8 Health Benefits of Tea

Camomile Tea

Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water, and can be found in almost 80% of all households. Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves.

Studies have found that some teas may help with cancer, heart disease, and diabetes; encourage weight loss; lower cholesterol; and bring about mental alertness. Tea also appears to have antimicrobial qualities.

Read on to find out why tea rocks your health.

  1. Tea can boost exercise endurance. Scientists have found that the catechins (antioxidants) in green tea extract, increases the body’s ability to burn fat as fuel, thus improving muscle endurance.
  2. Drinking tea could help reduce the risk of heart attack as it is known to protect against cardiovascular and degenerative diseases.
  3. The antioxidants in tea might help protect against a number of cancers, namely breast, colon, colorectal, skin, lung, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, pancreas, liver, ovarian, prostate and oral cancers. But don’t rely solely on tea to keep a healthy body as it is not a miracle cure for all.
  4. Tea is hydrating to the body (even despite the caffeine!).
  5. Tea could keep waist circumference in check. In one study, participants who regularly consumed hot tea had lower waist circumference and lower BMI than the non-consuming participants.
  6. Tea could be beneficial to people with Type 2 diabetes. Studies suggest that compounds in green tea could help diabetics better process sugars.
  7. Green tea has been found to improve bone mineral density and strength.
  8. Tea might be an effective agent in the prevention and treatment of neurological diseases, especially degenerative diseases (think Alzheimer’s). While many factors influence brain health, polyphenols in green tea may help maintain the parts of the brain that regulate learning and memory.
