A few months back, we launched our Natural Wellness Yaupon Blend with the intention of giving our customers a blend which is more focused on health and wellness. We received a lot of requests for ingredients which are adaptogenic, meaning they can act to reduce stress of all kinds on the body. Though more research is needed, many proponents of these herbs and botanicals believe they do just that. Our Natural Wellness has six highly functional ingredients:

Yaupon: Our specialty and the plant all of our teas are made from primarily, Yaupon is a Florida-native small tree or shrub, and the only native plant species in the United States which contains caffeine. Yaupon also contains theobromine, theophylline, and loads of antioxidants. But, unlike tea, it doesn't contain much tannin so it isn't bitter. 

Astragalus: Astragulus is native to Asia is has been used in traditional herbal medicine for centuries.  It’s purported to enhance the immune system and reduce inflammation. It’s also used to help treat heart conditions, kidney disease and more.

Elderberry: Elderberries are trees from the genus Sambucus. They grow in many parts of the world, but most commercial Elderberries come from Europe. Elderberries are a low-calorie food packed with vitamin C, dietary fiber and antioxidants in the form phenolic acids, flavonols and anthocyanins. In folk medicine, Elderberries have been used to treat various illnesses, including the common cold and influenza. 

Echinacea: Echinacea, (also known as Purple Coneflower), has been used as a medicine by Native Americans for ages. Echinacea is used as a dietary supplement for the common cold and other infections, based on the idea that it might stimulate the immune system to more effectively fight infection. Echinacea preparations have been used topically (applied to the skin) for wounds and skin problems. The NIH is currently funding research to identify the active constituents in echinacea and to study the effects on the human immune system of substances in bacteria that live within echinacea plants.

Ginger Root: Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional/alternative medicine. It has been used to help digestion, reduce nausea and help fight the flu and common cold, to name a few. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger, responsible for much of its medicinal properties. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

Peppermint: Peppermint oil has been shown to relax muscles in your digestive system and improve various digestive symptoms. Therefore, peppermint tea may provide similar benefits. But in any case, it's just delicious!

We hope you enjoy our Natural Wellness Yaupon Blend, and we're wishing you health and wellness in your daily life! - Bryon
