5 Little-Known Health Benefits of Drinking Tea
Did you know that December 15 is International Tea Day? Since its inception in 2005, this worldwide event is celebrated each year in tea-producing countries such as Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Malawi, Malaysia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Uganda. Although International Tea Day was created to draw everyone’s attention to the conditions and contributions of tea workers and growers around the globe, it’s also a good time to learn about the world’s most popular drink after water.
What are the 5 Little-Known Health Benefits of Drinking Tea?
People have been enjoying their tea for nearly 5,000 years. Aside from being taken purportedly to enhance a person’s health and well-being, tea also serves as a cure-all in a number of Asian countries. In celebration of this year’s International Tea Day, let’s dive deep and explore the 5 little-known health benefits of drinking tea:
1. It boosts your metabolism.
If you’re interested in revving up your metabolism and losing those extra pounds, consider drinking at least two to six cups of black, oolong or green tea per day. These tea variants contain polyphenols that can reduce your body fat and increase the number of calories that you burn.
2. It fights inflammation.
Tea’s polyphenols contain anti-inflammatory properties. In case you’re not aware, inflammation has been considered as the root cause of most chronic diseases including diabetes.
Furthermore, green tea’s epigallocatechin gallate (EPCG) is a polyphenol that benefits human health and helps ward off diseases. EPCG is used in many dietary supplements and is known to be 100 times more potent than the antioxidant power of vitamin C.
3. It can reduce complications from diabetes.
Diabetes remains a worldwide health concern that leads to higher risks of complications, poor quality of life, and early death. Thankfully, tea can cause a diabetic person’s chances of developing these complications to significantly drop. Aside from the fact that regular intake of tea decreases inflammation, it also enhances the body’s insulin sensitivity and protects the pancreatic cells from damage.
4. It aids digestion.
Aside from treating issues such as nausea, diarrhea, and upset stomach, tea can also help you streamline your digestion. The gingerol and shogaol compounds that are present in ginger tea help prevent nausea by soothing the stomach lining. Moreover, the tannin compounds that are present in tea can treat irritable bowel syndrome and stomach cramps by reducing intestinal inflammation.
5. It promotes brain health.
Regular consumption of green tea can prevent cognitive decline that’s associated with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Its antioxidants protect your brain’s healthy cells by eliminating free radicals that cause stress and mental health problems.
