Nourish your gut, one spiced sip at a time
In the intricate tapestry of our well-being there is an often overlooked powerhouse; our gut.
Going beyond digestive functions, the gut plays a wide range of roles, influencing everything from our immunity to our mental health.
Our gut, often referred to as the ‘second brain’, is a delicate ecosystem of trillions of microorganisms (the microbiome) playing a pivotal role in maintaining balance within the body.
The state of this delicate balance can either be a stronghold for health or a precursor to various ailments. And in our faced-paced, modern lives, maintaining this gut balance is increasingly challenging. Processed foods, antibiotics and stress can all disrupt the balance of our microbiome.
Achieving good gut health is a combination of mindful lifestyle choices, dietary habits and other factors that contribute to a balanced and thriving microbiome.
This is why Tiger Purrr’s chai is so much more than a delicious tea. The clean ingredients in our tea directly nurtures your gut health, especially if consumed as part of a tea ritual injecting the body with a moment of calmness.
Nurture your purrr
Tiger Purrr’s blend of ingredients include spices that promote a smoother, more nurturing digestive process. The following ingredients in Tiger Purrr’s unique blend creates a real digestive boost:
A versatile root which has been shown to ease indigestion and reduce nausea as it plays a role in relaxing the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract. Ginger has been shown to stimulate the production of enzymes which play a crucial role in breaking down food for more effective absorption.
A type of cinnamon obtained from the bark of the Cinnamomum cassia tree offers a range of gut healing benefits especially anti-inflammatory properties because it contains cinnamaldehyde, a compound that inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory enzymes. Cassia has antimicrobial properties against bacteria and fungi which helps to maintain the right balance of microorganisms in the gut.
A spice with a rich aromatic flavour has protective effects within the gut (including fighting against gastric ulcers). It may help maintain the integrity of the stomach lining and protect against damage from factors such as medications and stress. Further, the essential oils in cardamom (including terpinene and eugenol) can help alleviate gastrointestinal spasms providing relief from abdominal discomfort.
Derived from the dried flower beds of the syzygium aromaticum tree, this spice plays a beneficial role in achieving gut balance. Some studies have shown that clove may influence the composition of the gut microbiota. The clove oil has anti-parasitic effects helping to eliminate certain parasites that disrupt the balance of the delicate gut ecosystem.
