Tea can reduce the risk of heart disease and potentially improve the blood flow around the body by widening key arteries and reducing the risk of blood clots. Tea contains antioxidants called 'flavonoids', which may slow down the onset and risk of heart disease.
There are many types of tea, black, oolong, green, and white are the most common types of tea. Black tea is packed with healthy antioxidants. The phenolic content in tea refers to the phenols and polyphenols, the natural plant compounds which are found in tea. These chemical compounds can affect the flavor and mouthfeel and are known to provide potential health benefits. Polyphenols in tea are catechins, theaflavins, tannins, and flavonoids. Polyphenols can help protect your cells from DNA damage. Based on scientific research, black tea provides anti-cancer benefits, is good for digestion, and has beneficial effects on your skin, hair and teeth.
Oolong tea has the ability to reduce chronic health conditions such as heart disease, inflammatory disorders, and high cholesterol levels while providing vital antioxidants and promoting superior bone structure, robust skin, and good dental health.
Green tea can improve blood flow, lowers cholesterol, and helps block the formation of plaques that are linked to Alzheimer's disease. It can also help keep blood sugar stable in people with diabetes.
White tea can reduce the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disorders, and improve oral health. It has antioxidant and anti-aging properties which help to maintain good health and wrinkle-free skin. White tea protects the skin from the harmful effects of UV rays because of its antibacterial properties. It can protect your body from various infection-causing bacteria too and provides relief to diabetics from symptoms such as decreased plasma glucose levels, increased insulin secretion, and excessive thirst (polydipsia).
