Blue butterfly tea will turn your tea a brilliant royal blue, like, crazy blue. It's as common in some regions of the world as chamomile and ginger tea are here in the USA. It's even used to make food fun. Have you ever had blue rice?
One of blue tea's most notable compounds is quercetin, which is an antioxidant that's famous in the research community for the properties it is shown to have. Quercetin has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, cardio-vascular supportive, anti-viral and anti-carcinogenic properties.
There is more and more evidence that quercetin helps to induce autophagy which is one of the main benefits you incur from fasting. Autophagy is where your body gets rid of and recycles old cells and old cell-parts, called senescent cells. Your body performs this process when you're not eating which is usually overnight. However, having too high of blood sugar levels prevents this process from occurring. You don't have to be diabetic to eat too much throughout the day, being in a chronicly over-fed state interrupts so many natural bodily processes it isn't even funny.
While fasting and time-restricted eating are relatively easy and safe, it's good to know that there are a number of foods that can help our body perform autophagy. Miso, white chedder cheese that has aged over a year, resveratrol from red wine, quercetin, and other compounds bring this unique benefit to your table. In addition to quercetin, some flavonols in blue tea have been shown to inhibit cox-2 (which is what turmeric and ibuprofin do) and to strongly inhibit oxidative stress.
Blue tea is also well known for suppressing blood sugar levels. There are a wealth of anthocyanins (ie the healthy antioxidant found in blue / purple colored plants like blueberries). It is also an anti-hypertensive, and has been shown to inhibit LDL cholesterol oxidation (the process that makes LDL particles adhere to the artery walls).
People drink blue tea all over the world with and after meals, often after dinner before bed. It can be enjoyed warm with honey, chilled, and you can even make blue tea ice-cubes to add into other drinks. Chamomile's famous benefits combine with blue butterfly tea to provide a supremely calming cup of tea. Chamomile is known to be an anxiolytic, sleep inducing flower. It is known from studies to bind to benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, along with valerian root, kava and many other herbs considered to be mild sedatives.
