3 Health Benefits of Chai Tea

#1: Relieves Pain

The clove and ginger in chai tea are highly anti-inflammatory and help reduce pain.

Clove is widely used to fight painful oral diseases and ease headaches, while  ginger can help soothe menstrual pain, headaches, and stomach pain.

#2: Aids Digestion

Ginger root has been studied extensively for its role as a digestive aid.  It can help improve circulation, relieve stomach pain, and significantly reduce nausea and vomiting.

#3: Fights Free Radical Damage

Chai is loaded with polyphenols, which are antioxidants that help combat free radical damage inside your cells to prevent disease. Tea actually contains more polyphenols than some fruits and vegetables.

Give your daily protein shake a massive health boost with chai tea. You will fall in love with this quick and easy exotic blend of flavors.
