Green Tea Benefits That You Should Definitely Know 2015

Green tea has been known to be a healthier substitute to normal beverages like coffee and other types of tea, owing to its lower caffeine content. It also contains very strong natural antioxidants called polyphenols, which not only help you attain a healthy body, skin and hair, but have been known to help block the growth of cancer cells as well.
Green tea is also a healthier option owing to the way it is processed. It is derived from the leaves of the plant, Camellia sinensis. The green leaves for green tea are steamed, which helps in preventing catechins from oxidizing, while black and oolong tree are made from fermented leaves, which lead to the loss of this very important anti-oxidant. Of late, majority of the people living in Western countries have been found to have switched over from drinking black tea to green tea.

Tip: To get the most out of your cup of green tea, we suggest that you brew it from the loose tea leaves instead of using the tea bag for convenience. This not only imparts flavor but also allows the release of more antioxidants into your cup
