Butterfly pea flower, or Clitoria ternatea, is a Southeast Asian plant that is often used to make herbal tea. It is also sometimes called blue clitoria ternatea or butterfly pea tea.
It is a perennial herbaceous plant in the plant family Fabaceae. Because this plant has a lot of healthy antioxidants, people take extracts of it to fight free radicals and inflammation and improve their health as a whole.
Butterfly pea flower tea is also used to make people look better by making their skin, hair, and eyes look healthier.
Lastly, the plant is used as a natural dye because it turns a deep blue or purple color when steamed in hot water. It is sometimes mixed with water and something acidic, like lemon, which changes the pH of the water and makes it turn from blue to violet.
This plant is special in many ways, but its ability to change is a big part of why it has become so popular in recent years. When steeped in boiling water, the Butterfly Pea flower turns a bright blue, which is different from other teas. When lemon or another acid is added to the tea, it changes from blue to a bright violet color. The lemon changes the tea's pH level, which makes it change color.
Because of this unique quality, Butterfly Pea has become very popular all over the world. It has even become a standard ingredient for professional mixologists and chefs, who use it to surprise customers with drinks that change color on their own or with brightly colored foods.
◉ Antioxidant and anti inflammatory - The ternatins in the flowers of the butterfly pea are very powerful antioxidants. The bright color comes from ternatins, which have also been shown to reduce inflammation and stop cancer cells from growing. It also has a lot of other healing antioxidants, like kaempferol, which is known to fight cancer cells, p-coumarin acid, which is known to be anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and antiviral, and Delphinidin-3,5-glucoside, which is known to boost immune function and fight cancer cells. There are many health benefits to having these antioxidants in your body.
◉ Brain Boost - Butterfly Pea flower is best known in the Indian Ayurvedic medical system as a brain herb. It has been used for hundreds of years to improve memory, treat anxiety, depression, ADHD, stress, Alzheimer's, and just give the brain a general boost. The active compound acetylcholine, which helps you remember things and is important for brain health, is responsible for these effects. Studies show that drinking this flower tea makes the symptoms of ulcers caused by stress go away and helps with the symptoms of many brain function disorders.
◉ Improve Eyesight - Butterfly Pea tea is not only good for the brain, but it is also good for our eyes. Anthocyanin, an antioxidant found in the flower, has been shown to make more blood flow to the eyes. This helps with glaucoma, retinal damage, blurry vision, and tired eyes. It has also been shown to improve your night vision and keep your eyes from getting hurt.
◉ Reproductive Health - Hippocrates, an ancient Greek doctor, looked at how this plant looked and decided that it was good for women's health because it looks like a woman's clitoris, which is why it is called Clitoria Ternatea. Butterfly Pea tea has been shown to help with problems with menstruation or vaginal discharge, as well as with sperm production and as a strong aphrodisiac. This fits with what he thought would happen. In Indian villages, pregnant women often wear the roots of the Butterfly Pea, or Aparajita, on their arms or around their waists to help them give birth safely.
