Glorious Green Tea!
20 March, 2020
Green tea is said to be one of the worlds healthiest beverages, and its consumption dates back to around 2737 B.C and is still consumed globally to this day (now that’s one popular drink!) Studies suggest that this glorious green tea can help with weight loss. So instead of buying yourself an energy drink before hitting the gym, take a sip on the green stuff. Some studies suggest that this elixir has fat burning properties. Ready for the techy research? It’s believed that polyphenolic compounds called ‘catechins’ produced in the brew stimulate fat oxidation and energy expenditure. This plus adding in exercise produces best results.
Green tea is also said to boost brain function (and hey, we all need a little brain boost in this busy world right?). Research suggests that green tea can help with our brains cognitive functions and help assist working memory with some suggestions that it may reduce the risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s. Feel like a pick me up? Pop the kettle on and make yourself this brilliant brew because green tea contains caffeine. Woo hoo! Why not leave the latte and have a cuppa instead? It tastes divine, you can get various blissful blends and if you’re anything like us and need warming up then this mood boosting beverage will be your new bff.
Green Tea is loaded with antioxidants – hello glowing complexion! It is now in fact a popular ingredient in beauty products for this very reason. The antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties can help with treating oily skin and acne and reduce sebum secretion also. Green tea can provide awesome health benefits and tastes great too! Pop on over to Tea Journal and try some of their heavenly green tea blends.
