Regain Your Zen with F&N NutriTea Lemongrass with Ginger Tea
A Soothing and Invigorating Beverage to Complement Your Hectic Lifestyle
Singapore, April XX, 2014 — It is an acknowledged fact that our hectic schedules can take a toll on our mental and physical health. When exhausted and stressed, our stomach react to negative stimuli, resulting in indigestion and discomfort and, in more severe cases, irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) that is characterized by indigestion, flatulence and bloated-ness.
Lemongrass is widely accepted and used in many cultures around the world from Africa, to the United Kingdom and to Asia, for its many health benefits to detoxify and revitalise the body, to aid digestion, as a relief for the flu and fever, as an anti-rheumatic treatment and for anti-inflammation. Ginger, made into a drink, is another popular aid for indigestion, to prevent the feeling of being bloated, to improve blood circulation and for detoxification. Both lemongrass and ginger are also known to lift the spirits and have a calming effect to the nerves apart from soothing the digestive tract.
According to the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology”, a brew of lemongrass and ginger tea will soothe the stomach, relieve nausea, prevent an upset stomach and ease the symptoms of gas. The anti-bacterial qualities of lemongrass and ginger tea are credited with restoring balance and comfort to the digestive tract. So what better way is there to relieve digestive discomfort and regain your Zen with the newest addition to the F&N NutriTea range of Asian beverages, F&N NutriTea Lemongrass with Ginger Tea? F&N NutriTea brews the goodness of lemongrass and ginger in a convenient ready-to-drink pack with the brand new F&N NutriTea Lemongrass with Ginger Tea.
Native to the South East Asia region, lemongrass is famed for its lemony scent and is conventionally added to enhance the aroma of traditional South East Asian cuisines. Containing citral, an active compound that characterizes the citrusy fragrance, lemongrass has anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties that aids in easing sore throats caused by microbial infection and maintaining intestinal health. Lemongrass also possesses diuretic properties, aiding the body to restore homeostasis and to detoxify our bodies, keeping our organs healthy. The sedative qualities of citral help to relax the brain and hence, alleviating stress and improving mood.
Ginger is iconic to the Asian culture and cuisines and is used widely as flavouring to zest up Asian dishes with a unique tanginess and spiciness. Ginger has also been prescribed by herbalists to treat indigestion for millennia. Gingerol, the active primary constituent in ginger, stimulates the production of saliva, bile and gastric acid, improving motility of the upper gastrointestinal tract and thus, aiding in digestion. Gingerol also has anti-spasmodic properties that help to relax the muscles, thus reducing flatulence and providing a quick escape from bloated-ness. In addition to being a digestive aid, gingerol is a powerful antioxidant that helps to cleanse our bodies from the harmful toxins that are secreted when we are anxious, reducing psychological stress.
