Drinking tea has many health benefits. Here’s how a daily cup of tea or two can be good for your health.
Tea contains antioxidants.
Antioxidants work to prevent the body’s version of rust and therefore help to keep us young and protect us from damage from pollution.
Tea has less caffeine than coffee.
Traditional teas have less than 50% caffeine compared to coffee. That means you can consume it without those pesky effects on your nervous system.
Tea may reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke.
A study published in 2016 that combined data from a host of earlier reports found a nearly 20% reduction in the risk of heart attack and a 35% reduced risk of stroke among those who drank one to three cups of green tea a day. 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 LDL cholesterol levels.
Tea may help protect your bones.
Recent animal studies have shown that green tea may prevent bone loss. Moringa, a plant native to South Asia, has been known for its medicinal properties and is now quickly becoming a mainstream superfood. With more calcium than milk and iron, vitamin A and K, moringa tea is a great addition to help keep those bones strong.
Tea may boost the immune system.
Studies have shown that tea can tune up immune cells, reaching their targets quicker. Ayurvedic practitioners have used holy basil or tulsi tea for centuries to help keep the immune system strong after injuries or illnesses, thanks to its antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
