I’m always on the lookout for simple ways to support good gut health.
Your gut is at the ROOT of your health.
Your gut is where you take all the good stuff you eat and drink and transform it into the many building blocks your body needs to make energy, think clearly, sleep well, maintain a healthy weight, build muscle, and clear out toxins that need clearing out daily so you can thrive.
It is my passion is to work with people like you whose health symptoms–like low energy, gut/digestive issues, excess weight, mood imbalance, and skin & sleep problems–are getting in the way of you living life fully and with a sense of freedom in your body. I help you to regain your health so you can feel great and free to enjoy life fully.
Today I’d like to introduce you to something called Pique tea and some of its health benefits.
What is Pique Tea?
Pique tea are tea crystals that come in packets. No tea bags, boiling water, or waiting. You open the packet, pour it into a cup of water, the crystals dissolve, and you’re good to go. They offer black, green, and herbal tea varieties.
Health Benefits of Pique Tea
Good for your gut!
Your gut contains over 100 trillion bacteria. Well, tea is really high in plant compounds called polyphenols. Polyphenols are a prebiotic-type substance that feed healthy gut bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria. Having a healthy balance of gut flora supports every aspect of your health including digestion, weight loss, and immune function. Pique tea has 12x more polyphenols than other teas (verified by 3rd party testing). It also has been screened for toxins like heavy metals (unfortunately common in lower quality teas), mold and other toxins.
May help reduce cravings!
Catechins are a flavanoid and antioxidant. Catechins in tea can help with regulating the hunger hormone ghrelin and reduce hunger cravings.
Tea is high in L-theanine, an amino acid that is a precursor to GABA. GABA is a brain chemical that helps you handle stress better, reduce feelings of anxiety, and sleep well.
So you may want to give Pique tea a try. I’m also a big fan of high quality teas that come in a regular bag (like Gaia, Traditional Medicinals, and Numi). Besides the actual ingredients which can yield numerous health benefits like supporting good digestion, helping regulate the stress response, and supporting detoxification, there’s something to be said for the ritual of pausing and enjoying a cup of tea. Taking that daily pause is something every single one of us can benefit from.
Until next time, I’m wishing you unstoppable health!
