Does Drinking Tea Help Fight Off Sickness?

We have probably all been there sometime this winter - sore throat, sneezing, runny nose, the works. It is not fun, but sickness seems to be running rampant this winter. Can you protect yourself? Can you feel better faster? And what does tea have to do with all of this? First off, check out Top 12 Tips For Staying Healthy Through Flu Season.

The key with drinking tea to fight sickness is to pick teas with high quality ingredients that are shown to fight off illness and get you feeling better sooner rather than later.
Pukka is a brand of organic herbal tea that I have been using a LOT of this winter. Not only is a steaming cup of tea very soothing when you’re stuck in bed with the sniffles, but I have found that several of their teas have helped me knock my symptoms out quickly. 
 Lemon, Ginger, and Manuka Honey
 Elderberry and Echinacea
Three Ginger

Each tea is soothing, full of flu fighting ingredients that work to boost your immune system, and taste great! I have had great success with them, and I make sure I always have some on hand in case I start to feel that tickle in my throat.

I also like to support my immune system with tea from Choice Organic Teas, like their Breathing Space or Throat Cozy, which can help maintain healthy airways or soothe your throat. Lemon Lavender Mint, Ginger, and Chamomile.

Two of the things that compromise my immune system most are stress and lack of sleep. To help with these things, I rely a lot on Choice Lemon Lavendar Mint and Choice Chamomile teas. Not only are they delicious, but they really do relax my body and allow my immune system to work the way it should!

So, does drinking tea help fight off sickness? In my experience, it absolutely does! Tea is one of the important parts of my daily routine, especially during cold and flu season. What do you think?

  1. I love any type of tea. I drink at least a few cups a day. The last cold that I had, I made sure to have some herbal teas. I did get over it quickly.
