"Triple combo" makes tea WAY healthier | Sugar makes you OLDER

As you know, I'm constantly reading and researching nutrition and try to pass on as many useful tidbits as I can to you... here are just a few helpful tips summarized from some of my readings recently:

Tidbit #1:  The "triple combo" tip to make your tea SUPER healthy...

You probably already know about some of the powerful health-protecting antioxidants that are found in green tea, white tea, oolong tea, and even traditional black tea.

But researchers in Portugal found that when both lemon and honey are added to teas it amplifies the antioxidant content of the teas in addition to adding their own unique antioxidants.  With this combination of all 3 antioxidant sources in one drink, you end up with an "antioxidant trifecta" that is even MORE powerful and synergistic for your health and disease prevention than just drinking tea alone.

Having several cups of varying types of teas per day (green, black, oolong, white, rooibos, etc) along with lemon and a little honey to amplify and produce a synergistic antioxidant effect in your body is proving to be powerful against chronic inflammation in your body and helping to prevent heart disease, cancer, and other terrible degenerative diseases that I'm sure you want to avoid.

Drink up!

Beware:  Many people use TOO MUCH honey in their tea by using a full tablespoon.  This is 16 grams of sugar and is way too much for one cup of tea which can add too much calories and blood sugar response.  I like to only use 1 teaspoon of honey in a full mug of tea, which only contains a mere 5 grams of sugar and 20 calories as opposed to the 16 grams of sugar and 65 calories in a Tablespoon of honey.

If you're not currently doing so, start protecting your body and make sure you're eating on a weekly basis all of my 101 superfoods that FIGHT the aging process in your body and can prevent diabetes, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and more!


Tidbit #2:  Sugar can make you look OLDER

If you've followed a lot of my articles, you know how evil sugar can be for your body... sugar has addictive properties, feeds tumors, causes diabetes, makes you fat, and even ages you faster.

A study summarized in the Journal of the American Aging Association showed that for every 0.18 gram increase in the subjects blood sugar level per liter of blood, this was associated with a 5 month increase in perceived age by a panel of independent assessors. 

For example, this means that a person with an average blood sugar level 1.8 grams per liter of blood higher than someone else ended up appearing over FOUR years older (50 months) than someone that had the lower blood sugar level on average.

The lesson here is what I've been talking about for years now... focus on keeping your blood sugar levels lower and controlled without large spikes.  This means focusing your meals on healthy fats, proteins, and fiber-rich veggies instead of the typical American meals that are loaded with starchy grains at almost every meal.  Eliminate grains and excess sugars and you'll control your blood sugar levels consistently, appear younger and age SLOWER!

Remember that there is a specific type of "complex carb" that's actually been proven to have even more significant blood sugar effects than table sugar.  This article shows you the type of carb that's even WORSE for blood sugar than pure table sugar.
