Drinking tea has numerous healthy benefits, but different teas have different qualities. Black tea is very high in caffeine, but others have no caffeine and can even act as a sleep aid.
Green tea is well-known for doing the body good and has much less caffeine than coffee or black tea. It contains EGCG that helps the body to burn fat faster and improves insulin use. Green tea is full of antioxidants that fight free radicals in the body. Some studies suggest that green tea may help prevent and fight cancer.
White tea has the least amount of caffeine and highest amount of antioxidants. Then green tea, then oolong tea, and finally black tea.
Herbal teas have no caffeine, and a wide range of benefits based on the ingredients used. Technically, though, herbal teas are not a tea. Tea has to come from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, and the different types are dependent on age of fermentation and various growing styles.
Even black tea can be good for you- it helps overall heart health and blood circulation. Because of the higher concentration of caffeine, it’s wise to use the “everything in balance and moderation” mindset.
Studies have shown that tea has many important health benefits. For one, they are loaded with antioxidants. These are responsible for destroying free radicals which can lead to blood clots, atherosclerosis, and cancer. Green tea’s unique antioxidants are even more concentrated because of the minimal processing it endures. Lab studies have led researchers to believe that green tea can help inhibit cancer growth and kill abnormally-growing cells. Some human studies have show lower rates of cancer returning and lower risk for developing certain cancers. In terms of heart health, the antioxidants found in tea are dilators, which means that they improve blood vessel flexibility and makes clogging of them less likely. Lastly, green tea is thought to help with weight management. By fighting obesity and reducing cholesterol levels, the risk for weight-related diseases such as heart disease is greatly reduced. Many researchers are still unsure how much tea is necessary to provide noticeable benefits, and how much these studies have been affected by lifestyle choices. But the benefits are still definitely there!
