The Many Wonders Of Tea

Everyday there is something new to love about tea.

With varieties such as, black, green white and oolong, there is a tea for everyone who wants to enjoy the health benefits of this plant.

A study done by UCLA, found that drinking three cups (or more) of either green or black tea a day can reduce your risk of stroke by 21 percent. The health benefits associated with tea come from its high levels of antioxidants such as polyphenols, flavonoids and catechins, which fight free radicals in the body and prevent healthy cells from being harmed. Other studies have found that drinking a couple cups of tea a day may also help lower cholesterol and protect against certain cancers.

The ritual of drinking tea is also a great way to break bad eating habits.

Making time to have tea instead of sweetened beverages or colas can help you to shed pounds as an added bonus.
