Learn about herbs

Herbs, leaves or roots are the soul of herbal teas. Each plant has unique properties: from relaxing chamomile to stimulating ginseng. Being familiar with herbs or preparations and their natural effects on the body is important to fully exploit the potential of herbal teas.
But, what matters most of all is the quality of the ingredients which significantly influences the final result. In fact, it is always advisable to opt for herbs with properly selected ingredients so that they are truly effective but also to reduce the risk of contamination by unwanted substances.
If we focus on the phytochemistry of herbs, it is surprising to see how a wide range of natural compounds present in herbs are able to transmit beneficial effects on health.
THE flavonoids, for example, are powerful antioxidants that protect cells from damage caused by free radicals and also reduce inflammation.
The adaptogens like ginseng they help the body cope with stress. They normalize physiological functions and contribute to maintaining internal balance.
THE polyphenols they antioxidants offer a natural defense against cellular damage. These compounds not only protect cells from free radicals but can also help prevent many ailments.
Also the effect of herbal teas on digestive system should not be underestimated. Herbs such as mint help relax the stomach muscles, or herbs such as chicory, mallow or marshmallow help with digestion and relieve gastrointestinal discomfort. While ginger is useful for stomach pain and to reduce nausea.
The support to immune system is another key aspect. Herbs like echinacea can strengthen your immune system and help your body fight colds or other infections. While dog rose or karkadè are a rich supply of vitamins.

Infusion or herbal tea?

There is a difference between infusion and herbal tea. While the infusion is made with plant parts more delicate, like the leaves, the herbal tea also embraces parts such as roots, berries or bark.
Infusions are usually prepared by pouring hot water directly onto the ingredients and leaving them to infuse for a short period of time, usually 3 to 5 minutes.
The herbal tea, on the other hand, is left to boil for a longer period, on average 10 to 15 minutes, to allow greater extraction of the active ingredients.
The choice depends a lot on the individual preferences. They are both very useful. Some people prefer herbal teas for their specific benefits, while others choose infusions for a more delicate taste or for the convenience of decidedly quicker preparation.

Natural herbal teas between preparation and dosage

The correct preparation of herbal teas is essential. The infusion time can vary for each herb: from sage leaves to ginger root.
It is always advisable to follow the instructions and use the recommended quantities to obtain the right balance of taste and benefits and to avoid excesses that could compromise the taste or cause side effects.
Furthermore, it is important to never underestimate the choice of water which plays a fundamental role in the preparation of herbal teas. It is better to use good quality water, preferably filtered, to ensure a pure taste and maximum extraction of the active ingredients of the herbs.
Then, herbal tea preparations always work preserved correctly to preserve freshness and benefits. In the original packaging bags or in airtight containers, away from direct light and above all, from humidity to guarantee their durability and quality.
