The withinUs™ Team has been searching for an amazing night time tea, and we have finally found one. We value out beauty sleep, but sometimes, getting a truly restful sleep is not as easy as it sounds. Of course there are contributing factors to an un-restful sleep - caffeine being a big one. Tea is a common night-time beverage many have. It's important to note what type of tea you are having pre-bedtime, as many teas contain caffeine. Black tea, for example, contains 60-90mg of caffeine per cup - this is significantly less caffeine than coffee, but caffeine none-the-less. When selecting a night-time tea, be sure to choose one with low caffeine levels, such as herbal tea.
Adding withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen to your night-time herbal tea can help you have a restful sleep. How? TruMarine® Collagen contains the amino acid - glycine. Glycine is one of the main amino acids used to form collagen and can be found in some protein sources, such as TruMarine® Collagen. Glycine is often used to help people suffering from chronic fatigue or sleeping disorders, as it fights the effects of stress and anxiety and improves sleep quality.
This 'Ultimate Night Time Tea' recipe by Kiara Schwartz is a great drink to help you relax and have a great sleep. So, without further adieu we introduce Kiara's 'Ultimate Night Time Tea' recipe.
"Ending my days with this tea is like therapy! I get so excited to make it and even more to sip on it in bed while winding down to sleep time. I've learnt over the past years that rituals with scent and taste are incredibly important to my well being, I highly recommend that you get into the habit of creating scents and rituals that match times of the day where you want to achieve certain things. Like bed time, morning or even mid day re-focus! I mean just think of the trigger the scent of coffee has to your mind in the morning. You can create that for anything by making it a routine."
Here are a few of the health benefits this tea will give your body:
Ginger: boosts Immune system, Lower Blood Sugar, Treats Nausea, serves as an anti inflammatory
Lemon: balances pH levels, rich source of Vitamin C, aids digestion, helps replenish salt, benefits skin and prevents wrinkles, strengthens liver
withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen: improves hair, skin, nail, joint and bone health by encouraging collagen production within the body. Collagen is the most abundant structural protein in the body, which stops production after the age 25, and depletes by 1% every following year.
Glycine: one of the 18 amino acids found in withinUs™ TruMarine® Collagen that helps improve sleep quality and helps people suffering from chronic fatigue
