Herbs to beat the Heat
Its that time of the year when temperatures are rising and it’s the best time to be outdoors and enjoy the sun. Usually, we get engrossed in enjoying the warm and beautiful weather outside and forget about hydrating ourselves. Two issues we often face in the summer as we sweat more is loss of water (dehydration) and loss of electrolytes. There are several herbal infusions that can help you stay cool and calm while enjoying the warm summer sun outdoors.
Herbs like peppermint and hibiscus are the cooling herbs and help you to lower the body temperature. Maintaining a lower body core temperature helps prevent heat stroke, exhaustion and even muscle cramping. Another great herb to beat the heat is raspberry leaf; not only is it refreshing, but it is also an adaptogenic herb that contains magnesium, potassium, iron, B-complex vitamins and vitamin C to help replace electrolytes.
Dandelion is also a great herb to consume during summer, it is a circulatory aid that contains potassium, iron, and B-complex vitamins as well as vitamin C.
