Black Tea

Black tea is the same as green tea except that the black tea has been allowed to oxidize. This oxidation does cause it to have different effects as a supplement.  This is the common tea that in Texas we use as ice tea, but it is also commonly used for a hot tea.

A. Black tea for energy and alertness



Black tea is well attested to as a supplement for alertness and energy. This attestation has been validated by scientific research. It works in this regard  because it contains a large supply caffeine.  Depending on conditions it may even have more caffeine than coffee.


This tea also has theophylline, which does some stimulating also.  In combination of caffeine and theophylline black tea can increase up your heartbeat and also affect more alertness.

B. Black tea as an Antioxidant



Now we are talking polyphenols.  Black tea is stuffed full of these healthy elements. These substances, antioxidants, are  good for protecting your cells, especially your DNA from damage.  


Scientific researchers think that the kind antioxidants we see in black tea, which includes polyphenols and catechins, can aid in preventing some types of cancer. Consider this; the research points us to the conclusion that women who regularly drink black tea manifest a sharply lower risk of ovarian cancer compared to women who do not.  

This may not apply to other cancers risk, but that is just to say that that research has has not been done or I have not noticed it yet in my searchings.

About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student.

Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits.

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.

Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality.

Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you
