A warm and fragrant infusion. With the sweet taste of liquorice and the aromatic touch of cinnamon, it is a drink to be enjoyed.
About the infusion
Its cinnamon content makes it a digestive and carminative infusion (it favours the expulsion of gases). It is very useful for heavy digestions, to drink after large meals and also as an appetite stimulant. Orange and lemon also contribute vitamins and mineral salts.
About its ingredients
Cinnamon has a high flavonoid content, which protects the body from oxidative damage. Cinnamaldehyde, cinnamon's main compound, kills and controls bacteria. It also contains eugenol, which has analgesic and anaesthetic functions.
The use of cinnamon in infusions brings us benefits such as:
Improves the function of the respiratory system
Helps weight loss
Promotes better blood circulation
Helps to reduce menstrual cramps
Liquorice is considered one of the best remedies for ulcers and heartburn. You may be surprised to know that liquorice is a legume, like pulses. Its composition includes glycyrrhizin, which is considered to be much sweeter than sugar. Liquorice also contains flavonoids, isoflavones, coumarins, malic and salicylic acid, proteins, mineral salts and vitamins C and B. Glycyrrhizin is the substance responsible for its sweetening power and certain flavonoids act as antispasmodic, digestive, carminative and anti-ulcer agents.
Liquorice is therefore used for the benefit of:
Upset stomach disorders
To combat heartburn or sour stomach
To alleviate gastro-oesophageal reflux
In difficult digestion
Against gastrointestinal spasms
To relieve stomach heaviness after a heavy meal
Good support in case of gastric and duodenal ulcers
Orange peel, cinnamon (31.5%), liquorice (22%), lemon peel and black pepper.
