Green Tea And Its Detoxifying Superpowers
Tea is the second most consumed beverage on Earth after water, and it is most beneficial to our health. Green tea is an amazing drink that helps boost your metabolism, have glowing and clean skin, lose weight and much more. Humans have been using green tea plants for more than 2500 years because they recognize the benefits that you can see and feel both immediately and over time.
1. Green tea helps lose weight
Green tea has the power to boost your metabolism, meaning it improves your digestion and helps release toxins from your body. A cup of green detoxifying tea has less caffeine than a cup of coffee, but it still has the fat-burning effect. This amazing plant has active compounds that boost fat burning hormones in our body, causing fat cells to burn faster. Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which makes the antioxidants-caffeine combination a perfect combo for losing weight and transforming the body into the lean and toned one you strive for. It’s suggested that you drink green tea before exercise to burn more calories. Try it. It works.
2. Green tea can help you improve memory
Science proved caffeine has a positive effect on our memory by helping us focus better and stay alerted. Green tea also contains a powerful amino acid called L-Theanine which studies show improves mental clarity and focus. This means that unlike coffee, with green tea you get the alertness without the jittery, nervousness that accompanies coffee. Next time you need to study, or you need to be extra focused on your work, make yourself a cup of green tea instead of grabbing a cup of coffee. It is much healthier and has numerous positive effects on your health. Unlike coffee, green tea has a more sustained release of caffeine in lower quantities so it doesn’t make you tired as it leaves the system.
3. Glowing skin and shiny hair
Green tea doesn’t have to be consumed as a drink. This magic herb can help you get perfect skin without spending a fortune, and it’s proven to slow down the aging process of our skin. Brew a cup of green tea. Let it cool down and when it’s cool, add a drop of an essential oil of choice. Pour your mixture into a bottle with spray and use it daily by spraying the green tea on a cotton ball or directly to your face. Green tea's detoxifying compounds will keep skin tight and glowing.
4. There are indications that the nutrients in green tea help prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Diabetes and high Cholesterol.
The antioxidants and active compounds in green tea reduce bad cholesterol, have been shown to help our blood vessels withstand changes in our blood pressure, protect against the formation of clots, slow the rise of blood sugar level after meals, etc. Scientists did research which showed green tea substances help protect brain cells from dying and restored damaged ones, increasing their healthy life cycle.
5. Green tea fights depression and helps you find balance in life
Green tea has been the subject of many independent scientific studies, because many just can’t understand how steeping leaves in hot water can have these benefits. But it does. As previously stated, Green tea contains an amino acid called L-Theanine. This can improve clarity and focus. One of the reasons that it does this is that it has a calming effect on the mind. If you fret, worry, can’t stay focused on one task long enough to get it done, which is often a result of stress, depression and overall imbalance in your life, green tea can help. While coffee alarms our nervous system in a negative way, green tea makes us feel more alert without the nervousness and anxiety. It gives us the feeling of pure relaxation and peace but does not make us tired, which is why millions of people all over the world swear by this healthy drink.
