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.
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.
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.
