Thinking about drink choices that are healthier? Oolong tea should be high on your list. Here are 5 benefits of drinking oolong tea.
One study found that oolong tea may help prevent ovarian cancer from occurring. It is said to have natural antioxidant properties that specifically target this type of cancer.
Weight Loss Aid
Many swear by oolong tea’s ability to aid in weight loss. According to scientific studies, it can increase metabolism, burn fat, and block dietary fat absorption.
Drinking oolong tea is said to aid in mental alertness. This is likely due to the natural caffeine content.
Helps Prevent Tooth Decay
Oolong tea may help reduce the enzyme activities of streptococci bacteria. This bacteria has been known to cause formation of dental plaque, which can result in dental caries. Of the teas examined in a 1993 study, oolong was proven to have the most benefits.
Helps Ease High Blood Pressure & Certain Heart Conditions
One study claims that oolong tea can help reduce the blood concentration of triglycerides. These are the most common fats found in the body. It has also been found to reduce the body’s cholesterol level after just one month of regular drinking.

Your brain is an amazing thing. It controls your entire body. That said, we need to be sure we are taking proper care of our brains. The best way to do that is to eat food that enrich the brain's functions. Both kids and adults should eat to feed the brain. The 4 groups of foods that do this are fatty acids, amino acids, glucose, and micronutrients.
(foods and supplements containing Omega-3 and Omega-6)
Amino Acids (Proteins)
How to Manage
From the lists above, we can gather that the best brain foods are fruits and vegetables, fish, dairy, whole grains, and meat and legumes (in moderation). If your kids are a bit picky, try making kid-friendly combinations of the correct nutrients. You also may want to try slight variations to any of the meal suggestions to fit your child's taste. Just refrain from adding those nasty refined sugars. Sure they may taste good, but numerous studies have shown that sugar can be hazardous to the brain.
