Green tea, native to China and India, has been consumed and hailed for its health benefits for centuries globally, but has only recently gained popularity. The tea is prepared from the un-oxidized leaves followed by minimum processing, hence it is the least oxidized type of tea.

Green tea is a soothing and rejuvenating drink for both the mind and body, making it a phenomenal health drink.

Below are a few health benefits of green tea:

*  Green tea is rich in antioxidants, hence the excessive cell growth that results in cancer can be averted. Studies reveal that prostate, colorectal, breast cancer can be prevented by green tea.

* Green tea has the potential to boost brain function, slower aging, shield the brain from neurogenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and the onset of dementia.

* Consuming green tea lowers the bad cholesterol, hence the risk of heart attacks can be kept at bay.

* Green tea is loaded with polyphenols, flavonoids and hence serves as an immunity booster.

* Green tea helps keep diabetes at bay and benefits people who are already suffering from type 2 diabetes. Proper consumption of green tea reduces blood sugar levels.
