Tea Party Girl Loves Green Tea


Green Tea has many health benefits and is rightly now considered to be a  superfood. Many reports and research show that there are some incredible  properties contained in green tea, which can help to cure or prevent some  serious health conditions.

1. Green tea can help to stop the growth and spread of cells that cause  cancer. Research has also suggested that because Japan has a comparatively low  rate of cancer, it could be down to drinking tea.

2. Tea can be a weight loss aid as there are no calories in tea without milk.  When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, drinking tea can be a good way  to lose weight.

3. Tea can help to prevent diabetes, as it stops as much sugar being broken  don, and being absorbed into the blood stream. For those with diabetes, it can  also reduce the risk of cataracts.

4. Tea is very effective at thinning the blood, in fact, as effective as  aspirin. This means that it can be a good alternative to taking medication on a  daily basis in order to thin the blood.

5. Antioxidants contained in tea can help to prevent arthritis. The  antioxidants block the enzymes which attack and destroy the bones. For those  people who already have arthritis, drinking green tea can help to lessen the  effects, and make the condition less painful.

6. Tea is believed to have anti aging properties. The Japanese have one of  the longest life expectancies in the world, and this is partly attributed to  drinking green tea. In addition, there are many new anti-aging beauty products  that include tea extracts.

7. The growth of bad bacteria in the body can be slowed down by drinking this  tea. This helps to speed up the growth of good bacteria, and can even help  prevent viral strains of clostridia and E. coli.

8. Drinking tea helps to lower cholesterol, and can help to widen the  arteries reducing the risk of heart disease.

9. Drinking around 4 cups of tea a day can help slow down tooth decay as tea  contains fluoride which is important for the health of teeth.

10. Tea has around half the caffeine of coffee, which means that it can be  drunk all day long without the drinker experiencing the effects of drinking too  much coffee.

In order to get the health benefits of green tea, it needs to be made  properly. Steeping it for too long, or not long enough, or using water at the  wrong temperature can dramatically affect the taste of the tea. If you don’ like  the taste of the tea, then you’re less likely to drink it. Why not purchase some  green tea, and enjoy the taste and the amazing health benefits of green tea  today?
