June 2013 Favorites!

June 2013 Favorites

This was a great month for favorites, inasmuch as I had a really difficult time narrowing it down to these {and there was no way possible that I could cut it down to ten}. Some of the items here have been in my collection for a while, but I am rediscovering how much I love them {and wondering how I forgot about them in the first place}, others are new to me {thanks to the lovely companies that I have the pleasure of working with}, and once again I'm left to wonder how I ever did without them. So without further ado, here are my favorites for the month of June...

Tea Time is Golden with Alvita Turmeric Root Tea

In my new health/fitness kick, one of the habits that I've developed is drinking tea daily. Not only do I find it relaxing, depending on the tea, it also comes with certain health benefits. I always like to have a variety of different teas on hand, and one of the latest I've been trying is this Organic Turmeric Root Tea from Alvita {which I received in order to review}. 

As one of the oldest single-herb tea brands in the United States, Alvita understands that herbs are gifts from the earth and takes this stewardship seriously by offering carefully harvested teas in earth-friendly packaging. Hand-illustrations adorn boxes made using 100% recycled paperboard and the English, pillow-style tea bags are oxygen bleached, not chlorine treated. Alvita chooses only the highest quality organic, wild-crafted or cultivated botanicals. Each tea is labeled with individualized preparation instructions to provide the best Mother Nature has to offer.

Turmeric Root is a commonly used herb, most widely known for adding the bright yellow color to mustards and curry. Turmeric contains a substance known as curcumin, which acts as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory. Curcumin appears to stimulate the production of bile by the gallbladder. Bile is necessary for your body to digest fats; a lack of adequate bile production can lead to indigestion, so drinking Turmeric tea can help with indigestion and associated symptoms like gas and abdominal bloating. 

The tea has a very mild taste and is quite unique in appearance because of its golden color. It pairs well with honey as a sweetener (if that's your thing). And I won't go into details, but I can personally attest to the relief consumption of the tea can provide when experiencing digestional discomfort. What's your favorite brand a flavor of tea? What benefits have you noticed from drinking tea regularly? My inquiring mind wants to know! Leave a comment below and let me know what you think! Until next time...
