The Elixer Of Life: Ancient Healing Teas For A Long Life
For centuries humans have been looking for the secret of eternal living. Searching out the legendary elixir of life or the fountain of youth. We are obsessed with longer living, however, most of us are missing the very basic key to a long, healthy lifestyle. A well balanced and all natural diet, plenty of water, teas, and enough sleep. Whilst this isn’t going to ensure you live forever, it might extend your life long enough and increase your chances of finding the secret to eternal life.
We have searched the world, so you don’t have to, to bring you three of the secret ingredients you need to help you along your way to finding this natural healing potion. So settle down and read on.
Firstly, Ashitaba. This is a Japanese powder which is 30% more antioxidant than Matcha green tea. From a plant which resembles celery, the powder comes from the delicious leaves and is packed full of natural vitamins and minerals that will help to detox your body, decrease blood sugar spikes, improve your heart health and give you all the vitamin B12 you could dream of.
It does have a strong flavor, so you either need to drink it down and except that the Elixir of Life probably isn’t going to taste that great, or you could mix it up in a juice. You can even use it in cooking, which is just like our next secret potion ….. Matcha.
So Matcha is very similar to Ashitaba although it may be easier to purchase in the western world. It makes a brilliant swap for that morning cup of coffee as it contains plenty of caffeine, however, unlike coffee which is mainly an acidic form, Matcha is alkaline and so will help manage the buzz and keep the effect lasting longer. It will also prevent the crash that coffee tends to give us. Alongside this, it helps to boost regeneration of cells, improves circulation and can increase your spiritual awareness helping you to meditate but stay alert as you do so.
This brings us along to the last secret powder we are going to share with you. Lurking in the sea and on the shoreline is a very potent algae which is full of minerals and nutrients. It is a dark green and very strong smelling powder, known as Spirulina. Now, we aren’t going to lie, if you can chuck a few teaspoons of spirulina powder into a glass of water and drink it all, you are an incredible human being. The taste is so strong it almost overpowers everything you put it with. However, the benefits far outweigh the cons and it can promote total body health. Here is a brief look at a few of the benefits:
- Cancer reduction and prevention
- Radiation and anti-viral protection
- Heavy metal detoxification
- Optimal cardiovascular health (lowers bad cholesterol)
- Optimal brain, eye, liver, and kidneys health
- Suppress appetite/hunger while increasing energy
- Normal immune system and inflammatory response
As you can see, there are some pretty incredible reasons to include teas and ancient healing powders in your life!
