All those wonderful antioxidants. Tea’s antioxidants protect your body from the ravages of aging and the pollutions in our world. We all want to stay looking young right?!
Protects your bones. There was a study that compared tea drinkers with non-drinkers. They discovered the people who drank tea for 10 or more years had the strongest bones. Even after adjusting for age, body weight, exercise, and other factors. Why? It may have something to do with tea’s many beneficial phytochemicals.
Boosts the immune system. Tea may also help your body fight off infection. When 21 volunteers drank either five cups of tea or coffee each day for four weeks, researchers saw higher immune system activity in the blood of the tea drinkers.
Helps you lose weight! Say what?! Yep. Compounds in the Camellia sinensis plant provide a mild metabolic boost that amounts to the body burning an extra 45 to 50 calories. That may not sound like much, but over just a year, that could easily add up to over five pounds!
Keeps you hydrated. Tea is hydrating to the body, even despite the caffeine! With this summer heat, grab some cool iced tea!
