Latin Name : Jasminum
Jasmines, the beautiful, white flowers are always known for their excellent mood uplifting and healing properties and have been a part of our tradition since time immemorial. Clad by the vernacular names Common Jasmine, Poet’s Jasmine or White Jasmine, this highly scented flower offers quite a few health benefits:
- Antioxidant Properties: Perhaps the most praised aspect of jasmine tea is the high level of antioxidants within this delicate and delicious beverage. The most notable antioxidants found in jasmine tea are catechins.
- Cardiovascular Health: The catechins found within many types of jasmine tea have been shown to be a key factor in inhibiting LDL-oxidation, which is when “bad” cholesterol in your arteries gets inflamed after being oxidized.
- Arthritis and Joint Pain: One of the other positive effects of jasmine tea is the reduction in chronic discomfort associated with joint pain and arthritis. The anti-inflammatory nature of certain organic elements in jasmine tea can reduce swelling and inflammation of joints by inhibiting unwanted cellular oxygenation.
- Weight Loss: Jasmine tea can be a good addition to any diet as an aid to weight loss. The antioxidant properties of jasmine tea help to increase your metabolism, and this increase in metabolic efficiency makes exercise more effective and helps your body process nutrients quicker.
