How Tea Can Help You Be Your Healthiest Self
In order to live a healthy life, you must treat your body with respect and allow it to function in its most natural form. That includes eating a healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats, participating in an active lifestyle that encourages exercise, getting enough sleep every night to feel rested and reenergized for the following day, drinking water and staying hydrated, and having good mental health and low levels of stress and anxiety. Although tea itself cannot automatically create a healthy lifestyle, it fits well into all of the aspects listed above and can aid in helping you be your healthiest self.
Bodily Benefits of Tea
Tea has been used for centuries in alternative medicine. Research shows that drinking tea has been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Green tea specifically, has been clinically shown to aid in weight loss and increase metabolism. Tea leaves contain polyphenols, particularly catechins and epicatechins, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. When accompanied by a healthy lifestyle, there are benefits to drinking tea and using it in your daily life.
Clarity & Mental Health
Most people talk about the bodily benefits of tea, but if you suffer from stress, anxiety, or depression, a soothing cup of tea may help you alleviate your symptoms and allow you to feel better mentally. Several teas can help with relaxation and help foster a better night’s sleep. For mental health and wellness, try sipping a daily cup of chamomile or our wellness mood boosting blend.
Reset Your Mind & Body with Tea
If you have been going through a lot lately, whether it is physical, mental, or both, try to reset your mind and your body with tea. A tea cleanse can help you focus and recenter on how you want to live your life. How you do the tea cleanse is up to you, and we recommend that you speak to your doctor before beginning any extreme dietary changes. It may be beneficial to try one day of a tea cleanse or to practice intermittent fasting with tea.
