Ethical Product Review: Yogi Organic Choco Tea – 17 Bags

4 mins read

Pure South American Cocoa blended with exotic spices from the Far East create this wonderful tea a very distinct taste which warms the body and the spirit.

The teabags are biodegradable made from abaca (a type of banana) and have no staple, with a 100% certified organic cotton string and FSC certified paper tag. The envelopes each teabag comes in are made from FSC certified paper but have been heat sealed using small amounts of plastic, however they are still recyclable.

Yogi Organic Choco Tea Review:

This is a product I will recommend!
Although the box and the label both say that the tea is organic it doesn’t say which country certifies it organic, so you have to take their word on this, but according to Yogi’s web site it is certified organic by Austria’s Bio Austria.

The Benefits:
The organic teabags make this product great for the environment plus the packaging is very earth friendly. All of the ingredients used in this product are 100% organic, so you don’t have to worry about any goverment mandated standards.

A lot of people also get bad breath, one of the reasons you get bad breath is from the food you eat. The organic ingredients found in this product will greatly improve your breath. This product will also aid in digestion.

This product also has many other benefits such as building up the immune system, and improving your sleep.

The Negatives:
I can’t say there are any negatives because the negatives outweigh the positives by far.

One of the top benefits of this product is it will improve your breath, which in turn will lead to better relationships, but you can’t really tell people you are drinking organic tea because your breath stinks. I guess you could replace your coffee with this tea, and it will aide in digestion, but coffee has a much stronger calming effect then tea.

I would recommend to the people at Yogi Tea to change the box from white to brown so that it is earth friendly.

History of Opioids
Opioids are naturally occurring substances found in the opium poppy. The word is derived from the poppy’s scientific name, which is opium. There are various chemicals found in this plant, as well as a wide range of addictive drugs, such as morphine and heroin, that come from its extracts.

The poppy has been cultivated in many regions, including Europe, Asia, United States and Canada. It is a major cash crop for many nations, including France and China. It is also a source of materials for the pharmaceutical industry.

The origin of the word “opium” comes from Greek “opion”, however it was used to describe both milk and white juice of the poppy plant. The Arabic word “al-Id” was used to describe its juice. The Latin word “Papaverea” was used as a description for the whole plant.

Central Nervous System:
Opioids interact with the Central Nervous System (CNS) receptors, which are responsible for sensory perception and emotional response. The chemicals block these specific neurons, thus resulting in the depression and excitation of the central nervous system. The chemical interaction has an effect on the perception of pain, which leads to a reduction in feelings of pain.

Endogenous and Exogenous:
Opioids are categorized as either endogenous or exogenous. These chemicals often interact with the receptors inside the body’s central and peripheral nervous system.

Endogenous chemicals or those produced in the body include endorphins and the anandamide. Whereas the exogenous include naturally occurring substances found in the opium poppy. It also includes manmade substances that are synthesized in the laboratory by chemists.

Use and Abuse:
Both types of substances can lead to addiction. Abuse usually starts when an individual uses more than the recommended dosage of a drug. When an individual is overdosed, it may affect the respiratory system, resulting in depression. There may be different signs of an overdose including blurry vision, shallow breathing, nausea and constipation.

However, opioids can also be abused when a person takes both prescription medications and illegal drugs. This type of addiction is not uncommon considering doctors prescribe painkillers to treat pain. A person may also resort to illegal drugs to supplement the painkiller dosage.

As with any substance, addiction is possible when a person takes the substance more than the recommended dosage. Overdosing on opioids can also lead to addiction, which may occur even when the individual does not abuse the drug. It still becomes addictive when a person takes a certain amount of the drug for an extended period of time.

The change is also dependent on the size of the person taking the medication in relation to the prescribed dosage. For example, if the doses are increased for a substantially shorter person with a smaller weight, the effects of the prescription will be stronger. This is due to the weight of the individual, indicating that a higher dosage is needed to relieve the pain.

According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), some of the common signs that an individual may be addicted to an opioid include:

Drug dependency: Individuals who take opioids over a long period of time will become dependent on the drug to treat their pain. There may also be side effects and symptoms associated with withdrawal, which may include vomiting, sweating and insomnia.

Physical dependence: Continuous use of the substance will cause a physical dependence on the drug. Individuals who are dependent on opioids also have an increased tolerance to the drug. This means that the drug will have to be taken in greater amounts for the same level of pain treatment.

Tolerance: There is an increased tolerance to the effects of the drugs. This is especially the case for those taking opiates and opioids.

Repeated use and withdrawal: The person will continue to use the drug and may cycle through phases of prolonged use and withdrawal. Then, the person will go back to using the drug once the withdrawal symptoms subside. However, there is no guarantee that the person will continue to use the drug once they are dependent on the medication.

Secrecy: A person who is addicted to the drug will be particularly secretive about his or her use of the medications.

Withdrawal symptoms: When you stop taking the drug after long-term use, you may experience withdrawal symptoms, especially if you are dependent on the drug. These include nausea, sweating, chills and lack of sleep.

A person who is only physically dependent on the drug may not show any of these signs of addiction. In simple terms, physical dependence just means you need chemicals to relieve the pain; it may be the concentrated form of a medication, such as morphine or Actiq.
