You’ve been falling sick regularly, from short bouts of cold and cough to the more persistent fever, digestive problems and a general air of weakness. You’re not sure what you’re doing wrong – you’ve been healthy, exercising regularly and eating nutritious food. So what do you do in such cases?
Many people believe that organic supplements are a healthier and more practical means of achieving overall good health without any side-effects. And thousands of people have found them to be beneficial to their body. Ancient civilisations like the Chinese and Indians have been great proponents of this theory as well.
Let us see a few organic supplements and discuss the benefits they bring to the human body.
In Eastern cultures, tea has long been regarded as a key to good health, happiness and wisdom. Between India and China itself, there are thousands of varieties of tea, each having their own health benefits. In general, tea is known to help with cancer, heart disease, diabetes. It also encourages weight loss, lowers cholesterol, and brings about mental alertness. Green tea has a high concentration of EGCG and antioxidants that effectively treat problems of the bladder, breast, lung, stomach and pancreas. It prevents clogging of the arteries, burns fat and reduces the risk of neurological disorders like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. With all these health benefits, is it any wonder that tea is the favoured choice of beverage for millions around the globe?

One or two teaspoons of honey may be added to the milk for sweetening.
