Quercetin and the health 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!
