Green tea has become more popular these days as it’s more mild than coffee and there’re lots of health benefits apart from waking us up in the morning.
1. Green tea boosts your metabolism
If you want to lose weight, green tea can help you. Many studies have found that drinking green tea can speed up your metabolism, and now most fat-burning supplements contain green tea. If you combine drinking green tea with a healthy lifestyle, you may notice a reduction in your body fat.
2. Green tea kills bacteria, helping to fight infection
Hate the smell of coffee breath? Switch to green tea for fresher breath—various studies have found that the catechins in green tea can slow down the growth of streptococcus mutans, the primary harmful bacteria in your mouth.
It doesn’t end there. The same catechins also kill bacteria and inhibit viruses like Influenza, making you healthier.
3. Green tea lowers your risk of type II diabetes
Type II diabetes affects around 300 million people worldwide, but green tea can be used to fight the disease. Studies have found that green tea can improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar levels, which helps to lower the overall risk of developing type II diabetes.
