Home > Benefits of drinking green tea

Green tea was originally drunk in China and has become popular in the western world due to its health benefits.

In Japan green tea is often drunk with every meal.

It boosts your immune system making you less likely to get colds, flu or other viruses.

It can also lower blood pressure. High blood pressure is more common in diabetes and increases your risk of stroke and heart disease. Members of my family tend to have this condition.

It has lots of antioxidants which have been known to fight against free radicals.

Free radicals are a group of atoms which are unstable. They can damage your skin, accelerating the aging process. They can also damage the human body leaving you prone to cancer and cardiovascular diseases e.g heart disease and other diseases.

Drinking green tea also lowers your cholesterol which also decreases your risk from cancer, heart disease and stroke.

Green tea can also help with fertility

It can help with fertility because it does not contain any caffeine and is full of antioxidants.

Drinking 1 cup per day can double your chances of conception per month. It contains 2 main ingredients hypoxanthine and polyphenols, They both increase female fertility as it helps with the maturing of the eggs before conception.

It can also help with male fertility as it has been known to increase the sperm count and mobility.

It helps with lowering blood sugar. That is especially good for keeping your diabetes under control and at less risk of complications.

You can buy green teas with fruit, jasmine, lotus, earl grey or plain.

Also putting a slice of lemon in it will add to the taste.

I myself am not too keen on the taste of green tea so I drink the ones that come with fruit. They taste better for me so I can get the health benefits.

I also need to get in the habit of drinking more as I could do with some help to lose weight.
