5. In-Fusion tea
Teas inspired by Ayurveda, one of the most ancient systems of wellness and healing. Wellness and good health is thought to be controlled by a balance of the mind, body and spirit. Each of these is called a Dosha, also known as a life force. Each life force and each person is a combination of 5 elements forming the Doshas. These elements are space, air, fire, water and earth. Each person has their own personal measure of each Dosha. Therefore it is important to know which Dosha is most influential in each individual. In Ayurveda, a person’s ill-health may be a disharmony of the mind, body and spirit combining one or more of the elemental groups. Try their teas to help balance yours.
Kefir is a fermented milk drink, cultured from kefir grains originating in eastern Europe. It’s a rich source of calcium, protein and B-vitamins and incredibly high in nutrients and probiotics which are super beneficial for digestion and gut health. Kefir is in fact a more powerful probiotic than yogurt, has potent antibacterial properties and has been proven to improve bone health and lower the risk of osteoporosis and it’s also been known to help with a variety of digestive diseases.
Even though this kefir is fermented in cow’s milk, it is generally well tolerated by people who are lactose intolerant due to the good bacteria breaking down the lactose in the milk. It has a delicious fizzy taste and having a little bit before each meal is the perfect way to maintain a strong healthy digestive system.
