greenteaWe have all heard about the health benefits of green tea. As it turns out green tea is the rock star of all teas! And the more it’s studied, the more benefits researchers are finding.

Green tea has long been thought to fight cancer. Great news! According to WebMD, green tea can actually prevent or slow the growth of prostate and breast cancers. A study shows that men who drank green tea had less prostate issue inflammation and lower levels of protein PSA (which is the indicator of prostate cancer).

WebMD also reported that another study conducted with nearly 500 Japanese women with Stage I and Stage II breast cancer found that drinking green tea before and after surgery was associated with lower recurrence of the cancer.

Another study in China shows people who drink green tea lower their risk of other cancers like stomach, esophageal, prostate, pancreatic and colorectal. Wow. There are also other medical conditions that can be helpful: rheumatoid arthritis, high cholesterol levels, and cardiovascular disease!

So what’s in green tea to make it so good? The secret is the catechin polyphenols, especially the EGCG! This is an anti-oxidant that kills cancer cells, lessens the growth of cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.

Green tea is also helping those on a diet. The combination of caffeine and green tea extract are helping to burn calories!

So how much green tea can help? There is much debate on how much you should drink. Because of the caffeine, it’s said that no more than two to three cups a day. But some say you can drink up to five cups a day. Use your judgement and see how it makes you feel.

Regardless, everyone should consider introducing green tea into their diets. I started drinking green tea a few months ago and I feel great!

Do you drink green tea? We would love to hear from you!
