Rich in antioxidants

Antioxidants prevent premature aging of cells and protect our body from cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases.

They can be in different forms such as vitamins (vitamin C), mineral (zinc) or else constituting large families such as flavonoids or polyphenols.

It is thanks to its high concentration of anthocyanins that Butterfly Pea Flower is rich in antioxidants. Studies even show that its antioxidant activity is superior to that of vitamin C!

What is an anthocyanin? Anthocyanins or anthocyanins are coloring pigments of plants ranging from red to blue. Going back to the etymological meaning of anthocyanin, “anthos” means flower and dark blue “kuanos” in Greek.

It is thanks to the high concentration of anthocyanin that the butterfly pea flower has this beautiful blue color.

Improves the quality of the skin

It is thanks to the action of antioxidants that the collagen, naturally present in the skin, will be stimulated. Collagen is a protein that contributes to the regeneration of the skin and of elastin. Of course, we lose these proteins over time.

The antioxidants present in the herbal teas of Butterfly Pea Flowers will help reduce these effects, restore the skin to its tone, elasticity, density, reduce signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles and the general appearance of the skin will be improved.

Anti stress

Long used in Ayurvedic medicine, the Butterfly Pea Flower also called Clitoria Ternatea was widely recognized for its calming and soothing powers. It is believed to act on the body by reducing anxiety and stress thanks to its high content of tannins (polyphenols) and flavonoids (two powerful antioxidants).

Improves eyesight

According to several scientific studies, anthocyanins (found in butterfly pea flower) help improve the clarity and sharpness (visual acuity) of our vision by supplying blood to the small vessels in our eyes. By acting on rhodopsin also called retinal purple, anthocyanins have a beneficial effect on the retina of our eye. The anti-oxidants present in Butterfly Pea Flower also promote the regeneration of this essential protein for our eyesight.


Thanks to its antioxidant substances, Butterfly Pea Flower has nootropic activity, that is to say, it stimulates and regulates the cognitive functions of our brain. Thus, concentration, attention and memorization are markedly improved.

Helps fight fatigue

Toning and anti-fatigue, the Blue Butterfly Pea Flower (Clitoria Ternatea) helps maintain good shape on a daily basis. Indeed, by being full of vitamins and minerals, it helps reduce chronic fatigue in people who suffer from it. It’s ideal for long days when you need energy 😉

Improves hair growth

The bioflavonoids (called flavonoids or formerly vitamin P) contained in Butterfly Pea Flower help strengthen the hair fiber and improve the resistance of the hair by reducing its permeability.

They also provide good nutrients to the hair roots to make them less brittle and shinier.

In addition, they are said to reduce the appearance of gray hair and promote hair growth by stimulating the blood capillaries in the scalp.


Thanks to two substances which are taraxerol and taraxerone, the butterfly pea flower has analgesic effects which promote the reduction of inflammation.

You get it, Butterfly Pea Tea is all about beauty and goodness to you. A real little treasure that nature offers us.
