All About Green Tea

Green Tea is extracted from the Camellia Sinensis plant. The earliest recording of Green Tea use was in China, but it is now cultivated in Japan, Vietnam and India. All of which claim to be the founders of Green Tea. Green Tea was thought to have been discovered by Emperor Shen Nong who witnessed Green Tea leaves falling into a pot of boiling water in his garden. He enjoyed the flavour and recommended it to all despite not knowing its health benefits.

Green Tea is packed full of Vitamins A, B2, B3, B6, C, E, Folic Acid, Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus and much more. One study required participants to drink Green tea every day for 12 weeks they found that average weight decreased by 0.7-1kg.

      Green tea has been quite the hero over the last decade in its popularity to help with weight loss due to the compound it contains known as EGCG. It’s also a great remedy for reducing your caffeine intake since green tea is much lower than black tea, coffee, or sugary energy drinks that are spiked with high doses of caffeine which can lead to adrenal fatigue and caffeine dependence. But this humble plant is much more beneficial than most of us realize. Aside from reduced caffeine intake and weight loss, there are many other ways you can benefit from using green tea.

      So, now you might be wondering… What kind should you buy? There are many types of green teas on the market. You want to search for one that is organic since tea leaves are often sprayed with all sorts of pesticides and chemicals, and it’s also great to look for one that isn’t flavored with artificial sweeteners like many pre-made green tea drinks are. Buy the simple green tea bags or try matcha tea (unheated green tea) which is sold in tins that you can either brew or use in smoothies and fun drink recipes.
