Tea & Health

Even though the health benefits of tea have been known for nearly 5000 years, it has been less than a decade since people in America have been inn dated with countless studies that expose the medicinal benefits of tea.

Here is a partial list of conditions some research has shown, which may be prevented or improved by drinking tea:

Heart Disease:
 

A recent study published in the journal Circulation found that drinking more than two cups of tea a day decreased the risk of death following a heart attack by 44 percent. Even less spirited tea drinkers were rewarded: Consuming just two cups a day decreased the risk of death by almost a third.

 

Cancer:
 

Green tea extracts were found to inhibit the growth of bladder cancer cells in the lab – while other studies suggest that drinking green tea protects against developing stomach and esophageal cancers.

 

Arthritis:
 

Research suggests that older women who are tea drinkers are 60 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than those who do not drink tea.

 

Bone Density:
 

Drinking tea regularly for years may produce stronger bones. Those who drank tea on a regular basis for 10 or more years had higher-bone mineral density in their spines than those who had not.

 

Parkinson’s Disease:
 

Tea consumption may be protective against developing this debilitating neurological disorder.

 

Oral Health:
 

Rinsing with tea may prevent cavities and gum disease.

Almost on a weekly basis, we are reading a new study from a highly-accredited institute describing how a certain tea has a particular benefit for our health and why it is good to consume it. We realize that all this information can be overwhelming and hard to remember
