I Drink Tea Everyday...And Here's Why You Should Too!
I am a big tea drinker, hot tea, not iced. I love tea, and I drink it all day long. I find no need to add sugar, or anything else to my teas. But one of my favorites is naturally sweet, and extra yummy. My preferred tea brand is Tea Forte, but drink whatever works for you.
I used to only drink tea when I was sick, to soothe a sore throat, and warm me up. But as I got older, I started to learn about all of the health benefits of drinking tea. There are many types of teas, and they all have their own health benefits. There is green tea, white tea, black, and herbal tea just to name a few.
Green tea seems to have the most health benefits, and can help boost your metabolism. Green has antioxidants and nutrients. It is known to improve brain function, aid in fat loss, help in preventing certain types of cancer, and reduce risk of Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's. Green tea also improves dental and cardiovascular health, and reduces risks of Type 2 Diabetes.
White tea also contains antioxidants, more in fact than green tea. The tea improves cardiovascular health, lowers cholesterol, improves weight loss, and reduces risk of cancer. Black tea, much like green and white tea, aids in cardiovascular health, immune system, and reduces cancer risk. It also helps with skin, hair, and digestive problems.
Herbal teas come in many varieties. One of my favorites is African Solstice, which is absolutely delicious. The benefits of herbal teas are dependent on the type of tea you choose. Some of the most common herbal teas are peppermints, rosehip, ginger, and chamomile, and each of these have their own benefits. Peppermint tea will help with gas and bloating, while ginger helps with nausea. Chamomile helps you sleep, and aids in recovery with cold and fever. Rosehip tea helps boost your immune system, with its high vitamin C content. It also helps skin and adrenal functioning.
So I bet you are asking yourself right now, why haven't you been drinking tea all this time. It is never too late to start reaping those benefits. Drink up!
