Does Buddhist Monks Herbal Tea Work? How to prepare it and what are the ingredients. Here's everything you need to know.
The herbal tea of Buddhist monks is considered by some to be a miraculous potion that can help you lose weight and keep you healthy . In reality, there are no studies that certify its properties and that validate what is said about it. Of course, the drink is certainly beneficial, if only for its purifying properties , but it must still be included in an adequate diet.
How to prepare the herbal tea recipe of Buddhist monks
- Prepare the ingredients and pour them into a cup or special herbal teapot.
- Then cover with boiling water and leave to infuse, preferably covered, for 15 minutes.
- Filter everything and consume at the moment, sweetening to taste.
The herbal tea of the monks should be consumed as soon as it is made to prevent the nutrients from being dispersed. The taste is already very pleasant in itself however you can sweeten it with honey, maple syrup or sugar.
Herbal tea of Buddhist monks: what it contains
To understand what prompted most to attribute it "miraculous" properties, we need to take a look at the ingredients that make it up and their properties. Among the main ingredients is green tea to which antioxidant and slimming properties are attributed. In fact, it seems that methylxanthines are able to promote weight loss.
Even tulsi , known as sacred or holy basil, has numerous properties including, the only one ascertained by studies, that of reducing the level of blood sugar. However, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, digestive and antibacterial properties are ascribed to it.
Powdered aloe vera juice is another ingredient in the blend. This too has been the subject of numerous studies with encouraging but still more limited results than the common belief. It seems to be a help for its laxative and antiviral properties.
On the other hand, cornflower has anti-inflammatory and decongestant properties, while lemongrass is an anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antispasmodic. In the herbal tea of the Tibetan monks there are also aromatic herbs such as rosemary and mint which contribute to the correct functioning of the gastrointestinal system.
Herbal tea from Buddhist monks: does it work?
To date, no study has been able to confirm or deny the properties of this herbal tea. Although some ingredients, taken individually, are actually beneficial, the situation becomes more complicated when it comes to infusion . It is difficult to determine in what percentage the properties of the ingredients are transferred to the stable fluid and consequently how they affect health.
