Green tea has become increasingly popular over a very short time span. Not only can you quench your thirst by drinking something delicious, but this drink has also been proven to serve your health in a number of ways.
Thus, parents should start to suggest green tea for their children to drink.
Results have come in showing that green tea has been directly connected with preventing and helping many long-term health issues as well as having an influence on weight loss.
Drinking green tea isn’t a typical, “make sure you eat your veggies at dinner,” kind of precaution. It is just as good as the pop or juice that your children love to drink, with great flavor and the hidden benefits.
What You Talking About Green Tea For?!?!
Green tea contains a number of antioxidants, more commonly known in the green tea world as catechins. These catechins work in our favor.
They chase around free radicals that have a helping hand in DNA damage as well as cancer. One of the main derivatives of green tea is called epigallocatehcin-3-gallate or EGCG. This EGCG has been proven to get a hold of and stop cells that are multiplying and reproducing out of control.
These cells are more commonly known as cancer. Arthritis is another extreme disease that green tea protects your body against. Again, EGCG comes into play; it protects against the destruction of cartilage and reduces the swelling and pain in your joints.
Cholesterol levels and heart disease have also been positively affected by drinking green tea.
Now, the green tea benefits mentioned above were for long term and extremely life threatening diseases. Parents should start their children out young drinking green tea, because green tea is also used for simple, daily life, safety measures.
For example, boosting immune systems, fighting the cause of allergies, defending your body against infections, preventing tooth decay, and reducing acne are basic, but important advantages you can get out of green tea.
You may be thinking, “Really, it can prevent tooth decay and reduce acne?” The answer is yes. The plaque found in your teeth is cause by bacteria and simply drinking green tea can kill those bacteria.
As for acne, green tea can help in a number of ways. For example, the antibacterial contents attack and kill acne bacteria. Also, anti-inflammatory and antioxidants work to prevent swelling, redness, and kill free radicals that will irritate the skin.
As you can see, green tea can be very beneficial, whether you are a child or an adult. However, as a parent, I would recommend getting a head start with your children. Let them drink green tea and insist that they drink it. Green tea is tasty and it will also be protecting their bodies from many basic and serious problems with out them even knowing.
