Green Tea Keeps You Fitter And Younger
Recent studies tell us that drinking Green Tea could keep us younger, and fitter in our later years. It has been shown that those who drank green tea on a regular basis remained more physically active for longer.
Coffee and regular tea does not offer the same benefits.
The three year long study involved over 14000 men and women aged 65 years and older, records were kept on what they eat and drank, and also documented any care that they needed throughout the period.
The proof was quite conclusive, the more green tea they consumed, the more self sufficient and mobile they were, those that drank 5 cups a day were found to be 33% less likely to develop any disability,, three cups a day reduced the risks by 25%
All in all the study showed that green tea provided far more health benefits than regular drinks.
What makes Green Tea So Healthy
It contains high levels of Polyphenols, these contain chemicals that reduce and control cholesterol levels and protect DNA from damage. Some green teas are also a good source of anti oxidants, these help remove harmful toxins from the body, reducing the risk of disease and other health issues.
The only people that shouldn’t drink Green Tea are those who are on Warfarin to control blood thickness, it can in some cases stop the drug working correctly.

What Tea(s) Should I Lookout For
Three of the best Green teas are Sencha, Puerh and Wuyi Cliif Oolong, each has its own unique health giving benefits.
Always try to buy the best Green tea that you can afford, some of the cheaper brands in the supermarkets are quite weak formulations, that afford minimal health benefits, if pushed, we would recommend Tava Tea as the one to choose – blended from all the above green teas without any worthless filler ingredients.
Tava Tea has been proved to be an effective health giving drink – plus it also tastes good!!
