Some people think that traditional beverages such as tea are outdated. But in fact, many beverages can not be compared with tea, especially in summer, tea is more beneficial than ordinary drinks.

1. Tea is a natural beverage without additives.
No additives were added during the tea making process, and the formation of its color, aroma and flavor was only related to the quality of the raw materials and the production mechanism. Many other beverages, in order to improve their sensory properties and increase color and flavor, often need to add chemicals such as pigments, flavors, saccharin, etc., and sometimes add stimulants, anesthetics or preservatives according to the different effects of the beverage. There are more than 200 kinds of food additives currently used in China. Relevant experts suggest that you drink less beverages containing chemical additives and drink more natural beverages, and tea is an ideal natural beverage.

2. Drinking tea has the effect of cooling and promoting thirst.

In the summer, the cooling and thirst-preventing effects of tea drinking are far better than those of ordinary drinks. This is the result of the comprehensive effect of various active ingredients in tea. The caffeine in tea soup plays an important role in the regulation of the temperature center of the optic mound under the control of the human body. At the same time, the aromatic substances in tea are a kind of cooling agent. They can drive away certain heat from the human skin pores during the volatilization process. Drinking hot tea (not hot tea of course) has the best cooling effect in summer. The caffeine in tea also has a diuretic effect.

3. Drinking tea can prevent stomach and intestinal diseases
In the hot summer, if you do not pay attention to your diet, bacteria will multiply. Summer is the season when digestive tract diseases are frequent. Scientific research shows that tea has the functions of antibacterial, bactericidal, and improvement of intestinal microbial structure. Tea drinking can not only inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, but also promote the proliferation of beneficial bacteria and improve the immune capacity of the intestine.

4. Drinking tea can supplement potassium and water.
In summer, the temperature is high, and people sweat more. A large amount of potassium in the body will be lost with the discharge of sweat. Tea is a potassium-containing food. Scientific researchers determined the average leaching amount of potassium in black tea soup by atomic absorption spectrometry to be 24.1 mg per gram of tea soup and 10.7 mg to green tea. In summer, drinking tea can supply potassium, which helps to maintain normal osmotic pressure and acid-base balance inside and outside the cells of the human body, and maintains the normal physiological and metabolic activities of the human body. This is an important reason why you should drink tea in summer. Compared to eating certain potassium-containing fruits (such as citrus, pineapple, banana, etc.), drinking tea is both economical and convenient.
