Healthy Hollywood: Wellness Wednesday – Sip To Your Health!

Feeling stressed? Fatigued? Bloated? Whatever your ailment, a cup of tea might be your remedy! Celebrities like Lady Gaga, Lindsay Lohan, and Gwyneth Paltrow are often spotted out on the town with their tea in tow.

While brewing a cup of tea is nothing new, people are discovering all kinds of medicinal benefit. “Many teas contain antioxidants that are believed to help against free radicals that can contribute to cancer, heart disease, diabetes and clogged arteries. Studies have also shown that tea can help encourage weight loss and lower cholesterol,” reveals Linda Appel Lipsius, co-founder and CEO of Teatulia.

Teatulia is an organic line of 10 different teas. Teatulia offers up such brews as peppermint herbal to ginger herbal to green and more traditional black tea. “Although tea is often heralded for bringing about mental alertness, they are often drank as part of a relaxation ritual. Even the caffeinated ones have less caffeine than coffee,” points out Linda.
