Green Tea has only recently received
Green Tea has only recently received attention in the western world and yet for literally thousands of years it has been used in Asia as a cure for all types of ailments. Whilst many of the claims about the benefits of Green Tea in your diet cannot be fully substantiated by modern medical science the wealth of experience gained over such a prolonged period of time indicated that the benefits are real and wide ranging. So how can we benefit from Green Tea in a busy modern day life?
Green Tea is very readily available, reasonable affordable and it is simple to prepare and include in our everyday diet. You can drink it hot or cold and whilst many find Green Tea a pleasant taste, if you don''t, then there are many different flavoured teas available to choose from. It can also be taken as a pill or included with other supplements specifically targeted to help you overcome a complaint.
Over the last few decades many problems such as over weight, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and so on have increased to near epidemic proportions. This is in many ways due to our modern lifestyle. The availability of high protein, high fat, high carb'' diet along with lack of proper exercise and stresses of modern life. All of which are now pretty well documented and yet the the real results of which we can only just see the ''tip of the iceberg''. Green Tea taken in moderation every day may well help alleviate any of these problems. It can suppress the appetite, increase the metabolism, improve your digestive system and contains anti-oxidants that will can fight and remove the bodies toxins.
Taking time out from a busy day to sit and relax with a cup of Green Tea can help reduce stress levels and help soothe the mind as well as the body. So don''t let the thousands of years of practical wisdom go to waste. Try Green Tea in your diet and reap the benefits. Just a word of warning though that Green Tea does contain caffeine and as with anything else should only be taken in moderation.
