The Winter Solstice is upon us and so we begin the season when everything in nature goes into hibernation and retreats into itself. Winter is also associated with the water element. Like water we should go with the flow, but water also tends to freeze so we must be mindful to not get too rigid during this time of year. It is time for more reflection, sleeping more, meditating and taking time to replenish our selves. It is also time for us to change our seasonal kombucha. Our winter brew will warm you up, build your immunity and most importantly, it tastes amazing! Look for it on your favorite stores shelves starting this week,
It is CARDAMOM, HIBISCUS GINGER!
Cardamom is amazing. It is an expectorant, which opens up the respiratory air ways. Perfect during Winter. Other benefits of cardamom include: detoxifies the body of caffeine, cleanses kidneys and bladder and stimulates the digestive system. Cardamom also improves circulation to the lungs and is great for bronchitis.
Ginger is used for the circulatory and digestive systems, coughs, colds, aches and pains. It brings down inflammation and fights germs. On top of all of that, it makes us feel all warm and toasty inside!
Hibiscus is not only a beautiful flower that makes a beautiful tea, it also has high amounts of Vitamin C that helps fight colds. It strengthens the body’s immune system and helps lower high blood pressure while reducing stress.
So, this season eat plenty of warming foods, take time to reflect on yourself and your community. Exercise and slow down during the holidays. And drink a tall glass of Nessalla Kombucha. Your body will thank you for it!
