Flax tea rehydrated me when my hydration levels were so low I was told my blood test wasn’t showing any. This was prior to beginning the Ayurvedic approach to heal my 15 years of digestive issues which you can read about here.
Flax tea is also full of health benefits which you can read about here.
When we become dehydrated our digestive tract becomes like a hanging basket without a liner — the water we drink just goes back out again. Flax tea creates the ‘liner’ so that your digestive tract can hold on to the liquid and absorb it.
How to make flax tea
4 tablespoons organic golden flax seed
4 cups water
Bring the flax seed to the boil in a pan, then take off the heat and put the lid on. Leave overnight. In the morning simmer for 20 minutes then strain through a sieve.
Fill a mug 1/3 full with the flax tea then top up with hot water and mix well.
Flax tea can be stored in the fridge for 3 days.
As the flax tea cools down it becomes more jelly-like. When you use it the whole lot will try to fall into your mug, so pour gently and use a knife to prevent this.
