Celebrate with Chrysanthemum
Posted on Nov 18, 2013
The holidays are nearly here!
Help reduce discomfort from your favorite holiday foods,
by celebrating this season with a cup of Chrysanthemum!
In traditional Chinese medicine, Chrysanthemum is often used to treat respiratory infections. It is naturally rich in Vitamins A, B, and C, which boost the immune system to help fight bacteria growth. Indulging in sugar can give your head that “heavy fog” feeling, but a cup of Chrysanthemum tea can help relieve sinus and head congestion. It’s anti-viral properties will also be a great defense against the cold and flu season.
Chinese medicine also shows that drinking Chrysanthemum can boost digestion, especially of oily and greasy foods. Plus! This floral tea can help cleanse the liver from alcohol consumption and remove toxins from the blood. Stock up now! And balance this season’s sugar, rich food, and alcohol intake, by regularly drinking Chrysanthemum tea, and drinking an additional 1-2 cups before holiday dinners & events!
