Memories of bleak winter nights spent in front of a heater or open fire generally involve a steaming hot cup of a flavoured beverage such as a nice cup of tea. In our killer summers, however, a hot toddy is a thought far from our minds, but sometimes, despite the heat, the longing for a cup of tea still lingers. Lipton Ice Tea Qld makes this favourite drink available in a format just perfect for a hot day. What better solution than to have the flavour and benefits of tea served in a tall glass over ice cubes? If you have tasted Lipton Ice Tea you already know about the delicious flavour, but just what are the benefits? Antioxidant - The health industry tells us that we all have "free radicals" occurring naturally in our bodies but unfortunately, "free" in this case, isn't necessarily a good thing. Free radicals can, for a variety of reasons, cause damage to our cells. Our bodies have a defense mechanism in antioxidants which are present in a healthy, balanced diet. Recent research suggests that flavonoid antioxidants may provide the following benefits: > anti-viral > anti-allergic > anti-inflammatory > anti-tumour These flavonoids are present in a range of fruit and vegetables, but are also present in significant quantities in tea, including Lipton Ice Tea Brisbane. Hydration - Most of us know that a healthy adult needs to drink 6-8 glasses of fluid a day, and usually water is the recommended fluid. However, recent studies have shed new light on this, and we now know that 2 or 3 cups of unsweetened tea, green or black, can make up your total daily fluid intake. Water is needed to remove toxins from the body, but some people find it difficult to drink it in sufficient quantities. Drinking unsweetened Lipton Ice Tea Qld introduces variety while still providing the purifying effect of the water. It was thought that drinking tea or other drinks containing caffeine acted as a diuretic which would dehydrate the body, but current scientific thinking is that the small quantities of caffeine contained in 2 or 3 cups of tea daily would have no effect. It is quite reasonable to include Lipton Ice Tea Brisbane in the daily water intake. The final word on the subject, however, needs to include the qualifier that the tea must be unsweetened, and without milk. Adding either, or worse still, both of these - significantly reduces the benefits.
