Benefits of Organic Tea
Research has recently proved in the west what was known for centuries in the east; the various health benefits of organic tea. Organic tea encompasses a wide range of benefits from possibly helping to get over the common cold to potentially helping prevent cancer. So just pour that cup of tea that you have always enjoyed and indulge in it to your health's content.
The number one health benefiting property of tea is that it is an antioxidant. Free oxygen radicals, which cause a number of degenerative diseases from cancer to plaque deposits in the arteries, are effectively controlled by drinking organic tea. For best results drink three to four cups daily.
Organic teas, like green and white tea contain a higher proportion of the cancer fighting polyphenols as compared to black tea as they are produced by just lightly steaming or simply drying naturally-unlike black tea, which is fermented. This may help in preventing cancers, especially of the gastro intestinal tract.
Also, it may help in reducing cholesterol levels and lowers the blood pressure, thus significantly reducing risk of heart disease and stroke.
Another major benefit of organic tea is that it helps in reducing and maintaining blood sugar level and thus may be an effective therapy to manage diabetes.
Organic tea, according to some research is found to be an anti bacterial as well as anti viral agent and may help in preventing tooth decay and viral diseases like influenza and diarrhea.
Drinking organic tea also aids in digestion and is also a metabolic stimulant and can be utilized as part of a healthy diet. It is potentially an anti aging tonic.
Of course due to the tannins and the amino acid L-theanine, organic tea is considered by many to be a great stress buster that calms and relaxes the mind and body completely.
