What Are the Benefits of Consuming Tea?
For centuries, eastern civilizations – particularly China – have implemented the use of tea as part of their dietary and health regimen. In its beginnings, tea was used for medicinal purposes. However, its popularity increased and became a favorite recreational drink across other eastern civilizations. As time went by, traders and merchants introduced the popular drink to western civilization. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), teas offer a number of advantages.
Reduce the Risk of Cardiovascular Diseases
There are several studies suggesting tea can help lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Some of tea’s properties can help reduce cholesterol levels (LDL) and blood pressure. According to a study conducted by the Cochrane Database System Review in 2013, the evidence tends to suggest that “tea has favorable effects on (CVD) risk factors.”
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), nearly 610,000 people die every year due to cardiovascular diseases in the U.S. Furthermore; the CDC estimates 735,000 heart attacks occur every year in the country. Tea can help lower the risks commonly associated with this deadly condition. Although this study recognizes that there is still a need for further research, it seems likely that tea can help lower your risk of CVD.
Improves Brain Function
Tea can also help boost brain function. According to a study published by Psychopharmacology in 2014, tea can help improve cognitive functions and memory processing at the neural level. Drinking tea can help you maintain mental sharpness and alertness during the day. This may be the reason why millions of people prefer it over beverages such as coffee. One to three cups of tea every day can help you stay sharp, focused, alert, and ready for the day.
Helps Reduce the Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes is a severe illness affecting the lives of millions of Americans every year. According to the American Diabetes Association, 30.3 million Americans had diabetes in 2015. Green tea can help lower the risks of suffering from this condition. According to a study published by Annals of Internal Medicine, people who consumed 6 or more cups of green tea per day were less likely to develop diabetes compared to people who did not drink any tea. Incorporating tea as part of your dietary regimen can help you avoid developing diabetes.
Improves Weight Loss
Come teas have shown to have components that can increase fat oxidation within the body, which can help with weight loss over time. People who consume at least two to three cups of green tea per day may experience weight loss in a short period. Furthermore, people may see incredible results when combining tea consumption with regular exercise. Whether you are on a cardio or weight lifting regimen, combining your training with tea can yield excellent results.
At Yao medicine, we offer nothing but high-quality teas so everyone can benefit from these flavorful, healthy, and fantastic beverages.
What Kind of Tea is The Best for You?
There are many different variants of tea available to consumers. The tea market has skyrocketed in recent years, which has opened the doors for more types of the beverage to surface. From fragrant and subtle to robust and malty, the tea market has something for everyone. However, certain types of tea remain the favorites among general tea consumers.
For instance, one of the most famous kinds of tea is green tea. Green tea is known for its antioxidant properties and rounded flavor profile. Another widely known and popular type of tea is rooibos tea. Different from green tea, it has a sharper flavor, although it is also rich in antioxidants like its green tea counterpart. Finally, another drink that has been picking up popularity among tea lovers is matcha tea. This sweet tea is a crowd pleaser, and it is also known for its antioxidant and soothing properties.
Tea can bring not only a pleasant and relaxing time but can also contribute to improving your health. At Yao, we offer our clients these and other popular teas.
