Tea is the most popular drink on the planet behind water. Not only does tea provide hydration but it boasts an abundance of health benefits. One cup of tea may contain up to five times more antioxidants than any fruit or vegetable. Antioxidants are disease fighting compounds that studies suggest may help prevent certain types of cancers, keep your heart nice and healthy, burn fat and make you feel more focused amongst several other health benefits. Additional studies have found that some teas may help with cancer, heart disease and diabetes, encourage weight loss (green tea/white tea), lower cholesterol and stimulate mental alertness. Not surprising, tea also appears to have antimicrobial qualities.
