Besides moistening and quenching thirst, it also has many other health benefits.
Additionally, these teas are safe for the elderly as well.
1. Black tea is rich in flavonoids and potassium, which have antioxidative properties and mild properties and do not stimulate gastric mucosa.
Additionally, these tea polyphenols can also promote gastrointestinal digestion, which is very beneficial for the elderly with poor digestion!
2. Old white tea is also suitable for the elderly to drink. White tea is rich in tea polyphenols, caffeine, lipopolysaccharide, theanine, etc., which have a lot of drinking value, so we can let the elderly at home drink more tea, and we can nourish our hearts at the same time!
3. It is also recommended for the elderly to drink oolong tea, Pu’er ripe tea, and other warm and moist teas to keep them warm as well as to improve their health.
Tea drinkers should note the following
For many elderly people, drinking hot tea and reading the newspaper is a convenient way to live in their old age.
For the elderly, however, it is better to adhere to the principle of “light is better, moderate is better, drink less after meals, don’t drink before bedtime, i.e., drink immediately after bathing, and don’t drink when taking medicines”.
