Ten health benefits of tea

9 September 2016  |  Admin

No-one can deny the joy a good brew brings but did you know tea isn’t just a delicious beverage? Here are 10 health benefits of tea that you probably didn’t know.

Tea rehydrates 

Tea rehydrates the body, unlike coffee, despite the caffeine content. Did you know that a cup of tea on a warm day can actually be a real thirst quencher? Try it for yourself!

Tea helps bones

Green tea has been found to improve bone mineral density and strength. So ditch your evening pint of milk for a nice green tea to build stronger bones, who knew?!

Tea is an anti-inflammatory

Tea has anti-inflammatory compounds, so say goodbye to those aching muscles with a good old cuppa. Okay, so tea isn’t a miracle cure, but all these health benefits have been backed up by science.

Tea helps fight fat

Green tea increases fat burning and improves physical performance. So swap your pre-workout protein shake for a cup of green tea. You might get some odd looks if you pull a tea pot out of your gym bag in the changing room though.

Tea can improve memory

Tea can increase your memory, focus and concentration. This can also reduce the risk of dementia. People often turn to strong coffee for that extra bit of alertness but tea can be just as effective.

Tea can reduce cholesterol levels

Pu-erh tea has been known to reduce LDL cholesterol levels. There have even been some cases where extensive use of pu-erh has resulted in a drop of nearly 100 points in cholesterol levels. This is just one of the many health benefits associated with pu-erh tea.

Tea can make you look younger

White tea can help you look younger. It contains a high polyphenol count which keeps your skin looking youthful. Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s tea…

Tea can reduce stress

Black tea can help reduce stress levels resulting in you being healthier in body and mind.

Tea helps you relax

Chamomile tea helps you relax at the end of a long day. A cup before bed will almost guarantee a good night’s sleep.

Tea can fight allergies

Nettle tea can help with allergies. It contains antihistamine properties similar to over-the counter-medicines.

These are just some of the health benefits associated with drinking tea. There are many different flavours and varieties, so there’s one for everyone.
