Powerful Antioxidant

This is perhaps the most touted benefit of green tea. In this case, the secret is in its catechin content. Catechin is definitely one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet because it helps to fight the free radicals that our bodies are exposed to on a daily basis. In fact, Harvard researchers have found a link between drinking green tea and a reduced risk of cancer.

Tip: Take green tea daily together with Vitamin C & E supplements to get a powerful dose of disease preventing antioxidants.

Speed Up Metabolism

Looking to shed a few pounds? It’s time to add green tea into your diet! Research has proven that it increases fat oxidation in the body as well as boosts metabolic rate.

Tip: Drink a hot cup of green tea with a squeeze of lemon the first thing you wake up every morning. In brief, this will help you to kick start your metabolism and give you energy to get the day started!

Lowers Cholesterol

As found by a 2011 research study for the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the powerful antioxidant compound EGCG in green tea helps to inhibit the absorption of cholesterol from the large intestine. Results from this study suggest that regular green tea consumption will reduce serum cholesterol levels by as much as 7.2mg/dL.

Tip: Generally, experts recommend drinking up to 5 cups of green tea a day to lower blood cholesterol levels.
