Healthy Earl Grey Tea Benefits

The name “Earl Grey” comes from Charles Grey of England, the second Earl Grey, who served as Britain’s Prime Minister from 1830-1834. It is still unknown how the tea came about this name, but suffice to say the blend has taken the world over with its bright citrus-y undertones and bold black tea flavor.

Earl grey tea is made using traditional black tea infused with the scent and flavor of dried bergamot orange peels. This can be done by tossing the black tea leaves with the bergamot peels and allowing them to infuse over period of time or by pressing the tea leaves and bergamot peels together to further instill flavor. The latter method produces a much sharper flavored tea.

The Health Benefits of Earl Grey Tea

1. Increased Immune Function

It has been found that earl grey tea boasts quite the immune boosting punch due to its high content of bergmot oil pressed from those little inedible citrus fruits that grow in the southern regions of Italy.

The peels of these fruits are full to bursting with potent antioxidants that target and destroy free radicals and oxidative stressors that cause havoc in the body. These antioxidants are known to help reduce fever, fight off infection, and fend off other forms of invaders like cold and flu germs.

This is why earl grey tea is the perfect winter beverage!

2. Boosts Energy

Aside from the caffeine content of a good black tea, earl grey has the added bonus of bergamot essential oil. This potent little EO is the key to earl grey tea’s clarifying benefits. So, if you have a fuzzy mind, sip up on some earl grey and feel its energizing and clarifying effects both mentally and physically.

3. Enahanced Mood

The bergamot essential oil found in earl grey tea is also an effective stress reducer because it alleviates anxiety, general negativity, and mild to moderate depression. It’s an excellent mood stabilizer, making it the perfect choice for those who suffer from mood swings occasional crankiness.

It’s almost impossible to feel a negative emotion while inhaling the delicious scent of earl grey tea. This is because a hot cup of earl grey essentially works like a personal essential oil diffuser. As you sip, the bergamot oil evaporates into the air and gets inhaled, leaving you feeling calm, less anxious, and stress free.

Plus, holding a comfortably hot mug in your hands and sipping tea is one of the best stress reducers I can think of! Who else loves taking a few precious moments to enjoy a good hot cup of tea?

4. Improved Digestion

Once again, the bergamot oil in earl grey tea swoops in to save the day! If you’re someone who suffers from frequent digestive upset like gas, bloating, cramping, constipation, or diarhhea, then earl grey tea may be the tea for you to help alleviate those symptoms.

Bergamot essential oil is known to be antispasmodic, meaning it soothes muscle cramping and spasming, even the kind associated with troublesome digestion. Simply sniffing bergamot oil or the aroma of earl grey tea can help alleviate nausea, though it isn’t recommended to have earl grey tea while pregnant.

5. Improved Dental Health

1-2 cups of earl grey tea a day is thought to prevents tooth decay and reduces the risk for cavities.

Earl grey tea also contains high amounts of a natural phenol and antioxidant called “catechin”, which is known to ward off infection in the mouth and the early stages of gingivitis.

6. Supports Heart Health

Several studies have confirmed that earl grey tea can reduce the risk for heart disease.

It was found that bergamot extract (aka the bergamot essential oil found in earl grey) can significantly lower bad cholesterol when consumed daily. This is due to its hydroxy methyl glutarly flavonones (HMGF) which are known to attack the proteins responsible for causing heart disease.

It is believed that the bergamot found in high quality earl grey tea (specifically one that ciontains HGMFs) can be just as effective as statin drugs. Not only does it reduce LDL levels (bad cholesterol), it also increases HDL (good cholesterol).

It’s also been proven to help reduce reduce body fat over a 12 week period
