Does Happy Place Tea Really Make You Happy?

Does Happy Place Tea Really Make You Happy?

 

Here’s a piece of Loose Leaf Tea Market trivia: Happy Place has been our most popular tea for three years in a row! So, what exactly makes this blend so popular? And more importantly, does this drink actually make you happy with health benefits, and without the side effects of other common happiness-inducing beverages (like hangovers, beer bellies, and fatty livers)? The answer is a resounding yes- and to find out why, read on!

 

Happy Place is a fragrant herbal blend that is uplifting, anti-inflammatory, and soothing to the digestive tract. It consists of warming ginger, delicious crystallized ginger, antioxidant-rich decaffeinated mango green tea, smooth rooibos, fragrant lemongrass, soothing lemon verbena, calming chamomile, healing calendula, anti-inflammatory turmeric, and a few citrus essential oils to boot. Not only does this incredible tea soothe your digestive tract and help your body make all its necessary neurotransmitters, but it helps relieve stress. Let’s take a deeper dive into why Happy Place works so well.

 

It Helps to Heal Your Gut

 

As it turns out, a majority of the neurotransmitters that are responsible for your mood- namely, 90% to 95% of your serotonin, 50% of your dopamine, and a large percentage of the molecule GABA- are produced in your digestive tract, not your brain. In recent years, it has been shown that the gut and the brain are profoundly connected, and that gastrointestinal disorders such as IBS are linked to anxiety, brain fog, depression, and in at least one study, Autism spectrum disorder. Conversely, by healing their guts, many people have healed from depression and anxiety. Therefore, if you want to get happy, your gut is a great place to start.

 

How does Happy Place help? For starters, it’s strongly anti-inflammatory. When it comes to inflammation, our guts take the hardest hit. But in this blend, ginger and turmeric work together to combat both intrinsic and dietary-related inflammation. This allows the tissues to heal and repair themselves.

 

For this, chamomile and calendula work together to heal the epithelial tissue of the gut. Calendula has one of the longest uses in history for this purpose. Just as it helps with skin conditions, like eczema and psoriasis, calendula helps to heal inflamed gastrointestinal tissue. Similarly, chamomile is powerful for relieving digestive distress and can even soothe ulcers.

 

Next, lemongrass helps by killing off disease-causing bacteria and easing digestive spasms. It soothes stomach aches, tones the muscles of the digestive tract, and relieves pain. Lemon verbena soothes both the nerves of the gut and the brain. When your gut is in good working order, it will produce hearty amounts of all your happiness neurotransmitters- keeping you peaceful, stress-free, and happy.

 

It Boosts Happiness Hormones

 

Green tea, which is a key ingredient in Happy Place, has been shown to boost both serotonin levels and GABA. Serotonin stabilizes your mood, helps to regulate your appetite, helps you sleep, and aids in dreaming. GABA keeps you calm, anxiety-free, and fights depression. Happy Place contains all the serotonin- and GABA-boosting benefits of green tea without the caffeine- so you don’t have to worry about jitters.

 

Lemon essential oil, which is also used in Happy Place, has been shown to boost both serotonin and dopamine levels. Sweet orange essential oil has been shown to relieve anxiety and also increase the body’s production of serotonin. If you drink Happy Place regularly, you will notice that you feel naturally calmer and happier!

 

It is High in Antioxidants

 

You have probably heard a lot about how important antioxidants are for your health. Here’s one more reason: the oxidative stress caused by toxins called free radicals is a major cause of degenerative nervous system diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Antioxidants fight against the damage caused by free radicals and protect against degenerative brain damage- both short and long-term. In particular, turmeric has been used in South Asia for thousands of years, and has been linked to the strikingly low incidences of dementia in certain parts of India. Happy Place gives you a hearty dose of turmeric in each cup.

 

If you look closely at Happy Place, you will see herbs of various colors. A spectrum of colors indicates antioxidants of various sorts, giving your brain protection from all angles. The striking red Rooibos tea used in Happy Place is extremely high in antioxidants, along with green tea. You can rest assured that you are protecting your brain with every yummy sip.

 

In short, all the ingredients in Happy Place work synergistically to keep you happy, and they do a great job. Plus, it’s delicious! So, here’s to your happiness, energy, and great health!
