5 Tips to Bring Peace to Your Tummy with Tulsi Teas
Put a bit of a strain on your tummy this Easter?!! Feeling a little bloated, over-loaded, tired or perhaps a little ‘troubled’ in the elimination department? You may just need to get your system back on track by giving it a little break from all the rich and indulgent goodies, and upping the ante on your intake of herbal tea. It could just be as easy as: reduce chocolate; increase Tulsi Tea!
The specially-formulated WELLNESS Range of Tulsi Teas from ORGANIC INDIA has been blended using the wisdom of Ayurveda to help bring you back into balance. Each blend is full of carefully selected certified organic herbs and spices that support and nourish your body, mind and spirit.
Here’s our five tips to bring peace to your tummy post-Easter!
Digest well with Tulsi TUMMY
Many things can compromise our digestion such as: poor food choices, overeating, too much caffeine, alcohol, stress, hurry and lack of routine (hmm, has Easter been a little like that?!) Fortunately, there are some delicious herbs and spices that have been known for thousands of years to support our digestive fire, helping us digest and assimilate well.
Tulsi TUMMY is designed to both soothe and activate the whole digestive system. The warming spices of ginger, tulsi and cinnamon gently warm the stomach and stimulate the digestive fire, while the cooling spices of licorice and peppermint can activate peristalsis and promote calm and relaxed digestion. Take small sips as you prepare your food and throughout your meal.
Detox daily with Tulsi CLEANSE
Detoxification is a natural process performed by our body almost constantly, to remove unwanted toxins; our liver and kidneys are our major detoxification organs. When we’ve over-indulged, we may have placed an added load on our detox organs, and might be feeling a little sluggish as a result. Conversely, the benefits of a healthy, functioning detox system include: feelings of sustained energy, good quality sleep, clarity, joy and a radiant complexion!
Tulsi CLEANSE combines powerful cleansing herbs with tulsi, turmeric and ginger to provide an effective daily liver and kidney cleanse. This herbal tea supports healthy detoxification to optimise liver and kidney function – perfect to get you back on track after an indulgent holiday period, or for everyday use! Drink every day.
Eliminate well with Tulsi LAX
We all know that regular elimination is essential for a healthy, happy (and comfortable!) life. Constipation has many causes, including several that occur alongside travel or holiday periods, such as: spending long periods sitting, changing your diet and not exercising enough.
Tulsi LAX is perfect for those times when our elimination is a little on the sluggish side. This natural, organic, gentle herbal laxative tea contains a blend of senna, peppermint, spearmint, licorice and three varieties of tulsi, lemony Vana Tulsi, spicy Krishna Tulsi and calming Rama Tulsi. The properties of these herbs are known to promote healthy elimination by directing the flow of movement downwards, relaxing the smooth muscles, moistening the bowel and calming the digestive tract. Drink only as required.
Sleep well with Tulsi SLEEP
The importance of a sound night’s sleep cannot be overstated when it comes to good health and waking up with a sense of vitality. There are a multitude of factors that can impede sound sleep, including changes to routine (e.g. during holiday periods and travel), changes to diet (e.g. adding extra sugar or caffeine) and digestive troubles.
A simple practice you can add to your daily routine is drinking Tulsi SLEEP. This blend contains herbs known in Ayurveda to be calming and soothing to the mind, our nerves and our digestive system, working together to promote sleep by soothing restlessness and facilitating relaxation. This truly unique blend of herbal tea includes tulsi, cardamom, chamomile, peppermint, shankpushpi, ashwagandha and gotu kola. Drink an hour before bed.
Feel well with Tulsi WELLNESS
To really get you back on track, and to keep you there (!) you should consider diving into the world of adaptogens. Adaptogenic herbs are renowned for bolstering our stress resilience by shifting biochemistry, helping us to adapt to whatever life throws at us, bringing us back into balance.
Tulsi WELLNESS contains four revered adaptogenic giants of Ayurvedic medicine:
- Tulsi – known as the ‘queen of herbs’
- Ashwagandha – known for giving the ‘strength of a horse’
- Gotu Kola – known for its mind-enhancing properties
- Moringa – the nutritional powerhouse
I’ve described this tea before as a ‘Powerhouse of Ayurvedic Magic’, definitely one to try out for supporting stress resilience, immunity, calm, sleep, and digestion. Drink every day.
Bounce back after Easter by sipping Tulsi Tea AND feel good knowing that in addition to caring for your own wellbeing, you are contributing to the wellbeing of entire villages of rural farmers India.
