The Fab Five
There are five main herbs that are most commonly used in women's support teas, and they are as follows: Vitex Berry, Red Clover, Maca, Fenugreek, and Black Cohosh. We actually include fenugreek seed in our very own herbal tea blend, Mama Llama.
This is a tea made by a mom for moms. Mama Llama is a mixture of herbs that have traditionally been used during pregnancy and breastfeeding and is perfect to enjoy at any time of the day.
Scientists who have studied red clover have found that it actually contains plant-based chemicals called isoflavones, that mimic estrogen-like effects. In theory, the isoflavones within the red clover could be used to treat common symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes.
Black cohosh has also become a ubiquitous tool for women who experience extreme menopausal symptoms. Because of its ability to increase estrogen production.
Why not give the gift of tea this Mother's Day? Our herbal blends are the perfect way to tell mom this year to take some time for herself and relax. Take a look below, and browse our curated list of herbal tea blends geared towards the betterment of women's health.
