Hi everyone! I've been doing some research on the healing properties and wellness qualities of Green Tea in the last 6 months. I wanted to start a thread and get a feel for how many of you drink Green Tea on a daily basis and how many of you know all of the good things that it does for our bodies. For starters: 1)It is loaded with antioxidants & polyphenols that can keep our cells healthy, which in turn keeps us from getting sick. 2)It is believed that it prevents cancer. 3)It can act as weight loss vehicle by curbing your appetite. 4)It has been shown in studies to boost memory functions. The Asians have been drinking Green Tea for thousands of years. I read a quote recently from ancient Asian history that says. "I would rather go three days without food than a single day without green tea." Currently, I drink 4-5 cups of green tea a day. I usually go through a whole box of green tea once a week and a jar of honey every two weeks. I've only been drinking the wonderful concoction for 6 months but I've not been sick (knock wood) since I've been drinking it. (I haven't gotten any of the colds or flu-bugs that have been going around this winter.) I read somewhere that some Asians drink 10-12 cups a day and can live into their 80-90's without disease or health complications.
