Here’s a pleasant little pastime that takes about 5 minutes to do each day but could make you up to 5 years younger if you’re faithful to it: drinking tea.
wow!! again wow! i dont know about you…BUT IM DRINKING TEA DAILY FROM NOW ON!
In a Chinese study, the cells of enthusiastic tea drinkers showed about 5 fewer years’ worth of wear and tear compared with the cells of people who drank little tea.
Age Marker The enthusiastic tea drinkers averaged 3 or more cups of green or oolong tea daily, while the group that showed more signs of cell aging averaged less than a cup. The researchers looked specifically at the study participants’ telomeres to see how much their cells had aged. Telomeres are the protective end caps on your DNA strands. They get shorter every time cells divide, so the shorter these caps are, the older your cells are, too. And in the study, the most avid tea drinkers had significantly longer telomeres than the people who drank less than a cup a day.
