6 health benefits of black tea
A cup or two of black tea is good for your health.
Here are 6 of them.
Black tea contains antioxidants called polyphenols which help block DNA damage associated with tobacco and other toxic chemicals.
Better oral health
Black tea can help reduce the build up of plaque in the mouth. It also prevents the growth of bacteria that causes cavities and tooth decays.
Helps improve the health of the heart
Research conducted in 2009 revealed that people who consumed black and green tea reduced their chances of getting a stroke by 21 percent.
Helps to relieve stress
Black tea reportedly helps to calm one down. This is due to the amino acid L-theanine found in black tea. Black tea reduces the levels of the stress hormone cortisol when consumed in moderate amounts.
Improves the immunity system
Black tea contains alkylamine antigens that help boost one’s immunity.
It also contains tannins which fight viruses such as influenza and the stomach flu.
Tannins help to reduce intestinal illnesses and decreases digestive activity.
