Second only to water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage throughout the world. It is particularly well known for its potential health benefits, including boosting immunity and fighting off viruses.

There are certain ingredients in our tea blends that are considered great for boosting immunity and complementing a healthy lifestyle.

Turmeric has long been known for its health benefits and bright yellow color. Curcumin is the orange-yellow compound that gives turmeric its natural hue and is the primary reason that turmeric is so good for your immune system. Researchers have stated that curcumin helps activate T-cells and B-cells, the foundation of our immune systems. Drinking and consuming turmeric daily may strengthen your immune system, reduce internal inflammation from previous infections, and promote a healthy lifestyle. Try Art of Tea’s Bright Eyed Tea with turmeric and ginger if you are looking to incorporate more turmeric into your diet.
Ginger root has also been known to aid the immune system and help fight off viruses. Ginger is particularly known for promoting healthy digestion and regular digestive movements which is extremely important for immunity. Did you know that the majority of your immune system is found in your gut bacteria? If you are experiencing poor digestion, your gut bacteria is most likely suffering. By drinking ginger tea regularly, you may help regulate your digestion and in turn, boost your immune system. Here at Art of Tea, we love adding it to several of our blends. We recommend trying our Ginger Ginseng Tea and French Lemon Ginger Tea if you are looking to consume more ginger.
Licorice root is rich in antioxidants and flavonoids. Some research shows that flavonoids may help your body fight off harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. By drinking licorice root tea regularly, you may be able to boost your immunity and decrease your chances of infection. Licorice root may also aid in digestion, which we know can help strengthen your immune system. Try our Wellness Gut Health Bundle to add licorice root to your diet!
Echinacea supplements and teas have been consumed for years due to the belief that they may help fend off the common cold, seasonal flu, and shorten the life of a virus in your body. Although there is sparse research showing a strong association between echinacea and immunity, tea drinkers around the world swear by it! Our Feel Better Tea harnesses the power of echinacea, elderberry, and cinnamon, to help ease cold symptoms.
