Healthy Secret of Green Tea Exposed!Green Tea has been used by the Chinese for more than 1,000 years.
There was something magical what this green tea can do. It is rumored to help reduce cancer, ease congestion, treat arthritis, help lower cholesterol level, and most of all, it reduce stress. The National Cancer Institute published a journal in 1994 indicating that green tea help reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in men and women by 60%.
What makes this green tea so special from other tea flavors? The answer lies in how this tea was processed. Green tea was given a shorter process; its green tea leaves was steamed and dried to keep the beneficial chemical intact. It contains a rich catechin polyphenols and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) or in another word, it’s a powerful anti-oxidant which targets the growth of cancer cells.
If you don't like drinking coffee and need energy stimulant, green tea has caffeine but in lesser concentration than coffee alone. January is known as "Hot Tea month," so go to your local cafe with a friend and stay warm by drinking hot green tea.
