2. Tea is especially bneficial for menopausal women as it heps in combating osteoporosis. The flavonoids, flourine and caffeine in tea help in increasing the body’s bone mineral density.
3. Tea has various other benefits like fighting cancer, preventing tooth decay, regulate mood and improve brain function etc.
4. Iced tea gives you all the benfits without the harmful effects of colas and other sodas. You can easily brew your iced tea without sugar to cut calories, and still enjoy your long glass of icy cold iced tea!
