Enjoying a hot cup of tea to warm you up when you come in out of the cold is not only comforting, it is good for your health! So, what is it about tea that makes drinking it so good for you? The answer lies in antioxidants. Antioxidants and related polyphenols are compounds found in many foods and herbs that combat the effects of oxidation, hence the name anti-oxidant. True teas provide an excellent natural source of antioxidants - with the added benefit of delicious flavor!
Tea…is there anything it can’t do?
Let’s see, here are some ways that tea can be beneficial to your health:
•Tea is packed with antioxidants. These help keep our bodies “young” and protect them from toxins.
•It has less caffeine than coffee. (The kinds that do contain caffeine) usually contain about 50% less than coffee which means you can drink it without affecting your nervous system.
•Research shows a correlation between tea and heart health. A recent study says people who drink tea have a 20% less chance of having a stroke or heart attack than those who don’t.
•It can help with weight loss, especially when paired with a well-balanced diet and exercise. Tea is usually calorie-free, and it can give you energy and cause your body to burn more calories throughout the day.
•It’s an immune system booster. Studies show that tea helps immune cells reach their targets more quickly.
