Here’s 3 BIG reasons to drink green tea
1. ZERO CALORIES
Yes! You can drink as much as you want. Sometimes when you feel a little hungry (and it’s not time to eat) a cup of green tea – particularly blended with some very satisfying ‘food’ like flavours will satisfy.
2. THE ‘RIGHT’ AMOUNT OF CAFFEINE
If you love your coffee (ie RELY on your coffee in the morning), you might struggle to resist the temptation to reach for a 2nd, 3rd or even 4th cup throughout the day. Coffee’s great if you have to do the vacuuming or run a marathon, but if you haven’t got an outlet for all those jitters, or if you just want to cut down your caffeine intake, green tea is perfect. It’s got a little caffeine (to stimulate the mind), but not nearly enough to make you feel ‘wired’.
3. HEALTH BENEFITS
The health benefits of drinking green keep increasing!
The University of Maryland, USA has a fairly extensive list (which have all undergone some scientific research). The reported benefits to date range from lowering cholesterol, treating cancers, weight loss and liver disease.
