Adaptogens: What are They and Why Should I Drink them?
Chances are you’ve heard the word ‘adaptogen’ before but you still may be scratching your head and wondering why it’s a good idea to consider adding them to your daily mix.
Adaptogens are plants (and fungi) that help us to adapt and build resistance to the stress we face in our daily lives (hello celebration season!). For thousands of years they’ve been used as functional botanicals in the Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine systems to support the body into a state of balance (homeostasis) and well-being.
Kite Sparkling Adaptogenic Teas are a wonderful non-alcoholic alternative for when you want to Unwind while avoiding booze. Steeped In Goodness™ they contain a variety of adaptogens including Moringa, Tulsi, Ashwagandha and Licorice designed to support both the body and mind.
With 3 tasty flavours (Rise LEMON MORINGA, Align TULSI HIBISCUS and Unwind ASHWAGANDHA ORANGE) they are perfect on their own, or as a base for endless recipes and mocktails. They are made locally, female-founded and truly good for you! (USDA certified Organic, Vegan, Zero Sugar, Keto & Whole30 Approved).
