Green Tea – A better morning pick-me-up

Looking for a better pick-me-up in the morning? Try green tea and reap the health-enhancing welfare of antioxidants along with enough caffeine to get you moving without being jittery. Here’s what Harvard’s Women’s Health Watch has to say about green tea.

A satisfying beverage with a light taste and color.

Tea’s health benefits are largely due to its high content of flavonoids — plant-derived compounds that are antioxidants. Green tea is the best food source of a group called catechins. In test tubes, catechins are more powerful than vitamins C and E in halting oxidative damage to cells and appear to have other disease-fighting properties. Studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder.
