green tea

Research shows that drinking green tea can have a positive effect on our body weight as well as our general health. Green tea also contains less caffeine than coffee, which is better for the health of our over-stressed nervous system.

The bitter green stuff increases our metabolism (aka burn more calories/ kilojoules throughout the day), increases our body's ability to burn fat and drinking a cup of tea often suppresses our appetite a little.

Some other health benefits:

  • Natural antioxidant
  • Inhibits the growth of cancer cells
  • Lowers the total cholesterol levels
  • Improve the ratio of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol
  • Helps reduce the risk and treat rheumatoid arthritis
  • Reduces the risk of  experiencing cardiovascular disease
  • Treat impaired immune function
  • Help prevent tooth decay
  • Prevent food poisoning

Now you may be asking how much do I need to drink? Well, you can never have too much of this superfood drink, in fact, researchers recommend drinking between 5-10 cups per day to get the full benefits of drinking green tea. 

Big love.

    I am not a tea person, never. Always a hot choc every morning. I gave it a try 1 day ( last month) and ever since I had almost ditch my hot choc, have it once a week or rarely now. But I have been having Green tea without sugar ( I have a sweet tooth) every day, 3 – 4 times a day. Makes me feel clean and calm.
    Suppresses my appetite a bit is a bonus too. Had lost 2 kgs with light to moderate exercise in a month. Yeah to Green Tea!!!!

    I love green tea! However sometimes it gets confusing finding an authentic brand, do you have a particular brand that you like? Also nutritionally what are the benefits of loose leaf vs matcha powder?
