Every morning I enjoy sipping green tea. I try to have at least five cups throughout the day. Why?
- Research has shown that people drinking at least five cups of green tea a day have a significantly lower risk – 23% for women – of dying from ALL causes. Now I am not afraid of dying, but I really would like to go naturally.
- I have friends and family who have had breast cancer (1 out of 7 women will get breast cancer) – studies have shown that women drinking the most green tea were 22% less likely to develop breast cancer.
- I had been diagnosed with osteopenia. A noted lead researcher Amand Devine stated that flavonoids from green tea may be stimulating osteoblast function, resulting in increases in bone density. Osteoblasts are the cells responsible for producing new bone.
How about you? Have high triglicerides? Concerned about cardiovascular disease (CVD)? Is Colon Cancer in your family? Ovarian Cancer? Prostrate Cancer? Bladder Cancer? Kidney Cancer? Lung Cancer?
Research in all these areas have shown Green Tea to be preventative (lowering the risk of developing in the first place) or beneficial in healing.
Green tea helps lower high blood pressure, lowers LDL and raises HDL, improves insulin sensitivity in Type 2 diabetes and minimizes damage to the brain after having a stroke. Green tea protects the liver from alcohol and other toxic chemicals.
It begs the question: Why aren’t you drinking green tea every day?
