Drink Green Tea

Green tea is filled with polyphenois that regular black tea doesn’t have.  These polyphenois help increase alertness with less caffeine than regular black tea.  Green tea, unlike black and oolong tea, is not fermented, so the active constituents remain unaltered in the herb. The leaves of the tea plant are used both as a social and a medicinal beverage.  Green tea has been shown to mildly lower total cholesterol levels and improve the cholesterol profile (decreasing LDL “bad” cholesterol and increasing HDL “good” cholesterol) in most,but not all, studies. Green tea may also promote cardiovascular health by making platelets in the blood less sticky.
