Enjoy the Health Benefits of Tea: A Cup a Day Can Keep You Healthy!

Britons may be known for their love of tea, but the beverage is also proving to have some health benefits. Recent studies show that those who partake in a few cups of tea a day are at lower risk of death from any cause.


The study, published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, looked into data from over 200 thousand participants aged 37-73 and followed up with them after an average duration of nine years. They found that those who drank three or four cups per day had 18 percent reduced risk of mortality as compared to those who drank less than one cup daily. This finding still held true even when adjusted for lifestyle factors such as smoking, body mass index and physical activity levels.


This news is sure to make tea drinkers rejoice, as the beverage has been linked to a range of health benefits. These include lower risk of cardiovascular diseases, cognitive decline, and type 2 diabetes.


The main reason behind this could be attributed to the polyphenols that are found in tea leaves. Polyphenols are powerful antioxidants which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. They can also reduce inflammation and reduce levels of bad cholesterol (LDL) in the body.


In addition, drinking tea is known to be beneficial for mental health due to its calming effects caused by L-theanine, an amino acid found in tea leaves that helps promote relaxation without causing drowsiness. This calming effect can help those experiencing stress or anxiety, and can also be beneficial for sleep.


It is clear that tea has many health benefits as long as it is not consumed in excess. So grab yourself a cuppa and enjoy the positive effects on your health!
