11 Benefits of Black Tea

Please like and share!                 blog black tea

Have you ever heard people criticizing your choices in having caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee? Though over-indulging in anything will have negative consequences, having an extra cup of black tea might not be as bad as you might have imagined.

Personally I love my perfect cup of tea. It’s how I like to begin my day—not to help me wake up, but rather I like to enjoy a tasteful cup of bliss first thing in the morning. When it comes to herbal, green or black tea, different things suit different people and a doctor’s recommendation should never be overlooked, but for most of us, indulging in a cup or two of black tea might in fact be a healthy life choice, as some studies have shown.

Both green and black tea are made from a shrub called Camellia Sinesis, but with different processing methods. In addition to the leaves being withered, rolled and heated, black tea leaves are fermented before the final heating process.

Below are 11 health benefits of having a cup or two of black tea on a regular basis, though it should be noted that it is recommended that black tea should be consumed without any additives like milk or sugar to truly harness its benefits.

1. Oral Health: Studies funded by the Tea Trade Health Research Association suggests that black tea reduces plaque formation as well as restricts bacteria growth that promotes the formation of cavities and tooth decays. Polyphenols found in black tea kill and surpass cavity-causing bacteria as well as hinder the growth of bacterial enzymes that form the sticky-like material that binds plaque to our teeth.

2. A Better Heart: As identified by Arab L. et al. in their 2009 research paper called “ Green and black tea consumption and risk of stroke: a meta-analysis”, it is seen that regardless of people’s country of origin, individuals who consume 3 or more cups of tea had a 21% lower risk of a stroke than people who consume less than 1 cup of green or black tea per day.

3. Antioxidants: Black tea contains polyphenols, which are also antioxidants that help block DNA damage associated with tobacco or other toxic chemicals. These antioxidants are different from those obtained from fruits and vegetables and therefore as a regular part of our diet they can provide additional benefits towards a healthy lifestyle.

4. Cancer Prevention: Though a lot more research is required to confidently suggest cancer prevention techniques, some research over the years suggests that antioxidants like polyphenol and catechins in tea may help prevent some types of cancer. It has been suggested that women who drink black tea regularly have a lower chance of ovarian cancer than their counterparts.

5. Healthy Bones: It has also been suggested that regular tea drinkers have stronger bones and lower probability of developing arthritis due to the phytochemicals found in tea.

6. Lower Risk of Diabetes: Based on a research study conducted of elderly people living in the Mediterranean islands it was discovered that people that had been consuming black tea on a long-term basis on a moderate level (i.e 1-2 cups a day) had a 70% lower chance of having or developing type 2 diabetes.

7. Stress Relief: We all are aware and well experienced about the calming and relaxing benefits of black tea. Not only does it help slow you down after a long day, studies show that the amino acid L-theanine found in black tea can help you relax and concentrate better. Black tea has also been shown to reduce levels of the stress hormone cortisol when consumed in moderate amounts on a regular basis.

8. Better Immune System: Black tea contains alkylamine antigens that help boost our immune response. In addition it also contains tannins that have the ability to fight viruses and hence keep us protected from influenza, stomach flu and other such commonly found viruses in our everyday lives.

9. Healthy Digestive Tract: In addition to improving your immune system, tannins also have a therapeutic effect on gastric and intestinal illnesses and also help decrease digestive activity.

10) Increased Energy: Unlike other drinks that have a relatively higher caffeine content, the low amounts found in tea can help enhance blood flow to the brain without over-stimulating the heart. It also stimulates the metabolism and respiratory system, as well as the heart and the kidneys.

11) Happiness Factor: If a perfect cup of tea makes you smile and lets your heart indulge a little, then what could possibly be the harm?

Why A Magnesium Deficiency Is “Invisible” & How It’s Affecting Your Health Right Now

It has been dubbed the “invisible deficiency,” an appropriate title considering only 1 percent of magnesium in your body is distributed in your blood, meaning that samples of magnesium from serum magnesium blood tests are considerably useless.

It’s estimated that about 80 percent of Americans are deficient in magnesium today, with the recommended daily intake for men being 420mg and 320mg for women. However, as explained by Dr. Carolyn Dean, a medical and naturopathic doctor, even this recommended amount is merely only enough to ward of deficiency symptoms. 

What’s Important About Magnesium?

