There are Many Benefits of Tea
I am a tea drinker. I never been able to “stomach” coffee because it gave me heartburn. Thus, I became a tea drinker. There are many benefits of tea from cardiovascular to digestion. Plus, it it full of antioxidants.
Latest Research Shows Benefits for People who Have Diabetes
In Youngevity’s latest blog, “WHY GOOD HEALTH IS EVERYBODY’S CUP OF TEA,” talks about Chinese research found “striking results,” It “involved over a million adults from eight different countries.” Their studies “showed a 17% decline in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes over a decade for people who drink at least four cups daily of black, green, or Oolong tea.” If less there was less tea intake, the the percentage dropped.
Another Study in UK Shows that Black Tea Decreases Mortality Risks
Also, Youngevity’s blog post there is another recent study done in the UK. “It shows that a minimum of two cups of black tea daily decreases mortality risk from 9% to 13% for people in the UK over 14 years.”
Tea has Antioxidant Benefits
I know that tea has may antioxidants. Youngevity’s blog points out that “Polyphenols are plant compounds with antioxidant properties that may be at the heart of tea’s healing powers.” Also antioxidants helps fight “free radicals” that give your body inflammation. For instance, an apple browns when it is exposed to the air for a long period of time. This is what free radicals are doing to your internal system. They are in a way creating “rust.”
I decided to look into the benefits of tea more. According to Today.com, here are some more benefits:
More Antixodiant Benefits
Today.com indicates the antioxidants “help to keep us young and protect us from damage from pollution. Load up on antioxidants with a white tea, which is less processed than black or green tea.”
Tea Has Less Caffeine
They indicate that tea is “approximately 50% less caffeine than coffee.” This may be why coffee always gave me the jitters. I prefer to drink tea. Plus, coffee dehydrated me.
Tea May Reduce Stroke or Cardiovascular Events
Today.com found that tea nearly reduces “20% ” of “risk of heart attack and a 35% reduced risk of stroke among those who drank 1 to 3 cups of green tea a day.” They go on to report, “Those who drank four or more cups of green tea daily had a 32% reduction in the risk of having a heart attack and lower levels of LDL cholesterol.”
Tea May Help with Weight Loss
The author from Today.com could not find “much evidence,” that drinking tea aids in weight loss. They did indicate “may be large amounts in pill form.” I did not consume pills of tea, but tea has helped me, because it flavored my water. It helped me to consume more water that aided in my weight release.
Tea May Prevent Bone Loss
Today.com found data showing that Moringa Tea, a superfood has calcium, iron, vitamin A and K. All of these nutrients are know for fortifying your bones.
Tea May Keep Your Smile Bright
I found this interesting. The author from Today.com indicates that “good pH levels” that “may help you have less tooth erosion.” I know that I have better dental checkup after stopping drinking sodas. At that time I exchanged soda with tea. Hmmm…
Tea May Boost Your Immune System
They found studies have shown that “tea can tune up immune cells so they reach their targets quicker.” Ayurvedic practitioners have used holy basil or tulsi tea “to help keep the immune system strong after injuries or illnesses thanks to its antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties.” I know that antioxidants also help the immune system battle inflammation by fighting free radicals too.
Tea May Help You with Your Battle Cancer
Today.com indicates that “Studies are mixed.” They do encourage tea drinking during your cancer treatments. I believe that green tea can help with the pH levels again. This may be an idea where the the studies are mixed. There are people who are in two camps in this issue.
Herbal Teas Can Soothe Your Digestive system
I have found that Ginger teas have helped me. Today.com says, “Chamomile can be good for people with irritable bowel syndrome because it is an antispasmodic,’ Bonci said. ‘And ginger teas can calm nausea.’”
Tea Can be Calorie Free
I already shared that drinking tea helped flavored my water. Today.com also point out that tea is great way to flavor your water without calories. If you want to keep calories down, don’t add anything to your tea too.
