Did you know tea is not just the nation’s favourite brew, it’s also good for your health too?
According to research, tea includes an antioxidant called polyphenols and also has phytochemicals. It’s also full of antioxidants that may help protect against cancers.
It also suggests drinking tea could help reduce the risk of a heart attack and it is linked with a lower risk of Parkinson’s disease.
Even with the caffeine content, tea is hydrating so is a nice alternative to a glass of plain water.
Tea could also keep waist circumference in check and may even be effective in the prevention and treatment of neurological diseases.
Although there’s many ways it can be good for your health, it’s important not to assume its definitive and a cure for all. One thing is for sure though, we could all benefit from a sit down and the chance to chat and catch up with friends and family. This is something we strongly recommend our carers do when visiting service users.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab a cuppa!
