Banish the 3 O’Clock Slump: Drink White Tea
You’ve had a hearty lunch, slipped back behind your desk and suddenly your neck seems unable to support your head. Sound familiar? Well, you no longer have to put up with the dreaded 3 O’Clock Slump. Just reach for some white tea to boost your energy and bring you back to life.
CNN reported on several ways to help boost your energy naturally and found white tea to be one of the best ways to bring you back to life. “Of all the teas, white tea goes through the least processing,” says Iman Hakim, M.D., Ph.D., a professor at the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona in Tucson and a leading researcher on the benefits of tea. White tea therefore has the highest concentration of Theanine, a rare non-protein amino acid that is found naturally in tea. Tea drinkers have always known that there cup of tea had special properties. Now research on Theanine is starting to show that it can stimulate alpha brain waves to boost alertness while producing a calming effect. And the low levels of caffeine helps to keep you hydrated (which also helps boost energy).
