Health Benefits of Orange Spice Tea
Rich in Antioxidants
Both black tea and cinnamon are high in antioxidants, including polyphenols. Polyphenols help remove free radicals in the body and decrease levels of cell damage. They also reduce a person’s risk of developing chronic disease.
Reduce Bad Cholesterol
Excess low-density cholesterol levels in the body can lead to health problems like heart failure and stroke. Drinking black tea every day can help reduce low-density cholesterol in people with elevated cholesterol levels.
Increased Insulin Sensitivity
Insulin is a key factor in how the body regulates its metabolism and rations out its own energy stores. Cinnamon has been shown to greatly increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin, which helps insulin work more effectively. This can help reduce blood sugar levels. In turn, this can help reduce the risk of developing diabetes.
Potential Gut Health Benefits
Recent science indicates that the bacteria in your gut can play a significant role in your overall health. A healthy gut flora can help reduce your risk of developing conditions like inflammatory bowel disease, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and cancer. What you eat and drink impacts your gut health. The polyphenols in black tea can help you maintain a healthy gut by inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria and helping beneficial bacteria flourish.
Decreased Blood Sugar
In addition to improving insulin resistance, cinnamon can help lower blood sugar. It accomplishes this by decreasing the amount of glucose that can enter your bloodstream after a meal. By interfering with digestive enzymes, it slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in your digestive system.
