Health Benefits of Drinking Tea + Teasia Giveaway

Since we have been trying to make more healthy decisions in our day to lives, I have been trying to cut back on the creamer I put into my coffee. I do buy sugar free, but I really need to kick it to the curb. I'm having difficulties doing this. So I started researching and have found that tea is the way to go. Here are some of the health benefits of tea that I have discovered in my research.



Fight Free Radicals. All teas from the camellia sinensis plant are rich in antioxidants known as polyphenols, specifically catechins. Catechins are the key to tea's health benefits - they detoxify cell-damaging free radicals in the body. Although our bodies are designed to fight free radicals on their own - it never hurts to have a little extra help.

Boost Metabolism. Different studies have shown that tea drinking can help maintain a healthy weight and boost metabolism. Green and oolong teas contain polyphenols that help block fat-building enzymes. Another study showed that compared to non-tea drinkers, regular tea drinkers had lower body mass indexes, waist-to-hip rations, as well as less body fat.

Reduce Stress Levels. Black tea has been found to reduce levels of stress hormones and help lower blood pressure. It has also been found to neutralize the negative effects of high-fat meals on arterial blood flow.


Improved Bone Strength. Particularly in the wake of osteoporosis, the polyphenols in tea have been found to improve bone equality and strength. Studies have found that tea drinkers aged 50 and older were 30% less likely to have a hip fracture than non-drinkers.

Heighten Mental Awareness. Drinking tea has been found to facilitate better focus on tasks and improve attention. The caffeine and amino acid theanine in tea is thought to bring psychological benefits to drinkers, strengthening their mood, attention, and performance.

I have been enjoying Teasia Variety Packs for a few days now. What I love is that they are compatible with my Keurig 2.0 which is perfectly convenient. I'm from the south where we brew our sugar right into our tea, so getting use to these teas was a bit of a learning curve for me. I had to go into it thinking they weren't tea almost because I was so use to basically drinking sugar. I'm happy with them and how I feel. The energy is definitely a nice change. My favorite part about buying from is that for every Teasia box you purchase, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to support charities in the areas of environment, education, healthcare, and poverty.
