Green Tea

I've been on a green tea kick lately because I keep reading good things about it.

In studies, green tea has been shown to boost your metabolism, helping you to burn more fat, prevent cancer and heart disease, stave off dementia, prevent blood clots, protect the liver from the effects of alcohol and more...

I'm far from an expert on the subject, so here's what smart people in the know say about it:

Shape Magazine discusses a study that suggests green tea can help prevent weight gain.

WebMD has a good chunk of information on green tea's benefits.

The World's Healthiest Foods is great source of information on green tea's benefits complete with studies to back up their claims.

So, what are you waiting for? Go get some green tea!

I've been trying to drink 3-4 cups of green tea a day, as that's the amount traditionally consumed in Asian societies and therefore what most of the studies used as a basis for their research.

I love Choice's Green Moroccan Mint, it's organic and fair trade.

Green Tea Extract capsules are also available if you're not a tea drinker.

  1. I recently jumped on the green tea bandwagon after drinking a ton of it in Japan. I add a little milk in mine and it is delicious!

    1. I love how it's just part of the culture in Japan to drink tea so often, you can easily drink 3 or more cups a day without even realizing it!
