Health Benefits of 4 Ayurvedic Ingredients used in Infusions
‘Soothing’, ‘relaxing’, ‘calming’, are a few of the sentiments one associates with the ancient concept of ayurvedic healing.
Commonly popular in South Asian countries like Sri Lanka, the use of ayurvedic ingredients like ginger, turmeric, cinnamon and cardamom have proved to be vastly beneficial to one’s mental and physical wellbeing. We, at Dilmah Tea, have concocted a beverage that’s solely dedicated to improving your health with the use of these ayurvedic ingredients.
Dilmah Infusions incorporates garden herbs with tantalizing spices to create healing formulas that will nourish and revitalise your mind and body. Infusions is not a tea-based beverage, but the use of these natural herbs and spices that are packed with health benefits makes it as good as drinking a cup of tea – minus the caffeine.
Let’s take a quick look at some of the health benefits that are evident in the main ayurvedic ingredients used in Dilmah Infusions.
A spice grown right here on our island, cardamom is derived from the seed pods of various plants in the ginger family. The spice, though small is packed with a wealth of health benefits that aid in protecting your heart and improving your blood circulation. Cardamom is also believed to be useful in acting as a cancer preventive.
Ginger, a commonly used root in traditional ayurvedic medicine is most commonly used to alleviate pregnancy-related nausea. Although unconfirmed by scientific data, ginger may reduce muscle pain and soreness, and aid in treating rheumatoid arthritis.
Another spice originating from the ginger plant family; turmeric is created by soaking, drying and grinding the root into a fine powder. We’ve added turmeric to our infusions as it’s proven to improve your brain function while also protecting it from certain illnesses like Alzheimer’s or depression. It is known that ingesting turmeric may also prevent the development of cancerous cells.
The wild popularity of cinnamon on our island has contributed to Sri Lanka being the largest producer of this spice. Used for a variety of reasons like adding flavour to meals, cinnamon is also used to treat respiratory, gynaecological and digestive ailments, and also lower blood sugar levels.
