BENEFITS AND PROPERTIES OF Earl Gray Tea
Studies suggest that black tea reduces plaque formation and restricts the growth of bacteria that promote tooth decay and cavities. The polyphenols found in black tea kill and outcompete the bacteria that cause cavities, as well as hinder the growth of bacterial enzymes that form the sticky material that binds plaque to our teeth.
A better heart
According to various studies, it is observed that, regardless of people's country of origin, people who consume 3 or more cups of tea have a 21% lower risk of a stroke than people who consume less than 1 cup of green or black tea daily.
Black tea contains polyphenols, which are also antioxidants that help block DNA damage associated with tobacco or other toxic chemicals. These antioxidants are different from those obtained from fruits and vegetables and therefore as a regular part of our diet can provide additional benefits towards a healthy lifestyle.
It has also been suggested that regular tea drinkers have stronger bones and a lower chance of developing arthritis due to the phytochemicals found in tea.
Lower risk of diabetes
Based on a research study conducted with older people living on the Mediterranean islands, it was found that people who had consumed long-term black tea at a moderate level (i.e. 1-2 cups a day) had 70% less likely to have or develop type 2 diabetes.
We all know and have a lot of experience about the calming and relaxing benefits of black tea. Not only does it help you relax after a long day, studies show that the amino acid L-theanine found in black tea can help you relax and focus better.
Black tea has also been shown to lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol when consumed in moderate amounts on a regular basis.
Better immune system
Black tea contains alkylamine antigens that help stimulate our immune response. In addition, it also contains tannins that have the ability to fight viruses and therefore keep us protected from influenza, stomach flu, and other viruses commonly found in our daily lives.
Healthy digestive tract
In addition to improving your immune system, tannins also have a therapeutic effect on gastric and intestinal diseases and also help decrease digestive activity.
Unlike other beverages that have a relatively higher caffeine content, the low amounts found in tea can help improve blood flow to the brain without overstimulating the heart. It also stimulates the metabolism and the respiratory system, as well as the heart and kidneys.
