Bright, invigorating and packed with antioxidants, green tea has long been regarded as one of the healthiest beverages on the planet, used historically to restore and soothe. But what makes green tea so powerful, and what are the benefits?
Various medical studies have shown that drinking green tea offers a multitude of health benefits, the most significant being its rich natural source of antioxidants, which has been linked to cancer prevention (1).
Our Master Blenders carefully select the highest grade of green tea leaves, which contain the greatest concentration of antioxidants, adaptogens, and amino acids, helping you to take care of yourself from the inside-out.
Green Tea Keeps You in Good Shape
These natural antioxidants are also believed to boost immunity to diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, Alzheimers and heart disease by helping to lower blood pressure, cholesterol and inflammation in your body, especially with regular consumption (2)(3). Incredibly rich in vitamins such as carotene, A, D, B1, B2, and C, green tea has also been used in the past as a powerful immunity-boosting shield against colds and the flu. It is also a source of essential minerals, such as iron, sodium and potassium, which can help with the overall function of your body. In addition, green tea is naturally rich in fluorides which can help prevent tooth decay (4).
The Low-Caffeine "Chosen One"
Green tea has long been hailed as the healthiest type of tea, especially because it is made from unfermented leaves. Black tea also contains many of the same valuable health benefits but since it is fermented, many of the natural polyphenols are converted. In fact, green tea has as much as 90% more polyphenols than black tea (5)! Containing only one fifth of the caffeine of a cup of coffee, green tea can also help keep you energized and focused, without the jittery side effects that often accompany higher doses of caffeine.
Renew and revitalize your body, mind and spirit effortlessly, by adding green tea into a healthier lifestyle, one cup at a time.
