I’m sure that many of us hear about how wonderful green tea is-but are you aware of the actual benefits? Green tea is something you just NEED to incorporate into your diet. Here’s why.
1. It helps you lose weight and burns fat.
Green tea has been proven to boost your metabolic rate. It’s recommended to drink at least 2 to 3 cups a day in order for the weight loss to be noticeably signifigant.
2. It reduces the risk of cancer.
Green tea is full of catechins which happen to be a natural antioxidant. It has been proven that antioxidants have a protective effect and can reduce your risk of cancers such as breast and prostate. A tip to keep in mind however, is that adding milk to your tea will reduce the value of the antioxidant properties.
3. It reduces your risk of heart disease.
This power drink has been found to widen your main arteries, reducing the risk of blood clots. By drinking the recommended amount of 2 to 3 cups of green tea a day, the blood flow throughout your body will improve.
4. It calms your body and actually battles depression.
Green tea is rich in an amino acid known as Theanine. Theanine is said to provide calming effects for the body while the caffeine found in this tea will boost your mood.
5. It improves the complexion of your skin.
With a high concentration of antioxidants, it will improve the complexion of your skin. The tea will, in fact, flush out any unwanted toxins, reduce the signs of aging and wrinkles (because who wants wrinkles) and will improve the elasticity of your skin.
