Rich in color, earthy, caffeine free, and good for whole body health? Butterfly pea tea has hit the scene as our new favorite base for boba tea and mocktails, but recent studies have revealed that it’s a powerful tool to fight stress and promotes radiant skin.
Stay Alert and Refreshed Without Caffeine
Butterfly Pea Tea is rich in adaptogens. Adaptogens work to regulate your hypothalamic, pituitary, and adrenal glands during your body’s stress response. When we run into a stressful situation, our bodies attempt to “resist” the stressful stimuli and keep our minds clear and ready to respond. This is a helpful evolutionary tool that kept our ancestors from being eaten by lions. Today, it helps us process emergencies or navigate difficult social situations. Adaptogens step in to help prolong the “resistance” phase to stay alert and responsive.
Get Brighter, Clearer Skin
If icy winter weather has your skin chapped, look no further. A 2018 study found that Butterfly Pea Tea was able to reduce redness, itching, and irritation when applied topically. The antioxidants also provided a dramatic increases in moisture retention.
Don’t Forget to Add Lemon
Butterfly pea tea is sensitive to variations in PH. When fresh, its’ PH is in the range of 6.0–8.0 and the tea is a rich indigo color. If exposed to a more acidic PH (think lemons), the tea reaches a soft lavender color.
Mix It Up
Butterfly Pea Tea is truly a chameleon. It can be applied topically as a face mask, sipped as a hot tea, or poured over ice as a delicious mocktail.
