Why You Should Drink More Tea


Did you know that when you visit your local tea house to enjoy a cup of black, green, white, or oolong tea, that you’re getting more than a delicious beverage? In addition to coming in a wide range of flavors that can be consumed hot or cold, tea can offer you the following health benefits:

Less Caffeine

If you love having a cup of coffee each morning but dislike how it can make you feel jittery, then tea from a tea house may be a good alternative to try. Tea contains caffeine, so you can still enjoy some of the effects of coffee when you choose this beverage. However, tea only has about half as much caffeine as coffee does, which means that it will have less of an effect on your nervous system.

More Antioxidants

Many teas are high in a type of microscopic compound called an antioxidant. Free radicals, which are unstable molecules, can cause damage to your cells and lead to diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Parkinson’s. Antioxidants can promote good health in many ways by managing the numbers of free radicals in your body.

Disease Prevention

Several studies have shown that consuming large amounts of tea can help reduce your risk of developing some diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Also, drinking enough tea can also help prevent osteoporosis by increasing your bone density. Additionally, because the antioxidants in tea can help prevent heart disease, consuming this drink may reduce your risk of stroke and heart attack.

Weight Loss

Some research has shown that drinking tea may help with weight management. Because carrying extra pounds on your body has been shown to increase your risk for conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, cancer, osteoarthritis, and sleep apnea, managing your weight is an important part of maintaining your health.
