Teas have been used for thousands of years by other cultures to improve and maintain good health. While many Americans drink tea mainly for a caffeine boost, there are actually several health benefits to drinking tea, including weight loss, regulation of blood sugar, and more.

Check out these five major health benefits of drinking tea.

1. Tea increases your metabolism

White, black, and green teas — which all hail from the Camellia sinensis plant — contain both caffeine and an antioxidant known as EGCG. EGCG naturally increases your resting metabolic rate, which leads to faster metabolism and the burning of more calories.

2. Tea improves digestion

All teas have the ability to break down dietary fats, reduce bloating, and normalize bowel movements — leading to better digestion. Drink tea following meals to stimulate bowel movements and speed up the digestion process.
