Benefits of Drinking Green Tea

Green Tea

Drinking green tea daily is one of the best health habits you can adopt. Studies have shown that regular consumption can improve the ratio between good and bad cholesterol, ease mild depression, and help prevent diabetes. Perhaps the greatest green tea benefit is the presence of polyphenol oxidase – an abundant supply of antioxidants. Antioxidants can be termed as the true elixir of life.


One of the most encouraging recent studies, published in the September 13, 2006 Journal of the American Medical Association, found that among 40,530 Japanese adults followed for 11 years, there was a 16 percent lower risk of death from all causes among those who drank more than 5 cups of green tea a day compared to those who drank less than one cup daily.

The activity of antioxidants in tea is more than that in over 21 fruits and vegetables.
