Let’s explore some of its ingredients!
Green Tea: Well-known for its incredible medicinal properties, green tea is a truly miraculous beverage bursting with health and vitality. Packed with antioxidants, it can lower the "bad" cholesterol (LDL) and promote cardiovascular health, improve physical and mental performance, and lower the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Besides infusing you with calm energy, focus and a sense of peace, our organic, biodynamically-grown green tea helps to detoxify the body, aid liver function, and release stubborn weight by giving your metabolism a healthy boost. Green tea imparts a greater experience of clarity for studying, brainstorming, and creating—anytime your mind needs to shine or your heart wants to speak!
Matcha: Unlike other varieties of green tea, matcha is consumed as a powder made from the whole leaf. Matcha is a wealth of antioxidants, an abundance of polyphenols, and L-Theanine--an amino acid that increases alpha wave activity in the brain, reduces anxiety, and increases focus. Matcha also alkalizes your body and protects it from free-radicals that can create inflammation and disease.
Moringa: Moringa is an incredible herb often called the “Miracle Tree”, and is revered for an extraordinary array of healing capabilities. It has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine to balance hormones, protect the liver, lower inflammation and balance blood sugar. High in antioxidants, vitamin A, C and E, moringa has also been linked to thyroid health and for thousands of years was used by the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans as a natural medicine. Moringa’s high vitamin levels make for a powerful sip that also supports beautiful skin, hair and nails.*
The entirety of the plant can be utilized for healing, and steeped fresh or ground into a fine powder, similar to matcha. It is high in protein and iron, so if you tend to run a little anemic, moringa can help balance your iron levels, while also strengthening your hair and nails. It protects skin cells from damage, contains hydrating elements to boost our skin and hair, helping to make aging a graceful and glorious process.
Moringa is also soothing on the stomach and gut lining, supports digestion, and helps to clear out and detoxify the intestines. It contains antibacterial, antimicrobial and antibiotic properties, and fights against bacterial disease as well. It contains calcium and phosphorus which helps keep bones healthy and strong and even helps treat depression, anxiety and fatigue! Our mental health is just as important to our bodily health’s wealth, and moringa truly nourishes both of these things.
This is just one amazing example of how nature creates beautiful natural medicine for us to thrive. Your ability to help manage your moods, your body and your being through tea is absolutely in your power. Happy Heart is a truly beautifying tonic inside and out, as well as nourishment for your vitamin levels and complete physiology.
Almonds: Almonds are an extraordinary nut, full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It’s also high in Vitamin E, which can help lower the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s and even cancer. Additionally, almonds can help balance blood sugar, keeping you satisfied and satiated, without running for an overload of sweets. We’ve included them in Happy Heart to round out the decadent flavor profile and give it that nutty note you’ll keep coming back for.
We can’t wait for you to experience our Happy Heart blend, and have no doubt it will bring you incredible joy in every cup.
