worldisminesGetting into drinking quality loose leaf tea...... Love this stuff. This is a black cream earl grey tea leave. It's superior quality and tastes fantastic. The lil boat is my steeper, it floats and hold the tea underneath. My mug is the 9-5 rat race.
Here's what i have found from some studies about the potential health benefits of tea:
Tea may help against free radicals that can contribute to cancer, heart disease, and clogged arteries.
Teas also have caffeine and theanine, which affect the brain and seem to heighten mental alertness.
Tea’s antioxidants may interfere with the growth of bladder, breast, lung, stomach, pancreatic, and colorectal cancers; prevent clogging of the arteries, burn fat, counteract oxidative stress on the brain, reduce risk of neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, reduce risk of stroke, and improve cholesterol levels.
studies have shown that black tea may protect lungs from damage caused by exposure to cigarette smoke. It also may reduce the risk of stroke.
worldisminesCan never go wrong with a big ass salad. Dinner last night with @jennios8 she made the chicken, salmon and salad I made the dressing. Great trade. Dressing made with flaxseed oil, aged balsamic and a gourmet spice mix. Honestly made in 10 seconds. These dressing bowls help me always remember the correction salad dressing portion. flaxseed oil is beast. According to the Flax Council of Canada, there are numerous benefits of which omega-3 is at the top of the list. ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) constitutes 57% of the total fatty acids in flax, making flax the richest source of ALA in the North American diet. Every tablespoon of flaxseed oil contains 8 grams of ALA, and this is a polyunsaturated fatty acid.
Another benefit exists as there is a high content of mucilage in flax and this is an effective natural laxative.
Flaxseed oil is beneficial in helping to reduce high cholesterol.
The risk of heart disease is lower in individuals who take flaxseed oil. Evidence indicates that those who eat a lot of ALA are less likely to suffer a fatal heart attack and it reduces high blood pressure.
