Persimmon has been used traditionally for thousands of years in Chinese medicine, including in the treatment of eczema. It can support breakouts and is rich in immune-boosting vitamin C, which lowers inflammation and fights free radicals. It also contains vitamin A, which supports immune function and healthy vision and manganese. Persimmons can also help lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels and are antioxidant-rich, which helps our body fight oxidative stress, can lower inflammation and decrease the risk of certain diseases.
Carrots might seem like an interesting addition to this tea, but their alchemy helps enhance the flavor of persimmon in this blend, symbiotically. Carrots also contain high levels of beta carotene, which supports healthy eyesight. Beta carotene can also help repair our skin tissues and protect against harmful sun rays. They are also a great source of potassium, which can help keep skin hydrated, supple and youthful.
Lemongrass is an incredible, invigorating herb that is antiviral, antibacterial, and bolsters the immune system. It also contains vitamin C and antioxidants. When used topically, it can tone and minimize pores as well as helping to prevent breakouts and acne.
Apple and Mango both support healthy digestion - and digestive health equates to inner health and external beauty! Apples contain pectin which is a prebiotic that helps the body produce gut-boosting probiotics. You’ve no doubt heard the phrase, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” but an apple a day actually keeps digestion happy! Mangoes are also rich in beautifying beta carotene and prebiotics, which help break down proteins in the digestive tract.
