What's the scoop, baby?

So, baby, what’s the scoop? We keep hearing that drinking tea is healthy, but what precisely does that mean?

Well, tea contains polyphenols, which are particularly strong antioxidants. Antioxidants prevent free radicals from damaging cells in the body. This sort of cell damage is linked to diseases like heart disease and cancer.

High quality tea also contains theanine, an amino acid which promotes relaxation and reduces anxiety. In addition, tea contains B vitamins, folic acid, niacin, iron, zinc, and other vitamins & minerals.

Research is uncovering a wide range of potential benefits in connection with cancer and heart disease, as well as allergies, arthritis. Research is showing that tea may boost the immune system, bone density, digestion, and even weight loss.

What does this mean for us? Clearly, the research indicates that tea has a wide array of potential health benefits and drinking tea regularly can promote good health. At any rate, taking a bit of your day to sit and sip is going to rehydrate and recharge your body and mind. So, sip away, baby! Make tea a part of your healthy and balanced lifestyle!
