The Journey Begins: BCIT's NRG Unlocks the Secrets of Tea'd Greens

Imagine holding a cup of tea that’s not just warming your hands but is also a vessel of numerous health benefits, meticulously analyzed and confirmed by experts. That's precisely the journey we embarked upon when we sent our Tea'd Greens to the esteemed BCIT’s Natural Health and Food Products Research Group (NRG). Known for their rigorous analysis and expertise in the nutritional profiling of natural health products, NRG was the perfect match for unveiling the intricate nutritional nuances of our teas.

A Closer Look at the Nutritional Powerhouse

At the heart of Tea'd Greens lies a treasure trove of phytochemicals, those magical compounds that have been celebrated for their health benefits. From the essential processes like photosynthesis that fuel the plant's growth to the powerful antioxidants that fight oxidative stress in humans, plants are indeed “chock-a-block” full of wonders. Our quest was to understand how our unique processing methods influence these beneficial compounds and, by extension, the health benefits they offer to you, the consumer.

There are compounds that have been isolated and studied by science because of their tremendous benefits to human health. Think of the plethora of supplements notwithstanding the various vitamins and minerals that line the shelves of health food stores.

Simply stated, there is no replacement for the inclusion of greens and vegetables in our diets. I imagine as I type this article many of us continue to promise ourselves to eat more fruit and vegetables.

  • Green Tea Inspired Greens

    Known for its minimal oxidation process, our green tea retains chlorophyll, amplifying the presence of antioxidants like saponarin, isovitexin, and octacosanol. These compounds have been linked to a plethora of benefits, including detoxification, immune support, and anti-inflammatory properties. It’s a blend that not only refreshes but also fortifies your body.

  • Oolong Tea Inspired Greens

    Striking the perfect balance with a moderate oxidation process, oolong tea captures the essence of both green and black teas. This unique processing method preserves some nutrients found in green leaves while introducing new beneficial compounds. The result? A tea that supports immune health, aids in detoxification, and repairs oxidative damage, among other benefits.

  • Black Tea Inspired Greens

    Our black tea inspired greens undergoe maximum oxidation, leading to the creation of new compounds like GABA and an increase in amino acids such as tryptophan. This enhances its calming effects on the nervous system, moderation of moods, and support for immune health.

The Synergistic Effect of Barley, Wheat, and Oats

The analysis did not stop at the oxidation process. It delved deeper into the differences between the leaves of barley, wheat, and oats used in our teas. This comprehensive look provided evidence of significant nutritional differences and underscored the synergistic benefits of combining these leaves, reinforcing our belief in the power of diversity within the plant kingdom.

Embracing the Whole Plant Matrix

One of the most profound conclusions from our analysis with BCIT’s NRG is the undeniable benefit of consuming the whole plant matrix. Unlike isolated nutrients, the complex interaction of phytonutrients within the whole plant offers unmatched health benefits. Tea'd Greens is more than just tea; it's an infusion of the complete plant matrix, designed as nature intended.

Conclusion: A Cup Full of Nature's Intent

In a world bustling with dietary supplements and isolated vitamins, Tea'd Greens stands out as a testament to the power of nature’s design. Through the meticulous analysis by BCIT’s Natural Health and Food Products Research Group, we’ve uncovered the depth of nutritional benefits our teas offer. From detoxifying antioxidants in green tea to the mood-modulating compounds in black tea, each sip is a step closer to embracing the full spectrum of health benefits offered by the plant kingdom. Tea'd Greens is not just a beverage; it's a commitment to your health, backed by science and crafted with passion. Let's raise a cup to the wonders of nature, one sip at a time.

Remember, in the world of health and wellness, the journey is just as important as the destination. Here's to continuing our journey together, exploring the rich tapestry of nutrients that nature has to offer, with Tea'd Greens as your companion.
