About This Food

Description

Green tea has gained great popularity in the U.S. in the last decade stemming from recent findings on its numerous healing properties.

In fact, studies have shown that enjoying 4 cups of tea a day can substantially lower your risk of heart disease and stroke. What's more, a meta-analysis of studies on green tea conducted at the University of Minnesota found that women drinking the most tea had a 22 percent lower risk of breast cancer.

Researchers credit powerful phenols, EGCG and other antioxidants in green tea for the healthy benefits.
