Herbal Tea Health Benefits

One of the main reasons people drink tea and use herbs such as ginseng is because of their antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are molecules that inhibit the oxidation of cells and believed to help protect against many forms of cancer. Since normal cell oxidation can cause an abundance of free radicals, a lot of research has gone into determining if antioxidants can actually fight cancer.  According to most research, ginseng is one herb that contains enough antioxidants to help boost your body's immunity and protect against free radical cell damage. Ginsenosides are the naturally active ingredient found in ginseng that is being studied for its health benefits. Ginseng is widely noted as an adaptogen herbal medicine but where it is grown has an impact on its strength and properties so be sure to find out what type you are buying and how your body reacts before consuming large quantities.  

Types of Ginseng

  • Korean Ginseng (Panax Ginseng)
  • Chinese Ginseng (Panax Ginseng)
  • Siberian Ginseng (Eleutherococcus Senticosus)
  • American Ginseng (Panax Quinquefolius)

Combined with green tea or black tea, ginseng could be the one two punch your body needs during stressful times or useful as a natural alternative to prevent fatigue and improve overall body performance. Our recommendation is to use fresh cut ginger root as an herbal tea or for spicing up meals.  An easy alternative is drink our blends of Green tea with Ginseng and Black tea with Ginseng.  Imperial Tea Garden herbal tea blends are made with Siberian Ginseng root and are perfect for getting your daily dose of ginseng to keep you performing at your peak.

American ginseng is less invigorating and considered milder.  This can be beneficial if you are using it in large doses or for extended periods of time.

 

Who Should Avoid Ginseng?

Like any supplement, ginseng has its share of side effects, some of which are serious. Many drugs interact poorly with it. Reports of ginseng users experiencing diarrhea, insomnia, headaches, rapid heartbeat, blood pressure fluctuations, and more.
