A cup of hot fra­grant tea will not only warm you on a chilly autumn day, but also charge you with vig­or and ener­gy for the whole day.

And green tea is at the top of the list of the most healthy foods. Why is this drink so use­ful? Let’s fig­ure it out togeth­er!


Just now, dur­ing the peri­od of sea­son­al dis­eases, green tea can show its ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties. A few cups of this drink will help strength­en the immune sys­tem, acti­vate the body’s defens­es and increase sta­mi­na. Green tea is great for stim­u­lat­ing men­tal and phys­i­cal activ­i­ty and fight­ing over­work.

Oral cav­i­ty

Green drink strength­ens bone tis­sue, so it per­fect­ly pro­tects teeth from destruc­tion. The antiox­i­dants that make up green tea fight tooth decay, and the tan­nin and flu­o­rine con­tained in it strength­en the gums and tooth enam­el. Do not drink tea right away, but hold it in your mouth for a while — this way you will car­ry out a kind of pre­ven­tion of dis­eases of the teeth and gums. But remem­ber: sug­ar added to the drink deprives it of its ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties.

weight loss

Nutri­tion­ists call the green drink the ide­al way to lose weight. It does not con­tain calo­ries and remark­ably sta­bi­lizes the metab­o­lism. Thus, while enjoy­ing the taste of a cup of green tea, you simul­ta­ne­ous­ly gen­tly get rid of extra pounds. How­ev­er, if you add milk and sug­ar to the drink, the expect­ed effect of mild weight loss will not work.


Cos­me­tol­o­gists have long dis­cov­ered the reju­ve­nat­ing and antibac­te­r­i­al effects of green tea on the skin. Entire lines of cos­met­ics based on green tea are pro­duced, designed to mois­tur­ize, fight inflam­ma­tion, improve com­plex­ion and relieve skin fatigue. To get a won­der­ful ton­ic effect at home, hold a nap­kin dipped in green tea for 15–20 min­utes on your face. Rub­bing the skin of the face with iced green tea is also help­ful.
