D’Amazonia Introduces Sleep Tea – The growing call for hot beverages that support our increasingly hectic lifestyles and healthier living aspirations has led to a new generation of functional teas that provide everything from an added energy boost to improved gut health.
Formulated by nutritionists, D’Amazonia produces natural functional tea inspired by the Amazon Rainforest. Their latest addition to their existing health & Fitness Tea and Digestive Tea stable is SleepTea. Their vision was to create a product that champions good health by supporting improved sleep. This is a tea packed with non-caffeinated ingredients that help calm the senses and reduce stress and anxiety, courtesy of ingredients with a trusted track record in tackling insomnia and restlessness: lavender, chamomile, rose petals, lemon balm oat flowering tops…
According to D’Amazonia co-founder, Marcella Tupinamba, ‘In Western Europe the focus for functional foods & drinks is pre-dominantly around increased vitality and energy, allowing consumers to eek the most out of every day. In South America, there’s a far greater emphasis on quality downtime as an all-important reset that enables us to make the most of the next day. The simple thinking behind Sleep Tea is a British made tea using only ‘real’ ingredients in biodegradable tea bags that support a new chapter regarding what constitutes good health.’
Sleep Tea Functional Benefits include:
Improve Sleep and Reduce Anxiety
Rose petals, lavender, chamomile, oat flowering tops, and lemon balm are used to treat anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness. They can also aid digestion and provide pain relief.
Boost Immune System
Cranberry, orange, cherry is low in calories and chock full of fibre, vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and other good-for-you ingredients. You’ll get vitamins C, A, and K. Each long-stemmed fruit delivers potassium, magnesium, and calcium too. They also bring antioxidants, like beta-carotene, and the essential nutrient choline.
Full of inflammation-fighting compounds, lemongrass and rosehip are extremely high in antioxidants and vitamin C. They soothe inflammation and encourage healthy skin.
Aid Weight Loss
Rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants – the help of apple, hibiscus, and lemon balm reduces blood sugar levels, blood pressure, body fat, neutralises free radicals and lowers cholesterol.
Having tried the tea now numerous times, via hot and cold brew I love the flavour. It is delicate on the palate, with mixed fruity hints. Each biodegradable teabag can be used twice, stretching out the life of your bag.
Being a very light sleeper, it has aided a restful sleep and I would certainly recommend this product.
D’Amazonia is a young mother & daughter enterprise driven by a poignant, better health agenda. Poliana (mother) was diagnosed with osteoporosis 8 years ago, which meant she needed to quickly embrace a healthier, more ‘exercise intense’ lifestyle to strengthen both her core and her bones.
Marcella & Poliana went to the gym together and themselves drank lots of coffee/Red Bull to boost their energy levels, however, such a flawed strategy was self-defeating as halfway through their fitness session they’d hit the wall, an inevitable consequence of a caffeine crash.
‘We realised,’ confirmed Marcela, ‘that we needed to embrace a more natural, herbal outlook and so in tandem with our nutritionist started concocting herbal blends in the kitchen. In no time we noticed that our overall energy levels had risen but without the uncomfortable bloating and downwards energy spikes that were an inevitable consequence of our old-school, caffeine-fuelled regimes.’
D’amazonia has partnered with One Tree Planted, to support the reforestation of the Amazon rainforest. Their philosophy is that nature gave them the incredible and powerful ingredients that go into every cup of D’Amazonia tea, to say ‘thank you’ they joined One Tree Planted – to give back to the rainforest, its communities, and our planet. And every time you buy a product, they plant a tree.
