The Many Benefits Of Drinking Green Tea

But you could also sip down 2-3 cups of green tea per day! According to one study, green tea helped some adults burn up to 183 calories more per day, leading to weight loss.
It’s Stuffed With Antioxidants Green Tea contains a lot of antioxidants thanks to the plant it comes from – Camellia Sinensis. Although black tea is also made from the same plant, green tea is less processed and so keeps a lot more of its antioxidants, in particular catechins, which can prevent diseases like cancer and slow down signs of aging.
It (Gently) pumps you up! Although green tea contains caffeine, when brewed properly for 2-3 minutes, it contains far less than coffee. So it will give you a boost without wreaking havoc on muscles or nerves the way coffee can.
It Fights & Prevents Disease Green tea has been shown to lower the risk of breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer, and even help prevent and heal Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Manage Cholesterol & Diabetes Green tea has been shown to help people manage blood sugar levels by regulating glucose. This can not only keep blood sugar from spiking after you eat but can help your body pump less insulin and store less fat. It’s also been shown to reduce the levels of the “bad” LDL cholesterol in the blood, and increase the levels of good cholesterol.
It’s The Fountain of Youth! As shown in the infographic above from Visual.ly, a study of 40,530 Japanese adults was conducted. These adults all drank over 5 cups of green tea per day and the results were astounding! It showed that they were significantly less likely to die during an 11-year period from health-related causes. The most impressive results were in women, who were shown to have a 31% less chance of death from heart disease, a 42% lower chance from stroke, and a 23% lower chance from all causes. For men, the results were impressive as well at 22%, 35%, and 12% respectively.
