“Chocolate Mint” is a cultivar of peppermint known for its’ “deep” and mentholated fragrance and flavor compared to standard peppermint. Blue butterfly tea (clitoria ternatea) has numerous effects as demostrated by scientific research and is famous for its bright royal blue color and chamomile-like taste.
It contains quercetin, an anti-inflammatory, cardio-vascular-supportive and anti-carcinogenic compound found in red wine, balsamic vinegar and red onions (among other foods, herbs etc). Its’ flavonols showed strong inhibition of COX-2 activity and suppression of ROS (reactive oxygen species aka oxidative damage).
Other Cox-2 inhibitors you might already know are turmeric and ibuprofin! It is also a potent blood-sugar regulator and very usefulfor anyone that wants lower blood-sugar.
