Tea For Stress: Know The Herbs that Heal

Feb 9th, 2012

Have you ever had the feeling like the whole world has fallen onto your shoulders? That feeling of being under a lot pressure and being attacked by a handful of work might cause you to fall into stress. Stress is something one should avoid; it can cost you more than you might think. If you think you’re under stress, then maybe you should try something other than stress relieving medication. Having tea for stress is one of the greatest (and yummiest) ways to get rid of stress.

 

Tea for StressIt is a known fact that the consumption of tea has antioxidants ten times better than those that vegetables and fruits can give. Why do some people choose tea for stress relief and to get rid of anxiety? A good list of specific tea for stress can help you get rid of anxiety and calm you down. There’s something in tea that regains your tranquility and this is called L-theanine. This has the ability to calm you. Known as a amino acid, L-theanine as studies show has the ability to cross through the barrier of the blood-brain and is also a remedy for stress and anxiety.

 

Some people wouldn’t think as tea for stress relieving purposes, but because tea has the L-theanin compound this is one reason why someone can meditate fully; even if you do have caffeine in your tea. This is also one of the reasons as to why tea can make you more alert and this can calm you down, both of these traits are perfect for when you decide to meditate.

 

Here are the following teas for stress:

Passionflower

Shown in studies, the passionflower extract has the ability to calm you down because it increases the number of the chemical in your brain known as gamma-amino butyric acid or also known as GABA. Found in one magazine for women and according to research; if one consumes passionflower extract regularly it helps and acts as a anti-anxiety. One has to take this tea regularly so you can feel its effects. It might take weeks before the effects of the passionflower can be felt to get rid of anxiety and is great for stress relief.

 

Chamomile

As demonstrated in a study, the everyday usage of chamomile can help people release negative energy which relieves someone from their anxiety and acts as a perfect cup for stress relief. The recommendation into healing and getting rid of your anxiety and stress is by taking at least 2 cups of tea every day. Also, you can have the essential oil of chamomile. You can take these and drop the oil on the soles of your feet a couple of times a day.

 

It has been known for years that tea has the power to heal. This has been consumed by wise men from the past and it has proven to be very effective to keep one healthy, since tea has anti-oxidants that can help you stay healthy. When you have tea for stress relief, you don’t need anything else. No other medication can be as delicious as tea itself.

  1. It is my first time to know that Passionflower is helpful to overcome stress. It seems that it works as effective as other stress relief herbs. I will put it in my list. Thank you so much for this helpful post.

  2. It’s a little bit funny that we have passionflowers in our garden and I’m not even aware that they are really helpful in relieving stress. I’m glad you’ve shared this post. It’s really helpful for me. Once again, thank you.

    My all time favorite tea is chamomile. I used to drink a lot more green tea, but I found that the amount of caffeine in the green tea really started to bother me. When I switched to chamomile, it was like the whole world slowed down.

    I have never had passionflower tea though, but it sounds really good. Maybe I will get some of that next time.

    Thank you for a nice, and easy to understand list. I really appreciate the style you write in.

  5. I recently listened to a podcast regarding the benefits of drinking tea, so you have no need to convince me :) One of the great things about tea is that it provides a slow ‘injection’ of caffeine to our bodies, and has a gentle sloping letdown, whereas coffee provides more of a ‘spike’ of caffiene, followed by a crash.

    It’s encouraging to read about the level of antioxidants in tea as well: 10 times those of fruits and vegetables? It’s hard to believe, but even if it provides just as many, I’ll be drinking tea more often!

    I think the best stress-releasing tea is the thé verde, the green tea. It is really relaxing to drink a cup of it, as I do everyday!

  7. Drinking herb tea for stress is so much better than taking medication!! And healthier than overeating or gambling and some of the other ways people use to handle stress.

    Thank you for the informative article, Edyta.

  8. Hi Edyta,
    I’m a coffee drinker but I keep reading about the benefits of drinking tea, especially green tea.
    My mom is a tea drinker and she has a large collection. I’ll ask her for some to try.
    I like the good effects of drinking tea and I might gradually switch from coffee to tea.
    Thanks for sharing this info.

  9. I used to be a coffee drinker, then discovered that caffeine and I didn’t get along. I love the taste of coffee, so every once in a while I will have a decaf.

    But tea is definitely my preferred choice. Just finished my cup of camomile before going to sleep! However the oil in my shoe sounds like an excellent option

    I haven’t tried passionflower, will have to get some of that!

    Hi Edyta,
    I didn’t know that tea works as a stress reliever, even thought I drink very rarely (if ever) tea I will probably have to think again about tea since I am not the calmer guy in the world!
