Restless Leg Syndrome Tea
I’m not talking about that feeling you get when you hear the intro to The Bee Gees’ Stayin’ Alive, this is more akin to REO Speedwagon’s Can’t Fight This Feeling because sufferers will know exactly what I’m referring to. It’s a feeling that has been described as an unpleasant tickle that won’t stop and even like there’s fizzy water inside your legs!
Sensations typically begin or intensify when relaxing and are usually worse in the evening. In many cases symptoms only occur in the evening, especially when trying to fall asleep. For some people this can be a mild annoyance while for others it can be intolerable, causing disruption to sleep and impairment to their quality of life.
There is a natural way to ease the discomfort, however, Restless Leg Syndrome Tea with its specific blend of beneficial herbs can help you relax and not only drift off to sleep, but promote quality sleep.
Yarrow is naturally analgesic, antispasmodic and good for neuralgia. Furthermore, it is an anti-inflammatory agent which makes it a powerful ally for restless leg syndrome relief.
Peppermint has analgesic, antispasmodic and cooling properties. It is excellent for restless leg syndrome because it is ideal for relieving muscle aches and pains.
Oatstraw is from the grasses that produce the oatmeal you eat for breakfast and like the oats themselves helps to lower cholesterol and improve circulation, making your blood vessels more elastic and helping in the relief of restless leg syndrome. It is also rich in calcium and B vitamins making it a wonderful ally for women because it strengthens bones and soothes the nervous system.
As with most teas, mint tea can have a few minor side effects. This tea should be avoided by people with allergies to its ingredients and sufferers of acid reflux. Pregnant women should monitor and limit their intake of mint tea and should also avoid drinking mint tea when breastfeeding since peppermint oils can cause breathing problems in infants and children.
