5 Mind-Blowing Benefits of White Tea

Jul 20, 2017

Many people do not realize the extraordinary benefits of white tea.

Did you know that white tea has been proven to combat various types of cancer; including stomach, prostate, and colon?

In fact, drinking 2 or 3 cups of white tea per day could reduce the risk of a heart attack by roughly 50%.

Read on to learn about the many other benefits of white tea, which are especially potent in the loose leaf form.

Combating Cancer Is One of the Primary Benefits of White Tea

Researchers from the University of New Mexico and University of California Los Angeles performed experiments on the cancer prevention benefits of white tea.

The results were astonishing. Extract from white tea resulted in cell death of two different types of lung cancer cells.

While more research is needed, some studies have indicated a 50% success rate in naturally combating stomach, prostate, and colon cancers.

White Tea Has Anti-Aging Properties

White tea is rich in antioxidants, especially polyphenols, which are well-known to yield anti-aging benefits.

The polyphenols kill off malicious cells that attack your organs and accelerate aging.

White tea also promotes healthy skin as the antioxidant properties allow for the repair of damaged skin. In addition, white tea extract provides protection against sunlight.

Drinking White Tea Can Help Fight Cavities

Very few drinks can be credited with fighting cavities or tooth decay. White tea, on the other hand, is known to strengthen gums and naturally whiten teeth.

Furthermore, the antioxidants in the tea help fight off bacteria in the mouth that lead to cavities and decay.

There Are Numerous Other Health Benefits of White Tea

Reading off the many health benefits makes it sound like white tea is a magical potion. While white tea may not be the holy grail, it does have wide ranging health benefits that could increase your life expectancy.

For instance, white tea is known to lower blood pressure and act as a natural blood thinner. In addition, white tea lowers blood sugar, which decreases the odds of diabetes.

The antioxidants in white tea also boost the immune system, while staving off body aches caused by inflammation and arthritis.  Lastly, white tea is a great option to relieve symptoms of the common cold.

Considering its positive impact on preventing and combating cancerous cells, it is clear that drinking white tea will improve your overall health.

White Tea Can Help You Lose Weight

For those that want to look better, in addition to feeling better, drinking white tea can even produce weight loss results.

While all tea has a positive impact on weight control, studies have proven white tea to be more effective than green or black. White tea prevents the formation of and shortens the life cycle of fat cells.

Many of the ailments described above can be treated with herbal remedies. Simply incorporating white tea into your daily routine is a lifestyle change often recommended by doctors.
