Get your antioxidants the cool way this summer…in iced tea

Provided By:

(NC)-A growing number of health-conscious Canadians are looking for beverage options that fit within their healthy lifestyle but don't skimp on taste. Many of these trendsetters are rediscovering an age-old favourite - tea, in all its goodness.

Most people are aware that a hot cup of tea contains antioxidants, but not everyone realizes that iced tea - when brewed from real tea leaves - also contains natural antioxidants called flavonoids.

Why all the fuss about antioxidants?

Increasing scientific research has shown that antioxidants in tea, fruits and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet. Antioxidants protect the body from damage by 'free radicals'. These free radicals attack cells in the body, and may damage DNA, proteins and lipids. Antioxidants seek out and neutralize free radicals, helping the body maintain a healthy balance.

"The scientific evidence continues to mount about the numerous health benefits of drinking tea. Many scientific research studies have found many potential health attributes associated with tea," said Helene Charlebois, a registered dietitian and nutritionist. "Because of its antioxidant properties, research has found that drinking black, green or oolong tea may help to protect against cardiovascular disease, certain types of cancer and help strengthen the immune system."

Just how much antioxidants can you get from iced tea? It varies from brand to brand, but Lipton White Tea with Raspberry, for example, provides 106mg of flavonoid antioxidants per 355-ml serving. One of the advantages of consuming iced tea with antioxidants is that you know with precision and consistency the exact level of antioxidants you are consuming, whereas with hot brewed tea, the antioxidant level can vary significantly from cup to cup, depending on a variety of factors such as how long the tea is brewed.
