Benefits of Earl Grey
Good for Your Teeth - Tea contains very high levels of catechin, an antioxidant that fights oral infections. Fluoride is also a natural component of Earl Grey tea, and it’s also found in tap water. Fluoride is good for your teeth because it protects them from cavities, as well as fighting decay.
Digestion - Earl Grey tea has been known to improve digestion. It aids in the digestive process and helps relieve painful indigestion, colic, and nausea. It is also used to treat intestinal problems such as worms. Because it helps the digestive process, it can also help you maintain regular bowel movements.
Fights Anxiety and Depression - The bergamot in Earl Grey tea has been known to have a calming effect on people, as well as to boost a person’s mood. This is due to bergamot’s natural aromatherapy qualities. In this way, Earl Grey is a good natural solution for people suffering from depression, stress, and anxiety.
Energy - It may not have as much of a kick as coffee, but it does contain enough caffeine to give you a nice little afternoon boost without keeping you up all night. Earl Grey tends to have a higher caffeine content than other types of tea.
Cancer Prevention - Earl Grey contains high quantities of antioxidants, which helps our bodies to fight off free radicals that cause diseases such as cancer. Therefore, drinking the tasty beverage can increase your chances of not developing such diseases. On a slightly less serious note, antioxidants also help your skin to stay healthy and looking young. Again, this is due to fighting free radicals that can damage your skin.
Weight Loss - Unsurprisingly, one of the most popular effects of Earl Grey tea is weight loss. This is primarily due to its citrus extract. It’s because of this that many people believe that citrus fruits, in general, can induce weight loss. It’s thought that calories are either broken down into food for your muscles or released through the natural metabolic process. So instead of cream or sugar, try putting lemon in your future cups of tea instead.
Prevention of Heart Disease - According to research, drinking three cups of Earl Grey tea daily may help lower your risk for heart disease. A study published in 2012 in Preventive Medicine found that people who drank three cups of black tea daily dramatically lowered their blood triglyceride levels and increased the ‘good cholesterol’ HDL after three months. The participants also had increased levels of antioxidants, which, as we now know, fight against free radicals that damage your cells.
Further research conducted by the University of Catanzaro in Italy has also yielded positive results. A study of over two hundred patients with high levels of blood fats found that LDL (also know as "bad cholesterol") was reduced by 39% after a month of taking Earl Grey extract. It also reduced blood sugars by 22% and raised "good" cholesterol by 41%. The reduction in blood sugar also shows that Earl Grey may be highly beneficial for those suffering from diabetes.
Stress Relief - Unlike the effects of coffee, Earl Grey tea relaxes and soothes the body almost instantly. It also has a stress relief effect whilst simultaneously providing the same clarity and focus as coffee. This makes it the perfect alternative for those who don’t want to get overly wired from coffee.
Cold Relief - The bergamot found within Earl Grey is said to improve the immune system as well as cure fevers. As such, it’s considered to be a natural cold remedy.
It Keeps You Hydrated - This is not just because you take it with water. Unlike the dehydrating properties of coffee, tea helps you stay hydrated and maintains the body’s fluid balance because of its high potassium content.
