Maybe you’ve seen these people…or maybe you are one already. They sip green tea at the coffee and tea houses. Not only are they raising the “cool” factor, they are deriving multiple health and lifestyle benefits from green tea. If you aren’t already on the green tea bandwagon, consider these benefits…
It makes you smarter – the caffeine level in green tea is less than in coffee, but you still get stimulant effects in a milder way. In the brain, caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine. This jump starts the firing on neurons and increases dopamine and norepinephrine levels. Green tea also has the amino acid L-theanine, which improves brain function and reduces anxiety.

It protects your brain in old age – Bioactive catechin compounds in green tea have been proven in studies to protect neurons and may reduce the risk of both Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, the two most common neurodegenerative disorders.
It lowers cancer risk – the powerful antioxidants in green tea are well known to protect cells and lower your risk of cancer. Specifically, studies have shown that women who drink green tea had a 22% lower risk of developing breast cancer. In men, a 48% lower risk of prostate cancer. And a 57% lower risk of colorectal cancer in women.
