Tea Time

They say that everything should be taken in moderation. Why? It’s because too much of a good thing can result in it being a bad thing. However, did you know that there is something you can literally indulge in without the guilt?

According to American Dietetic Association Spokeswoman Katherine Tallmadge, MA, RD, LD –

There doesn’t seem to be a downside to tea.

Wow! That statement is phenomenal. Tea is so good that you can drink it, enjoy it and can do wonders for your body. But which tea should you start consuming? Which one is the best? Let’s find out!

This particular type of plant is one of the most ancient, if not the oldest type of herbal medicine that is known to mankind. It can be used in different ways to treat different diseases. Some use it as essential oils or topical oils for aromatherapy. But asides from that, chamomile as a tea can also help in the following:

  1. The antioxidants found in chamomile tea can stunt the growth of cancer cells
  2. Chamomile Tea helps in aiding gastrointestinal inflammation
  3. Chamomile Tea can also help with the prevention of complications of diabetes.

According to the American Cancer Society, this particular type of tea has the most potent anticancer capabilities. But asides from that, it can also help with:

  1. Lowering of the blood pressure
  2. Keep your teeth strong and healthy
  3. Helps boost your immune system

Perhaps one of the “mainstream” type of teas, it is known that this tea has a high number of catechins, which is an antioxidant – which in turn helps prevent free radicals in the body, that leads to cancer.

  1. Because of the high number of anti oxidants, green tea may reduce the risk of stroke
  2. Green Tea also has fluoride content, that helps prevent tooth decay.

This tea is commonly known to help in weight loss – that is because it activates our body to cut down triglycerides, which is a fat found in our blood.

Those are just some of the many types of teas and what they can do. For the majority, they are all antioxidants which is good in the prevention of cancer growth.

Are all teas created equal?

While it’s tempting to buy and get your tea on now, remember that artificial teas are not anywhere near as good as the naturally prepared ones. Be careful on getting teas prepared as juices as they may have included more ingredients that can outweigh the good effects tea leaves may have.

Care for your body! Start drinking tea and feel refreshed, relaxed and one sip healthier.
