Most teas are derived from the Camellia sinensis plant which is native to large portions of China and India and has been cultivated there for many centuries. These teas are known to contain unique antioxidants that research suggests may help in the fight against the free radicals known to contribute to the development of cancer, blocked arteries and heart disease. For this and a range of other reasons green, black, white and oolong teas are known as medicinal teas. At Herbalitea we strive to provide the highest quality medicinal tea available in order to ensure our customers enjoy the greatest possible health benefits from our popular tea blends.
Medicinal Tea from Herbalitea in Richmond Hill
In addition to the experiential evidence accumulated over thousands of years recent scientific data also supports the notion that medicinal tea provides significant health benefits.
- Black tea – Black tea has a robust flavour and a relatively high amount of caffeine compared to other herbal teas. There is evidence to suggest that black tea may in fact help protect the lungs from damage normally caused by cigarette smoke (although to be sure it makes no sense to tempt fate by smoking because of this). Black tea may also help reduce the risk of stroke.
- Green tea – Studies suggest that the antioxidant qualities of green tea may in fact interfere with the development of stomach, lung, breast, pancreatic and colorectal cancers. Further evidence points to green tea’s antioxidants playing a role in reducing the risk of certain neurological disorders as well as reducing the risk of stroke. You may also experience reduced cholesterol levels as a result of drinking green tea on a regular basis.
- Oolong tea – The antioxidants in oolong tea have been found to have a positive effect on lowering the levels of bad cholesterol in the system. In addition there is copious circumstantial evidence to support the notion that oolong can also play a role in helping control weight gain.
- White tea – White tea (which comes from the same Camellia sinensis plant as black tea) has been studied closely in recent years after evidence surfaced that it may contain a number of important anticancer properties and abilities. While more study is needed the early indications seem to support this hypothesis.
