Whats the best tea to drink for stress? πŸƒ

I drink green tea in the mornings and usually have some chamomile at night. I also like kava, but Im not sure if that's really tea exactly. Is there any one tea specifically best for stress reduction? I always love learning about new teas!! :)

Teas are a wonderful way to reduce stress. Calming herbs can help settle your nervous system and the simple act of drinking a warm cup of tea can bring you back into a peaceful state. When I'm feeling stressed, my favourite teas to drink are passionflower, chamomile, skullcap, holy basil and/or lavender. In fact, I'm drinking a nice warm mug of holy basil and rose petal tea as I type this :)

Herbal Adaptogens like Ashwagandha, Rhodiola and Ginseng can also help reduce the negative effects of chronic stress. Make sure you speak with a healthcare provider to find the right herbal formula for you!

Coaching is a growth-promoting relationship, which elicits motivation, increases the capacity to change, and facilitates a change process through visioning, goal setting, and accountability.

Hi herecomesthesun iffequ16798!

I love tea! My favorite teas are from Maharishi Ayurveda. I love their "Worry Free Tea" as well as their "Vata tea" both are stress reducing! Use my link: https://www.mapi.com/products/herbal-beverages/ayurvedic-teas/worry-free-tea.html?partner=KrystleLiggins-HP#

There "Worry Free" Supplements are awesome too!

I also enjoy chamomile an hour before bed.

Let me help you get unstuck and take action on your goals using habit building, mindfulness, and ancestral health principles.

If you're looking for more stress-relieving tea options, you can search for "adaptogenic herbs". This includes kava, ginseng, astragalus, ashwagandha, tulsi, eleuthero and many others. They have been shown to lower cortisol (stress hormone). I would just suggest to experiment with small amounts; some of these herbs can have mild negative side effects (headaches, nausea). Sounds like you can tolerate kava, which is great.
