When it comes to tea, green is definitely the new black.

When the humble soybean undergoes fermentation, it transforms into a literal lifesaver. One Japanese study found that when fermented soy products, like miso or natto, were eaten regularly, participants had a 10% lower mortality risk. This result may be due to its high levels of antioxidants, potassium, fiber, isoflavones, and vitamin K2, which all can reduce certain types of cancer, among other benefits.
The fermentation process also creates probiotics, beneficial bacteria that can aid digestion, reduce bloating, and help your body better absorb the nutrients it needs to thrive.
Fermented Brown Rice
✓ boosts energy ✓ reduces stress and fatigue ✓ promotes gut health and reduces bloating
Soaking cooked brown rice in water for 12-16 hours creates a fermentation process that increases the bioavailability of essential nutrients. One study found that this grain helped reduce stress and fatigue, potentially due to the resulting high concentration of B12.
And, similar to fermented soybeans, fermented brown rice is rich in probiotics which aid digestion, reduce constipation, and keep bloating at bay.
Young Barley Grass

While it might be an acquired taste, the benefits are definitely worth it: this green grass is ripe with health-boosting nutrients that help protect you from free radicals, give your immunity a big boost, and speed up metabolism.

Vitamin C is also a known antioxidant, helping the body fight off free radicals and prevent chronic conditions. Last but not least, it may also promote brain health by protecting against cognitive impairment as you age.

This woody vine is native to Asia, Africa, and Australia and is widely used in traditional medicine to lower blood glucose levels by preventing the absorption of sugar molecules in the intestine (its name means “sugar destroyer” in Hindi).
It also combats sugar cravings by suppressing the ability to taste sweetness—one study showed that those who took Gymnema Sylvestre before a meal were less likely to indulge in sugary foods as its gymnemic acids block the tongue’s sugar receptors. Other studies have shown that the herb also helps control weight gain and prevent obesity. Last but not least, Gymnema Sylvestre may also promote digestion and improve cholesterol levels to help suppress heart disease.
