New Years comes and we all think, at least to ourselves, what perhaps our New Years resolution SHOULD be whether we follow through or not. Most resolutions consist of losing weight, or to stop smoking, taking care of your health, or spending more time with your family. Drinking loose leaf tea could assist you with all that.
Tea increases your metabolism. Lots of people complain about a slow metabolic rate and their inability to lose weight. Green tea has been shown to actually increase metabolic rate so that you can burn 70 to 80 additional calories by drinking just five cups of green tea per day. Over a year’s time you could lose eight pounds just by drinking green tea. Tea is calorie-free. Tea doesn’t have any calories, unless you add sweetener or milk. Consuming even 250 fewer calories per day can result in losing one pound per week. If you’re looking for a satisfying, calorie-free beverage, tea is a top choice.
Taking Care of your health
Tea bolsters your immune defenses. Drinking tea may help your body’s immune system fight off infection. When 21 volunteers drank either five cups of tea or coffee each day for four weeks, researchers saw higher immune system activity in the blood of the tea drinkers. Tea protects against cancer. Thank the polyphenols, the antioxidants found in tea, once again for their cancer-fighting effects. While the overall research is inconclusive, there are enough studies that show the potential protective effects of drinking tea to make adding tea to your list of daily beverages.
Some people comment on the fact that ONE of the reasons they smoke is that they have a oral fixation, and they must have something in their mouths, be it food, a cigarette, a piece of gum…well why not go straight for the green tea.
Spending more time with your family
We have a blend of loose leaf tea called “Anti -Stress” its herbal, with hibiscus, lemon grass, rose hip, chamomile and jasmine flowers all of which are to assist you in relaxing. If we all were to just calm down, relax, and take a breath from our everyday life…would we not be able to enjoy spending much needed time with our families? In addition to the calming effects of loose leaf tea, the health benefits from drinking tea far out WEIGH the reasons to not drink it. Studies have shown that you can lose weight, ( live longer) bolsters your immune system, (live longer) and their cancer fighting effects all assist you in LIVING longer, and that essentially means you can spend more time with your family.
