It’s green. It’s tea. And it’s one of the healthiest beverages we can drink.
It can be enjoyed hot, cold or even in powdered form, and it’s recognized for its high antioxidant content and health benefits.
Green tea is loaded with antioxidants that have many health benefits, which may include: improved brain function, weight loss, protecting against cancer and lowering the risk of heart disease.
Green tea has been shown to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol.

Regularly drinking green tea can also help you lose weight and reduce your risk of several diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Drinking three to five cups of green tea per day seems to be optimal to reap the most health benefits.
