TEA FOR GREAT HEALTH

By Kathy Emiko
A healthy body begins with cleaning out accumulated toxins of the past and preparing it to accept new and efficient nutrients.” – Kathy Emiko

Whether you want to slim down or get healthy, sipping tea is one of the most effective steps you should take.

Teas have enzymes that promote digestion and help our bodies resist harmful bacteria. High flavonoids in tea reduce harmful blood clotting linked to heart attacks. They contain polyphenols (not tannins as commonly believed) that act as anti-oxidants, yet do not interfere with iron or protein absorption. Whole organic leaf tea is healthier than bagcut tea because they contain more anti-oxidants.

Here are some benefits for taking organic tea.
a. Protect your bones with Green Tea: According to a new study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, green tea aficionados’ bones are typically 3% thicker than the bones of non-tea drinkers! Thanks to the powerful anti-oxidants in green tea, as well as its estrogenlike compounds and flavonoids, which stimulate production of new cells.

b. Burn fat faster with Oolong Tea: People who sip Oolong tea everyday typically burn 12% more fat and 67% more calories each day; without making changes to their diet (healthy meals please!) says USDA physiologist, William U. Rumpler, Ph. D., who led the study.

Oolong Tea helps in preventing activation of carcinogens so that radicals never ever form.

c. Ease bloating with Dandelion Tea: This all-natural tea acts like a diuretic, triggering your body to excrete fluid and blocking absorption of sodium which encourages fluid build up in the body, according to naturopathies physician, Tina Marcantel N.M.D.

d. Boost your brain power with Black Tea: When two of the compounds in Black Tea (thiamine and caffeine) interact, they enhance alpha brain waves, which are proven to help people focus more easily for up to four hours. Black Tea contains other substances that activate memory-boosting neuro-transmitters.

Drinking three cups a day could lower your risk of having a heart attack by 11%.

e. Prevent colon cancer with White Tea: This tea has the power to block colon tumours from forming. In fact, drinking a few cups daily works just as well as taking sulindac, a drug used to combat the disease.

f. Defuzz with Spearmint Tea: Phythotherapy Research has shown that drinking two cups everyday for five days lowers the level of “free” testosterone, the culprit behind most cases of excess facial hair!

It can also relieve nausea and gas; it is an anti-spasmodic that relaxes the gastro-intestinal tract.
