It Helps Your Teeth
Tea has a natural high level of catechin -- an antioxidant known to fight oral infections. Also, Earl Grey has fluoride, which helps protect your teeth from cavities and decay.
It Promotes Healthy Digestion
Like most teas, Earl Grey can help promote a healthier digestive system. It helps relive nausea, indigestion and even colic. It can also be used to treat worms and help prevent constipation.
Anxiety and Depression No More
Bergamot in Earl Grey naturally calms the body and can even boost a person’s mood. It has natural aromatherapy qualities and is a good, natural solution for those who suffer from depression or anxiety. However, it should not be used to replace depression or anxiety medications.
Boosts Your Energy
If you notice you’re sluggish in the morning, forgo the coffee and start drinking Earl Grey in the morning instead. Earl Grey gives a boost of caffeine, just like coffee, but it doesn’t have the same crashing effect in the afternoon that coffee is known for.
It May Prevent Cancer
Some experts suggest that the high quantities of antioxidants in Earl Grey tea may help prevent cancer. Because antioxidants combat free radicals that cause disease (like cancer), drinking Earl Grey could reduce your risk in the future. Also, the extra dose of antioxidants will help give your skin a clearer, more youthful appearance.
Lose More Weight
One of the more popular health benefits to Earl Grey is weight loss. Because it has citrus extract, it may help break down calories faster and increase your metabolism. But, don’t add cream and sugar to your Earl Grey -- you won’t get the same weight loss effects as if you drink it with a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Prevents Heart Disease
Drinking three cups of steaming Earl Grey per day could actually lower your risk for heart disease in the future. A study published in Preventative Medicine in 2012 found that people who had three cups of a black tea variety (Earl Grey included) reduced their blood triglycerides and increased the good cholesterol in just three short months.
If you’re suffering from the common cold, drink some Earl Grey. The bergamot in Earl Grey helps improve your immunity and may even cure fevers. In fact, many cultures use Earl Grey as a natural cold remedy.
