In a recent article, British researchers “claimed that drinking at least three cups of tea a day can help keep your teeth in good condition, reducing the risk of decay.” I have always heard that green tea in particular is “healthy” for your body in some way, but it is interesting to know that it is not the only one that can be good for you to drink. Tea is hydrating and its herbal content is helpful as well.
The article emphasizes 2 teas in particular with health benefits:
- Black tea fights decay (even with sugar added)
- Green tea helps neutralize bad breath
Some of the pluses for drinking tea are:
- Protects against tooth loss
- Increase weight loss
- Reducing risk of dental cavities
- Keeps you hydrated
- May reduce risk of heart attack and stroke
- Boosts your immune system
- Generally has less caffeine than coffee
- Can increase your metabolism
- Does not contain any calories!
Teas are certainly a good alternative to soft drinks as well, which contain so much sugar! In one 21 oz medium fast-food cup of coke there are about 44 grams of sugar. My favorite teas are the herbal teas that contain natural ingredients to help calm you down for the evening and aid you in sleeping better! 😉
But if drinking tea can help your health and prevent cavities, then it is definitely worth a try!
