Drinking tea can offer your body many benefits, from helping you lose weight to preventing chronic diseases, so what happens to your body when you drink tea daily?
In a report published by the American magazine "Eat This Not That", the author Kirsten Hickman reviewed the benefits of drinking black and green tea on the immune system, using some studies and various researches.
These are the benefits that you may get when you drink tea daily:
Reducing the risk of diseases such as diabetes and even cardiovascular disease, as most teas contain polyphenols, and according to Harvard Health, polyphenols can help reduce the risk of these diseases.
Polyphenols are antioxidants that have also been shown to help reduce inflammation in the body.
Boosting the immune system, as a study published in the journal Current Pharmaceutical Design showed that polyphenols found in all types of tea, including black and green teas, boost the immune system and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
According to a study published in Pharmacology & Therapeutics, caffeine - found in teas and coffee - is anti-inflammatory and can help boost the immune system.
It should be noted that the "immune effects" mentioned in the study are based on normal human consumption.
It has been scientifically proven that caffeine helps maintain health, but excessive consumption of it can cause some negative side effects.
Help control blood sugar levels, as the plants from which some teas are made contain compounds that help reduce inflammation and control blood sugar levels, that is, antidiabetic effects, according to a study published in Molecules.
Get more water that hydrates the body.
The journal Nutrition Research published a study indicating that too little water can lead to a deterioration of glucose levels in diabetics.
Drinking more tea is an easy way to increase your daily water intake and keep blood sugar levels stable.
Help control your weight, so replacing any sugary drink with tea or black coffee is one of the easy ways to reduce your caloric intake and lose weight.
Scientific data also show that green tea specifically has a role in helping to lose and control weight.
According to the results of a study published in Physiology & Behavior, green tea was shown to help participants lose weight in a 12-week trial period, thanks to the increase in energy consumption and lipid oxidation rates stimulated by the antioxidants in green tea.
