Good afternoon, good morning or good evening. Welcome to my article. I’m glad you ended up here. I imagine you Googled something about chai tea and the old Google machine brought you here to me. I’m sure it was something like “are there any health benefits to drinking chai tea” or “are there health advantages to drinking chai tea.” Had to be something or another along those lines. Well the good news is, you are in the right place. The better news is that you are lucky enough to get to read one of my articles today. And the best news is that there are numerous benefits to drinking chai tea that you can start taking advantage of right away.
Chai tea, like many other teas, is high in antioxidants. Because of this it has enormous health benefits for just about every cell in your body. Antioxidants are a type of molecule that prevent what are called “free radicals” from causing unwarranted cellular damage. And while that probably sounds like boring science mumbo jumbo, what it means is that over the course of your life, preventing unnecessary damage at the cellular level will have enormous benefits for your overall health. Even though the damage free radicals cause is minimal, over the course of your life all the damage starts to add up. This causes unnecessary cell reproduction thus increasing the likelihood for something to go wrong during the process. By preventing this unnecessary cellular damage from happening in the first place you’ll be doing your body an enormous favor. And you can get plenty of antioxidants in a cup of chai tea.
One of the great things about chai tea is that it is the kind of tea that is most commonly drunk in hot form. Because of this it can make a suitable replacement when you are looking for something healthier for you that still hits that itch for a hot caffeinated beverage. Since chai tea is made from a black tea leaves it contains what you would probably consider a moderate amount of caffeine. Which means that you’ll need to drink more cups of chai tea to get the same amount of caffeine as you would from coffee. But the downside to this is that you just drink more tea. Which means you flood your body with even more water, and even more antioxidants. Which are both things that have practically no downside. So if you are looking for a replacement for your cup of joe in the morning, or in the mid afternoon, you should strongly consider making the switch to chai tea. And it won’t even be a hassle where you have to learn to make some complicated new drink in order to switch to something healthier. In fact, every coffee shop I’ve ever been to has had chai tea on the menu. So you’ll be able to pick it up at your favorite local coffee cafe.
Another huge bonus to the fact that you’ll have to drink more chai tea than coffee to get your caffeine fix means that your whole body is literally going to feel more comfortable and more relaxed. And not only will you feel better, you will also look better. See black tea is high in a wide range of vitamins and minerals that are good for your body. In particular though, black tea is high in vitamins and minerals that are good for skin. These include zinc, magnesium, and potassium. That’s right, instead of taking one of those gross vitamin capsules every morning you can just get your vitamins and minerals from a healthy beverage. And on top of the vitamins and minerals keeping your skin healthier, drinking more water than you normally would through consuming the tea will keep your skin flush with water. So chai tea will help you look your best. But how does it help you feel your best?
Well black tea, and chai tea, in particular contains plenty of ingredients that help your body combat inflammation and soothe your pain. By reducing inflammation, chai tea can help you combat everything from muscle soreness after a heavy workout to chronic pain. In fact consuming chai tea can even help prevent you from developing diseases that are related to inflammation such as arthritis.
Well there you have it. A list of some of the best benefits to drinking chai tea that you can take advantage of. It’s kind of crazy how good chai tea is for you. It's almost absurd that coffee is sold in the same place when there is such a healthy alternative right there. You’d think the coffee companies and corporations would want to keep chai tea away from their consumers. But for some reason chai tea hasn’t caught the national culture the way that coffee has. Yet. You can be sure moving forward that you’ll see more and more people making the switch from energy drinks and coffee to healthier alternatives like tea. But especially chai tea when they are looking to scratch that coffee itch. You can even add cream or milk to chai tea and it does nothing to it except make it even more delicious, if a little bit unhealthier. So be sure to give it a try the next time you're in the mood for a hot beverage.
