Green Tea

For generations, people have been making green tea and enjoying its wholesome taste. However, most are unaware of the many benefits green tea actually has to your health. Green tea contains powerful antioxidants that can lower cholesterol, burn fat, help in the prevention of cancer, the prevention of diabetes, and the prevention of dementia. The antioxidants this drink contains are shown to fight off particles that may be involved in the development of cancer, diabetes, and dementia. Many of the diseases that green tea fights or helps in the prevention of, are actually growing concerns in the U.S. With this being said, partaking in drinking green tea can benefit your body more than any other drink. While water keeps you hydrated, green tea contains all the antioxidants that water doesn’t. This generation currently runs on soft drinks and the cheap, processed food that is sold by local fast food chains. Because everything is so on-the-go, the quicker option is to grab a soda or an energy drink. But no one ever considers the long term effects simple decisions will have on them. If you swtiched at least one soda per day with a cup of green tea, your body would be much better off than on a constant diet of soda and energy drinks. It’s the little decisions you make towards your body that can either benefit you or hurt you in th elong run. It’s always your choice as to what goes into your body! Below are some links with furhter explanation on the benefits of green tea:
