Drink these teas, and you’ll notice major health improvements!
Tea is, aside from water, very possibly the healthiest thing you can drink.
Not only does it contain zero calories (or incredibly close), but it’s also free of sugar while being highly rich in nutrients.
In fact, you’ll find that few other foods or drinks on the planet contain quite as many important antioxidants as tea. Even herbal tisanes are loaded with nutrients and herbal properties that make them amazing health remedies.
If you want to be healthier, here are a few teas to stock up on today:
Black tea contains more caffeine than the other “true teas”, which means it’s a great option if you’re trying to caffeinate up without relying on coffee. In fact, it’s often a go-to for people trying to quit coffee but who still need a pick-me-up to start their day off right.
Black tea contains an amino acid called theanine, which is known to not only slow caffeine absorption, but reduces the jittery sensation that often accompanies high doses of caffeine. You’ll find that the theanine does wonders to make the energy boost last longer without it feeling like an intense “high” and subsequent “crash”.
How good is black tea for your health? Just three cups a day has been scientifically proven to lower your heart disease risk, and the polyphenols in black tea can do wonders to aid in your digestion. Black tea can even improve gut bacteria to strengthen your immune system and fight harmful bacteria!
Green tea is, as we all know, an amazing source of antioxidants. In fact, one particular antioxidant—called EGCG—is an effective fat-burning nutrient, and it’s actually specifically able to target belly fat for burning. EGCG can also improve heart health, lower your blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, prevent cardiovascular inflammation (and all inflammation, for that matter), and prevent cardiovascular health problems.
Green tea contains less caffeine than black tea, but it’s still got enough to give you that nice little energy boost that will keep you going. It will boost your metabolism to ensure your body is able to produce more energy naturally. Best of all, it can help to prevent the spread and growth of certain cancers, potentially even killing off cancer cells.
White tea has a more delicate flavor and lower caffeine levels than the other “true teas”, but it’s amazing for helping your body control glucose levels. In fact, studies have indicated that drinking at least four cups of low-caffeine white tea per day can drastically reduce your risk of high blood sugar and Type 2 Diabetes. Thanks to the antioxidants in the tea, your body will be better able to regulate your blood sugar on its own, and you will be less resistant to insulin.
Oolong is basically tea leaves that have undergone some fermentation, and the result is not only a unique flavor profile, but also an amazing nutritional content. Oolong tea contains a lot of theasinensins, antioxidants that can protect your body against carcinogens, reduce inflammation, and offer antimicrobial protection.
Hibiscus tea is made from the hibiscus flower, and it’s one of the best tea-based sources of Vitamin C. Hibiscus tea has been proven to offer anti-tumor benefits, thanks to the flavonoids and phenolic compounds it contains. Not only can it prevent tumor growth, but it’s also amazing at reducing free radical activity in the body. With its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, you’ll find that it’s awesome for lowering your blood pressure and decreasing cardiovascular risk.
Peppermint tea is amazing for your digestion! Drinking it can help to quell stomach upset, aid in digestion, and settle a queasy stomach. It’s also excellent for shutting down your appetite—a cup of peppermint tea after a light meal can stop you from feeling hungry, making it easier for you to eat less, as well as preventing snacking. The anti-inflammatory properties of the menthol in peppermint will help to soothe swelling or stomach upset, and you’ll find that peppermint is even an effective painkiller!
Ginger tea is, by far, one of the best digestive aids on the planet. Like peppermint tea, it’s amazing for dealing with not only nausea and indigestion, but also both motion sickness and the morning sickness common during pregnancy.
Ginger is also rich in potent anti-inflammatory properties, and it can drastically decrease swelling in your stomach and intestines. It’s amazing at soothing stomach cramps, and the fact that it can inhibit serotonin receptors makes it highly effective for combatting stress and nausea.
Chamomile tea is one that will make a huge difference in your evenings! Not only is it a calming tea, but it has been scientifically proven effective at reducing depression, improving sleep quality, and aiding in relaxation in the evening. Drinking chamomile tea before bed can help you to sleep better, for longer, and with fewer disturbances during the night. You’ll also wake up the next morning alert, refreshed, and ready for another day of work!
