10 Reasons Your Body Will Love You For Drinking Tea

posted in Food & Drink
  • 1. Tea contains antioxidants

    Antioxidants work to prevent the body's version of rust and thus help to keep us young and protect us from damage from pollution.

  • 2. Tea has less caffeine than coffee

    Herbal blends have no caffeine, while traditional teas have less than 50 percent of what typically is found in coffee. That means you can consume it without those pesky effects on your nervous system, says Leslie Bonci, nutritionist and owner of Active Eating Advice.

  • 3. Tea may reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke

    In fact, a study published earlier this year that combined data from a host of earlier reports found a nearly 20 percent reduction in the risk of heart attack and a 35 percent reduced risk of stroke among those who drank one to three cups of green tea a day. Those who drank four or more cups of green tea daily had a 32 percent reduction in the risk of having a heart attack and lower levels of LDL cholesterol.

  • 4. Tea may help with weight loss

  • 5. Tea may help protect your bones

    Data from recent animal studies has shown that green tea may prevent bone loss.

  • 6. Tea may keep your smile bright

    "Japanese researchers have found that tea can decrease tooth loss," Ardine says. "It changes the pH in your mouth when you drink it and that may be what prevents cavities." Beyond that, tea, unlike many other beverages does not appear to erode tooth enamel, Bonci says.

  • 7. Tea may boost the immune system

    Studies have shown tea can tune up immune cells so they reach their targets quicker.

  • 8. Tea may help battle cancer

    Leslie Bonci, a nutritionist, says "if you've got a strong family history of cancer and you want to do anything you can, you might increase your tea consumption."

  • 9. Herbal tea may soothe the digestive system

    Herbal teas, in particular chamomile, can be good for people with irritable bowel syndrome because it is an antispasmodic. And ginger teas can calm nausea.

  • 10. Tea — unadulterated, that is — is calorie free

    It's a great no-calorie alternative to water. That means you're able to hydrate with something other than water alone.
