also reduce bad breaths for those with dental problems.

tea has a bit of caffeine that isn’t as much as that found in coffee.
It has enough to produce a response without causing the “jumpy” effects
of too much caffeine.

caffeine, it has amino acids L-theanine which is able to cross the
blood-brain barrier, it increases the ability working synergistically

II diabetes involves having elevated blood sugar levels in the context
of insulin resistance. Multiple studies have shown that green tea can
improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood sugar levels. A study in

increase the metabolism rate in the body. Another study showed that fat
oxidation was increased by 17%, indicating that green tea may
selectively increase the burning of fat.
It
helps reduce body fat, especially in the abdominal area. A particular
study had a controlled practical on 240 men and women for a period of 12
weeks, in this study the people taking green tea had a significant
decrease in body fat percentage, body weight, waist circumference and
abdominal fat.

Green
tea can be consumed between meals. Since it has the potential to absorb
iron, drinking it between meals will ensure it’s not sucking up any
health benefits from other foods you are consuming.
Some studies
made on green tea don’t agree totally with the idea that it reduces fat
or increases metabolism rate. But from the little I have read and
practiced, I can testify of the wonders gotten from this simple yet
powerful beverage.
