The Natural Wonders of Green Tea

Updated: Mar 12, 2021

Green tea

Green tea is one of the most popular drinks in the world, but even people who swear by

it are often surprised by just how many health benefits that they're getting from their

morning cuppa. Here are four reasons to reach for green tea the next time that you're

feeling thirsty!

1. It helps you burn fat and lose weight

Pick up any bottle of weight loss pills. There's a good chance that green tea will be one

of its active ingredients. Not only does it boost the metabolism and help you burn

calories at a quicker rate, but since a big glass of tea will fill your stomach, it'll keep you

from being hungry, too. The next time you are struggling to lose weight, skip the fad or

crash diet, and instead make yourself a healthy cup of green tea. You can also increase

the health of the tea with adding honey.

2. It's good for your heart

Multiple studies have shown that flavonoids are good for cardiovascular health. Can you

guess what's in green tea? Whether you're hoping to reduce inflammation in your

arteries or decrease your risk of a heart attack, green tea can help. Try pairing it with

other heart-healthy foods and exercises. This won’t replace cardiovascular health

treatments, but it can definitely reduce your risk for heart complications when you drink

it on a regular basis..

3. It can boost your immune system

Green tea is full of catechins, and catechins are little cold-busters that like to kill bacteria

and attack viruses. While it probably won't stop you from getting a really stubborn strain

of the flu, it might help to relieve your symptoms from the inside out. The warmth and

steam of the cup can also unblock your sinuses. Who doesn’t need a nice natural

immune system boost?

4. It helps you retain memories

A study of Alzheimer's patients has suggested that green tea might reduce the

breakdown of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine helps you retain memories, so when it starts

eroding, that's when memories fade away. While nothing can stop cognitive diseases

like Alzheimer's, green tea might just slow it down a little. Your brain health needs your

help, and when you can use natural remedies like healing tea, it doesn’t get much better

than that.

These are just a few ways that green tea can be a benefit to your diet. Have fun brewing

your next pot!
