While the pandemic continues in the world, you may feel anxious or restless when you are locked in, freedom is restricted.
Also, while you're having days when you're not feeling very good, coronavirus isolation may have brought extra load on it.
You're not alone! So, when you feel low on your energy, I wanted to write about how to use tea to improve your mood.
If you think a simple cup of tea can be so successful, we can say that everything is thanks to the "tein". (Scientifically L-theanine).
1- It can increase some neurotransmitters that are very important to our mood.
The tein can affect everything from sleep, stress, focus and brain health to our immune system. So neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that provide information to your brain from different parts of your body. These messages can be sent from one brain cell to another, for example, sending a message from your brain to your muscles. Some neurotransmitters affect how you feel. Seratonin, for example, helps regulate your positive feelings, its deficiency can cause depression. Dopamine gives you a sense of happiness and reward. GABA can regulate concern. According to research, these three neurotransmitters, which are very important to our l-theanine mood, can also increase these three neurotransmitters.
2- Can help us calm down
When L-Theanine was regularly taken daily, the researchers observed that participants had improved moods and had signs of stress and anxiety. Another study found that participants who reacted poorly in stress and tense moments had a positive effect on their calm.
3- Can help us give healthy reactions in stressful moments
In a further study, multiple stress task tests were performed on the participants given to l-theanine, and cortisol rates were lower in the measurements made 1 hour after participants who were closer to Anxion were given l-theanine.
Research shows that tea can help our moods feel good, so let's see which of the major teas we need to keep at home:
Research suggests l-teanincan can improve memory and support healthier brain function in lowering stes levels with caffeine.
Yeast tea, made from grinding of all green tea leaves, contains a higher rate of l-tiamine. This means that there are more effects on our mental health.
Another study revealed that l-theamine and caffeine combinations will help support relaxation, reduce tension and support feelings of calm.
The combination of L-theanine-caffeine means that you can experience a comfortable wakefulness where you can be both calm and focused.
The researchers concluded that drinking black tea for at least 6 weeks was beneficial to reduce cortisol (stress) levels. In addition to our native Turkish tea, you can also try different alternatives such as English breakfast, chai, oolong tea.
Chamomile tea is generally known for making it easier to sleep comfortably or fall asleep. But research has shown that chamomile tea is also effective to overcome depressive emotions and anxious moods. In addition to chamomile tea; herbal teas such as balm, wheel, lemonure have the same effect.
Turmeric, a species of ginger family, has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda. Research shows that polyphenol can support healthy Levels of BDNF, which can improve your mood and help you better cope with stressful situations. Some research has also found that curcumin can help improve anxiety and depression symptoms.
All you need to prepare turmeric tea is freshly ground turmeric and hot water.
It is important to remember to add aroma to your tea and to benefit from the benefits of aroma therapy. It is important to remember the three calls that will be most beneficial in the direction of boosting your mood, mint, bergamot and lavender. Mint causes you to relax both when it is useful to awareness and memory and every sip. Lavender, on the other hand, is a better mood, useful for reducing anxious mood. The essence of bergamot, which has the smell of citrus fruits, was also found to be good for anxiety and cursormood. You can find the bergamot aroma in earl grey.
