I recently started drinking tea, and I have to say that I have noticed some changes in my body. So, I decided to share with you some of the benefits of drinking tea. Keep in mind that I gathered the information after reading multiple sources.
What do we know about tea? People has been drinking tea for so long, it is very hard to determine who came across the herbal drink first. Many believe that it originated in China. Tea was known as a medicinal drink in China, legend says that Emperor Shen Nung was curious about the aroma of some dried leafs that got into a boiling pot of water and he decided to try it out. He liked it! Then tea was spread all through Europe and people began drinking more and creating new combinations to add a variations of flavors.
Turmeric Tea- anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer cells. In India there is a belief that turmeric helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease. I am currently drinking Turmeric Tea and I have noticed a dramatic change in my skin. My skin is softer and my psoriasis flares are not as dark as they usually are. Now I am going to tell you a little secret. The other day I was fixing dinner, I was working in a marinate for some thick pork chops…after adding all the usual herbs I add to my marinate…I decided to add a couple of bags of the turmeric tea. I was trying to secretly incorporate the tea, so my kids would have some turmeric. It worked! The tea added a nice color to the meat and it also added an extra layer of flavor.
Cardamon Tea-full of antioxidants. Cardamon is also known as an anti-aging kind of tea. It is also beneficial for your skin. The tea is rich in vitamins, anti-microbial agents and minerals. Cardamon tea is also great for your hair, it makes your hair strong and it also prevents your scalp from getting infections. I drink it because it detoxify your body, it helps your immune system. It a strong tea, I drink it, although I am not a fan of the aroma.
Chamomile Tea-great for stomach aches, cramps. Chamomile tea is great for insomnia, it acts like a tranquilizer, helping you ease your mind when its time to go to bed. It is also great for skin inflammation and it helps prevent cancer growth. If you ice your chamomile tea bags you can press the bags against pimples and it helps decrease the swollen and the redness. It is also magnificent for menstrual cramps. My favorite thing about the chamomile tea is that it boost your immune system, which is critical for people who suffer from skin diseases, like psoriasis and eczema.
Green Tea-antioxidants and great for your brain. Epigallocatechin Gallate is a very powerful antioxidant that has been studied to treat various diseases, and that is why green tea is such a powerful tea. The compounds in green tea ca improve brain function. Green tea has been known to assist with weight loss and its been said, that green tea can prevent various types of cancer such as breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer. I like green tea, but I don’t drink it often.
Jasmine Tea- prevention of diseases. Jasmine tea has been known for heart disease prevention as well as diabetes. It also helps your immune system, muscle inflammation and reduce stress. In reducing stress it is also assisting with some secondary symptoms of stress that can harm your internal organs. Jasmine tea is nothing other than Jasmine added to other teas such as white or black tea, to enhance the tea and provide the above mentioned benefits to the consumer.
I purchase my tea on Amazon.com or from TJMaxx or Home Goods. You can find tea anywhere, I choose those three places because they usually have good deals, price wise, and they carry new and different varieties than the ones you can find at grocery stores. One hint I want to give to those picky eaters/drinkers…do not smell the tea!!!! Wait until is cool enough to drink, and do not smell it, just savor it…your savor glands will get use to the different taste and you will find yourself craving some tea. So far I have my husband involved with the tea…we are loving it!
