Green Tea
What is it?  

What is it? Green tea originates from the Camellia Sinensis leaves and buds that have not undergone the same fermentation and oxidation process used to make oolong teas and black teas. 

Green Tea contains many essential vitamins and minerals with up to 30 percent polyphenols by weight.  Catechins are antioxidants that help prevent cell damage.  The exceptional compound in Green Tea is “EGCG”  (Epigallocatechin Gallate). These Natural Antioxidants help prevent free radical damage thus helping to prevent premature aging. 

Green Tea is an Adaptogen Companion. 

Life extending catechins,(EGCG), weight loss, digestive, oral, immune & heart health, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, neuro-protective, & helps balance blood sugar.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19437116A comprehensive review of observational studies found that women who drank the most green tea had an approximately 20–30% lower risk of developing breast cancer, one of the most common cancers in women

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23803878An analysis of 17 studies in 1,133 people showed that green tea consumption significantly reduced fasting blood sugar and insulin levels

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25052177An analysis of 12 studies in more than 760,000 people found that drinking 3 cups (710 ml) or more of tea daily was linked to a 16% lower risk of type 2 diabetes
