Are you a coffee or a tea person? I’m both. Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon. And while I love coffee a little bit more, I have to admit that tea is much better for me, or anyone.
Not all teas are the same, of course – some have more health benefits than others, but it seems as if there is a tea for every problem you may have. Here is a little tea guide:
Green Tea: This common and popular tea can lower cholesterol and help to burn fat. It can even prevent the clogging of arteries!
Lemon Ginger Tea: Lemon combined with ginger are said to be natural immune-boosters and can even help to fight bacteria. This tea can therefore support your body during cold and flu season. Ginger is also recommended when feeling nauseous.
Peppermint Tea: This tea is not only very refreshing (especially when cold), but it also helps you when you feel bloated as it relieves muscles.
Chamomile Tea: The flowers of the chamomile plant have a calming effect, which is why chamomile tea is recommended before going to bed or if you are struggling with insomnia.
Rooibos Tea: Listen up, ladies! This tea will make your skin glow as it is full of antioxidants. Moreover, it contains Vitamin C; the perfect health-kick-tea!
Dandelion Tea: This one’s not as common, but you might want to look out for it during your next visit to a health store as dandelion tea has detoxifying qualities and supports a healthy liver function.
White Tea: White tea contains the least amount of caffeine and can boost your metabolism.
The bottom line is that your body will benefit from any kind of tea, but knowing the effects of different teas will make it easier to make a smart choice when it’s tea time.
