Teas with Benefits

by Jody Dotson

Tea has been around for almost 5,000 years and is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world. You already know tea can improve your skin and help keep you fit and trim, but did you know that tea has other amazing health benefits?

The benefits of drinking tea include:

Natural antioxidants: Tea may lower the risk of various forms of cancer, like skin, lung, and breast cancer.

Cardiovascular health: Tea has been shown to reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease.

Caffeine-free: Generally, herbal teas contain no caffeine. If you are sensitive to caffeine or you want something relaxing to drink at night you can benefit from sipping herbal tea.

Calorie-free: A plain cup of tea has less than five calories. So, as long as you avoid adding sugar and milk, you can enjoy that flavorful cup while sticking to your weight loss plan.
