If we had a dollar for every time someone asked “Excuse me, but is there caffeine in your TinyTea, because I’m so full of energy and it doesn’t make sense!” – well, we would be rolling in it.
First thing is first, it is astonishing to know how few people understand what it feels like to receive true energy from the body. From a TCM perspective, the digestive system is largely responsible for our energy levels – or lack thereof.
And considering nearly every second person is laden with gut issues, no wonder everyone is running on empty.
When there is nothing in your tank to operate on, you’re exhausted and running on very low essence.
Hence those to consume our TinyTea often experience a huge boost in energy levels. And of course, this surprises them greatly. Surely the Digestive Herbs (formerly TinyTea) must have some hidden caffeine to account for the energy change? Well, that’s what we are constantly asked.
Not at all. All these herbs do is hand you a correctly functioning digestive system which in turn, hands you the appropriate amount of energy you SHOULD be experiencing.
We’ve asked TCM Dr. Lauren Curtain to break it down further in TCM talk.
“In Chinese medicine, our digestive system is the foundation of our health. This is where we extract and absorb all the essential nutrients we need for our health to be thriving in all areas, especially our energy levels! When energy is low, we can see this as a deficiency of Qi, our life force. This can be due to many different reasons, the most common ones being not eating enough nutrient-dense foods or not being able to absorb the nutrients effectively. This is where our Digestive Herbs come in! This blend specifically focuses on strengthening the key organs involved in digestion in Chinese medicine. When these organs are strong, they are able to properly absorb the nutrients necessary for ample energy. Specific herbs are also included in this blend to clear out old accumulated waste that can dampen our energy levels and vitality. The combined effect of nourishing our digestive system to produce lots of energy whilst also clearing out the old waste is the perfect combination for boosting up energy levels for thriving health over all”.
Yours in energy,
