The Benefits of Drinking Tea

Before, drinking tea for me is more of about the things I do with it. Just like reading a book or talking to a family or friend. I don't even think of the how much good this magic drink can bring me. I read many articles naming the benefits of drinking tea. It surprise me that even a serious disease can be prevented while enjoying a nice cup of tea.

Whether we allow ourselves to enjoy 2 or 5 cups a day, the benefits keep coming in. 

  1. All teas have antioxidants that can protect you from the effects of pollution and even counter the effects of aging.
  2. It protects your bones by improving bone mineral density and strength.
  3. Tea boost the immune system, allowing your body to fight infection and keeps us away from disease. 
  4. Drinking tea can increase you metabolism which later on leads to proper function of the digestive system and even lose weight in a long run. 
  5. In case you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, the component of the tea helps in processing the sugar better. 
  6. Even though tea contains caffeine, still it keeps you hydrated. The number of cups you drunk is included in the daily required fluid needs. 
  7. Though the studies are not enough, tea is said to help fight cancer. 
  8. Any tea, especially green tea is calorie-free unless you add sugar in it. 
  9. Tea can help reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. 
  10. Tea can somehow help you protect from the danger of exposing your skin to UV rays. 
  11. Tea contains substance which is said to be effective in prevention and treatment of neurological conditions such as Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's Disease. 

Experts recommend two to three cups of tea a day. Again, cups and not mugs. I you can refrain from adding sugar, the effects will be great. 

How many cups of tea do you drink in a day? What are the health effects you notice?

    10. I drink Puerh tea sis. Hubby got it from his trip from Beijing 2 months ago. It helps lower cholesterol levels. Now, instead of drinking soda, I just grab my tea pot and prepare myself some nice ginger/Puerh tea mix,

    19. I'm a tea drinker myself. I'd rather have tea than coffee. And I like my tea hot and with just a little bit of honey or sugar. No milk teas for me. :-) Not only does it keep me healthy, it calms me down as well.
