Let’s be honest, there’s never a bad time to drink tea. In fact, adding tea to your daily diet is an incredible idea. The benefits of tea consumption on a regular basis are well documented, and we have to say, quite awesome. As you can imagine, we at Your Tea have no trouble getting in our daily dose of tea. But, if you need a little convincing, take a look at these benefits of tea every day.
1. Tea Reduces Your Risk of Heart Attack
Who knew that the benefits of tea include a protection against heart attacks and cardiovascular disease? Well, now you know, so drink up!
2. Tea Hydrates
That’s right! Move over coffee and water. You can get your caffeine and hydration in a cup of tea. That’s a knockout if we’ve ever seen one.
3. Tea Keeps You Healthy
One of the benefits of tea is that it fights free radicals in the body. And since free radicals have been linked to cancer, heart disease, and neurological degeneration, that sounds like an incredible benefit. In fact, more studies than not suggest that tea has cancer-fighting benefits.
4. Tea Boosts Your Endurance
Grab the Your Tea travel mug—we recommend the pink marble travel mug—fill it with tea and drink it on your way to the gym. Scientists have found that the antioxidants in tea increase your body’s ability to burn fat as fuel and improve your muscle endurance during exercise.
5. Tea Protects Your Skin
Say what!? Tea can provide protection from ultraviolet rays. So if you’re a sun-loving guy or gal, drinking tea can back up your sunscreen and help limit your exposure to harmful UV rays.
6. Tea Keeps Your Weight in Check
A recent study found that people who regularly consumed hot tea had a lower waist circumference and lower BMI than non-consuming participants. That sounds like an excellent benefit of tea. Tea also increases your metabolism so that you can burn 70-80 additional calories a day, just by drinking a few cups of tea.
7. Tea Helps Your Bones
Tea has been found to help improve bone mineral density and strength. So if you drink tea every day, say goodbye to brittle bones. In fact, a study found that people who drank tea for 10 or more years had the strongest bones!
8. Tea Brightens Your Smile
Who doesn’t want a healthy set of teeth and a beautiful smile? One of the benefits of tea consumed every day is that it can reduce your dentist visits. The fluoride and tannins in tea can keep plaque at bay, freshen your breath, and give you healthier gums.
