Five benefits of drinking tea!
Tea is a refreshing beverage that can be consumed hot or cold. You will be happy to know that there are also many benefits of drinking tea. Have a look at our list below to find out some of the top benefits!
- Tea provides antioxidants
Antioxidants can help slow down the ageing process and also can help repair your cells. White tea has more beneficial antioxidants as it is less processed than green or black tea.
- It has less caffeine than coffee (or no caffeine at all!)
Tea releases caffeine slowly so can still provide an energy boost similar to coffee. There are also teas that have little or no caffeine which can help you go to sleep in the evening.
- Drinking tea can give you a boost during exercise.
Drinking tea, especially green tea, can have many benefits for you during a workout. Green tea can help you perform better during exercise and help build muscle mass.
- Tea can calm you down!
A cup of tea really can help in a time of need! For us Brits, this might be linked to our cultural and symbolic act of putting the kettle on! Teas like Chamomile and Lavender can soothe you during a stressful situation.
- It may help keep your digestive system healthy
Many herbal teas can help soothe digestive issues and may also limit any adverse digestive issues. Teas like peppermint can help you digest food quicker while chai tea may help better with heartburn and indigestion.
