Egyptian Red can be consumed hot or cold. As an iced tea, the infusion is known to quench the thirst quite effectively. It is often recommended as an alternative to artificially made commercial "sport drinks" that are marketed to physically active individuals. Egyptian Red's ability to cool the body is well documented by cultures that include it in their diet or medicinal practices. This benefit is probably associated with the diuretic properties of Egyptian Red, a property that helps in the excretion of excess fluids from the body, and the ability to replace electrolytes and essential vitamins and minerals.
Have a cold glass of Egyptian Red after exercise or workouts and see the benefits for yourself.
