This herbal tea boosts energy levels
A hot cup of tea is what most of us need to end a busy day. And, the best part about this particular drink is that it is versatile. It is often made with a variety of ingredients and flavors in different parts of the world. Apart from its rich taste and flavors, tea is known for its healing properties. One of these interesting drinks is Turkish tea. A page on Instagram called “Nutrition by Lovneet” shares the benefits of Turkish tea which is one of the purest teas in the world. The caption reads: “Traditional Turkish herbal tea is called ‘CAY’ which is a black tea which is served in a small tulip shaped glass. This tea contains a number of health benefits. This means that you you can sip, socialize and benefit your body with every brew.”
Here are some things you need to know about Turkish tea:
1) Black tea is said to contain caffeine and a molecule called L-theanine which has the ability to help increase your alertness and concentration. While L-theanine increases alpha activity in the brain, it provides relaxation and improved focus.
2) It should be noted that this tea contains a group of antioxidants called flavonoids which are beneficial for heart health. These flavonoids can help lower LDL; the “bad” cholesterol that contributes to heart attacks and strokes.
3) Black tea can also affect fat metabolism. It can increase fat oxidation, improve physical performance and prevent obesity.
Well, tea isn’t the only beverage that has an array of health benefits. Have you heard of “golden milk”? An article on the same page, “Nutrition by Lovneet”, states that golden milk is an excellent cure for PCOS. To prepare this drink, you only need four ingredients: coconut milk, raw turmeric, ginger, and whole black pepper. All you have to do is boil some milk and add the mentioned ingredients to it. Bring it to a boil and your golden milk is ready. This PCOS healing drink helps reduce and eliminate inflammation in the body. It also works wonders for improving the texture of your skin. If you have similar symptoms like irregular periods, painful cramps, and nausea caused by hormonal issues, this drink will help you manage them.
Try these drinks whenever possible.
