Green Tea 300

Green Tea imageWell, first thing's first, What exactly is green tea anyway?

Green tea was first discovered by the Chinese whom have known about its health benefits since ancient times. They used green tea to treat their headaches, to their depression.

But, how can we use green tea in this day and age? Does it still work? Well, we put these questions to the test and found out several core facts about how green tea works. The main power of green tea lies in the fact that it is full of an anit-oxidant called catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

We were amazed at what this powerful little inti-oxidant has been known to do. It not only inhibits the growth of cancer cells, but it will also KILL cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. Talk about a powerful little drink, eh? :-)

Green Tea is also effective in lowering cholesterol levels, and protecting against blood clots. The fact that Green Tea will aid in protecting against blood clotting is clearly a major benefit, considering the leading cause of heart attacks is stroke... which is essentially the clogging of the arteries.

Green Tea Aids In Weight Loss!

Recently new facts have emerged, and our tests have been conclusive in seeing that green tea will even help dieters! A study done by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition released the results of a study at the University of Geneva in Switzerland, which found that men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned FAR MORE calories than those given only caffeine or a placebo. That in itself should be an eye opener to you. It sure was to us.

People normally burn around 150 calories per mile on a treadmill. Now, imagine drinking a glass of green tea before you hop of the treadmill. Walk 1 mile and burn twice that. 300 calories!

There are many other benefits of green tea, but I won't go into great detail here. Drinking green tea will help the following medical conditions:

  • cancer
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • high cholesterol levels
  • cariovascular disease
  • infection
  • impaired immune function

With all these good things said about green tea, there has got to be a drawback, right? The only drawback which green tea may cause in a rare few is insomnia, due to the fact that it contains caffeine... BUT you'll be glad to know that it contains less caffiene that coffee.

So... does Green Tea live up to all of its hype? After our review, we give it 3 thumbs up. I know I'll be adding it to my daily menu and I urge you to do the same.

We've found a website that is currently offering a free 30 day supply of green tea, but we're not sure how long this will last... so I'd suggest going there now and signing up for a free supply as soon as possible. Oh, and Green Tea was recently discussed on the Oprah show!
