Green Tea

green tea benefitsGreen Tea is the king when it comes to antioxidants, not to mention a slew of other nutrients and benefits. One of the most recent studies shows how effective Green Tea is at fighting heart disease. One study found that consuming green tea was linked to reductions in "bad" cholesterol. Other research claims that green tea consumption is associated with reducing the risks of developing a cardiovascular disease. Green tea contains catechins, which are polyphenolic compounds that provide numerous benefits to the cardiovascular system. Green tea may also help with weight loss for adults. This is because Green Tea helps fight other factors that contribute to weight gain, such as stress and fatigue. Green Tea has also shown to help inflammatory skin conditions by reducing overproduction of skin cells and regulating their production in the body. You can find Green Tea in bottles at the store, in single tea bags, loose-leaf, and in instant powder. However, some studies have shown that bottled Green Tea may not be the same as steeped, since the bottles seem to significantly contain less amounts of polyphenols than a freshly steeped cup of Green Tea.
