Better than Green Tea
Spring has sprung here at Suede Hills Organic Farm, most evidently shown by the amount of dandelions spreading across our lawn! Our Stevia beds have been tilled by our hard workers and are pretty much ready to be planted in! We will still have a good month or two before the plants are ready to go into the ground though. The trees are starting to grow their leaves, even the olive trees are beginning to leaf out!
With the weather unpredictable during spring many people like to have tea when it gets a little chilly after those spring rains. If you haven’t tried Olive Leaf Tea you should. It’s delicious, has a mild taste to it. However Olive Leaf Tea has much more going for it than just flavour!
Did you know Olive Leaf Tea has ten times more antioxidants than Green Tea? It’s true! Oleuropein, found in olive leaf, is amazing and can work wonders!
Oleuropein has been found to help:
- combat viruses, inhibiting them from replicating
- lower cholesterol
- lower blood pressure (by expanding the blood vessel)
- keep away fungus
- keep away bacteria
- keep away viruses
- prevent cold sores and herpes
- maintain a strong and balanced immune system
- prevent shingles
- fight the common cold and flu bugs
- reduce fevers
- inhibit and destroy yeast
If you have found that you’ve been sick recently or that you could use some of these health benefits, try some Olive Leaf Tea for yourself!
