Before dismissing the thought of drinking oolong tea just because it sounds like a mystical-oriental-potion rather than your regular cup of tea, just hear me out. Oolong tea is a lovely, fragrant, and fruity tea with amazing health benefits. If you are a regular tea-drinker or just starting to try teas, oolong is a wonderful option to try, in terms of taste and your long-term health and well-being.
1. Works just like your regular coffee
Teas generally have a bit of a caffeine content; oolong, however, has a slightly higher amount than most teas—nearly as high as black coffee. This means that drinking oolong can help you stay mentally alert, especially on dull mornings or if you’re on for a long night.
2. Helps you slim down
Aside from acting as an energy-booster, this tea can also aid in boosting your metabolism, causing you to shed those extra pounds. This is due to the action of polyphenols in oolong that stunt the enzymes that help create fat. When taken as it is, it will be an effective tool for weight loss.
3. Prevents cancer
Research shows that regular oolong-drinkers have a lower risk of contracting cancers than non-tea drinkers. It is notable that a lot of women have ovarian cancer; drinking around 2 or more cups of oolong (or green/black) tea can actually lower the risk of getting diagnosed with this cancer. Drinking tea may save you from chemotherapy and radiation in the long run.
4. Helps with diabetics and prevents hypertension
One of the benefits of gulping down Oolong is that it helps lower blood sugar. This is good news for diabetics; drinking Oolong tea for about a month helps out with regulating the body’s sugar levels. It is not recommended as a substitute for insulin though; but still, by simply drinking the tea constantly gives quite a benefit when it comes to body glucose levels.
The tea also has a regulating effect on blood pressure, as research shows that regularly consuming Oolong aids in preventing high blood pressure.
Although Oolong tea is not like a prescription drug that we can substitute for medication used to treat erratic sugar levels and soaring blood pressure, drinking it can prove beneficial especially to those struggling with high sugar and blood pressure levels.
5. Makes you look even better
Because oolong tea has a plethora of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in it, it helps combat free radicals in our system, leaving our bodies detoxified, and skin radiant. Regularly consuming it can give us a healthy glow, and helps prevent skin diseases. In addition, consuming oolong can also help you get de-stressed, as it has soothing and relaxing properties
Oolong can prevent plaque from forming into teeth and help avoid cavities—provided you also brush your teeth regularly.
It is great knowing that one tea is capable of this many benefits. Oolong may not seem the crowd favorite like Earl Grey, Green, or Black teas; but surely it is a healthy rockstar among teas. If you haven’t tried Oolong yet, then do so; it may become your favorite.
