“Ahh yes, jolly good I say!”

Health researchers in Britain say tea can have positive benifits againsts heart disease and some cancers, as well as being a good drink to re-hydrate.  Polyphenol antioxidants are found in many foods and plants, including tea leaves, and have been shown to help prevent cell damage.

Other health benefits seen included protection against tooth plaque and potentially tooth decay, plus bone strengthening. “Drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water. Water is essentially replacing fluid. Tea replaces fluids and contains antioxidants so it’s got two things going for it”, said public health nutritionist Dr Carrie Ruxton at Kings College London.

Dr Ruxton’s team found average tea consumption was just under three cups per day. She said the increasing popularity of soft drinks meant many people were not drinking as much tea as before.

“Tea drinking is most common in older people, the 40 plus age range. In older people, tea sometimes made up about 70% of fluid intake so it is a really important contributor,” she said.

  1. Hi, I work at a company called Gold Group, and we are currently running a campaign for our client Lipton, meant to call attention to the healthy benefits of tea. The Lipton campaign seeks to alleviate some of the work-stress we all accumulate by fighting ‘Indooritis,’ explained to be a condition that results from spending too much time indoors! The site for the campaign is located at http://www.fightindooritis.com, it features some fun activities, messages as well as a rebate for up to $15 savings on Lipton teas! We hope you find the site interesting and are able to share it with your friends and readers.
