Herbal teas have become increasing popular over the years. If you walk down the tea aisle in your supermarket, chances are you’ll find a tea for almost every condition you can possibly imagine. But for stress there are only a few that are known to be very effective and ones that most of us are not aware of.
You may think that if you tried one type of herbal tea to release your stress then you tried them all, but this is not necessarily true. Every person reacts differently to different types of herbal teas and what might work for one person might not necessarily work for another.
I have researched a variety of herbal teas that have been used for centuries to cure headaches, stress, anxiety and insomnia. Some of these time-honored remedies are showing promising results in research studies. Here is a rundown of some of the most popular natural remedies for headaches, stress, anxiety and insomnia:
For Anxiety Pangs
Passionflower Tea: Passionflower has the flavone chrysin, which provides anti-anxiety benefits. It works well for people with anxiety who suffer from obsessive thoughts. This is a great tea to try right before bed to help you relax and fall asleep.
Valerian Root Tea: If you are having trouble falling asleep at night consider trying Valerian Root. The natural compounds in valerian root are used as a sedative. This may help you relax and fall asleep faster. Valerian Root helps people to relax and makes people sleepy. Try drinking Valerian Root Tea about an hour before bed to help you get a good night sleep.
Ginger Tea: Ginger works as an anti-inflammatory agent blocking prostaglandins. These chemical messengers cause a swelling in the brain. Ginger Tea reduces the inflammation in about the same amount of time, as it would take an aspirin to work. Drink a cup of Ginger Tea when you are experiencing a headache and watch how quickly it goes away.
