3 Reasons to Drink Green Tea

1. High in antioxidants, which can promote stronger bones, lower cholesterol levels, and lower rates of heart disease and some types of cancer.

2. A good source of EGCG, a polyphenol that may help to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, prevent cancer, and boost the immune system.

3. Antibacterial - a 2008 study from Egypt suggests that drinking green tea enhances the effects of antibiotics, even against drug-resistant bacteria and “superbugs.”

Introduce yourself by substituting a cup of coffee for a cup of green tea, and you will soon be enjoying the health benefits of this delicious beverage!

One of my favorite teas in Stash Chai Green Tea.
