Good Morning! Let's jumpstart our health and wellness today. Although it's the middle of the week, it's never too late to start. Did you know drinking Green Tea can help you lose weight? Did you also know that it can make you look younger? Read below for more benefits of drinking Green Tea:
Enjoy the benefits of losing weight while drinking tea! Green tea contains lots of antioxidants and flavonoids that elevate your metabolic rate and help you burn fat faster. Keep in mind that you must drink it hot, or you won't be able to get all of the benefits.
Drinking Green Tea will make you look younger. The antioxidants in the green tea aid in reducing inflammation in the skin, allowing it to glow and radiate. Try applying the green tea bag itself to areas of concern for maximum benefit!
Green Tea helps prevent Parkinson's and Alzheimers disease. According to a 2012 study called the Journal of Phytotherapy and Phytopharacology, polyphenols in green tea fight free radicals that help develop these diseases. A study published in the Natural Medicine Journal found that when participants took a 360 mg tablet of green tea extract along with 60-mg of I-theanine (an amino acid also found in tea), they found themselves having better attention spans and memory.
Green Tea is also known to fight cancer. This is why antioxidants are good for us! Other healthy foods have these, but we tend to not eat them. At least with Green Tea it is much easier to ingest than to eat some leaves.
Drinking Green Tea can help prevent a heart attack. Lots of population-based studies found that the risk of a heart attack was lowered by 11%. According to an analysis by the University of Maryland Medical Center, scientists believe that green tea can prevent coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis, which is a build up of fatty material on the inner walls of the arteries. Although lots of research has been done, the FDA does not find the evidence strong enough for companies who sell green tea to list it as an official benefit.
Have a cup this morning and bring a great start to your day.
