green tea lifestyle

1) Heart Benefits

According to a study done in the Journal of the American Medical Association, green tea helped reduce heart disease.

The participants drank at least 5 cups of green tea per day.

How is this possible?

Green tea contains “catechins, polyphenolic compounds” that help protect people against heart disease.

2) Alzheimer’s

Consistent tea drinkers – you’re in luck!

A study out of the National University of Singapore found that “people who regularly drank tea reduced their risk of neurocognitive disorders by 50 percent.”

In addition to that, “The group reduced their risk of cognitive impairment by as much as 86 percent.”

The best part is, it didn’t matter what kind of green tea they drank. As long as it’s brewed from tea leaves and was drank on a regular basis, it’s perfect!

3) Diabetics

Studies have been down to show that green tea can help normalise blood sugar levels.

Due to its anti-inflammatory contents, researchers found that “green tea’s catechins, especially EGCG, appear to have anti-obesity and antidiabetic effects.”

4) Improve Your Physicality

Have you ever looked at the ingredients of fat-burning supplements? Chances are they contain green tea. Not only is this the tea that gives you energy, but research found that it “increases fat burning and boosts your metabolic rate.”

However, green tea is not going to have this effect on everyone, so don’t get discouraged. Everyone’s metabolism is different.

5) Nutrients

If you’re worried about calories, don’t. Unsweetened brewed green tea has ZERO!

Green tea is one of the healthiest drinks. Not only does it contain a small amount of caffeine, but also added antioxidants.

  • Bottled and sweetened
