Have you ever stopped to take a closer look at the health benefits of green tea? This tea has been around for centuries and it has been used medicinally to help counteract many adverse health issues. Green tea is well known for its antioxidant content. Antioxidants help reduce the risk of disease by helping to flush out the free radicals in your system. Free radicals can come from our daily exposure to things like car exhaust, UV rays and industrial fumes. Our bodies need antioxidants, from our diet, to help fight off oxidative stress.
By drinking 1 to 2 cups of green tea, without sugar, per day you can start reaping its health benefits. As you think green for the week of St. Patrick’s Day try starting a new routine of enjoying green tea. This may not be your traditional St. Paddy’s day drink but it has a lot to offer.
