so today i want to talk about Tea. Now I’m quite a huge Tea fan and i enjoy nothing more than a old school breakfast tea but i wanted to go over what would be the best 5 teas to drink while on a health kick or as part of a healthier lifestyle and reasons for these choices and how they would help balance out how you recover from training or a night of drinking while aiding in your training goals.
Number 1- Mint Tea
Why- it helps curb cravings
The smell of pepper mint can suppress your hunger and some reports suggest that drinking a peppermint tea every 2 hours can aid in losing 1 pound a week while having reduced cravings to snack.
Number 2-Chamomile Tea
Why- It aids sleeping and is an anti inflammatory
Chamomile Tea has properties that can be calming and act like a sedative. This can be helpful for insomnia or getting you off to sleep. along side that there is some anti inflammatory properties for digestion post meal and you can gargle it for symptoms of fever or a cold.
Number 3-Ginger Tea
Why- Aids digestion
you can have the best diet in the world but its no good if you can’t absorb the nutrients properly. Ginger will help support the stomach digestives system and can help relieve the symptoms of nausea and motion sickness.
Number 4-Milk Thistle and Dandelion
