Are you ready to become a healthier, happier and more creative you?
No need for a long list of resolutions, just drink tea.
Studies have demonstrated that regular consumption of tea and herbal infusions can not only support an overall healthy lifestyle but can also lift your mood and increase your productivity. It’s perhaps no wonder then, that after water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world.
Good for health and body
Now for some science. The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of the polyphenols present in tea leaves have been appreciated for hundreds of years. But more recent research has demonstrated other benefits associated with drinking tea, such as helping to boost the immune system, preventing allergies, reducing cholesterol and lowering blood pressure.
And, contrary to what many people think, tea is also a fantastic way to keep hydrated - it provides a rich and flavoursome source of water, while also feeding your body with good nutrients. Some scientific studies have suggested that regular tea drinking can help keep body fat down by reducing food cravings, boosting your metabolism and speeding up the burning of calories. Thinking about a “New Year, New You” detox program? You should include tea.
Good for the brain and the mood
At HOUSE OF LILAH we love tea, and we think it’s one of the best drinks for a creative lifestyle. Tea is a rich source of L-theanine, a unique amino acid that encourages mind relaxation without inducing drowsiness. Varieties such as white and green tea, but also herbal infusions including chamomile and liquorice, are amazing stress relievers and ideal for reducing anxiety and soothing a busy mind.
Certain varieties, such as green tea, are also known for strengthening memory cells in the brain, while tea has also been shown to improve attention and clarity. The creative process can sometimes take us in many directions; drinking tea is a great way to create a natural pause, allowing us to organise our energy and ideas.
The amount of caffeine present in tea varies according to the variety, but taken in moderation, it can also be a fantastic energy booster. Some studies have demonstrated that caffeine increases mental and physical capacities, allowing you to release your hidden potential.
