7 Best Teas to Start Off Your Morning
If you want to start your morning off right, start them with a cup of marvelous, all-natural tea!
If you aren’t having a soothing yet powerful cup of Flat Belly Tea each morning there are some alternatives that provide various benefits as well… I will cover some of the benefits the various others teas offer and we can see how they stack up.
It may sound silly, but the truth is that a good cup of tea can do wonders to start your day off right. You can sharpen your mind, improve digestive function, kick off your metabolism, decrease inflammation, and energize your body for a busy day
Let’s take a look at the top teas to start off your morning right.
Green tea gives you a little caffeine boost (around 25 to 50% of what you’d get from a cup of coffee) that will give you a shot of energy while still taking it easy on your nervous system. You won’t have to worry about jangling nerves or jittery hands thanks to the lower caffeine content—as well as the relaxing compound theanine, which helps to diminish anxiety and promote calm.
Green tea also gives your metabolism a boost and helps to specifically target fat to burn for energy. It’s also amazing for your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
Two cups of green tea in the morning is the best way to start your day off right!
Bonus: Matcha Green Tea – The higher antioxidant levels of matcha green tea makes it an absolutely amazing health booster. There’s a slightly higher dose of caffeine than regular green tea, but also more overall health benefits.
Ginger tea is one of the best things you can drink to start off your day right! Not only does it help to alleviate stomach problems, but it’s an amazing digestion booster that will also work as a painkiller and an anti-inflammatory agent. If you’re achy, bloated, cramping, or sore, you’ll find that ginger tea works wonders.
Expectant mothers will find that ginger tea helps to alleviate morning sickness, and anyone wrestling with a bit of nausea will love the anti-nausea effects of ginger tea. The anti-inflammatory properties can help to reduce swelling in your joints and organs, and you’ll find you digest your breakfast more effectively thanks to ginger’s digestive properties.
If you need a jolt of caffeine in the morning but can’t have coffee, Yerba mate is the way to go!
Made in South America, Yerba mate is rich in antioxidants, contains small doses of all the essential amino acids your body needs, and has been proven to boost your metabolism and increase fat-burning. Yerba mate also contains a pretty hefty dose of caffeine—more, in fact, than you’d get in a single cup of coffee—but it’s balanced out with theanine to prevent jitters.
Unlike regular tea, you don’t just have one cup and you’re done—instead, you fill a specially-crafted mate gourd with the tea leaves, and keep adding in more water (or, in my case, peppermint tea) to enjoy the mate for hours at a time.
Of course chamomile is on this list!
Chamomile is a relaxing tea, one that will help to reduce stress, calm anxieties, and stop your mind from spinning with all the work you’ve got to do today. While most people drink it at night to help them sleep, it’s an amazing way to start your day off relaxed and calm. It’s got no caffeine to give you the jitters, but will make sure you’re breathing easy and at peace as you head off to work.
Plus, it’s amazing for your digestive tract, and it will help your stomach and intestines work better all day long!
Peppermint tea is one of those all-around amazing teas that can work for anyone.
First off, it boosts your digestion, helping your digestive system work more efficiently while also reducing indigestion and stomach upset. The minty flavor of the tea is known to shut down your appetite, which makes it perfect if you’re trying to eat a light breakfast before a busy day of work.
Peppermint tea can freshen up your breath, relieve headaches, fight bacterial infections, and prevent clogged sinuses. It’s perfect for your daily dose of freshness you need!
Cinnamon tea is a truly amazing beverage!
It’s loaded with antioxidants, which makes it useful for fighting off chronic inflammation and preventing free radical damage in your body. It’s a known anti-inflammatory that can improve cardiovascular function, regulate blood sugar levels, and encourage weight loss. It’s also a known anti-fungal and anti-bacterial tea, and can help to encourage the formation of collagen for healthy skin.
For women, cinnamon tea is a particularly helpful solution for dealing with cramps and menstrual bleeding. It can even deal with the nausea and vomiting common to very severe periods.
Flat Belly Tea
