Our new line of SuperTeas were developed to bring you functional and delicious instant beverages that you know and love us for, but this time to keep you cool, calm and quenched. SuperTeas introduce new elements to nourish your body and mind in areas that so many of us desperately need. They were intentionally formulated for anxious times to provide for support for hydration, gut health and stress.
In addition to refreshing botanicals and juicy fruit nectars that provide the indulgent flavor on a hot summer day, we wanted our SuperTeas to be functional. We’ve always believed that self-care should be enjoyable and accessible, and that mind and body support can come in the pleasurable form of a tasty beverage rather than hard-to-swallow powders and pills.
Read on for the scoop on the powerful new blends of science-backed herbs and botanicals that make our new line of SuperTeas so unique.
75% of adults in the U.S. are chronically dehydrated, which is why hydration was one of our main focuses for this new line. Electrolytes are one of the most beneficial ways to guarantee that your body is actually absorbing the water that you’re drinking. Functional hydration goes beyond simply drinking water, so we infused our SuperTeas with an electrolyte-packed blend of coconut water, lemon and himalayan pink salt. We don’t want your water consumption to be for nothing if your body isn’t prepared to absorb the water you’re drinking. Electrolytes help with exactly that - they prep your cells to draw the water in and absorb it, so that you’re hydrated on a holistic level.
Tremella, also known as the “white jelly mushroom,” is another part of our hydration blend. It supports hydration specifically for your skin, as its compounds have the ability to retain large amounts of water. As an adaptogen, tremella also provides stress support through nourishment for your skin. Read The Scoop on Tremella for more on this powerful mushroom.
Dehydration and stress directly impact our digestion, which is why we decided to incorporate a new gut health blend into our SuperTeas. Just like our SuperLattes, they contain science-backed bacillus coagulans probiotics. Probiotics like this help to balance the friendly bacteria (which is depleted in many of us!) in your digestive system, and we believe that a daily dose in your SuperTea is the best way to remember to take them.
The new addition to our gut blend is Slippery Elm Root, a powerful herb that coats mucus membranes in your digestive tract to help smooth movement of food, calm irritation and reduce inflammation (J Altern Complement Med, 2018). This provides the ease of better digestion, but it also goes beyond that to ease and calm your mind. Digestion and mental health are inextricably linked (read more about this here!).
We live in anxious times. And the more we learn about the effects of stress on our bodies, the more we know how important it is to reduce it. All of our products (SuperLattes included!) contain stress supportive adaptogens, but this time we’ve incorporated a new mushroom into the mix. Meet: cordyceps.Cordyceps provides balanced energy and stress support through fighting inflammation. Stress can trigger inflammation in your brain and your body, affecting your mental and physical state (Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, 2017).
