Coffee and black tea have long featured as preferred beverage options for a lot of people. However, increasing awareness about the need to improve lifestyles has led to raised consumption of healthier alternatives such as green tea. The antibacterial, antifungal and antioxidant properties of this variety of tea address various health issues — ranging from bad breath to blood pressure.
In fact, considering our stationary lifestyle and growing intake of fast foods, green tea is today more important than ever. A new study published online in The FASEB Journal suggests that green tea could help increase insulin resistance and cognitive impairment induced by high-fat and high-fructose diets. Some studies also suggest that green tea can help fight off allergies.
Here are some additional benefits of consuming green tea on a daily basis:
1. It curbs cholesterol.
2. It promotes healthier skin.
3. Green tea relieves physical and mental fatigue.
4. It builds immunity.
5. Helps remove phlegm.
6. Green tea helps detox your body.
So now that you are aware of the perks, it is time to switch from high caffeinated beverages to green tea for a healthier lifestyle.
