On average, 159 million Americans drink tea daily. According to Chinet, the average tea drinker sips 2.7 cups per day. Also, tea drinkers tend to be extroverts or ambiverts and prefer cats over dogs. They also tend to take sugar in their drink and don’t like coffee because of its caffeine content.
Tea offers numerous health benefits, including the following:
Tea contains antioxidants (polyphenols or flavonoids) which make tea a healthy drink. These chemical compounds control the damaging effects of free radicals in the body which alter DNA by stealing its electrons. This mutated DNA increases LDL cholesterol and alters cell membrane traffic.
Contains Less Caffeine Than Coffee
The average cup of tea contains 26 mg of caffeine while the average cup of coffee contains 95 mg of caffeine. Tea drinkers tend to be average sleepers whereas coffee drinkers tend to be light sleepers due to their higher caffeine intake.
Reduces Your Risk of Heart Attack and Stroke
According to Stroke, an American Heart Association peer-reviewed journal, Japanese stroke survivors who drank at least seven cups of green tea daily lowered their risk of death from any cause by 62% compared to non-tea drinkers.
Helps with Weight Loss
Tea contains a type of flavonoid called catechins that help your body break down fats more quickly and boost metabolism. Also, the caffeine increases your energy use, causing your body to burn more calories.
Helps Protect Your Bones
According to the American Journal of Epidemiology, tea contains phytoestrogen and fluoride, both of which help to maintain bone mineral density. Other research shows that tea protects women against osteoporosis.
Keeps Your Smile Bright
Not only does tea improve overall health, it also improves oral health. Specifically, green tea proves to be good for your gums, teeth, and smile.
