May 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 184

To answer this question we have to understand that like anything in life, too much of something, is not good. Green Tea is thought to be a healthy and beneficial hot beverage that can increase your life quality and make you generally healthier, although this seems to be generally right, consuming it in large quantities can also mean consuming a large amount of caffeine, although it contain only quarter of the amount found in a regular cup of coffee drinking 4-5 cups a day might cause some side effects - especially for those who are sensitive to caffeine. The tea should be drank only freshly brewed out of fresh leaves - Drinking any other kind of tea (like instant tea from powder) can be harmful because industrial processing can remove the nutrients and increase the amount of metal particles like aluminium and manganese that the plant's leaves naturally store.

The Green Tea origin brings us back to around 4000 years ago when all the regions in east Asia like China and Japan began to drink this hot beverage, and besides drinking it they started using it as a medicine for everything from a light stomach ache to treating wounded after battle. Green Tea has many uses in the eastern culture and is revered. In eastern cultures it is not uncommon to see rituals that have been developed around drinking tea over the years.

Green Tea benefits are abounded, here are some of the benefits you will enjoy if you start consuming it on a regular basis. Studies show that consuming it regularly will reduce you chance for a heart disease, your blood pressure and blood sugars will change for the better and has shown to have an effect on weight loss and dental health also there are claims that believe it can be used as a treatment for cancer and for multiple sclerosis. If drinking the tea leaves is not to your taste you can always look for the alternatives in the market like it's products and like green tea extract.

In conclusion, drinking around four cups of freshly brewed green tea daily can improve your overall health and life quality, although there are some harmful effects if consumed too much, especially for those who are sensitive to caffeine, the benefits are greater than the drawbacks.

Drink, enjoy this beverage in moderation and enjoy all the health benefits in brings you.
