More on Tea
- Green Tea –Through the ages, green tea and its health benefits have been central to India, China, Japan, and Thailand. Green tea contains many antioxidants.
- Black Tea – Since more research is done on green tea, it’s easy to get the idea that it’s the one to drink for good health. Not true! The health benefits of black tea – which accounts for 80 percent of the tea consumed in the world – are abundant. It’s a powerful source of antioxidants.
- Though some of the tea plant’s most important antioxidants are compromised during the black tea fermentation process, studies show that it still contains useful ones.
- Rooibos Tea – The health benefits of rooibos tea have been known for centuries in South Africa, where the rooibos plant originates. Red rooibos tea is traditionally used to soothe upset stomachs, aid in digestion, and calm nervous tension. An herbal infusion rather than an actual tea, rooibos provides many of the benefits of camellia sinensis without the caffeine.
Rooibos also is popular among athletes. Rooibos tea is a rich source of minerals, which get depleted after a workout. Rooibos is also very low in tannins, which are said to inhibit the absorption of protein and iron.
Besides having none of the negative effects of caffeine, rooibos is thought to have a soothing effect on the nervous system. Some people drink a cup of rooibos tea if they have trouble falling asleep.
