Healthy drinking with medicinal teas
There are countless variations of teas and tea blends, whether medicinal tea, herbal tea, green, black or red, they all have one thing in common: they have proven positive and health-promoting properties for the human body. It is not without reason that teas are considered to be one of the oldest medicines in the world and, along with water, are still among the most widely consumed beverages worldwide. There are more than 1,000 different types of tea, varying in taste, colour, intensity and mode of action. While some teas have a calming effect on body and soul, black teas containing caffeine in particular have the opposite effect. They have an invigorating effect and make you feel frisky.
that consist of medicinal herbs are said to have a great healing effect. Numerous medical studies have shown that black and green teas in particular, when combined with ingredients from medicinal herbs, have healing and health-promoting effects. These teas prevent cardiovascular and tumour diseases, as well as tooth decay and other dental diseases, provided that the teas are consumed unsweetened and pure, so that the healing, secondary plant substances can work properly. These include caffeine, trace elements, tannins, polyphenols and yellow and red natural dyes. A long-term Japanese study even showed that people who drink more than 10 cups of tea a day have a significantly lower risk of cancer than people who consume little or no tea. So it is fair to say that real tea is a beneficial drink. Of course, the consumption of sufficient water, filtered and energised, should not be forgotten. 1.5-2 litres per day are recommended.
