Our spicy February blend of yerba, mate, ginger, turmeric, peppercorn, and citrus peel packs a medicinal punch. It’s also a fantastic way to warm up from the brutal winter cold.
- Mate’s caffeine and theobromine (the stimulent in chocolate) content gives a calm, focused energy, as well as high amounts of polyphenols (antioxidants), flavinoids (immune system boost, more effective than tea or wine), and saponins (provides anti-inflammatory properties).
- Black Pepper’s piperine slows down the metabolism of turmeric’s powerful compounds (curcumin is a powerful antioxidant, 10x more powerful than red wine’s resveratrol), and both have been found to support digestive health, liver health, and relief for joint stiffness/soreness.
- Citrus Peel adds a refreshing taste as well as containing antioxidants and some vitamin C.
- Dried Ginger has several times more gingerol than fresh ginger. Gingerol helps increase immune cells in the blood vessels to protect the body from bacteria and other toxic elements. Gingerol is also known to protect your body from contracting bacterial bronchitis.
