Happy Hot Tea Month!

When the weather gets cold, nothing is more comforting than a warm beverage in your hands. It’s time to pick up a beverage that has added health benefits! January happens to be National Hot Tea month, so we’d like to take this time to talk about the benefits of tea!

First up, there are a number of types of teas that can be customized to suit your needs!


Green- The tea most commonly known for health benefits, green tea antioxidants have been linked to reduced risk of stroke, neurological disorders, and stress, improved cholesterol, fat burning, and an interference in the growth of some cancers.1
 

Black- Black tea is known for having the highest caffeine content, however studies have shown that it may protect lungs from damage caused by exposure to cigarette smoke. Black tea can also be linked to a decrease in risk of type 2 diabetes.1


Oolong, White, Pur-eh- These teas have not been reviewed as often as green and black teas, however they have been linked to reduced cholesterol, and on occasion anti-cancer properties.1

Herbal teas often have the same significant health benefits as the herbs you are taking currently! It’s always best to be under the care of a physician before starting or changing your supplements. We offer nutritional consults to help assess what supplements and herbs may be missing from your whole health routine.

 

Beyond the benefits of individual types of tea, there are some overall benefits as well! Drinking unsweetened tea is an excellent no-calorie, high flavored way to stay hydrated, even in the winter when you may not be thirsty. The anti-oxidants from tea can help keep your body moving well, and teas have been shown to protect your teeth from plaque!

Not to mention, studies show that 10 minutes of meditation per day can help keep your stress levels in a healthy range. If you’re struggling, what a better way to introduce meditation into your routine than to take 10 minutes to meditate over a mug of tea!
