Honeybush, Cyclopia intermedia, South Africa
Honeybush is a local plant from the area of Cape of Good Hope, in South Africa; it’s known as an alternative to tea, it’s caffeine-free and it has a peculiar and sophisticated taste reminiscent of honey. Honeybush contains a low percentage of tannins but it’s rich in flavonoids and and pinitols (a modified sugar which acts as an anti-diabetic agent and has insulin-like properties); it’s also known to be an expectorant agent and to relieve the symptoms of menopause.
Rooibos, Aspalathus linearis, South Africa
Aspalathus linearis, also known as Rooibos o Red Tea, is a plant of the African tradition, native to the Southern area of the continent. In infusion (between 3 and 5 minutes) it releases a slight nutty taste and a bright red colour; the plant is naturally caffeine free and it’s high in vitamin C and several minerals like Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Iron, Fluorine and Phosphorus. It stands out for its antioxidant property, often associated with LDL reductions and HDL increases (cholesterol reduction and blood pressure control).
Cinnamon, Cinnamomi ceylon, Sri Lanka
Queen of spices, cinnamon is a plant used in culinary traditions around the world for ages; likewise its therapeutic benefits have always been known and appreciated, above all in Oriental medicine. Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial par excellence, cinnamon in a great help in reducing cholesterol and hypertension and it’s associated with increase in insulin sensitivity: it supports and increases sugar metabolism; recent studies have been confirming its positive effects on Alzheimer and Parkinson’s symptoms).
Cocoa, Theobroma cacao, South America
– Beans and peels
Cocoa is obtained from dried beans of a plant native to the Amazon Basin and it’s always been appreciated as an exquisite food all over the world. Its healthy and beneficial properties are well-known and associated with a high content of biophenols (which are eventually lost and modified through the cocoa production process). Infused peels have a strong bitter and pungent flavour; they also release a good polyphenol concentration providing a positive effect on the circulatory system and mood.
Ginkgo, Ginkgo biloba, China
Ginkgo is a prehistoric plant (it dates back until 250 millions years ago) appreciated for its healthy and beneficial properties; its therapeutic and nutritional uses bloom in ancient traditional Chinese medicine and at the beginning of “Western” phytotherapy (herbal medicine). When infused, its leaves release low ginkgolides concentrations which have natural invigorating and antioxidant effects with a light digestive action. Ginkgolide B is the main character here: it acts on microcirculation and it has a strong antioxidant action.
Hypericum (St. John’s wort), Hypericum perforatum, Poland
Hypericum, or St. John’s wort, is a very common plant in phytotherapic tradition. Natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, it contains high concentrations of two main active principles, hypericin and hyperforin. These principles are associated with Serotonin and Dopamine receptors (especially in the reuptake process of these neurotransmitters) and with a strong antidepressant action. Dehydrated Gingko in infusion and in low concentrations contributes to a good mood and microcirculation.
Red Poppy, Rhoeados papaveris, Marocco
Red poppy is one of the main herbs in phytotherapy and it’s always been used for its therapeutic properties. In addition to a high content of essential minerals and mucilages, red poppy contains several alkaloids (the most famous and appreciated are Rhodein, Isorhodeine and Papaverine) with multiple antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, astringent and antispasmodic properties. When infused, red poppy contributes to a good mood and digestion.
Siberian Ginseng, Eleutherococcus senticosus, China
Siberian Ginseng is a tree native to Asia. Its medicinal and nutritional use has ancient origins; the plant owes its properties to the eleutheroside glycosides family (primarily eleutheroside A and D). These molecules have a strong anti-stress effect on the immune system with energizer, invigorating and aphrodisiac properties largely told in literature and appreciated all over the world.
