We are all constantly told that we should be cutting down on caffeine and coffee, in particular. But did you know that your regular cups of tea also come with their own incredible health benefits too?
And it’s not just green tea. Black tea can work its magic within your body – while you enjoy your favourite daily brew.
That’s the kind of news we like to read about!
All types of tea come packed with natural antioxidants. And we all need these as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle. Antioxidants help to decrease cell damage in the body and improve heart and overall health.
As a natural source of caffeine, green tea helps to increase concentration and general efficiency of the brain. Alongside this, it contains the compound amino acid L-theanine. This element helps to reduce anxiety and increase dopamine in the brain which gives us a more stable brain function improvement than a quick coffee fix.
High cholesterol can lead to a build-up in the arteries which can then go on to lead to heart disease or even heart failure. And a huge proportion of the population suffers from elevated cholesterol at some point. Drinking tea on the regular is said to help to reduce this, which in turn leads to better heart health as well as improving on issues, such as obesity.
The antioxidants that you find in green tea are great to help with anti-ageing of the skin, helping you maintain a youthful complexion. Green tea also contains specific molecules that help to reduce oily skin, resulting in a smoother overall appearance. Green tea is also great for acne as it helps to get rid of blemishes and redness due to its wealth of anti-inflammatory properties.
We need good bacteria in our gut to help it to function properly. But bad bacteria in the gut can lead to bowel and other diseases - as well as weight gain, obesity and other issues, such as IBS.
Drinking tea regularly is said to improve the growth of the good bacteria in your gut and put a halt on the bad bacteria. This is increased by the antimicrobial properties naturally found in tea.
Do you suffer from painful menstrual cramps each month? Did you know that a couple of cups of tea a day could help ease the aches?
