Most of us today are tired of bumps, fatty pockets and increasing health issues, and have tried everything in our power to stay fit and healthy. There are hundreds and thousands of remedies available on the market that promise to put you back in shape and redress health issues. While some doctors suggest medicines and lotions, others claim proper diet, yoga and regular exercise to be very beneficial. But with today’s extremely hectic schedules and lifestyles, we’re hardly left with any time to spare for workouts at the gym or following a strict diet.

Switch to green tea. It’s not just a green liquid, it is a medicinal beverage with a multitude of uses —from preventing cancer to lowering blood pressure and much more. The reason that green tea has more health benefits than other natural products is apparent because of the way it’s processed. Green tea, when processed, retains the maximum amount of antioxidants and polyphenols, like flavonoids and catechins, which give it its plentiful benefits. So, let us discuss some of the health issues drinking green tea, every day, can help you address.

Weight Loss

Green tea increases metabolic rate. The polyphenol present in the beverage intensifies the fat oxidation level and the rate at which a human body converts food into calories. Several studies, over the years, have shown that regular consumption of green tea can significantly decrease body fat, especially in the abdominal area.

Diabetes

Type II Diabetes is a disease which has reached epidemic proportions and has affected nearly 300 million people all over the world. Green tea helps regulate the level of glucose, further slowing the rise of blood sugar level after meals. A cup of this organic beverage not only prevents high insulin spikes and the resulting fat storage, but also lowers the risk of developing Type II Diabetes.

Heart Disease

Scientists believe that green tea relaxes the lining of blood vessels in order to withstand any changes occurring in blood pressure. It also offers a protection against the formation of clots which are typically the primary cause of heart attacks in most people.
