Green tea’s centuries-old reputation as a naturally-beneficial and perfectly-balanced drink is fast making its way to the forefront of today’s health trend.
Since ancient times, the Chinese have been using green tea to cure anything from headache to depression. One ancient Chinese proverb even states, better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one.
In this age of fitness and form, health-conscious Generation X has brought this beverage back in the limelight, and its rising popularity is attributed to its abundance of natural ingredients, which are beneficial to the body: antioxidants, as well as a variety of vitamins and minerals. The presence of both caffeine and theanine makes it the drink with “perfect balance.”
Green tea’s natural, though minimal, caffeine content helps increase alertness and improve concentration. By gently stimulating the heart and the respiratory system, green tea assists in bringing more oxygen to the brain, keeping drinkers on their toes. Green tea has one of the lowest caffeine levels among all tea types.
Theanine combats stress, tension and anxiety without inducing drowsiness, giving the drinker a sense of calm and “relaxed alertness.” Researchers have also stated that when theanine is consumed on a regular basis, it can diminish Pre Menstrual Syndrome and lower the blood pressure.
