Lafayette, CO. (Mar. XX, 2021): As we continue to battle COVID-19 as well as cold and flu season, it’s important to find safe, natural ways to build a strong immune system and stay healthy. An easy way to boost your immune system is by drinking a delicious, healthy beverage each day like Sherpa Chai Turmeric Ginger chai and adding OleyHemp honey.

What’s at Stake?

Increased stress due to a difficult economy and job market, fear of contracting an illness, as well as massive uncertainty about the future can easily lead to pushing healthy choices to the back burner. You might feel too tired or stressed to exercise or focus on meal planning. However, that will not set you up for success with your health. When you allow yourself to be overcome with stress and stop prioritizing healthy decisions, it can lead to a compromised immune system, which can decrease your body’s white blood cells needed to fight off infection. A compromised immune system also means it may take you longer to recover from illness, create frequent digestive issues, and lead to chronic fatigue. 

An Easy Solution

For those who are coffee or tea drinkers, an easy option to maximize the health of your daily, morning beverage is by choosing to have a cup of chai instead of coffee. According to Sherpa Chai CEO Dave McKean, “Our customers love the boost they receive from drinking chai without the side effects of coffee.”

Sherpa Chai’s delicious Turmeric Ginger chai is made in Colorado with cool, Rocky Mountain water and organic ingredients, including vegan cane sugar, hand-pressed fresh ginger, hand-pressed turmeric, black pepper, cardamom, and citric acid. This delicious spice blend of holistic ingredients provides both health benefits and a delicious new take on chai.

Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, has high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that can alleviate symptoms of colds and coughs, manage metabolism, build immunity, improve skin, and aid digestion. 

Ginger is another great addition to your diet because of its immense antibacterial and other healing properties, including preventing oral bacteria from growing, calming a queasy stomach and indigestion, soothing sore muscles, easing arthritis symptoms, lowering blood sugar, diminishing period pains, lowering cholesterol, and protecting against disease. 

Health Benefits of Honey Adds More than Sweetness

To make this daily drink even richer in health benefits and sweeter to your taste buds, add OleyHemp honey. It is believed that honey’s healing powers come from its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, which do wonders to relieve symptoms of colds, sore throats, and cases of flu. “By consuming raw honey as nature intended, we are opening ourselves to a world of health benefits be it by the spoonful or in combination with tea,” says OleyHemp founder Jeffrey Brooks.

OleyHemp’s Raw Honey is all-natural, never heated or filtered, just like nature intended. Honey is known to contain high levels of antioxidants which have been linked to a reduced risk of heart attacks, strokes, and some types of cancer. Darker types of honey have been found to have higher levels of antioxidants than lighter varieties. These antioxidants may lead to reductions in blood pressure, an important risk factor for heart disease. They may also help the arteries in your heart dilate, increasing blood flow to prevent blood clot formation, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

A tablespoon of OleyHemp’s Raw Honey contains about 17 grams of sugar and is a terrific alternative to refined sugar. It's important to choose a natural, pure, raw honey that retains all of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants.

Regardless of which steps you currently take to improve your health, making small, consistent changes will set you up for long-term success. There are many ways to build a strong immune system on a daily basis: staying hydrated, getting 7-9 hours of sleep per night, taking vitamin C, and eating a diet rich in vitamins and minerals. For an easy way to start your day right, pour a cup of Sherpa Chai Turmeric Ginger chai as a replacement for coffee and add a tablespoon of OleyHemp honey.