Magnesium is a mineral used by nearly every organ and muscle in your body, including your heart and kidneys. While previously it was thought that magnesium’s primary benefits were exclusive to the heart and bones, recent research has discovered 3,751 magnesium-binding sites on human proteins, indicating a more substantial role for magnesium in our overall health and the prevention of disease.

Furthermore, magnesium has been found in over 200 different human enzymes, indicating its role in the detoxification process of various environmental toxins. Dr. Carol Dean points out a few key benefits of magnesium:

  • Activating muscles and nerves
  • Creating energy in your body by activating adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
  • Helping digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats
  • Serving as a building block for RNA and DNA synthesis
  • Acting as a precursor for neurotransmitters like serotonin

What Magnesium Deficiency Is Associated With

Dr. Dean is the author of The Magnesium Miracle, a book which investigates 22 significant health disorders associated with magnesium deficiency. Some of these disorders include:

Anxiety and panic attacks Asthma Blood clots
Bowel diseases Cystitis Depression
Detoxification Diabetes Fatigue
Heart disease Hypertension Hypoglycemia
Insomnia Kidney disease Liver disease
Migraine Musculoskeletal conditions (fibromyalgia, chronic back pain) Nerve problems
Obstetrics and gynecology (PMS, infertility) Osteoporosis Raynaud’s syndrome
Tooth decay

Early signs of magnesium deficiency include loss of appetite, headache, nausea, fatigue and weakness.

Magnesium’s Connection To Cancer & Chronic Disease

Studies suggest a direct relationship between magnesium and insulin sensitivity and glucose regulation, particularly if you are of high risk already. Higher magnesium intake reduces risk of impaired glucose and insulin metabolism and slows progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes in middle-aged Americans.

Also important to note is how research has shown a direct correlation between high levels of magnesium and higher bone mineral density.

Higher dietary magnesium levels is also associated with lower cases of colorectal cancer.

Here is what Dr. Dean had to say about this,

Results from the meta-analysis indicated that for every 100-mg increase in magnesium intake, the risk of colorectal tumor decreased by 13 percent, while the risk of colorectal cancer was lowered by 12 percent. The researchers noted magnesium’s anti-cancer effects may be related to its ability to reduce insulin resistance, which may positively affect the development of tumors.

Dietary And Lifestyle Factors That Influence Your Magnesium Levels

It is true that green leafy vegetable such as kale and spinach are great sources of magnesium. It is also true that magnesium can be sourced from beans, nuts, and sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds. However, what most don’t realize is that due to the degradation of our soil today, a higher percentage of dietary magnesium has been lost. 100 years ago we may have found 500mg of magnesium in our soil, while today we are lucky to receive 200mg.

Another factor infringing your body’s ability to absorb magnesium is the presence of glyphosate, a popular herbicide that acts by blocking the absorption of micronutrients in the body. Glyphosate is heavily used by Monsanto (GMO).

Drinking alcohol can also interfere with mineral uptake by blocking the absorption of vitamin D, a nutrient that regulates mineral uptake.

Here are a few more factors that could interfere with your magnesium levels:

  • Excessive intake of soda or caffeine
  • Menopause
  • Older age (older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption)
  • Certain medications, including diuretics, certain antibiotics (such as gentamicin and tobramycin), corticosteroids (prednisone or Deltasone), antacids, and insulin
  • An unhealthy digestive system, which impairs your body’s ability to absorb magnesium (Crohn’s disease, leaky gut, etc.)

Some Final Tips On Increasing Your Magnesium Levels

Juicing is a powerful way to condense and receive your vitamins and minerals. Be sure to use dark green vegetables for a strong, bio-available magnesium punch.

When it comes to magnesium supplements, you are going to find the magnesium bound to another molecule because magnesium isn’t available by itself.

Magnesium threonate and citrate are some of the best sources, as it seems to penetrate cell membranes, including your mitochondria, which results in higher energy levels. Additionally, it also penetrates your blood-brain barrier and seems to do wonders to treat and prevent dementia and improve memory. For more information on magnesium supplements, click HERE and scroll to the bottom.

You’ll know if you are taking too much magnesium if you feel your stool is too runny. Too little magnesium can lead to constipation.

Epsom salt baths are also a great way to absorb magnesium through the skin. However, avoid any product containing magnesium stearate, a common but potentially hazardous additive.
