WE HEAR THAT TEA IS GOOD FOR BEAUTY AND HEALTH BUT WHEN SHOULD WE DRINK IT TO GET THE BENEFIT?
TO WAKE UP IN THE MORNING
Tea contains caffeine, which acts on the central nervous system to help you wake up.
Hot tea also warms the body, making it move more easily, and the refreshing aroma of tea through the nose is a pleasant stimulant to the brain.
It is not clear whether this is caffeine, which has an awakening function, but in Japan there seems to have been a long-held feeling that drinking tea in the morning is good for you.
WITH THE MEAL
Tea before meals gives a warm feeling in the stomach and makes you feel hungry, just like when you drink aperitifs.
Tea during the meal helps to cleanse the mouth each time and to enjoy the flavours of different foods.
After the meal, tea helps to wash away food residue and oil and refreshes the mouth.
Science also reveals how we feel when we eat.
Several constituents of tea, including caffeine, catechins, flavonoids, polysaccharides and fluoride, help regulate the gastrointestinal tract and food-induced changes in the body.
Caffeine stimulates gastric juice secretion, while polysaccharides counteract the rapid rise in blood sugar levels.
Catechins help prevent food poisoning and, together with chlorophyll and other compounds, help prevent bad breath. Fluoride makes teeth stronger and less prone to cavities.
FOR SPORT AND STRENUOUS ACTIVITY
What beverage do you prefer for hydration during sports?
Mineral water and sports drinks have their own unique flavours, but tea is also a recommended drink for sport.
The caffeine in tea has a stimulating effect, stimulating the central nervous system and encouraging muscles to work properly.
Caffeine and catechins also help break down and burn lipids in the body.
This property has earned some tea drinks containing catechins the "Food for Specified Health Uses" certificate.
