Even as all people keep loving their daily dose of coffee, and coffee is becoming a ritual in the life of the modern person, we’d like to factor your interest towards tea.
Yes, tea, the beverage which could soothe you when all you wish for is to relax or wake you up when you just need that additional push. Essentially, tea is superb and you should definitely consume it more often.
With more than 4,000 years of history, tea is a millenary and mystical drink characterized by a unique aroma and flavor that are framed by an extensive list of health benefits. All these factors have influenced that the drink has conquered many palates and crossed many frontiers for so long.
It is one of the most consumed beverages in the world (half of the population drinks it every day) and has hundreds of benefits. Each type of tea is “designed” for a different disease or ailment.
And today, in this article, we will talk about why you should treat yourself with a cup of tea.
It is proven that drinking between 3 and 4 cups of tea per day helps eliminate all the toxins that accumulate in the body and are responsible for diseases. Green and red tea are ideal for this. The first, because it reduces the excess of liquid (drink on an empty stomach or for breakfast) and the second, because it speeds up the metabolism to eliminate what “does not serve” your body (drink after lunch or dinner).
Improves physical performance:
Green tea especially, has exciting and invigorating actions, as well as stimulants, being wonderful to “fight” against the fatigue that afflicts us by the large number of obligations we have daily. It is recommended to prevent cardiovascular diseases or arteriosclerosis.
Helps in mental concentration:
Tea is included in the group of the best drinks that allow you to be active, study, concentrate and improve your memory. Other than tea some of the following foods have the same effect such as: oatmeal, salmon, cranberries, avocado and chocolate. If you have to take an exam, for example, do not hesitate to consume any of them.
Tea has the power to calm you down
Some research has suggested that valerian root tea could act as a safe and effective mild natural sleep aid. In a German study, 202 adults either took valerian extract or a prescription anti-anxiety drug. The people who took valerian extract reported “equal improvement in sleep quality, feeling rested and how long they slept as those taking the prescription drug.”
It could relieve your seasonal allergies before you even get them
If you’re suffering from seasonal allergies you may want to start your day with a cup of nettle leaf tea. While more research still needs to be done, a preliminary study followed 69 people and found that freeze-dried nettle leaf could “slightly improve allergy symptoms.”
Tea compounds are able to reduce the growth and production of bacteria that then become decayed in the teeth. It also serves to reduce plaque.
Improves the immune system:
Recent studies compare the levels of immune activity of those who drink coffee in relation to those who consume tea and the latter are less likely to get diseases caused by viruses or bacteria, such as colds.
