Have Some Tea and a Smile!

It is very easy to smile when you are drinking a chocolate mint black tea from a whimsical mug!

Even more to smile about when you consider research from the University of Illinois at Chicago states that polyphenols in tea reduce levels of cavity causing acids and prevent plaque from sticking to your teeth and gums. Polyphenols are what's known as *super antioxidants*. Some other benefits of those beautiful tea polyphenols include protection against cancer and heart disease. John H. Weisburger, PhD, of the American Health Foundation has said that five cups of tea has the antioxidant equivalence of two servings of vegetables.

As a vegan, of course, I don't recommend replacing your veggies with tea, but instead having both! Talk about awesome!
