Bael Fruit Tea - Everything you need to know!

Bael Fruit Tea is also known as Japanese Bitter Orange, Stone Apple, Wood Apple, and has a botanical name of Aegle marmelos L. Quite an interesting fruit in that it can be described as having a taste that is 'sweet, aromatic and pleasant, although tangy and slightly astringent', along with having a range of reported benefits too.

Bael fruit contains Vitamin C, Protein, Beta-carotene, Thiamine, and Ribovlavin.

Lets take a closer look at Bael Fruit!


Reducing blood cholesterol levels is a reported properly in Bael Fruit due to the Triglycerides, Serum and Tissue Lipid Profiles contained within. Probably one of the tastier ways available to help keep cholesterol under control!


Within India and Thailand, the juice extracted from Bael (normally in 'tea' form as it's difficult to extract otherwise) is traditionally used to help against infections. These days we know that this is due to Eugenol and Cuminaldehyde found within this fruit.

Blood Sugar and Heart Health

If you can find some Ghee, try mixing bael tea with this and drinking daily to help prevent heart related diseases. Actually, definitely look into Ghee as a butter alternative if you haven't heard of it before - as 'The short chain fatty acids present in ghee are metabolized and used for energy immediately by the liver and resist being stored in the body as fat.' A reported reduction in blood sugar levels of 54% can be attained using this method.

Pancreas stimulation also occurs - promoting the  production of insulin, which can further help to maintain blood sugar.
