Take a closer look at tea and the benefits that tea drinking will give you and your family.
Recent research shows that any tea derived from camellia sinensis has cancer-fighting properties. The leaves of this plant contain chemicals called polyphenols, which give tea its antioxidant properties.
Polyphenols in tea have been known to help:
-protect cells from the normal, but damaging, physiological process known as "oxidative stress." Although oxygen is vital to life, it's also incorporated into reactive substances called free radicals. These can damage the cells in our body and have been implicated in the slow chain reaction of damage leading to heart disease and cancer.
-prevent blood clotting
-neutralize enzymes that aid in the growth of tumors
-deactivate cancer promoters
-stimulate the immune system
Tea also has fluoride for strong teeth, virtually no calories, and half the amount of caffeine found in an equally-sized cup of coffee.
Apart from polyphenols, tea also contains a variety of ingredients that are beneficial to one's health. These include theanine (an amino acid unique to tea), vitamins, minerals, and methylxanthines. These are the components that are the source of the healthful properties of tea.
These are known to:
-Help fight against mutagenic agents
-Be is anti-aging
-Help fight high blood pressure
-Help fight against viral and bacterial infection
-Help improve the functions of the digestive and excretory systems
