first thing's first, What exactly is green tea anyway?
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? :-)
Tea is also effective in lowering cholesterol levels, and

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

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.
