TEA LOVERS UNITE


  Addiction to coffee and soda abound.  

I remember reading a short while back about a woman in England who was in her 30’s and her death was partially attributed to her addiction to cola drinks.  She drank several GALLONS a day.  

But addiction to green tea may be good.  The main reason is the high levels of antioxidants found in green tea.  This is due to the way green tea is made.  

It is made from unfermented tea leaves.  These antioxidants are called polyphenols.  These antioxidants fight off damaging particles called free radicals.  This removal of free radicals protects our cells and our cells DNA.  

Green tea may lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.  It  may lower the risk of developing cancer and may also help control sugar levels in diabetics.
