Jain believes strongly in the effects of tea (which we, of course, love. It's why we created Spartan Tea.) He shared a favorite tea recipe of his, specifically for gut health.

Jain's Gut Health Tea Recipe:

— Grated, fresh turmeric

— Grated, fresh ginger

— Freshly-grounded cardamom

— Freshly-grounded cloves

— Freshly-grounded black pepper

— Freshly-grounded fennel seeds

"Let it boil in the water for five to 10 minutes," Jain says. "I put a small amount of oat milk on top and drink my tea. Sometimes I also boil with black tea, which I put in for 2 minutes after my fresh brew above."
