I’m still starting every morning with green tea. Well I was missing it 1 week since I left it when we moved, but I bought more tea yesterday. Anyway I thought I would tell you the benefits with green tea and why you should drink it. I’ve written a similar post about it before but I’ve got a lot more new followers since then so here we go! I remember I used to dislike green tea because I didn’t like the taste, but you get used to it. I recommend you to buy “real” green tea, it’s worth putting a bit extra money to this if you want the real benefits from green tea. If you don’t like the flavour just try to ad a bit honey to it until you have got used to the taste.
-Antioxidants. It’s good for the skin since it contains a lot of antioxidants that has a anti-aging benefit. I like to drink it before I eat breakfast (I normally eat the breakfast 10-20 minutes later).
– Caries & Breath. Good for your teeth and lowers the risk of getting caries. It also gives you a good breath (?) I ‘ve read this in a few different places I’m not sure if it’s 100% true though.
– Diabetes. Lowers the risk of diabetes type 2. I’m in the risk of diabetes (both my dad and grandmother had it) so I have always been told to take it easy with the sugar.
– Helps you to relax. You can find the amino acid Theanine in green tea leaves which makes you relax.
– Immune system. Green tea also boosts your immune system.
I thought I would start with these tips again. I will write about something new every week, everything from clothes, food etc. I hope you like it! Love, N
