After water and coffee, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world. This is because it is a cultural element of several countries and it is also a natural and healthy product that brings numerous benefits to human health.

According to plastic surgeon Paulo Henrique Laia, teas play important roles in people’s bodies, since herbs have excellent therapeutic properties for health. “They can have calming, stimulant, diuretic or expectorant properties, for example,” says the doctor on his Instagram account .

Therefore, before using the teas, it is necessary to make sure of their benefits. In this way, it is possible to choose the most appropriate for each health problem.

The benefits of teas

“Tea, without sugar, has no calories and is a good way to increase water intake, especially in winter, when we tend to consume less water. In addition, most tea is rich in minerals and natural antioxidants”, explains Paulo Henrique Laia.

Taking these benefits into account, the doctor recommends the consumption of teas in a controlled manner. If possible, the patient should seek medical attention before taking any medicine, whether natural or not.
