Every day at Maximum FX, we brew a fresh pot of Aveda's Comforting Tea as a complimentary treat for our guests to enjoy. Our clients (and employees!) love the fresh, naturally sweet taste of the licorice and peppermint blend. But did you know that the Aveda Comforting Tea is not only delicious, but it's also good for you? Here are just a few of the benefits:
Licorice Tea Reduces Inflammation
Licorice tea is an excellent anti-inflammatory treatment. A recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that licorice tea had medicinal qualities, and was an effective treatment for reducing inflammation throughout the body. So whether you've worked your joints shopping up and down Congress or running around Lady Bird Lake, a cup of licorice tea can ease any discomfort and keep you going.
Peppermint Tea Boosts your Immune System
Peppermint Tea has been used for centuries to help ward off colds, the flu, and other minor illnesses. That's because peppermint is full of vital minerals like potassium, magnesium, and calcium. It also contains vitamins A and C, which boost your immune system and help protect against disease.
Licorice is Also Good for Your Liver
The chemicals in licorice have been show to remove toxins in the liver and keep it healthy. Some studies have even shown that the flavonoids in licorice may actually prevent damage from substances that normally cause deterioration of the liver. That's something to remember during the next SXSW!
Peppermint reduces stress
Stress is linked as a contributing factor in almost every illness. Even your skin and hair are affected by stress! The aroma and taste of peppermint tea have been shown to reduce the symptoms of stress. It also can be used to help relax muscles and relieve insomnia. Can't you just feel that stress melting away?
In addition to all these benefits, Aveda Comforting Tea is only 5 calories per serving and is 100% organic. It is naturally sweetened, so there is no sugar or caffeine. So next time you are in Maximum FX, enjoy a cup of Aveda Comforting Tea during your service. It's not only a refreshing treat for you, but a treat for your mind and body as well!
