factors may help lower the risk of heart disease.
White tea is a good source of caffeine and catechins like EGCG. These two compounds may have a synergistic effect that helps the body burn fat and boost metabolism.
White tea is a great source of fluoride, catechins and tannins. Several studies have shown that these compounds can help fight bacteria that cause plaque on teeth
Test-tube studies have found that white tea extract suppressed several types of cancer cells and stopped them from spreading. However, more human research is needed.
Insulin resistance is a harmful condition linked to many chronic diseases. Studies have shown that polyphenols like those found in white tea may lower the risk of insulin resistance and improve blood sugar control.
Osteoporosis is common among the elderly and may lead to fractures. Compounds found in white tea, including the polyphenols called catechins, may lower the risk of osteoporosis by promoting bone growth and suppressing bone breakdown.
White tea and its compounds may protect the skin from damage linked to aging. This includes external damage from the sun’s UV rays and internal damage from cellular components that may harm the skin’s fiber network.
EGCG, which is found in white tea, has been linked with a lower risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. EGCG may help fight inflammation and prevent proteins from clumping and damaging nerves, two conditions linked with these disorders. (Source: Healthline.com)
