Green Tea: Inside and Out
Green tea is a super drink that been used for thousands of years in the Far East.
Legend has it that green tea was discovered by a Chinese Emperor when fresh leaves fell off a tea plant into a pot of boiling water. Despite being from the same species of tea plant as other teas, green tea is barely oxidized since it is produced by steaming freshly picked leaves, making it a powerful antioxidant.
With over 450 organic components, the health benefits of consuming green tea are well documented and it has been a staple in Chinese medicine for centuries. Green tea contains micro nutrients – polyphenols – that neutralize the components that cause damage to the body. Being rich in antioxidants, green tea also promotes a healthy cardiovascular system and good digestive health. The flavonoids in green tea also help reduce stress and anxiety. It also works to keep blood sugar levels in check, improves cholesterol levels, and protects against nerve cell damage resulting in better brain health. Green tea is one of the simplest to incorporate into your daily routine and yet its benefits are far reaching.
