The health benefits of green tea seem to be countless. Studies are showing that this miracle drink has more life-giving properties than we even first imagined.
Green tea has been a beverage of choice in China and Japan for over 4000 years, and interestingly, these are two of the healthiest countries in the world. It has only become popular in the United States and Britain in the last year or so thanks to the recent health phenomenon led by TV shows like Gillian McKeith's You Are What You Eat and Jamie Oliver's campaign for more nutritious food in schools for our children.
Green tea is full of antioxidants, which fight off disease-causing free radicals in our body, and as a result can help to help you work with conditions like high cholesterol and high blood pressure. It can also help ward off signs of ageing such as wrinkles. Normal tea also has some antioxidants, but green tea has significantly more and thus is far more beneficial to your health. It is thought that when we put milk into tea it destroys the antioxidants, but because you don't drink green tea with milk this cannot happen.
For anyone watching their weight, green tea is a Godsend as not only does it have NO calories (as it is not prepared with milk or sugar), it also speeds up the metabolism by 4 per cent every time you drink a cup, and can help to combat cellulite. It is low in caffeine so you could try having it instead of your morning cup of coffee or regular tea. It's recommended that you drink up to 4 cups a day.
