Health Benefits of Butterfly Pea Flower


Clitoria Ternate, Blue Ternate, is a native invasive species with incredible health benefits. Rich in antioxidants and used for centuries in Ayurvedic and folk medicine, this beautiful blue flower is also used by the food industry as a dye.

Blue Ternate is a pasture legume used ornamentally in many parts of the world. C. Ternate is drought-tolerant once established and adapts readily to heavy clay soils, contributing to its invasive status, and is grown for erosion control and animal feed.

There are many health benefits associated with Blue Ternate; here are a few.


Fights against different cancers. Butterfly pea flowers contain chemicals that have anti-cancer properties. It's believed that consuming Butterfly pea tea may have a role in fighting cancer because its chemicals enter those cells and inhibit their growth.


Boosts Brain health. Animal studies have shown that regular use of the extract boosts levels of acetylcholine in their brains. High levels of acetylcholine in the brain decreases age-associated memory loss and improves thinking abilities.

Anti-inflammatory properties. Consumption of blue butterfly pea tea can reduce swelling in the body. It can reduce body pain, migraine, and swelling due to wounds and headaches.

Improves skin health. Blue butterfly pea is rich in antioxidants. It can slow down the skin aging process, prevent premature aging, and improve overall skin tone and texture.


Improves hair health. Butterfly pea nourishes hair follicles, promotes hair growth, reduces hair fall, and slows down the greying of hair. Butterfly pea is used in shampoos, conditioners, and other hair products.


Helps in digestion. The antioxidants in blue butterfly pea tea can help relax the stomach muscles, aiding digestion. It also has anthelminthic property; it helps prevent the growth of worms in the gut.

Helps regulate blood sugar levels. Butterfly pea flower tea can help regulate the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream, thus regulating blood sugar levels.

Consuming Blue Ternate regularly can improve the overall health of the brain, skin, hair, and body. I'm not offering any medical advice. Speak with your doctor before using any natural product.
