3 Ingredients In Bigelow Teas Help To Destress

Ingredients that help destress youEveryone feels overwhelmed from time to time. Whether it’s work, family, friends or life in general, stress can sneak up on us if we don’t take care of ourselves daily. Thankfully, a cup of tea can help us relax. 

How do we at Bigelow Tea find ways to stress less? Three ingredients, among many, may help us find our way. 

  1. Chamomile: Chamomile, a flowering plant in the daisy family, that has studies say anti-anxiety effects. With people drinking more than one million cups of chamomile herbal tea daily, it appears many have caught on to the calming properties of this plant. Bigelow Tea has a delightful variety of chamomile teas to satisfy any taste. 
  1. Lavender: Not only does lavender smell amazing, but it also helps reduce stress, according to a 2022 study. Additionally research published in a 2020 study found that drinking herbal tea with lavender might help diminish symptoms of anxiety and depression. Our Bigelow Benefits Sleep Lavender and Chamomile herbal tea deliciously combines flavor and soothing ingredients for an enjoyable cup of tea perfect for the end of the day. It also contains the third ingredient on our list. 
  1. Passionflower: This last ingredient can be found in Bigelow Benefits Stress Free Rose and Mint Herbal Tea. This beautiful flower, studies say, can be used as a way to reduce anxiety. According to scientists, passionflower amplifies levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which lowers the activity of certain neurons in your brain. This helps you feel calmer and more relaxed. 

If you want to add these ingredients to your teatime, Bigelow Tea has a collection of comforting teas with a variety of flavors, so you’re sure to find the perfect blend when taking a moment just for you.
