Benefits of Green Tea
Hundreds of millions of people throughout the world drink green and black teas, both made from the leaves of Camellia sinensis, making tea the second most consumed beverage in the world, with water being the first. While the use of green tea dates back more than 4,000 years, it is far more than just a tasty beverage.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) uses green tea for everything, from preserving youthful skin to brightening the eyes. Modern research has found a plethora of discoveries. Green tea contains polyphenols, naturally occurring antioxidants in its leaves, which can help maintain the overall well-being of the body. Additionally, because green tea contains a little caffeine, it can also help stimulate you without leaving you with jangly coffee nerves.
In Asian countries, people drink about three cups of Green tea per day, and most of the modern recommendations are based on that daily amount. An equivalent quantity would be a good target for those wishing to reap the benefits of green tea.
