For most of us January is a cold, cold month – perfect for National Hot Tea Month in the U.S.
There are a lot of benefits to tea and a taste for everyone. The two biggest advantages include: acting as an aid in weight loss and helping to ward off colds and flu.
The theory here is that green tea contains catechin, a chemical which has thermogenic properties that promote breaking down fat. Several studies conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and by the International Journal of Obesity support this theory.
Research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences supported the following conclusion: 3 cups of black tea a day produced germ fighting cells giving tea drinks the ability to fight colds and flu better than coffee drinkers
