The hydrangea plant is a flowering bush that is native to parts of Asia and the Americas. This particular plant is most distinctly recognized for its large round clusters of small flowers usually in colors of pink, blue, and purple. Although many use this plant merely for ornamental purposes, the roots of some species of hydrangea are used to make a beneficial tea that many are unaware of. Hydrangea tea is a popular drink in Japan, where it is known as ama-cha which means ‘sweet tea’.
The first and most beneficial use for hydrangea tea is its ability to tone and strengthen the kidneys and the urinary tract. This prevents harmful illnesses such as bladder infections, kidney stones, and more. Drinking hydrangea tea is also a good way to relieve symptoms of prostatitis. This is because this tea helps to increase the flow of urine which in turn can cleanse out the system. When the kidneys and urinary tract are in good health, the rest of the body will gain better health as well as a result.
For patients of multiple sclerosis, hydrangea tea is also beneficial since it has shown promise in aiding against many autoimmune disorders. Although it cannot help cure these types of diseases on its own, it can lessen many symptoms that are a result of them. Hydrangea tea is also high in vitamin and mineral content, containing many essential nutrients like magnesium and potassium which are necessary in a healthy diet.
