Why You Should Drink Tea Everyday

Drink Tea

In China, people enjoy endless cups of steaming hot tea at home and even carry a thermos with them wherever they go. They believe that tea aids digestion and boosts brain power.

In fact, monks have relied on the power of green tea to stay awake and focus during long hours of meditation. It’s no wonder tea drinking has become an indispensable part of their lifestyle. Science is revealing more health benefits of tea. And today, I want to share some with you…

 

Five reasons tea is healthy and awesome

1. Tea has anti-ageing properties

Tea is a great source of the antioxidants catechins that help fight the ageing process. The catechins decrease oxidative stress, the underlying cause of ageing.

2. Tea is an immune-booster

The polyphenols in tea  can increase the number of “regulatory T cells”  important for immune function.

3. Tea is a fat-burner

Tea has the potential to boost your metabolism and help you lose weight. Researchers in the Netherlands found that people who drink tea regularly have lower Body Mass Indexes (BMIs) and less body fat than people who don’t.

4. Tea helps enhance your focus and boost your mood

Tea can help you stay focused as well as improve our performance. It has psychological benefits including enhanced creativity and improved work performance. 

5. Tea can help strengthen your bones 

According to an in-depth review from Texas Tech University, tea may be protective against osteoporosis. The polyphenols in tea can help build stronger bones by increasing bone formation and bone mass. The researchers found that those over 50 who drank tea has a 30% reduced risk in hip fractures.

Here’s to a hot cup of tea!
