Kenya purple tea is a super-tea with more potent antioxidants and polyphenol than green or black tea!
Benefits of purple tea
Here's a rule to guide you: the brighter the food, the more goodness it holds inside. The same is true of our tea. That purple color is a sure sign that these leaves are full of violet anthocyanin and polyphenol GHG antioxidants- the same compounds scientists, doctors and nutritionists recommend for all their wellness contributions. Purple tea is naturally higher (51%) in antioxidants, polyphenols, and anthocyanins than other types of tea, even green and black (34%). When you go purple, you get the most potent tea around.
Antioxidants help our bodies neutralize free radicals from the environment, pollution, or unhealthy foods. They literally fight the oxidative stress these free radicals cause, which means you enjoy a boost in overall health. Things like improved digestion and better weight management. Most importantly, antioxidants protect against cell damage, which lowers your risk of experiencing neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases. Purple tea might just be youth in a bottle.
Purple tea has the highest amount of polyphenols
Polyphenols are micronutrients that the body absorbs through food. Purple tea has the highest amount of polyphenols: 16.5% compared to green (9.1%), and black (10.1%). Purple tea polyphenols are also believed to be more easily absorbed by your body. So you get more when you go purple.
Anthocyanins are a class of plant-based chemicals with antioxidant components. It's why our purple leaves are purple. Malvidin is the highest anthocyanin found in purple tea and research suggest that it provides anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, and cancer fighting benefits. We all know how nutritious blueberries are. Well, purple tea has even more anthocyanins, weighing in at 50% more. Our tea is even more super powered.
