Health Benefits of Tea

Health Benefits of Tea

        tea

When it comes to hot beverages, a cup of tea is right there alongside coffee in terms of popularity. Tea has been the go-to drink of a lot of people who needs to feel comforted but does not want the buzz regular coffee gives them. Of course, when it comes to health benefits, drinking tea has always been encouraged as they are found to have high levels of phytochemicals and polyphenols, which is a kind of antioxidant. If you are not into this soothing drink, consider the following perks which come with drinking this heavenly brew:

           Benefits

Protection from cancer – as mentioned, tea contains phytochemicals or substances which are known to fight cancer including colon, skin, breast, lung, stomach, liver, prostate, ovarian, pancreas, oral and oesophagus.

Improved exercise endurance – the catechin content of green tea extract has been found to boost the ability of the body to burn calories and fats. Because of this, there is better muscle endurance.

Reduce heart attack risk – aside from lowering risk of heart attack, drinking tea also contains properties which protect against degenerative and cardiovascular diseases.

Fight free radicals – free radicals or toxins can damage the body’s DNA. Good thing you can fight these toxins with tea as it is high in oxygen radical absorbance capacity. By ridding the body of these harmful toxins, you lower risk for serious illnesses such as cancer and heart disease.

Promote hydration – despite the fact it contains caffeine, a known diuretic, drinking tea actually keeps your body well hydrated. Of course, you need to keep your consumption to just below 6 cups per day.

Protection from UV rays – drinking green tea can actually protect your skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays. It possesses chemicals which can act as backup sunscreen.

Lower BMI – those who regularly drink tea were found to have smaller waistlines compared to those who does not. Researchers believe that this is probably because regular drinking of tea lowers risk for metabolic syndrome like diabetes and stroke.

Promote bone health – tea has been found to contain properties which improve bone strength and mineral density.

Promote dental health – it has been found that tea contains tannins and fluoride which are effective in keeping plaque at bay. With regular brushing and flossing, you can enjoy healthier gums and teeth while enjoying your favourite hot drink.

Bolster immune defence – once again, the anti-oxidants found in tea are effective in not only ridding your body of harmful toxins but they are also great at boosting your immune system.

Promote ideal weight – unlike other beverages, you can depend on tea not to contribute to weight gain. As long as you do not add milk or sweetener, you can keep those pounds off and even lose a few more especially if you replace sodas and sweetened drinks with tea.

Of course, there is nothing better than drinking your hot tea from a much loved printed mug or cup. You Cubic Promote offers a generous selection of branded mugs and cups.
