Sip Some Tea

Many people like sipping on something throughout the day, but what we choose to sip on can have negative versus positive impacts on our health. Choosing tea can help you steer away from unnecessary sugars found in juices and sodas, while still giving you lots of flavor, and providing many health benefits! You can choose your tea based on what type of health benefits you would like. Black tea combats inflammation and supports healthy immune function. Green tea also combats inflammation, helps lower blood pressure and cholesterol, boosts heart health, and may combat certain cancers. Both green and black teas provide a caffeine boost. Oolong tea is also anti-inflammatory, can help reduce anxiety and prevent cognitive diseases, cancer, and type 2 diabetes, and can increase alertness and attention. Chamomile reduces stress and improves relaxation and sleep. Peppermint can help with digestion and provide relief from headaches and migraines. Ginger tea relieves nausea, combats inflammation, and stimulates the immune system. Lemon balm tea supports cognitive health. And this is just to name a few. Whatever health issue you would like to address, there is probably a tea that can help, so start exploring!
