Besides water tea is the most consumed beverage in the world. The varieties seem endless; black, green, white, oolong, herbal, red......but what's the difference? Research shows there are many health benefits to drinking tea. Many of your teas have powerful antioxidants, some even more than fruits and vegetables, as well as vitamins, minerals and at least half the caffeine of coffee. Tea drinkers have a lowered risk of things like high cholesterol, heart disease and stroke, mainly due to the free-radical fighting polyphenols.Your 'true' teas such as black, green, white, oolong come from the Camellia plant and have the true cancer-fighting antioxidants and many health benefits. Most of your herbal teas are surprisingly not really teas at all. They in a class called 'tisane' and are fusions of herbs, flowers, spices, roots and other parts of plants. These teas are not without their benefits, however. These herbs have wonderful effects on the body. Chamomile tea has sedative and relaxing effects and can help aid in stomach and digestion problems. Herbal tea can also help the immune system, lower cholesterol, relieve symptoms of arthritis, and can even relieve the onset of migraines due to anti-inflammatory properties.
So which ever tea is for you, be sure to steep a cup once a day to help aid in your optimal health. You could even ask your doctor or a nutritionist which tea is right for you. Be sure to educate yourself and take charge of your health. Be well and drink tea!
