Chai has been drunk by Indians for centuries to maintain good health and because it tastes so damn good. But as we learn more about this amazing combination of tea and aromatic spices, we learn more about its exact health benefits too. Black tea is awash with good antioxidants. Cinnamon contains manganese, dietary fiber, calcium, iron, and zinc and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat colds, nausea, diarrhoea and menstrual cramps. Cardamom has a wealth of health benefits, most notably that it aids digestion and supports the immune system. It also has great antioxidant properties to help detoxify the body and improve blood circulation. Ginger’s greatest claim to fame is as a remedy for nausea and a digestive aid. Moreover, ginger has gut-boosting properties, which bolster our defences against colds and other common viruses. Although small in size, cloves pack in a lot of great benefits. They help digestion by relaxing the lining of the GI tract, thereby alleviating nausea, vomiting, gas and stomach aches, and are a natural painkiller and antibacterial. Apart from tasting great, honey has so many unique qualities. The flavonoids it contains are antioxidants, which help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease. Honey is also anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, particularly useful to good skin health, and is probiotic. With its all-natural ingredients, premium Australian honey, warming capabilities and delicious taste, a bag of Prana Chai can keep you feeling healthy and at your best.
