So can you just add a cup of tea to your daily intake and reap these incredible benefits? Not quite.
Harvard doctors recommend a minimum of 3 cups per day in order to experience health benefits. This advice is based on the fact that clinical studies concluded that a minimum to 300-500mg of catechins per day are necessary to see any results. That actually translates to 3-5 cups of tea per day.
Did you know that tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world? It’s true! In the Far East, people drink tea instead of water, routinely consuming 8-10 cups of tea each day.
