Drinking Tea As Good As Drinking Water
Researchers say drinking tea three cups or more a day is as good as drinking water. Not only will it rehydrate your body as well as water, but it might even give you the extra health benefits that water does not give you.
Three cups or more a day is as good as drinking water.
Dr. Carrie Ruxton, along with her colleagues in Kings College London, examined published studies on the health benefits of drinking tea. Her team found clearly and evidently, that drinking 3-4 cups of tea per day can reduce the possibility of heart attack, protect against tooth plague, strengthen bones, and may even prevent tooth decay.
“Drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water. Water is essentially replacing fluid. Tea replaces fluids and contains antioxidants so it’s got two things going for it.”
– Dr. Carrie Ruxton
Experts believe that flavonoids is the key ingredient to the health benefits of tea consumption. These polyphenol antioxidants, found in virtually all plants, can protect our cells from toxins and other pollutant damages. They are the reason why plants have all the wonderful hues of orange, yellow red and green. [The Health Age]
