Are you willing to take a guess at what might be the most beneficial beverage available today? Beer might be a good guess, but you'd be wrong. It could be a sports drink if you just finished three sets of tennis. Perhaps it's just good old water, we all need that just to survive. In my case, there's a good chance that it's coffee because I almost live on the stuff. Do you think it's bourbon, milk, or turpentine?
According to a blog post at Yahoo! Food
, there's a growing consensus that green tea is the drink of choice for health conscious folks. I've known for quite some time that green tea offers health benefits but I didn't know the full magnitude of the benefits green tea lays claim to. Here is a glimpse at how you might employ green tea to improve your healthy living program:
- Block the onset of cancer with green tea's beneficial antioxidants known as polyphenols.
- Soothe irritated skin with green tea's natural antiseptic qualities.
- Help maintain healthy blood pressure
- Preserve your brain function
- Maintain your arteries and fight cholesterol
- Rev up your metabolism
has been receiving positive reviews for decades. From what I have read, the stuff deserves all the praise that it gets. Unlike many of the concoctions that you can buy today which contain massive doses of sweeteners and caffeine to give them a jolt and make them palatable, green tea has a nice subtle flavor all it's own which is delicious either hot or cold. Given all the benefits that green tea is claimed to offer, it just might be a beverage you'd like to try.
