Often clients ask me at the start of their lifestyle change if they should give up their morning coffee and switch to tea. I always tell them that I am here to educate them, but will never tell them to give up something they love. Today, I am providing some benefits of tea so you can determine what is best for you.
- Most teas are lower in caffeine. A cup of coffee runs about 110-180mg of caffeine while a cup of strong black tea averages about 60mg.
- Tea protects against cancer. Studies have show that tea slowed tumor growth.
- There are many options of tea—ranging from delicate green to strong black.
- Tea can help with weight loss.
- Tea is good for your heart, can help reduce cholesterol and lower blood pressure.
- Tea can be cheaper compared to coffee.
- Tea helps kill bacteria in the mouth, which prevents tooth decay and fights cavities.
