Green Tea, Health Benefits?

Health Benefits of Green Tea

Health Benefits of Green Tea

Do you know what the health benefits of drinking green tea are?

Every January a good chunk of the population ponders what they can do to improve on their physical health in the coming year.

I am not akin to thinking along these lines either, because for me, there is always room for improvement.  I don’t necessarily make promises to myself that I know I won’t keep.  But I also don’t discount the opportunity to strive for a healthier me either.

Like many, I too could stand to lose some weight, eat healthier, commit to drinking more water daily, cut sugar from my diet, and exercise more frequently.

I could also stand to drink more tea.  But for whatever reason, I almost always reach for my coffee cup over my teacup. I enjoy trying different tea’s to see which flavors I prefer and I like researching the health benefits associate with drinking different tea’s.

I recently did a little research on the health benefits of drinking green tea.  After reading several articles I’m pretty impressed with what I read, and the proposed health benefits of drinking green tea.

I found the link above quite interesting.  It explains the possible health benefits associated with drinking green tea.  It also discusses the nutritional breakdown of green tea, the different forms of green tea, and the precautions associated with drinking it.

In 2017, I’m going to attempt to drink more tea and less coffee.  It will be a challenge because of my love for coffee. But I don’t think it will be impossible for me to accomplish.  Now cutting sugar and regular exercise, I will really need to stay focused to reach and maintain those goals.

How about you?  How much tea do you drink?  Do you believe there are health benefits associated with drinking certain types of tea. Which one do you prefer and why?
