The Health Benefits of Green Tea

New here?  Follow us on Bloglovin'!
Rather recently, (not that recently in the grand scheme of our life) we discovered our love of tea.  I think we both kind of avoided it since we weren't huge coffee fans.

We even made this strange YouTube video with the process of making tea when we first started liking it. . . almost 2 years ago.

Not only is tea great it also has some major health benefits (and energy benefits if you go for caffeinated tea).  Of course, there are lots of different kinds of tea, which means they have their own features.  We're going to start with green.

Cheerios can step aside!  Studies show green tea is able to lower cholesterol and prevent many heart related issues.  Just don't load it up with too much sugar!

Ever find yourself walking into a room just to forget why?  Well green tea can help.  A Swiss study showed that people who drank green tea had greater activity in the working-memory area of their brain.

Though there is no evidence yet that green tea kills cancer cells, it is known to help healthy cells in all different stages.

After a long day working, it's nice to unwind.  But, coffee just gets you wound up and then you can't sleep! Drinking tea helps you relax, because of a natural chemical called theanine.  However, make sure you are just heating your water to the temperature you want it- no need to get it boiling.  Boiling the water for brewing tea will get rid of theanine's effect.

In the winter, it seems like everyone is sick.  Sure you can spray Lysol on everything, BUT THERE'S A BETTER WAY I SWEAR.  Catechins, found in green tea have been known to have a major positive effect on your immune system.  Of course adding lemon gets you some extra vitamin C for that immune system as well.  That way you can stay healthy all through flu season!

It's a known fact that literally no one likes getting breakouts.  No one.  The antibacterial properties of green tea are known to fight off acne and the anti-inflammatory properties reduce swelling and redness.

Green tea, am I right?
