The Benefits of Green Tea


The Benefits of Green Tea
have been drinking green tea for almost 3 years or so now and still to this day I cannot fault it one bit. I usually have this hot in a mug every night and the occasional morning. It has become addictive I am so used to having this everyday that when I don't have it, it feels weird.

Green tea isn't to everyone's standards I admit when I first tried it I didn't like the taste one bit - but I tolerated it because I was determined to try anything that benefits for skin. The taste does get easier once you drink it a few times, you can drink this cold some people like to add lemon or honey to it to make the taste sweeter, but I personally prefer it hot.

Look at some of the benefits it apparently does to you I definitely agree that it gives healthy skin. 

What green tea did to my skin...
I thought I would separate this into sections as it has benefited more than just my skin. So I started drinking this mostly because of my skin, I suffered with breakouts a lot - since I was maybe 14-15. So I wanted to see if this would do anything for my spots - it did. It did take quite a few month for me to notice a difference to my face but, when I did notice I was really happy about it. My skin used to suffer with a faction of spots in certain sections of my face, until I drank green tea. It definitely had helped my spots clear away (along with creams of course!) but this definitely had an impact along the way.

What green tea did to my body...
Obviously I don't know whether its protected me against half of the things it suggests above but, I definitely 1000% know it has maintained my weight. I have to be completely honest here ever since I have been drinking this my weight always remains around the same (obviously I'll loose or gain a pound now and then) but this stuff definitely helps keep my weight at bay. Cannot recommend this enough to anyone who is looking for a alternative to help keep your ideal weight or loose weight.
I have remained the same weight for a good two years now + ever since having this in my life it has made exercising to burn a few pounds/calories really easier.
It boosts your metabolism up and since I have drank this for so long my body is used to this.

Other benefits it did for me..
I noticed when I have a cup of this near bedtime it not only helps me get to sleep a lot better (as I used to struggle sleeping beforehand) but I noticed when I have to wake up 6-7am for University or something this made it a tiny bit easier to get out of bed.
I read somewhere it can be good for stress levels - I agree with that one. It can definitely relax your body.

Tip -  Personally from my experience I found drinking this when you have a hangover is ideal too!

I have tried herbals teas, peppermint teas etc but this is definitely the one with the most benefits. Do let me know what you think of this or if you would like to see me write about other drinks/foods that have benefited me I will be happy to try

What are your thoughts on green tea??
