Our Top Tea Choices
Whether you like it iced or hot, there’s so much to love about tea. One of the things to love is the way certain teas can boost your immunity. That’s right. In addition to providing an overall feel-good perk-me-up at any time of the day, some teas are known for providing strong support for your immune system. We here at One Less Trip compiled a list of our top choices so you can enjoy them, too.
Ingredients to look for:
Before we dive headfirst into the specific tea varieties we adore for their immune-enhancing properties, let’s take a look at the ingredients that provide those properties.
Echinacea: The roots and extracts of this herb seem to have an effect on immunity by increasing the number of white blood cells, which are known for fighting infections.
Elderberry: Flowers and berries from the elderberry plant are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, both of which can deliver a bountiful boost to your immunity.
Ginseng: The roots, stems, leaves and extracts of ginseng are known for maintaining immune system stability. This, in turn, increases resistance to microbial attacks and illness.
Vitamin C: Hailed as one of the most powerful immune boosters out there, vitamin C has a solid reputation for fending off maladies, speeding up healing, and increasing energy.
