According to many nutritionists, green tea is the best tea you could choose for better health and general well-being. In China, it has been used for over 5000 years. There is a well-known Chinese proverb that says “better go three days without food, then one day without tea”. There are many benefits that this tea has for your health.
You’ll feel more energetic
Green tea contains caffeine which gives a feeling of energy, which is much better than the one you get from drinking coffee or other drinks that have caffeine.
- You’ll feel more relaxed
The ingredient which can be found in this tea, which is called EGCG contributes for improving the feeling of calmness and lowering the levels of stress.
It improves your memory
Only 1-2 cups of tea will help improve the connection of the parts of the brain which are responsible for the memory. In the long run, regular consumption of green tea lowers the risk of memory loss and dementia.
Helps you lose weight
Only one cup of green tea per day will encourage the speeding up of the metabolism, which will contribute towards a fast loss of the excess weight.
Lower risk of cold and flu
Each cup of tea is rich in ingredients which contribute toward the strengthening of the immune system. For the best effect, add a bit of lemon which is a great addition of Vitamin C to green tea.
