I was doing some research for an article and somehow wound my way down a rabbit hole, as I often do, and landed on this page.
As a scientist, I’m a natural skeptic. In a scientist, that’s a great quality. It’s also a bonus for you, because what I share here is factual and accurate to the best of my knowledge of current research. It’s always been my goal to be sure you can trust what I tell you. After all, I’m not telling you which knitting needle to buy; I’m sharing important wellness and nutrition information with you that can ultimately change your life. The goal, of course, is that the change is for the better. I take it seriously.
So, there I was on the Aloha site and I saw Beauty Tea and I thought, oh my Lord what is this nonsense? I had full intention of checking out their claims, pulling some research and doing a nice Ingredients Inside piece to share some truth about the ingredients.
But that’s not what happened. What happened was, I did my research, then I talked to the folks at Aloha, and I ended up trying the Beauty Tea (at my own expense, no freebies).
I also took advantage of their “try a free product” deal. You can try an Aloha Ultimate Tea Kit for FREE by clicking HERE. You will have to pay $2.50 in shipping, but otherwise, it’s free of charge.
Ma Petite and I loved it so much, we ordered more. We noticed a difference in our skin after drinking it daily.
I was so impressed, I started trying more Aloha products. Guess what? They’re all legit. I don’t do it often but I decided to partner up with the Aloha team as an affiliate. I love these products and I buy them (full price and all) for my own home. I believe in Beauty Tea so much I give it as gifts now!
So, of course, I want to tell you about it and let you know I found a great product that works. I’ll tell you more in detail about other products soon, but I had to get this info to you about Beauty Tea first. I love it!
In addition to being gluten-free and 100% organic, Aloha teas are also:
- Vegan certified
And of course, these tasty teas contain no artificial or so-called “natural” flavors, colors, or fake sugars to worry about.
As I said, I was doing research on ingredients, so I just carried on and looked into EVERY ingredient in the Beauty Tea. The following information is from my research, not from Aloha. I’ve included plenty of resource links for you, if you’re interested in where the information comes from.
Juniper Berry is researched for numerous positive effects on our health (liver cleansing, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties and its high antioxidant content). In terms of our skin, juniper berry encourages blood circulation just beneath the skin, keeping our largest organ (the one everyone sees!) well-oxygenated and glowing. All those other juniper berry perks are a bonus!
Green Rooibos Tea contains a unique antioxidant, Aspalathin, which is reported in research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry to be remarkably high in this tea. Aspalathin is aggressively researched in the medical field because of its known anti-inflammatory properties. So much so that it is considered a potential treatment for vascular disease. Any time we can reduce inflammation in the body, we feel, look and really are healthier.
Organic Hibiscus Flower are more than just another pretty blossom. One of my favorite natural food coloring agents, hibiscus is also known to be effective in maintaining blood pressure and cholesterol levels. When it comes to our beautiful skin, the polyphenolic acids, flavonoids, protocatechuic acid and anthocyanins in this powerhouse flower act like nature’s botox to tighten and brighten the skin. Hibiscus is also reported to make pores appear smaller, which is a huge benefit for folks like me! It also gives this tea that gorgeous deep pink color. :)
Rosehip is known as a natural source of vitamin C, which to me is an added bonus during cold and flu season, which also happens to be hot tea season at our house. :) In addition to vitamin C, rosehip is known for its high vitamin A content. If you’re not familiar with what vitamin A does for your skin, now’s the time to catch up! Vitamin A is retinol and its our skin’s best friend! There are numerous benefits to getting enough vitamin A into the diet such as enhanced collagen production and resiliency, its anti-aging effects and the ability for vitamin A to actually reverse skin damage. Basically, vitamin A means we look younger. I say, pass me that cup of tea!
Sea Buckthorn Berry may not be an herb you’ve heard much about, but I assure you the medical community is well aware of this plant’s ability to treat inflammatory diseases like arthritis and gout, to lower blood pressure and “bad” cholesterol, as well as to treat breathing disorders like asthma. But when it comes to Beauty Tea, this multi-tasking herb is included because research shows it slows the aging process. Slows. Aging. That’s because sea buckthorn is known to be loaded with antioxidants like vitamins A, B1, B12, C, E, K, and P; flavonoids, lycopene, carotenoids, and phytosterols. These are all reasons the medical research community considers this plant therapeutically important in so many health conditions.
Dandelion Root has long been used by herbalists to treat conditions like gallbladder issues and to detoxify the liver. It can have a mild diuretic (fluid releasing) effect and is thought to be anti-inflammatory. While it is less well researched than some other natural remedies, there is no doubt of the high antioxidant content of dandelion root, which makes it an ideal partner for our healthy skin.
And now you know why I was eager to try Beauty Tea. Once I did, I decided it would become a daily part of my wellness regime. I thought you might like to include it in your daily regime, too. If you do try it, let me know how you like it in the comments below.
Next time, I’ll tell you all about their protein powders and show you what I’m making with them! :)
