Where are my fellow asthmatics at, please put your inhalers in the air! Tea is probably not your first thought when thinking about asthmatic relief; however, there is a tea that can do wonders for us asthmatics. Rooibos tea, yes you read that right the red leaf plant is a natural relief for asthmatics. For those of you who aren’t asthmatic rooibos tea still packs a bunch of benefits you can check out on The Amazing Tea Company website including allergy relief.
You may be wondering how exactly rooibos tea can aid in asthma relief and how factual these claims are. Lucky for you, I have personally tested this claim during a time of need. First the facts, rooibos tea is rich in flavonoids one in particular chrysoeriol that produces the same effect of relaxing, opening, and dilating airways as common asthma and allergy medicines. While wheezing or experiencing tightness in the chest rooibos is able to relax those muscles within just a few moments of drinking a cup.
Like most asthmatics, I am prone to a flare-up or minor attack during certain times of the year and setting. One summer I was visiting a friend for a week who has two dogs, my allergies started to cause my asthma to flare up and I started to feel tightness in my chest along with wheezing. I did not have any inhalers on hand but happened to have brought some tea with me since tea was a regular part of my daily routine (Main St. Nor’leans). I had obviously heard of rooibos aiding in asthma but never tested it myself, I decided to make a cup and BAM just like that only about halfway through the tea my wheezing had subsided and nostrils began to unclog!
So my fellow asthmatics hit The Amazing Tea Company website and get you some rooibos, you can go classic or there are plenty of tasty flavour options that still pack the benefits! The miracle tea is also caffeine free making it a safe choice to share with kids and for pregnant women. Grab a cup, take a deep breath, and enjoy the fresh air.
