The Health Benefits of Chinese Tea
So apart from the long history of tea, tea is also probably good for your health in many different ways.
Digestion and Weight Loss – Many types of tea such as Oolong tea and Pu’er tea can improve the performance of enzymes that break down fat, aid in digestion and promote bowel movement.
Prevent Cancer – Tea in general and green tea in particular contains a large amount of anti oxidants that help prevent cell damage from cancer causing free radicals.
Fight Tooth Decay – Tea contains Polyphenols that prevent tooth decay and fluoride that promotes dental health.
High Blood Pressure – Drinking some types of tea such as Oolong tea has shown to reduce high blood pressure. Possibly due to the relaxing practice of preparing and drinking tea not the actual tea itself.
