Green tea could be the refreshing brew that you’re looking for when you feel your energy levels hit the wall on a busy day.

What’s in a Green Tea?

Green tea is delicious, comes in many different flavors and varieties, and contains L-theanine, an amino acid that’s known to help increase your alpha brain waves (which happens when you meditate). Alpha waves flood your body when you meditate and are associated with feelings of calm and relaxation and—perfect for those stressed-out afternoons when you need to calm down a bit because you feel utterly worn out but want to get some focus without a jolt of caffeine in your system. Plus, it tastes awesome!

Green tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. Various types of tea are from the dried leave and leaf buds of Camellia Sinensis.  Green tea is produced by steaming and pan-frying the leaves and dying them after.

Benefits of Drinking Green Tea

Green tea is loaded with antioxidants that may improve the brain’s functions for thinking and alertness. It does not contain as much caffeine as coffee but enough to boost brain functions.

Studies showed that drinking green tea can reduce the risk of clogged arteries.

Population studies show that drinking green tea can reduce the cancer risk of the uterus lining or endometrial cancer.

Drinking green tea might reduce the risk of high blood pressure. Some study shows that it might also slightly lower the blood pressure of people experiencing high blood pressure.

Green tea contains bioactive compounds that can reduce the formation of free radicals in our bodies. These free radicals play an important function in aging and many diseases by protecting cells and molecules from damage.

According to research, green tea can increase the fat-burning ability of our body and boost metabolic rate. It may be particularly effective at reducing dangerous abdominal fat.

And hey! Green tea can also reduce bad breath. The catechins in green tea can suppress the growth of bacteria in the mouth, reducing the risk of bad breath. A little off-topic, we at BMS offer teeth whitening service that guarantees a two or more shade whiter in less than an hour.
