Benefits of green tea

Originating in China, green tea has been used as a medicine for thousands of years. It serves many great purposes from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer.

Some of the benefits of green tea according to Lifehack are:

  1. Weight loss
  2. Diabetes
  3. Heart disease
  4. Esophageal Cancer
  5. Cholesterol
  6. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s
  7. Tooth decay
  8. Blood pressure
  9. Depression
  10. Anti-viral and anti-bacterial
  11. Skincare

How much should you drink? Even though green tea has many benefits, one cup of tea a day will not be sufficient. Many sources say that you can drink as little as two cups a day, up to even ten cups. You just need to find a good range that personally works for you so you get the benefits without having to go to the bathroom constantly.

Another notable point is that green tea contains caffeine. Therefore, you should be aware if you are sensitive to caffeine then you should limit yourself.
