The Best Tea to Help a Sore Throat
What tea can relieve a sore throat? Warm tea can alleviate swelling and inflammation associated with sore throats. However, the right cup can speed up healing.
We have listed our top five options when you wake up with a sore throat.
Chamomile teas such as Luxmi’s Chamomile Mintblend can be used to soothe inflamed tissues for hundreds upon hundreds of years. Chamomile’s soothing properties can help reduce swelling in the tonsils, lymph nodes, and tonsils.
Turmeric is the best remedy for sore throats for two reasons. It is an internal anti-inflammatory stronger than chamomile and supports the body’s immune system in fighting potential infections. Curcumin, a plant compound that is both anti-viral- and anti-bacterial, is considered a superfood worldwide. Luxmi’s Turmeric Times Out is a delicious way to get this healing root.
Mint Green Teas can be refreshing on a hot summer day. They are also helpful tools to keep in your natural remedies cabinet. The internal cooling effects of mint can help reduce inflammation and pain from a sore throat.
You can ease your pain by drinking a ginger-infused tea or adding a slice to your cup. Ginger has the same anti-inflammatory properties as the teas mentioned above and can also be used to treat the root cause of infection.
