Boost your immune system
Strengthening your immune system is a lot easier than you think — and you can start with black tea. Scientists at Tufts University compared the ORAC capacity of tea with 22 vegetables. (ORAC refers to the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, a measurement of the total antioxidant power of foods and other chemical substances: The higher the ORAC score, the greater its antioxidant capacity.) Although there was variation among different teas, the highest scoring teas were green tea and black tea that was brewed for five minutes, and they outranked the top fruits and vegetables. Drink well-steeped black tea to get the maximum benefits for your health.
