Quercetin and the health benefits of avocado leaf tea

Quercetin and the healing benefits of avocado leaf tea

It’s no secret we believe the humble avocado holds the key to overall health and wellbeing.

And why wouldn’t we when it’s so simple to use the whole fruit? The flesh is delicious to eat, the oil and seeds are great for your skin, and the leaves are amazing to drink. Yep, that’s right. Avocado leaf tea is here—and it’s incredible.

After picking and drying some special NZ grown Bacon avocado leaves (a Mexican variety) and blending them with nature’s best ingredients, we went ahead and created three unique, healing avocado leaf tea blends that support whole-body wellness.

With enriching blends that support digestion, immunity, and a calm mind, our range of caffeine-free teas invite you to take a moment to reconnect and recharge – a moment for you from us.

But what’s the deal with avocado leaf tea? Is this just another millennial fad? The answer lies in the healing powers of quercetin.

What is quercetin?

Quercetin is a natural plant flavonoid found in a variety of fruits, vegetables, and grains. This potent natural antioxidant works to support our overall health and wellbeing, from heart health to immunity, and bone health to anti-inflammation.

Avocado leaves just so happen to be high in quercetin. These incredible leaves are full of minerals like immune-boosting zinc, bone-strengthening calcium, and magnesium and potassium. This helps promote a healthy heart by enhancing blood circulation, lowering blood pressure, and reducing hypertension.

Health benefits of avocado leaf tea

Naturally high in protein, fibre, minerals, and antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory properties, avocado leaves are your one-stop-shop for whole-body health.

The dietary fibre in Bacon avocado leaves help aid digestion and support your gut and metabolic health. And the flavonoids and high levels of quercetin work to flush out toxins and harmful free radicals, which may help reduce inflammation in the body that can lead to cancer and heart disease.

And if that wasn’t enough, avocado leaves can also boost your mood thanks to the presence of serotonin, which supports brain function and helps alleviate stress and anxiety. Let’s hear it for the avocado leaf!

Avocado Leaf Tea

Calming Tea

Avocado Leaf Tea with Chamomile & Passionflower

Avocado leaf is naturally high in quercetin, a potent natural antioxidant associated with an impressive resume of health benefits, including stress relief.

We’ve crafted this calming blend using the queen of calm herself, chamomile, renowned for its soothing properties thanks to a powerful antioxidant, apigenin. By targeting specific receptors in the brain, apigenin helps to decrease tension and anxiety, making us feel drowsy and blissfully sleepy in order to support a good night’s rest.

Enter passionflower, nature’s nervous system nurturer and all-round stress-soothing warrior. This powerful botanical works to boost the level of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in our brains. This mood-regulator helps lower our brain activity by levelling out the neurotransmitters that cause excitement, alleviating anxiety to promote a more restful sleep.

Avocado tea immunity blend

Immunity Tea

Avocado Leaf Tea with Cinnamon & Tulsi

Rich in quercetin, fibre, minerals and other antioxidants, the humble avocado leaf is bursting with active ingredients that help to boost our immune system. Quercetin is a flavonoid which has been shown to have antiviral and anti-allergic properties.

Paired effortlessly with cinnamon, this immune-boosting tea ingredient boasts an impressive repertoire of antioxidants and antibacterial compounds that help ward off infections, viruses and drug-resistant fungi. And as if we needed another reason to love this soothing spice, cinnamon may also help to reduce PMS and menstrual symptoms.

Blended with tulsi, also known as “holy basil”, this tea is a natural immunity enhancer. This Indian native is an ancient herb bursting with anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that help fight respiratory illnesses like colds, asthma and bronchitis.

Avocado leaf tea for digestion

Digest Tea

Avocado Leaf with Lemongrass & Ginger

Among the superabundance of health benefits found in avocado leaves is digestive support. Helping to reshape our gut microbiota, the querciten found in avocado leaves is a powerful anti-inlammatory molecule that helps to ease disrupted bowel movements.

Lemongrass is a staple in any cleansing diet, which works to flush toxins and reduce any water retention that may lead to bloating. This fragrant tropical grass variety has been used for centuries as a natural diuretic, keeping our digestive functions under control by soothing and settling the stomach.

No digestive support aid is complete without ginger, a timeless anti-nausea remedy and go-to spice for healthy digestion. Ginger contains gingerols and shogaols, two compounds that help to increase food absorption and gently stimulate the emptying of the stomach. Great for alleviating a full tummy after a big meal.
