Drinking Hot Tea at the Spa
What are the reasons we offer hot tea at our spa?
Actually, there are quite a few! Below are just some of them that we believe are very important for your health.
- Endurance. This is directly related to the Antioxidants. Tea (especially green tea is full of them. They also help to burn fat as fuel. That along is one of the reasons to drink tea.
- Hydration. In spite of caffeine, tea hydrates your body wonderfully!
- Heart problems. You could reduce the risk, as tea has been proven to improve your cardio-vascular system overall.
- Cancer. It has been observed that people who conduct a healthy life style prefer drinking tea more often. Statistically, such individuals have less chances to get sick with cancer. Is it the tea drinking that does the trick? Although no direct relationship is scientifically proven, the facts speak for themselves. If you drink tea and have a healthy diet, you will significantly reduce your chances to get a cancer.
- DNA damaging disease. Tea is high in oxygen radical absorbance capacity. It is a another way of saying that it helps destroy free radicals (which can damage DNA) in the body. While our bodies are designed to fight free radicals on their own, they’re not 100 percent effective — and since damage from these radical oxygen ninjas has been linked to cancer, heart disease and neurological degeneration, we’ll take all the help we can get.
- Parkinson’s disease. Again, it’s not a universal cure, but when considered with other factors like smoking, physical activity, age and body mass index, regular tea drinking was associated with a lowered risk of Parkinson’s in both men and women.
- Diabetes. Some research in that area shows proof that tea could be beneficial to people with Type 2 diabetes. It simply helps processing sugars to people who have problems with that.
- Bone health. In our time osteoporosis is becoming a widespread problem. Green tea has been found to improve bone mineral density and overall strength.
- Alzheimer’s disease. Tea can help to prevent and might be an effective agent in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. While many factors influence brain health, natural polyphenols in green tea can help maintain the parts of the brain that regulate learning and memory.
