According to healthline Tea's popularity as a drink dates back to the dawn of civilization. Recent studies have shown that tea has many benefits for the people who drink it (especially seniors). Consuming tea has been shown to protect the brain, reduce the risk of diabetes, reduce triglyceride and cholesterol levels, and improve cardiovascular health.
Traditional medical practices from many different cultures attest to tea's beneficial effects on health. Recent scientific research confirms this assumption. In addition, I have learned the specific benefits of drinking tea on a regular basis, especially as one matures.
Teas like these, says Medicalnewstoday, are essential to the health of the elderly.
1 - Black tea.
The antioxidant molecules found in large quantities in black tea, the most common variety of tea, can reduce the chance of developing some of the most serious diseases that are common in the elderly, such as stroke, cancer, and cardiovascular disease. Stroke risk can be reduced by 21% simply by drinking three to four cups of black tea everyday.
Researchers from the University of Singapore revealed that tea drinkers have a 50% lower risk of developing dementia compared to coffee consumers. Aging in place may present challenges for the elderly with dementia. Those diagnosed with dementia can maintain their independence for as long as possible with the help of trained dementia care professionals.
Second, a cup of green tea.
Similarly to black tea, green tea has a high antioxidant content and hence reduces the risk of developing cancer, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. Green tea may cut the risk of heart disease by as much as 10%, according to one study. Because old age is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, it is crucial to consider ways to lower your loved one's risk. By reducing LDL cholesterol, green tea can help prevent atherosclerosis. Green tea aids in the preservation of oral tissues and strengthens the immune system of the elderly.
A white tea is the third.
In addition to the health benefits already provided by black and green teas, white tea may also bring additional benefits, such as a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. White tea's lower caffeine concentration than other tea varieties may make it more appealing to seniors who need to reduce their caffeine intake. According to studies conducted by the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society, it also has anti-cancer properties.
