FOUR ‘’POTIONS’’, GUARDIANS OF THE HEART
This will probably make you very happy, since I believe everybody loves their coffee especially in the morning. Coffee contains more antioxidants than cacao and tea. A moderate consumption of coffee reduces the risk of heart diseases and inflammatory processes in the body. A study shows that people who drink two cups of coffee a day have a reduced risk of a stroke. But if you drink more than 4 cups a day, it has the opposite effect and can cause insomnia, anxiety and increased heart rate.
Scientists proved that black tea decreases the risk of a stroke, helps with cholesterol, improves the function of blood vessels. You should drink the black tea warm and fresh without any added sugars. A few cups a day can reduce your risk of heart disease.
Same as black tea, the green tea is a guardian of your heart. Consuming green tea protects your arteries. The use of green tea is linked to your cholesterol levels and can reduce the risk of blood clogs.
Dehydration can incite a number of risk factors for a heart disease. When your body is dehydrated, your blood is thicker, which makes your heart waste more energy than needed to pump the blood. The recommended amount of water consumption a day is 8 glasses. If you are not a water drinker, you can try adding freshly squeezed lemon juice and mint leaves for added flavor and a better digestion.
