The Health Benefits of Thai Tea
Thai tea is a tasty drink that originates from Thailand. It’s made from black tea, milk, and sugar, and is usually served over ice, but can be enjoyed hot as well. Thai tea is not only delicious—it’s good for you, too! These are some of the main health benefits you can enjoy with this drink:
Reduced Cancer Risk
Since Thai tea is made from black tea leaves, it’s full of antioxidants, which help prevent cancer. This benefit doesn’t just apply to one type of cancer, either. The antioxidants in Thai tea reduce the risk of many different forms of cancer including cancer of the pancreas, stomach, colon, prostate, lungs, skin, and breast. The more you drink this tea, the lower your risk becomes, so be sure to drink up!
Consuming Thai tea actually expands your arteries, which makes them significantly healthier. This plays an important role in preventing heart attacks and strokes. A study at Boston University shows that heart patients who drank black tea experienced 50% better functioning of their blood vessels than those who didn’t. With all the foods out there that damage your heart and blood vessels, it’s more important than ever to keep them healthy!
Thai tea has caffeine, which is a stimulant. This helps you stay focused and energetic. The combination of caffeine and antioxidants in Thai tea helps boost your metabolism, so your body will burn calories more quickly. Drinking this and engaging in moderate exercise will lead to weight loss and an overall healthier you!
