HOW TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HERBAL TEAS BENEFITS.

Herbal teas are one of the most drunk beverages in the world with 400 billion cups per year! Do you want to know herbal teas benefits and the best way to prepare a special tisane? So…Read the article below!

Herbal teas benefits.

Besides being pleasant, they can give a hand to the organism and can be the answer to your small daily ailments. In addition to plants that have healing virtues, herbal teas are composed of 90% of water, so they are a valid help for those who are following a diet. They do not contain caffeine, so they can be drunk throughout the day and are often a great ally for those who can not drink the 2 liters of water recommended per day.

Drinking herbal teas is the easiest way to enjoy the benefits of plants. You can consume them for the pleasure of enjoying them, to relax but also to share a moment with friends or with your husband the night before going to bed.

The art of making an excellent herbal tea recipe.

Preparing a herbal tea is not complicated and is affordable for everyone, but preparing an excellent herbal tea recipe is an art! The most important thing is to know how to use the right ingredients and the tools of the trade.

You need a kettle, a teapot, a strainer or a ball infuser and a cup! Never use metal to make an herbal tea! Tap water is fine if it does not contain too much limestone. If you prefer mineral water, choose a mineral-poor water with a neutral pH (around 7%).

Do not prepare the herbal tea too early and throw it away if you have not consumed it within 24 hours, unless the recipe specifies that you can keep it.

Respect both the dosage, the infusion times, and the duration of the treatment that you find written on the package or that told you the phytotherapy. If the infusion times range from 3 to 10 minutes, start with 3 minutes and, if the flavor does not seem too harsh, increase the infusion time. Remember: never increase the doses thinking of greater effectiveness of the plant, do not forget that plants are also called drugs!

Supermarket or herbalist’s shop?

The quality of the product you buy is of fundamental importance. What to think of the tea bags you find at the supermarket? If you don’t have time to go to the herbalist’s, then a green tea bag is fine. If you can, just get it from a health-food store. It is obvious that going to the herbalist’s shop and buying the plant in bulk is much better, because in this way you can prepare natural herbal teas.

Plant conservation.

Dry plants are kept away from light and heat. The best way to take advantage of herbal teas benefits is to buy them in bulk and leave them in the original envelope. So, when you arrive home, keep them in an airtight box, such as a glass container. Remember: after some time plants lose their active ingredients and especially their aroma and perfume, so if you decide to start drinking herbal teas again, try to remember if the green tea you have in the pantry dates back to 2 years ago and, if the answer is yes, throw it away and go back to the herbal shop!

Sugar or no sugar?!

Another piece of advice to make the most of herbal teas benefits? It is useless to drink 2 cups of green tea a day to fat loss if in each cup you put 2 tablespoons of sugar to sweeten! If the sour taste of a plant bothers you, you can use a spoonful of honey that is definitely less caloric than sugar and is the natural sweetener ideal for herbal teas. It also has soothing properties and thanks to its active ingredients calms heartburn. If you find the herbal tea too sour and can’t drink it, increase the amount of water and keep the same amount of plants.

Conditions of use and advice.

If you are suffering from a chronic infection or if you are taking medication, the opinion of your doctor is very important. Ask him/her if these plants can interfere with the medicines you take.

If you are pregnant, be very careful because some plants might bother the fetus.

CHILI PEPPER USE, PROPERTIES AND NUTRITIONAL VALUES.

You know all about this red plant? Don’t worry! Through this article we will discover its origin and distinguishing characteristics, how to use chili pepper, its properties and benefits, but also its contraindications. Following we will focus on one of its most famous characteristics, the spicy taste, and to finish a few fun facts!

Historical origin.

Chili pepper, in Latin Capsicum annuum, is an annual plant belonging to the family of Solanaceae, the same of potatoes, eggplants, tomatoes and tobacco. Native to the American continent, it was brought to Europe by Christopher Columbus, back from his second trip in the New World.

Characteristics of chili pepper.

The chilli has an erect stem, white flowers and elongated fruits that during the growth phase pass from green to yellow to bright red. The peculiarity of the fruit is the spiciness on the palate, characteristic given by the capsaicin, an alkaloid present inside it in varying concentrations depending on the species considered.

