Why a Chai Latte a Day Will Help Keep the Doctor Away...
The old saying of an apple a day keeps a doctor away is getting a bit old now, but a chai latte a day - that’s something we can get behind. A chai latte is filled with surprising health benefits that allows you to enjoy a cup each day without any guilt!
Whether it be a chai latte with black tea, or a caffeine free chai option, the actual spices used for the blend are what make chai so special:
Chai Lords utilise the natural stuff. We source African black tea, Certified Organic Panela sugar, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, ginger, cardamom, black pepper and pink Himalayan salt for a full bodied cup of chai.
Certified Organic Panela Sugar
Panela sugar is pure, unrefined whole cane sugar. It is said to be high in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. It adds a natural sweetness to each cup without the bad stuff.
It has been said that cinnamon helps to lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. Talk about a hero spice!
Cloves are full of antioxidants! The antioxidants found in cloves can help reduce your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.28
This one is for gut health! Star anise also helps improve digestion, alleviate cramps and reduce nausea. Consuming star anise tea after meals helps treat digestive ailments such as bloating, gas, indigestion and constipation.
Ginger is full of health benefits! Ginger is said to keep your mouth healthy, calms nausea, soothes sore muscles (for those that hit the gym, this one’s for you!), lowers blood sugar and eases period pains.
Cardamom can help fight bad breath! While many people may think of mint as breath fresheners, people have used cardamom for this purpose for centuries. It also works as an anti-inflammatory that is high in antioxidants and are said to ease digestive problems.
Black pepper and its active compound pipeline may have powerful antioxidant activity, enhance the absorption of certain nutrients and beneficial compounds, and improve digestive health.
Pink Himalayan Salt
Some people describe pink Himalayan salt as one of the purest salts available, and say it boasts several health benefits. Compared to our regular table salt that is heavily refined, it is a positive alternative!
