Green Iron Herbal Tea
Iron is a finnicky sort of mineral. Necessary for the transport of oxygen across the body and therefore energy, yet in certain forms considered a heavy metal. Traditional supplementation techniques can be ineffective at best or overloading at worst.
Lucky for us we have herbal allies that transmute unavailable iron into bioavailable forms.
Oatstraw the mineral rich waste from our favorite breakfast porridge, Avena sativa. Abundant in not only iron, but magnesium, silica, phosphorus, and selenium. This humble grass benefits mood, collagen production, hair and nail strength, and electrical signals between body and brain!
Nettle is an all around tonic, keeping systems toned and strong. Specifically strengthening to bone health, urinary and prostate, and immune system. Abundant in iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.
Dandelion is a detox organ helper, supporting liver and bile health making your body's digestion much more effective. This benefits not only comfort of digestion but your body's ability to absorb minerals and nutrients. Abundant in potassium, calcium, manganese, iron, and magnesium.
Hibiscus is a tart and sassy calyx full of vitamin C. This antioxidant vitamin is not only helpful for managing free radicals but also creating a vehicle to absorb and transport iron across cells. We made a whole post about this very important process here.
Sencha green tea is a young and crisp green tea. A mild boost of caffiene is going to get you going while the herbal allies build energy for the long hual. The early picked green tea in a small ratio is going to prevent overstimualtion from caffiene, noticeable but not overwhelming!
