TUESDAY TIP – GREEN TEA

Green tea is sooooo good for you.   Unlike black teas, it is not processed much before it’s poured in your cup, so it’s rich in catechins (antioxidants).

Research shows that green tea:

  • Improves blood flow
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Helps prevent high blood pressure
  • Helps stabilise blood sugar

Sipping tea helps you slow down and relax.  A natural chemical called theanine found in green tea can provide a calming effect.

But perhaps the biggest benefit, which you get right away, is just taking a tea break. Here’s how to make your next cup:
  • Don’t add green tea to boiling water. It’s bad for catechins, those healthy chemicals in the tea. Better to use 160-170 degree water.
  • Add lemon. Vitamin C makes the catechins easier to absorb. Dairy, on the other hand, makes it harder to absorb them.
