Why Drink Decaf?
Even Lipton Decaffeinated Tea Bags began their lives as leaves containing naturally occurring caffeine. Caffeinated teas often make it difficult to enjoy your favorite cup before bed or if you have a sensitivity to caffeine. This is where decaf tea saves the day. What most people don't know is what decaffeinated tea means when it comes to health benefits. Generally made from flowers, leaves and roots of plants, decaf tea lets you drink your favorite beverage without worrying about feeling wired. The process of decaffeination removes not only caffeine but also polyphenols and some antioxidants, meaning decaf may not be as potent on the health spectrum as regular tea. That doesn't mean that decaf tea is a waste of time or that it doesn't offer any health benefits at all. Antioxidants are still found in large amounts, even after the decaffeination process.
What Are Antioxidants and Polyphenols?
Antioxidants are chemicals in the body that help stop or limit the damage caused by free radicals by neutralizing them on an atomic level. This keeps them from causing damage further damage to other cells. Antioxidants can protect and reverse some of the damage from free radicals while also boosting your immunity. Polyphenols are a category of chemicals, collectively known as phytochemicals, that occur naturally in plants and include flavonoids, phenolic acids, stilbenes and lignans. Found in coffee, tea and red wine, as well as a long list of fruits, vegetables, grains, fats, spices, nuts and legumes, polyphenols are simply another type of antioxidant.
