10 Reasons Why Tea Is Better Than Coffee
My friends often make fun of me when we taking hot beverages. They think my preference of tea over coffee is a little weird for a person my age. They believe coffee is for some reason the best but the truth is tea is actually better than coffee, taste and health wise.
1. Tea can help strengthen one’s immune system
2. Can help reduce stress. Tea in a lot of cases is used as an anti-depressant. taking a cup when feeling low can help boost your mood.
3. It can also help protect bones. A few studies have proved that drinking the right amount of tea can help in the healthy formation of bones and people who take tea have a lower risk of developing osteoporosis.
4. Can help one shed unwanted kilos. Recent studies have shown that tea, especially green tea can help people who want to lose weight, it is a better substitute as a calorie free drink as opposed to soft drinks.
5. Tea has a lot of antioxidants much more that that you can find in coffee. antioxidants keeps you looking fresh and feeling good .
6. It is easier to make than coffee, all you have to do is place a tea bag in a cup and you are good to go.
7. It is said to help reduce the chances of developing some kind of tumors and cancers.
8. Tea is great at hydrating the body and replenishing one’s fluid intake; it is normally pure water with just a tea flavor and it is important that we take some tea after a hot day as it will replace fluids lost through sweating.
9. Keeps one going for longer. Tea actually has the same amount of caffeine as coffee when taken in the same amounts. they are both stimulants but coffee has a much depressing effect and drains you of your energy so tea is a better option when you want to keep going all day.
10. Good for teeth. You can take tea as much as you want and you would not have to worry about discoloration as is the case with coffee.
