Hemptealicious™ Hemp Tea
Hemptealicious™ Hemp Tea contains a full spectrum of naturally occurring cannabinoids and plant terpenes from organically grown hemp to support balance in your endocannabinoid system.
The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, responsible for most of the wellness benefits you receive when consuming it. Curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory properties known to block the action of inflammatory molecules in the body which have positive effects for many suffering from inflammatory conditions.
Ginger root is super cleansing and grounding. The main bioactive compound in ginger, known as Gingerol, has many powerful health benefits. Gingerol is a rich antioxidant, it has anti-inflammatory properties, helps ease nausea, supports the body to fight off infection, and more. These are just a few of the many benefits of ginger!
The benefits of fresh lemon juice are endless. Lemon is rich in antioxidants, vitamin c, potassium and helps flush toxins out of the body. In addition to supporting brain health, nerve function, digestion, improving immune function, it can also help you lose weight and boost your energy. Lemon is a superfood with lots of cleansing properties. These are just a few reasons why you should incorporate it into your diet.
Raw honey has antiseptic properties and can kill off unwanted bacteria and fungus in the body. Raw honey also contains many vitamins and minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, Vitamin C, B6, B12, A, E, and D. Use local raw honey if you have seasonal environmental allergies. One of the benefits of local honey is that it contains local pollen which can help your immune system fight off environmental irritants and reduce allergy symptoms.
The active ingredient in cayenne pepper is known as capsaicin, which gets all the credit for the powerful healing properties cayenne possesses. Cayenne pepper contains Vitamin A, E, C, B6, K, and minerals from manganese to potassium. It is a superb metabolism booster, aids in weight loss, supports digestive health, and heart health. If you are serious about cleansing, cayenne pepper is a key ingredient and will give your hemp tea some extra spiciness.
Enjoy your hemp tea cleanse!
