Aside from the obvious delicious and tasty benefits, this blend is packed with health-boosting organic superfoods sourced from India. All of the spices in this blend are natively grown and sourced from 8 organic, multi-generational, Farming Cooperatives in India. Cheers to that!
IT’S DECAF + REFINED SUGAR-FREE
Have you ever wondered why some of your friends can have 3 coffees for breakfast, and an espresso after dinner, whereas you can’t sleep if you have a small double double at 10am? While there are a few factors, 90% of caffeine side effects come from your genetics. On top of the jitters and up-all-night insomnia, too much caffeine can interfere with vitamin absorption, causing digestive upset and overstimulating your nervous system. That’s why our Oat Milk Chai is made with decaf black tea!
Refined sugar in drinks like tea and coffee pose even more health risk than eating sugar. When we drink sugar, it spikes our blood sugar levels much faster than if we were to eat a sweet treat, which is much harder on our body. One of the major sources of daily sugar intake is from beverages like tea and coffee, so as always, it was important to us that we let you control your sweetness by adding your own natural sugars (think maple syrup, honey or agave) – or not, you do you!
IT CONTAINS THE KEY TO A HAPPY GUT
Oatmeal just got a lot cuter. Oats are packed with beta glucan, B vitamins and creamy goodness. Beta glucan is a soluble fiber (the key to a happy gut), which forms into a jelly-like consistency in the intestines, biding cholesterol, slowing cholesterol absorption, feeding friendly gut bacteria and supporting your immune system. Oat milk is also a good source of B vitamins, which are good for mood, energy regulation and ultra-important for vegan diets. The oh so creamy goodness is just a bonus!
IT'S PACKED WITH ANTIOXIDANT RICH INGREDIENTS
Fennel (aka an antioxidant powerhouse) is normally found in soups and salads, but don’t worry, it tastes just fine in this Chai. Fennel is a high source of polyphenols that benefit your entire health, like your brain & heart health! Fennel also has a hidden superpower - it may increase prolactin, the hormone that increases breast milk production in lactating mamas! The studies aren’t conclusive just yet, but it is commonly advised to breastfeeding women. But don’t forget to always talk to your doctor or health care professional if you are pregnant or breastfeeding about your diet, because everyone is different.
ITS SECRET INGREDIENT IS FAMOUS FOR NATURALLY PROTECTING THE LIVER
The daisy’s second-cousin, from the Mediterranean. Historically, milk thistle has been used to naturally protect the liver against damage. Milk thistle may help lower “bad” cholesterol, which helps to prevent heart disease. Like the name implies, milk thistle has also been used for centuries to increase milk production in lactating mamas! However, more research needs to be done to confirm the effects. Like always, talk to your doctor before adding anything new to your diet, especially if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
