Mental Health Tea Tip Thursday!
Yes, I just made this up because that’s what I do. But I’m giving you some easy health tips to incorporate into your lifestyle to keep you living your best life!
A cup of thyme tea has a lot more to offer than its pleasant taste; thymol, one of the volatile oils in thyme, is a potent antioxidant. According to The World's Healthiest Foods, thymol may help to increase omega-3 fatty acids, or healthy fats, in brain cells. In a clinical study conducted by K.A. Youdim and colleagues and published in the April 19, 1999 issue of "Biochemical and Biophysical Research," researchers found that thyme oil helped to protect against age-related changes in the brain cells of rats. Studies are ongoing to determine whether thyme can help prevent Alzheimer's disease.
Just put some thyme springs with lemon slices in a cup. Add boiling water and to help fight against cold and flu, add a tablespoon of Elderberry Honey that I showed you how to make in my Herbal Chef Lifestyle FB live group!
