5 benefits of drinking tea:

1. Antioxidant effect:

Tea contains natural substances – polyphenols, which are antioxidants and can reduce the risk of chronic diseases. According to research, the antioxidant effect of green tea is more powerful than other types of tea. However, during the processing of tea, polyphenols may be destroyed, so the polyphenols content of tea powder and bottled tea will be relatively small. 

2. Weight management:

The caffeine and catechins (a type of polyphenol) in tea can help with weight loss. However, caffeine-free green tea does not seem to have the effect of weight loss. 

3. Heart health:

People who drink tea regularly can help maintain heart health. Relevant studies have shown that people who regularly drink green tea or black tea have a reduced risk of heart disease. 

4. Diabetes:

The catechins in green tea help control blood sugar and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. 

5. Cancer:

Tea drinkers may have a lower risk of certain types of cancer, but more evidence is needed to confirm whether they can reduce the risk of those cancers.
