Tea is indeed a miracle beverage. It’s bursting with health benefits that are hard to believe.

The health benefits of tea are largely because of its high content of flavonoids which are plant derived compounds called antioxidants. These antioxidants protect the body from damage caused, by neutralizing the highly reactive free radicals.

Studies have found that drinking tea might help lower the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes, encourages weight loss and lowers cholesterol. Tea with its potent bioactive compounds is also believed to have antimicrobial qualities that inhibit microorganisms, is good for oral health, improves brain function and physical performance and helps boost the immune system amongst many other benefits.
