Cutting Edge Science Proves Amazing Health Benefits of Tea

| by Mitzi Dulan

For thousands of years, and reaching to the far corners of the
world, tea has been considered a potent elixir of life. Used to treat
everything from anxiety to acne to liver disease, tea was the “cure
all” medicine of choice. Now, cutting edge scientific research is
proving that we have been right all along.

The powerful health benefits of tea can be attributed to compounds
called flavonoids. These naturally occurring antioxidants are a major
defense against free radicals in the body that cause various diseases.
Studies have shown that drinking 2-8 cups of tea a day can help lower
cholesterol, reduce signs of aging, and protect against cancer,
osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease and obesity.

All-natural, antioxidant-rich, and calorie-free, it’s no surprise
that tea is the most popular beverage in the world after water. But
with so many types to choose from—white, green, yerba mate, black,
etc.—which one works best for you?

Pour yourself a nice cup of tea and read on to learn more…
