Tea a partner for a healthy

Studies have indicated that drinking black or green tea as a part of a diet that meets with dietary guidelines may help maintain normal, healthy heart function. Drinking 2 to 3 cups of black or green tea per day may support normal healthy vascular function. Though the mechanism bringing about this effect is yet to be fully ascertained, research suggest that tea flavonoids may be responsible for this effect."Scientific support is strongest for the protection of DNA from oxidative damage after black or green tea consumption."

Hydration is considered an essential aspect of a healthy lifestyle. It is well known to be fundamental to physical and mental performance measures such as concentration, alertness performance in sports. It is generally agreed that healthy adults are expected to consume 74 fluid ounces (2.2 liters) in the case of women, and 101 fluid ounces (3.0 liters) for men per day. Tea without milk and sugar, thus virtually with no calories, and with the benefits of its flavonoid content is therefore considered a beneficial partner for a healthy lifestyle.

However, it must be noted that although tea has several health benefits it is not a substitute for a balanced diet inclusive of fruit and vegetables that provide the essential nutrients such as vitamins and minerals and regular exercise.
