Blue Lotus Tea | The Health and Parasite Elimination Benefits

Blue Lotus (Nymphaea Caerulea) has been revered for its beauty and spiritual significance for thousands of years. Originating from the Nile River in Egypt, this aquatic plant has also found its way into various traditional medicines and herbal remedies, for is its potential health benefits, especially when consumed as a tea. 

What is Blue Lotus Tea?

Blue Lotus tea is made by steeping the dried petals of the Blue Lotus flower in hot water. This tea has a mild, floral flavour and is often consumed for its relaxing and mood-enhancing properties. However, recent studies and anecdotal evidence suggest that Blue Lotus tea may offer more than just relaxation—it may also have several health benefits, especially when it comes to detoxification and parasite elimination.

Health Benefits of Blue Lotus Tea

1. Rich in Antioxidants

Blue Lotus contains a variety of antioxidants such as flavonoids, quercetin, kaempferol, and myricetin (8). Antioxidants can prevent or delay certain types of cell damage by neutralizing harmful free radicals in the body. Drinking Blue Lotus tea, can support your body's natural detoxification processes and reduce oxidative stress, which is linked to numerous chronic diseases.

2. Supports Liver Health

The liver plays a crucial role in detoxifying the body by filtering out toxins and metabolic waste products. Some studies suggest that Blue Lotus may help support liver function and promote liver detoxification. Incorporating Blue Lotus tea into your detox regimen, can promote your liver working more efficiently and effectively.

3. Anti-parasitic Properties

In traditional medicine, Blue Lotus has been used to treat various gastrointestinal issues, including parasitic infections. Some compounds found in Blue Lotus, such as nuciferine and aporphine, have been shown to have anti-parasitic properties. Drinking Blue Lotus tea can support the elimination of parasites from the digestive tract and improve overall gut health.

4. Relaxation and Stress Reduction

Detoxifying the body can be a stressful process and stress is also a major contributor to Candida Overgrowth, so its something that needs to be managed in order to heal! Blue Lotus tea is well-known for its relaxing and mood-enhancing effects. Blue Lotus contains Nuciferine which is a compound that has been shown to have antipsychotic effects (6). With this in mind, you may experience mild sedation that can calm your mind and body, which can help you sleep better (7) and reduce stress.

Blue lotus also contains apomorphine and nuciferine. Apomorphine is a psychoactive compound and dopamine agonist. This means it replaces dopamine, giving a feeling of euphoria (4). This effect alone is why some consider blue lotus tea a natural aphrodisiac. 

How to Incorporate Blue Lotus Tea into Your Detox Regimen

If you're interested in trying Blue Lotus tea for its health benefits, it's essential to choose high-quality, organic Blue Lotus petals such as those we source at Zeally Herbs.

To make Blue Lotus tea, simply steep 1-2 teaspoons of dried Blue Lotus petals in hot water for 5-10 minutes. You can drink this tea on its own or mix it with other detoxifying herbs and spices, such as ginger or turmeric, for added benefits or create a blue lotus cacao drink based on plant milks.

The tea has a strong, earthy taste. Its not too overpowering, however for those that prefer a little bit of sweetness, adding about a teaspoon or two of natural honey is optional.

Within an hour or so of drinking about a cup of blue lotus tea, many note a feeling of sleepiness, so its often best consumed before bed.

Incorporating Blue Lotus tea into your detox regimen may offer a natural and holistic approach to supporting your body's detoxification processes and improving overall health and well-being.
