Tea connoisseurs rave about this tea as being an equally stupendous beverage for any time of the day, given the plethora of proven health benefits. Assam Black Tea, like any other crop, is tastier and more nutritious when it is grown and sourced responsibly. Here are the top 5 proven health benefits of Assam Black Tea (this is not an exhaustive list of benefits!).
Helps to Lose Weight and Stay in Shape
Assam Black Tea contains flavonoids that help in weight loss, without side effects, given their anti-obesity properties. Regular consumption of this tea accelerates and strengthens the metabolic activity of the body, which helps with fat loss and effective weight management. If weight loss is what you are aiming for, drink Assam Black Tea, without the addition of milk and sweeteners. Do check with your doctor before adding anything to your diet, especially if you are unwell and or on medication.
Maintains Optimal Blood Sugar
Assam Black Tea contains natural antioxidants, which help prevent diabetes, by bringing down and keeping blood sugar control. This tea also contains compounds such as theaflavins, tannins, and EGCG. These compounds help to accelerate the production of insulin in the body, thereby preventing spikes in blood sugar.
Promotes Healthy and Beautiful Skin
Assam Black Tea, as mentioned, contains several natural compounds, all of which contribute to nourishing the skin and keeping it healthy. It also contains significant amounts of Vitamins A and E – the essential ‘nutrients’ for healthy skin. When had in the right quantities, Assam Black Tea helps to purify the blood, which in turn keeps the skin fresh, healthy, and supple.
Enhanced Cognitive Function
Among the top health benefits of Assam Black Tea, is the effect of its natural antioxidants on the cognitive functions of the body. The high amounts of these beneficial compounds reduce oxidative stress in the brain, thereby reducing the risk of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and other neurodegenerative diseases. Additionally, this tea elevates mental focus and alertness and improves the cognitive functions of the brain. Assam Black Tea is therefore a great morning tea, while also great to ensure concentration and alertness through a tough work day.
Boosts the Immune System
With the increase in environmental, food, and water pollutants and seasonal disorders, having a robust immune system is critical to one’s health. Assam Black Tea is one of nature’s gifts to the immune system since its antioxidants keep coughs, colds, seasonal flu, and other illnesses. The theaflavins are known to retard viruses that cause Hepatitis C, influenza, and even HIV. Recent studies revealed that the compounds present in Assam Black tea could be one of the main components to impede the SARS-CoV2 virus (the virus that wreaked havoc in the form of the Covid19 pandemic)
There are several more such health benefits of Assam Black Tea and experts recommend incorporating this tea into one’s diet. It is a natural and healthy way to prevent chronic illnesses and seasonal disorders, and maintain one’s overall health. Packed full of antioxidants, this tea is an elixir of health, naturally. Do check with your doctor on the optimal amounts of this tea, particularly if you suffer from some illness and or are on medication for any reason. Wishing you health the natural way!
