What teas help with anxiety?


by Team Appkettle May 22, 2019

If you’re feeling a bit low or that your mental health is becoming a bit of a struggle, the only thing some British people can think to do is put the kettle on. Believe it or not, but this can sometimes be the best thing for you.
Here we look at a few different teas and how they can help you alleviate any anxiety you might be feeling.

 

 

Peppermint Tea

With menthol (a natural muscle relaxant) and a distinct lack of caffeine, peppermint tea is a delicious beverage that helps the drinker de-stress and feel much calmer.

Unfortunately, peppermint tea is unsuitable for pregnant women, but it can help provide an anxiety-free night’s sleep.

 

Green tea

The drink for modern society, green tea contains caffeine but can help you feel alert and ‘switched on’ enough without the crash that follows.

As well as caffeine, a cup of green tea will also include anxiety-buster polyphenol.

 

Chamomile Tea

If sleeping is a problem, as well as anxiety, chamomile tea may be the solution, as it can help reduce stress and relax muscles.
