Calendula or pot marigold is a plant that grows in a variety of world regions, including the United States. This flower has yellow-orange petals which are edible and are sometimes included in salads. It’s the petals that are used in brewing an herbal tea used for medicinal purposes.
The major advantage of consuming Calendula tea is basically the nutritional elements present in it. Marigold contains lots of beta carotene, a nutrient present in carrots. Beta-carotene can boost the body’s defense mechanism, cut down the risks of some forms of cancer, and helps prevent rheumatoid arthritis as well as other bone-joint inflammations.
Calendula tea is usually beneficial to those struggling with gastrointestinal problems. Calendula can shield the linings of the intestines and stomach by suppressing the prostaglandin-E1 (PGE). Also, it can help limit the negative impacts related to gastritis, stomach cancer and peptic ulcer.
Drink Calendula tea a few times a day works as a body cleanser. It acts as a detox, protects your liver, gall bladder and other internal organs from long-term failure or damage. It is also noted for reducing sore throat and fever associated with common cold and other infections. Also, it aids the body in absorbing food, particularly fatty food items. Calendula tea, if consumed after you eat, can prevent symptoms of heartburn as well.
For tea: Steep 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried flowers in 1 to 2 cups of hot water for 10 minutes. Drink as needed.
