We often ask ourselves is tea healthier than coffee this article will try to solve that question for you so you can easily sit back and enjoy a cuppa.
The first argument for coffee lies in a recent Harvard study which says that those who drink about three to five cups of coffee a day may be less likely to die prematurely from some diseases than those who drink less or no coffee. A rich source of antioxidants, regular coffee consumption has also been linked to protection against type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s, and certain cancers. Coffee has a much higher caffeine content when compared to teas. Caffeine is a stimulant if you have high blood pressure it is recommended you have less than 4 cups a day as it can cause short but drastic spikes in your blood pressure. If you happen to be sensitive to caffeine you may feel jittery or anxious. Moderation is highly advised.
While one can never go wrong with tea. Rich in antioxidants it fights off inflammation while also stopping blood vessels from getting jammed by cholesterol. Tea drinkers are famous for the fact that they have lesser chances of heart attacks, strokes or any kind of heart diseases. Tea drinking in the long term helps fight off age related illnesses aswell. Drink tea and stay young!
The only downside is purely cosmetic. Tea stains the teeth causing them to be a shade yellow.
In the end I say that one should have both. A cup of coffee in the morning then atleast 3 cups of tea in the entire day.
