Has your memory taken a dive over the last couple of years? If the answer is yes then you are not alone, the global pandemic has given many of us an element of brain fog. Now a new Tea Advisory Panel (TAP) research review – Herbal Infusions and Women’s Health – presents emerging evidence that certain herbal teas – German Chamomile, Rosehip and Spearmint - could help manage several key issues for women from poor quality sleep to memory loss and debilitating PMS.

Over the past two years the many lockdowns, repetitive routines and quarantines mean that our memory function has not had to work to take in new experiences, hence our current state of brain fog. Moreover, medical experts say if you have had Covid-19 it can have a negative impact upon your memory for up to nine months afterwards.

GP, study co-author and guest advisor to the independent health and wellbeing group, Tea Advisory Panel (TAP)  Dr Gill Jenkins explains: “Most of us have suffered from a lack of social connection over the past couple of years, and because of the dearth of new experiences, events and dates our memories may have become more muddled. There has also been a sharp increase in levels of anxiety among women.” She adds: “This new study examines several women’s health issues and finds compelling evidence that drinking herbal teas - German Chamomile, Rosehip and Spearmint - can boost sleep quality and in turn help memory function and low mood.”

The TAP Herbal Infusions and Women’s Health Research Review also found other evidence of the health benefits of drinking herbal tea, including:

  • Reduced stress levels
  • Improved attention span
  • Reduced inflammation
