What better way to start the year than making a deliberate effort to drink more tea instead of sodas and juices. Even sugar-free and reduced sugar beverages have been shown medically to not be as benign as we once thought. Tea, on the other hand, has always been good and will always be healthy. Some of the health benefits include...
- +great source of antioxidants to counteract the unhealthy items in our diet such as unhealthy fats
- +reduced blood pressure
- +decreased risk of stomach cancer in women
- +weight loss (tends to decrease hunger)
True teas as the best, but herbal teas such as peppermint and ginger which can help with upset stomachs and conditions such as IBS and nausea are much better than soda any day.
To your health,
