A list of the basic green tea benefits is shown below for your quick learning. *Please talk to your doctor before starting to use green tea if you have any specific ailments and/or taking medications.
Green Tea is one of the best natural sources of antioxidants we have. The therapeutic benefits are tops, especially for cancer of any kind, and green tea is extremely cost effective compared to alternatives. Used by cultures all over the world, Green Tea is one of the nature’s most beneficial and readily available substances. And, consuming it in powder form, as Ground Green Tea, provides many times more antioxidants than Green Tea brewed from bags or loose leaves because most of the antioxidants are not water soluble and do not come out into the brew water–so we don’t get them unless we eat the leaves.”
