Green Tea Not Just a Tasty Beverage

Home » Chinese Medicine News and Research » Green Tea Not Just a Tasty Beverage

There are huge amounts of evidence about the many health benefits of drinking green tea. Just in the past six months I’ve found three articles about different health conditions that may respond to green tea.

In May, a study found that the antioxidants in green tea may help protect the brain from the harmful effects of sleep apnea. A Greek study found that green tea can help to prevent heart disease by improving blood flow and relaxing the arteries. And just last week, a study was published showing that green tea may prevent or slow the development of type I diabetes.

In my opinion, one of the best parts about this information is that green tea is widely available to the average American. You don’t need a doctor’s prescription, and it’s all natural!

If you prefer black tea (which is the same plant as green tea, just processed differently), don’t despair– it is also high in antioxidants. See my blog article on black tea for type II diabetes.
