So many people in the world can’t do without a cup of tea every day and here at JoyByNature, we’re no different. The drink is stimulating, energizing, refreshing...it’s just a lot of good things.

But there’s more than just these reasons to go make a cup of tea. It has a great many health benefits as well. A lot of research has been put into the study of tea and its effects on the human body and it’s all very positive. And that’s just regular tea. Green Tea is believed to have many more benefits. The madness does not stop with tea.

We’ll be listing some of the many health benefits of tea in this article. By the time you’re done, you’ll be in the kitchen heating up the kettle and warming the milk. Those who already consume tea will only feel the desire to have more. Which, of course, is great!

Here are 7 health benefits of tea:

  1. It’ll Help Fend Off Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a severely debilitating neurodegenerative disease. Drinking Tea has been associated with a reduced chance of developing the disease, both in men and women.

  1. It Reduces The Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases

A study was conducted in 2006 with the intention of finding a link between cardiovascular diseases and tea. The results were very encouraging. Tea did indeed seem to have an ability to reduce the chances of cardiovascular diseases.

  1. It May Make You Smarter

It might sound ridiculous, but having your daily portion of tea may make you a smarter human being. This is because tea contains caffeine, and for many, just enough to stimulate them into higher thought. Coffee drinkers need a certain amount of caffeine to get them into this state. Too much will bring about the jitters.

  1. Tea Might Give You Stronger Bones

One research team looked into the link between the strength of bones and tea, and over a ten year period, it was discovered that those who consumed tea regularly had stronger bones than those who didn’t.

  1. It Helps Reduce Stress

Drinking tea regularly has been known to curtail the production of cortisol in the body. Cortisol is the chemical which is known to cause stress. One study involving students showed that those who drank tea every day felt less stressed afterwards.

  1. Tea Has Antioxidants...Many Antioxidants

You’ve probably heard of antioxidants before. They’re particular chemical compounds that do your body a whole lot of good and counter the oxidative damage inflicted upon your body.  This oxidative damage is one reason behind cancer and if green tea offers many antioxidants, it isn’t unreasonable to think that green tea helps fight cancer. We won’t call it a all-in-one cure, but it’s worth trying, isn’t it?

  1. Green Tea Burns Fat And Upgrades You Physically

An odd connection you might think. One that isn’t quite possible. But it’s true.

Green Tea is a thermogenic food that boosts metabolism and increases the amount of fat burned. Some studies have been conducted into this particular aspect of green tea and most have concluded that green tea does indeed boost the metabolic rate of humans. Chalk another up for tea.

Tea has it all covered. Even without these health benefits, we’d be drinking tea. It’ just that lovely a drink. That it has this diverse multitude of benefits just makes it all the more compelling. Tea comes in so many different flavours and so many different types, some more healthy than others, that there is something that suits everyone’s tastes. We highly recommend getting a hold of some and having a cup or two every day.

You’ve got plenty of choice with teas: there’s white tea, black tea, and green tea. They also come in a variety of flavours and tea grown in different parts of the world, like coffee, have different flavours to it. Once you start drinking tea, you’ll never stop, with all it has to offer. Learn more about various flavours of tea by clicking here.
