Or winter that is if you're in England, we're having a lovely winter this spring! *sigh*
While i've been absent, i have started a new habit.. drinking green tea! Now, if you haven't heard green tea is good for then i hope the rock you've been living under is damn good! We all get told green tea is good for us and we all know it is, however not many of us make a habit of drinking it which is a shame.
In the past i'd tried green tea, but i didn't really like it, a couple month ago i decided to give it another go, and whatever it was, this time i did actually didn't mind it. So now i've replaced my normal tea with green tea.
Many people drink green tea purely because of its benefits not because of how it tastes but personally, i love the taste of it!
So what are the actual benefits of green tea?
It Helps Burn Fat by increasing your metabolism because its antioxidants help the liver to function better. Although it might not make you look like a supermodel in five days, it can be a boost to use with a healthy exercise routine.
Helps Protect Against Heart Disease And Diabetes green tea has been shown to lower cholesterol as well as protecting against diabetes because of the enzymes it has.
It also helps Protect Against Bad Breath And Tooth Decay, green tea can destroy bacteria that causes tooth decay as well as sore throats because it is an anti-bacterial agent.
And last of all it can help Reduce Wrinkles And Signs Of Ageing this is because of its antioxidants and anti-inflammatory activities which slow down ageing and help protect against skin cancer.
These are obviously not all the benefits green tea has, just a few. Personally i've only noticed the improvements on my skin since i've been drinking it however the rest of the benefits aren't exactly visible.
The green tea i drink is Lord Nelson, but i don't really see a difference in brands to be honest.
I hope you do try green tea because the benefits are great! Do you drink green tea? If you do, tell me what you think of it below!
