Recent research has shown Green Tea to be a good source of anti-oxidants. There is a debate regarding the precise benefits of green tea, but it is largely agreed that it helps prevent cancer, heart disease and other age related problems. Here are some other benefits of this drink.
1. Green tea helps in lowering cholesterol levels.
2. If taken regularly, it raises the body's metabolism which helps in burning more calories.
The taste factor
If you like regular tea, chances are you will probably like Green tea as well. But if you are not too much of a tea drinker, well, there is no harm in trying, is there? Also, there are different flavors available these days (lemon, for example), so hunt around and you would probably be able to find a flavor to suit your taste buds.
So how much should you take?
Normally, drinking up to 5 to 6 cups of Green tea in a day is good for you. So drink away!!
