Labrador Tea: The Top 5 Greatest Benefits

Labrador tea infusion is one of the healthiest beverages and is known for 5 principal benefits. It is packed with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. This includes better cell regeneration, weight loss, lower risk of cancer and other impressive benefits.

Below are 5 health benefits of Labrador tea supported by studies. There are many more than 5 but we will focus on these for today.

1. Labrador Tea Contains Bioactive Components That Improve General Health

This is more than just a drink. Many of the plant components in Labrador tea leaves are found in the final infusion, which contains large amounts of important nutrients [1]

These leaves contain many natural antioxidants that help prevent cell damage and offer other benefits. Thus, antioxidants can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, thereby protecting cells and molecules from damage. We know that these free radicals play a role in aging and all kinds of diseases.

Labrador tea contains many flavonoids. These have several important benefits for human health such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant [3], anti-carcinogenic and anti-atherogenic properties.

The presence of tannin, gallic acid and vitexin in significant amounts in this plant suggests that it could have a wide spectrum of pharmacological activity.[4]

The plant also contains small amounts of minerals important for health.

Labrador tea is a great source of powerful antioxidants. So it makes sense that it can lower your risk of cancer, which seems to be the case. The twigs of the plant are also effective against cancer cells like carcinoma of the lungs and colon.

3. Good For Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is a disease that has reached epidemic proportions in recent decades. It now affects approximately 400 million people worldwide. This disease involves high blood sugar against the background of insulin resistance or an inability to produce insulin.

Studies show that Labrador tea can improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar. Recent ethnobotanical data has shown that the plant has the potential to treat the symptoms of type II diabetes [6] 

This plant is said to be very good against diabetes and obesity, which is why Ouchfoun et al. write:

Est-ce que le thé du labrador, comme les autres thés, empêche l’absorption du fer? Si oui, peut-on le prendre à 1h d’intervalle avec les plantes qui favorisent le fer? Quelle quantité par jour recommandez-vous?
