Benefits Of Chai


Chai Tea has been held in great esteem in India for centuries coming from Ayurvedic medicine, one of the oldest traditional medical healthcare systems.

The benefits of Chai are due to its powerful blend of health promoting herbs & spices. PUKKA PURE Pukka Chai contains the top 4 digestive herbs, namely: Cardamom, Cinnamon, Ginger and Cloves. In addition to improving the digestion, the spices enhance the immune system, have antibacterial properties and fights inflammation.

Cardamom is a wonderfully mineral-rich medicinal spice that contains antiseptic, antiviral, anti-oxidant and antispasmodic properties. Cardamom is excellent for the respiratory system and is a natural expectorant relieving congestion and mucus from the lungs and sinus passages. Cardamom aids digestion and eases flatulence, nausea, indigestion and cramping.

Ginger is known as one of the world’s oldest medicinal spices. Helpful in preventing colds, flu, motion sickness and vertigo as well as aiding in digestion and stomach flu, Ginger also contains powerful anti-inflammatory compounds named gingerols and is a potent painkiller especially for those who suffer from joint, muscle and nerve pain. Ginger has amazing immune-boosting properties and in ancient times was known to purify the body, mind and spirit.

Cinnamon has the highest anti-oxidant strength of all the food sources and is a great source of vitamins A and B-complex and minerals like chromium, iron, zinc and calcium. Cinnamon can help to prevent and shorten the length of flu as well as assisting digestion and ease diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and flatulence. It contains anti-clotting compounds which protect us against strokes and coronary artery disease. It is known to reduce inflammation in the body and has the amazing ability to stop yeast infections, menstrual cramps and candida. Memory boosting and improving cognitive function, just smelling this spice will instantly improve your focus and mental alertness.

Cloves have been used for centuries to assist with digestive and respiratory illnesses. Packed full of vitamins A, C, K and B-complex and well as minerals such as manganese, iron, selenium, potassium and magnesium, Cloves are helpful in healing the digestive tract and are great for relieving gas, constipation, bloating, nausea, muscle spasms, headaches and nerve pain.

PUKKA PURE Chai tea has a delicious flavour; perfect to drink hot or cold, as it also helps to regulate the body temperature, keeping it cool in summer, comfortably warm in winter. In India, where extremes of weather are experienced every year, spiced chai is frequently downed by the entire populace and is considered little short of a lifesaver.

Additionally, we are using whey protein, an entirely natural by-product of the cheese making process. Whey protein contains the full armoury of essential amino acids for sleek body definition, strong bones, and perfect teeth.

Pukka Pure Pukka Chai Tea has many health benefits, as one author puts it:

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”
