Four Reasons To Let It Chill

ONE. TWO. THREE. FOUR

1. Hydrate – Surprise your liver and drink more tea

Our body uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate temperature and maintain other bodily functions. It is super vital to rehydrate throughout the day because our bodies lose water through breathing, sweating, and digestion.  We know that water is the most efficient way to keep our bodies hydrated; iced tea is a refreshing alternative to sipping your way through summer.  After all, the main ingredient is water! Being made primarily out of H20, a homemade iced tea allows your body to replenish its water source in no time whilst equally avoiding nasty chemical additives and an overload of sugar.

2. Load up on antioxidants – you gotta nourish to flourish

‘Real’ tea is abundant and overflowing with antioxidants that can help protect you from many different free radicals.  Antioxidants have also been said to slow the body’s aging process – what could be better than cold-brewing your way to healthier-looking skin!  Do your body a massive favour and look to add more tea into your repertoire.

3. Strengthen your immune system – Choose to be healthy

Since tea leaves are filled to the brim with antioxidants and nutrients, it is only natural that our immunity will also get a helping boost. Look to fuel your body the right way and help fight off pathogens and infections with natural, and healthy ingredients. A powerhouse ice-tea may be just what you are searching for as a healthy summer alternative that will leave you refreshed, hydrated and feeling supercharged.

4. Weight loss – health starts from the inside

It goes without saying an iced tea can be a refreshing way to rehydrate on a hot summer day, but if you are trying to lose weight, it is still possible with a delicious naturally flavoured cold brew. Firstly, look to swap out high-calorie, sugar-laden beverages with a homemade cold brew. Homemade iced tea is naturally low in calories and sugars (when unsweetened) – you can always sweeten your iced tea but look to healthy alternatives such as infusing with fruit or honey. Studies have also found that green tea may increase your energy expenditure; increasing the number of calories and fat you burn? Cold-brew a green tea with lemon and honey and sip pre and post a workout!
