I have some friends that swear by tea (Jane, I'm looking at you.) And now there is lot of research to back them up. Here are a list of teas an how they effect the body.
GREEN TEA: BURNS FAT. Yep. It has EGCG, a substance that could help metabolize fat faster.
CHAMOMILE: MOOD LIFTER. This herb helps lessen negative feelings by 20 to 30 percent. The flavonoids in the flower may increase dopamine and serotonin. Happy hormones!
HIBISCUS: IMMUNITY BUILDER: Lots of vitamin C can help you boost your immunity and firm up skin. NO DOWNSIDE. One cup has close to 60% your daily requirement of Vitamin C.
GINGER: REDUCES HUNGER. Trying to eat less? Enjoy a cup of tangy ginger tea. best if sipped with a small meal.
PEPPERMINT TEA: MUSCLE RELAXER. Peppermint oil can relax the muscles and reduce stomach pain. Great for easing a tummy ache or helping with digestion.
