Thinking Green – Tea, that is!
Still haven’t switched from coffee? Here are some health benefits that just may spur you to action. Studies have shown that tea, and particularly green tea, relaxes arteries and lowers blood pressure. Green tea is also being studied as a preventative for Alzheimer’s disease. Green tea has been known to prevent kidney stones, and it also helps keep bones strong, which fends off osteoporosis. Green tea gives fat metabolism a boost and its main antioxidant may even prevent cavities! Green tea has less caffeine than black tea, which has lots less caffeine than coffee but if you want to make sure you avoid that stimulant altogether reach for the decaffeinated variety. Many brands also have green teas flavored with peach, orange or even mango!
