I want to make sure I cover all of the basis for my readers to keep you coming back for more. We always talk about hair, makeup, and fashion, but none of that is any good if the body is not properly taken care of. We have to keep the canvas clean!
With that in mind, I have decided to post weekly healthy living ideas that any diva can use.
My very first one will be now:
I know you have heard over and over how green tea is good for you, but there are some truths to this phenomena, believe me.
I drink green tea daily, especially in the winter months. I read where drinking hot water helps kill the virus that causes H1N1. If you drink hot water w/green tea, you get two benefits at one time. Antioxidants such as polyphenols in green tea can neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. You can go to http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/green-tea-000255.htm to read the long list of benefits from drinking green tea. It is also said to fight the agents that cause numerous types of cancers.
As with anything, there are always side effects. Even though they are slight, you should still educate yourself before trying out this tea. You can find them listed at http://www.amazing-green-tea.com/green-tea-side-effects.html
I have been drinking it for years and at 41 years of age, I rarely have a cold(I have not had one in over a year), my allergies are very slight compared to before I started drinking green tea, and my weight stays pretty even(considering I can't get to the gym three times a week due to school).
My favorites are Tazo Green Tea The Vert and Bigelow Green Tea brands. I only sweeten mine with Sugar in the Raw Natural Cane Sugar (1 tablespoon) but you can add more to your liking.
Try it and tell me what you think!
