Gut Healthy Chai Tea

We keep hearing about how healthy it is to eat a plant-based diet (or at least more of one)! Well… one reason is because of special plant compounds called polyphenols, which can have a huge positive impact on your health.

The good news is, you don’t have to go full-on vegan to get their benefits. Researchers are still learning more about exactly HOW polyphenols work, but one thing is for sure: they are antioxidants that fight inflammation in your body.

You can find polyphenols in everything from wine, grapes, and turmeric, to coffee, chili peppers, and berries! … And, you guessed it, also TEA! Especially black tea.

The polyphenols in tea appear to promote the growth of the good bacteria in your gut AND make it harder for bad bacteria (like salmonella) to grow. Plus, black tea contains properties that help repair the lining of your digestive tract.

This recipe also contains other gut-friendly ingredients like cloves, turmeric, peppercorns, and ginger.

Your gut plays a huge role in your health, affecting not just your digestion, but your mood, energy, aches and pains, and even your brain function.

Your gut is the host to an entire microbiome of bacteria – an estimated 100 trillion of them!

Keeping those bacteria happy, healthy, and in balance is a big part of a wellness lifestyle. As you can imagine, what you eat plays a very important role.
