20 Reasons Why Green Tea is Fabulous

21May10

 

It isn't really a green color, but it is tea.

As many of you already know, I am a tea drinker. I drink tea religiously and have even named my dog after a tea brand for crying out loud. I’m a huge fan of the standard English Breakfast Tea, but recently I have a new obsession- Green Tea. I read in a magazine the other day that Green Tea helps boost metabolism and burns belly fat. Those two benefits had me sold. That isn’t the only reason why Green Tea is so good for you though- according to eMedExpert, an online health blog, there are 18 other reasons why Green Tea is so darn fabulous (I’ve mentioned a whopping 2 of them already).

  1. Longevity
  2. Improved memory and learning ability
  3. Weight control
  4. Skin protection from Ultraviolet
  5. Cholesterol-lowering effect
  6. Protection against diabetes and  regulation of blood glucose levels
  7. Heart protective effects: Asian paradox
  8. Anti-hypertensive effect
  9. Stroke prevention
  10. Prevention of cognitive impairment and neurodegenerative diseases
  11. Atherosclerosis prevention
  12. Anticlotting effect
  13. Increased exercise endurance
  14. Protection from negative effects of smoking
  15. Bone mineral density increase
  16. Tooth decay prevention
  17. Arthritis
  18. Antimicrobal activity
  19. Liver protection
  20. Gastrointestinal tract effects

Enough reasons to make you a Green Tea drinker?