In addition to the spicy taste, capsaicin is a rubefacient substance, that is able to stimulate and increase blood flow. The typical spicy flavour makes chili an ideal spice in the kitchen to season and flavor our recipes. But being very rich in active ingredients, chili pepper use is also famous in topical preparations to counter arthritis and muscle pain.

Its fruit contains vitamins (C, E, K, B, A), mineral salts including calcium, copper and potassium, carotenoids, bioflavonoids and lecithin. In particular, chili is rich in vitamin C: 100 grams of this spicy fruit contain 229 milligrams against 50 of orange!

Beneficial properties.

Chili pepper use is helpful as natural remedy that stimulates blood circulation, counteracts the onset of bacteria, lowers cholesterol and activates metabolism.

The main benefits of chili are:

-improving blood circulation;

-promoting intestinal motility;

-reducing blood cholesterol;

-being antioxidant, antibacterial and antihistamine;

-preventing infections;

-being expectorant;

-stimulating the vitality of the tissues;

-activating the metabolism.

The chili pepper use is also advantageous because capsaicin stimulates some receptors, including those of the tongue, which make us feel the typical spicy flavour, as we will see, but also acts on those located at the level of brown adipose tissue, the so-called Bat. This tissue has the function of releasing fat in the form of heat. The intake of chili, in fact, makes us feel a sensation of heat, which does not correspond to a real rise in body temperature.

By activating the Bat receptors, capsaicin is able to release fat cells in the form of energy and temperature, instead of storing them as stocks…and not only. Capsaicin, in fact, is able to decrease the secretion of Grelin, a pancreatic hormone responsible for the hunger sensation. In this way, the appetite signal is weakened, and we are led to ingest less food.

Contraindications of chili pepper use.

Due to the numerous health properties, the consumption and in any case the excessive chili pepper use can be irritating for the gastric mucosa. Therefore, it is not recommended to use it in case of ulcer, gastroenteritis, cystitis, hepatitis, haemorrhoids. Moreover, children under 12 and pregnant women should limit their consumption.

The famous spicy taste.

As we have seen, the spicy taste is conferred to the chili from the capsaicin, substance that is found in all parts of the fruit. Contrary to what is commonly believed, capsaicin is not concentrated only in the seeds, but is mainly found in the so-called placenta, the white inner membrane to which the seeds are attached. It is also contained in discrete quantities in filaments and seeds. The placenta, as well as the seeds and their filaments, is located around the head of the fruit. For this reason, the tip of the chili is less spicy than the top.

There are more than 3 thousand varieties of chili, each with a different degree of spiciness. To measure its specific level, an empirical scale of value is used, the so-called Scoville scale, from the name of the chemist who invented it.

This scale goes from 0 to 10 degrees. The Scoville (SU) units measure the amount of capsaicin present inside the fruit and it is calculated on a scale ranging from 0, the value of the sweet pepper, up to 16 million of pure capsaicin!

Dampen the burning of chili pepper.

The spicy taste of chili pepper is given by the action of capsaicin on the receptors of the tongue, causing a burning sensation similar to what you get when you ingest a very hot food. It’s just that the chili sensation lasts longer.

To dampen the burning of chili pepper, it is useless to swallow a lot of water. Capsaicin is soluble in alcohol or fat, in particular casein. So, it can be useful to sip a glass of wine, eat cheese, a yogurt sauce or sip a little milk. That’s why in Mexican cuisine, that is very spicy, it is used to accompany meals with sour cream, as well as in Indian cuisine where dishes are accompanied by lassi, drink made from yogurt.

In any case, even a simple slice of bread is a very effective remedy against burning, as chewing the crumb removes capsaicin molecules from the tongue receptors.

Curiosities and fun facts.

Capsaicin represented the stratagem devised by Mother Nature to ensure survival and reproduction to the plant of chili. The typical spicy taste kept away the mammals, who would eat the seeds, destroying them entirely through digestion.

On the contrary, birds are immune to capsaicin because they do not feel its taste because they lack the receptors on which this substance acts. It is thanks to them that the pepper plant has managed to survive and reproduce. The seeds ingested by the birds, in fact, are dispersed during the meal or through the faeces.
