Starting last month (November 2021), we started to have daily morning tea activity at Clearwater Care, for our beloved YDKs to enjoy fresh air outdoor with a cup of tea and cookies. And guess what, they love it!
Drinking a cup of tea in the morning gives lots of benefits, some of them are mentioned as follows:
1. It Reduces the Risk of Heart Attack
Yes, you read that right! If you have a family history of heart disease, then you must include tea in your daily diet and have it along with your breakfast. Tea has the ability to remove plaque from the arteries and veins, thereby, cutting down on the fat deposit in the heart. This aids in reducing cholesterol, normalizing blood pressure levels, and more than everything else, it stabilizes the heart rate. This, in turn, maintains heart health and reduces the chances of heart diseases.
2. Tea Helps in Fighting Cancer
One of the major tea benefits is that it has antioxidant properties which boost immunity and help in reducing intracellular damage which is one of the many causes of cancer. Having tea regularly may help in avoiding breast, colon, prostate, ovarian, lung, skin, esophagus, liver, pancreas, colorectal, and stomach cancer. It is no miracle that will cure cancer overnight, but it can be a preventative cure against it.
3. It is Great for the Nervous System
You must have noticed that having a cup of tea right before you work, really helps in concentrating and focusing on the job at hand. Well, that is because tea has the ability to charge the neurons and help them function better. This is the reason why people have multiple cups of tea before pulling an all-nighter at work or consume it early in the morning, before heading out to work.
4. It is Hydrating and Versatile
A lot of us are notorious for not having enough water on a daily basis. Another health benefit of tea is that irrespective of whether is consumed iced or hot helps in hydrating the body throughout the day. A cup of tea in the morning provides the body with its normal intake of fluids for that time of the day and helps in being hydrated all throughout the day.
5. Tea Helps With Weight Loss
Weight loss is one of the most popular health benefits of tea. Tea is one of the healthiest beverages in the world. When consumed by itself without any milk, sweeteners or additives, it is a 0 calorie beverage. Apart from that the caffeine present in tea, really helps in energizing the body before a workout, thereby helping you to work a little extra in the gym or while you are jogging. Plus, it also accelerates the natural fat burning process known as lipolysis. So by having one cup of lemon tea or plain tea in the morning, you will notice that paunch reducing within a few months time.
6. It Prevents Tooth Decay
If you are someone who has been frequenting the dentist, then you will certainly make note of this tea benefits. With its plaque removing properties, it really helps to clean the teeth, thereby reducing the chances of cavities. Plus, it also aids in refreshing the breath which is an added bonus. A cup of tea in the morning can help to make you smile even brighter.
7. Tea Helps in Improving Memory
So if you have been absent-minded recently, then chances are that you aren’t having tea on the daily. As mentioned above, tea really helps to make us mentally alert and recharges the neurons. Apart from that it can strengthen the function of brain cells and therefore offer protection from diseases like Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s.
