Potential Health Benefits of Cascara Tea

by  on July 13, 2018

01. To provide a great source of antioxidants.

Found in different foods we commonly refer to as “superfoods,” antioxidants are vital to your body’s immune system and overall health. Their properties are known to protect delicate cells and cell membranes as well as reduce inflammation. And while fruits like pomegranates, blueberries, and cranberries are all known to contain high amounts of antioxidants, some people believe that cascara coffee cherries may beat them all! Reports show that cascara has a higher density of antioxidants, which means cascara tea may actually be a great source for one of the most important elements of the body.

02. To promote energy naturally.

In many ways, cascara is the perfect balance between coffee and tea. While its sweeter, fruity flavor definitely tastes different from the acidity taste of coffee, the fact that it comes from coffee beans – or in fact makes them – means that it’s caffeine structure is similar, just less. Studies show that cascara tea has about one quarter of the caffeine content compared to a regular cup of coffee. That means that if you’re feeling tired in the afternoon, but worried what might happen if you drink a cup of coffee too close to bedtime, cascara tea might be just want you need. Rather than drinking a sugary soda or processed energy drink, you can brew a fresh pot of cascara tea for instant energy support that won’t keep you up all night or make you even more tired when you crash from your sugar high.

03. To promote mental health and clarity.

While the high antioxidant content of cascara tea may help support your immune system, these little coffee husks can also promote your mental health. According to the British Journal of Nutrition, cascara coffee cherries support brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), an element that is vital for the brain’s clarity and ability to preserve memory functions. In fact, the study goes on to report that higher BDNF levels as supported by cascara may promote healthy aging of the brain, memory, and even feelings of goodwill and happiness. All that from one little cherry!
