As humans, we often look far for things that are close by. In fact, we often search the world over for things that are right in own backyards! Or should I say, we often scour the air for something that lies right under our noses!

Nature has gifted us with some many miracle working substances that have been discovered so long ago that they are often forgotten. Reintroducing…the super potent – green tea.

While major search engines such as “Google” turn up millions of searches for “natural energy booster” or “cancer fighting foods,” the very people who are searching for these remedies are looking beyond their own kitchen shelves – where humbly sits the green tea bag.

So without further ado, here are some of the health benefits of drinking green tea – and none of them are overstated!

  1. Green tea possesses polyphenols which possess high anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
  2. The beverage possesses high anti-oxidant properties.
  3. Improves brain function.
  4. Releases energy.
  5. Lowers the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson Diseases.
  6. Kills bacteria and improves dental health.
