Green Tea

Green Tea has always been in the part of my life. I started drinking Green Tea since the age of 13. Infact green tea has become a staple beverage for most Asians.

The first person who founded the benefits of green tea was Chinese Emperor Shen Nung. It was reported to have been boiling water when some leaves of the Cameilia sinensis(herbs extracted from green tea) fell into his pot.

- Weight Loss
It helps to clear the toxin. It has been found that the EGCG found in green tea diet can increase the metabolism rate in our bodies. I lost about 2 kg when i first started drinking green tea but i guessed results vary. I drink green tea everyday to maintain my figure.

- Control Cholesterol
Survey was conducted on 240 people with mild to extremely high cholesterol levels and after twelve weeks of continuous drinking of green tea, those people dropped 16% in their cholesterol levels. (WOW!!!)

- Fight Cancers
Best of all, Green Tea helps to fight different type of cancers such as stomach cancer, colon cancer, oral, prostate, breast and cervical cancers.

- Make your skin better
If you are prone to acne breakdown, PLEASE make it a habit to drink green tea. Due to toxins acumulation in our body, pollution and stress. Our skin start to dehydrate and get breakouts. By drinking green tea not only helps to protect the skin from damage due to ultraviolet light radiation but also aids in acne breakout by flushing out the toxins in our body.
