Are you getting enough water, baby? The hydrating powers of tea!

Are you getting enough water, baby? That hardworking body of yours needs water to transport oxygen to your cells, move nutrients to your organs and regulate your body temperature. Common knowledge dictates about 8 glasses of water per day, more if you are engaging in additional activity, flying in an airplane or living in an arid climate.

What's that baby? 8 glasses of water too boring for you? Not to fear! Substitute a few of those glasses for cups of delicious, all natural tea. The National Drinks Survey, cited in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, suggests that consumption of normal tea has an overall hydrating effect on the body. So, drink up, baby!
