HELPS BALANCE PEACE PROPERTIES AND HEALTH BENEFITS
In order to take into account each of the qualities of this fantastic infusion, we must analyse the natural active ingredients of which it is composed:
The flowers improve the functions of the cardiovascular system. This is one of the most important benefits of hawthorn consumption. It is considered a cardiotonic plant. It also dilates blood vessels, acts as an antioxidant and helps to keep blood pressure at normal levels. It has calming and antispasmodic properties that prevent anxiety, insomnia and stress.
It is commonly used during the menopause. Flavonoids improve circulation, regulate palpitations, reduce anxiety and reduce hot flushes. It is used to reduce digestive problems such as vomiting, stomach pain or diarrhoea.
Scientific research is once again focusing on its beneficial action on low moods. We now know that hypericum, with its complex chemical composition, is an effective aid against discouragement and depression, due to its action on various neurotransmitters, chemical substances that our body produces and which are closely related to emotions and moods. Over the last 20 years, numerous clinical studies have shown its usefulness in the treatment of low mood, depression, anxiety, night terrors and neurovegetative disorders associated with the menopause.
For thousands of years, chamomile has been used as an infusion to treat various problems of the digestive system. Because of its chamazulene content, it is ideal for heavy digestions, as an anti-inflammatory and to prevent bloating, flatulence and belching. Chamomile also contributes to optimal mental and physical relaxation. It relaxes our body and prepares us for a better night's rest. This action is caused by apigenin, a flavonoid found in chamomile. This flavonoid combines with benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, providing a relaxing effect to reduce anxiety.
Therefore, not only does it have an effect on the digestive system, but it also helps us to get a good night's sleep.
ORANGE BLOSSOM FLOWER
Thanks to its sedative and anti-inflammatory properties, orange blossom is widely used to relieve pain such as headaches or migraines. For sore throats and coughs, it is highly recommended to take an infusion made with orange blossom, which can be complemented with other natural ingredients such as honey, lemon or cinnamon.
Due to its high pectin content, orange blossom facilitates the treatment of stomach problems such as heavy and slow digestion, nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea. Due to its high iron and potassium content, it also helps to combat anaemia.
The anxiolytic and hypnotic properties of orange blossom help to combat stress and anxiety. It also helps to fall asleep.
Passionflower is known to relieve nervousness and promote sleep. Numerous studies have confirmed that the anxiolytic and sedative action of passionflower is due to the presence of all its active ingredients. The absence of side effects and contraindications means it is widely used.
Valerian acts as a sedative agent, relaxing the nervous system and the brain. It is also recommended for stress and anxiety-related conditions with other reactions such as nervous disorders, headaches and migraines, and stomach pains.
It also relieves symptoms of anxiety, emotionality or sadness. It also helps to stabilise the heart rhythm, which is why its intake may be recommended for people suffering from arrhythmias.
