There are just too many good things to say about green tea to include them all here, so we’ve listed a couple of benefits we like about it and also suggestions on popular matcha joints in town. Enjoy!
Improve brain function
The caffeine in green tea does more than just keep you alert but also helps with your brain function. Although it is not as much as coffee, it is enough to be effective to keep you alert.
Reduce bad breath
The catechins in green tea have benefits for oral health. Studies show that the antioxidant chemical Ã¢â‚¬Å“catechinÃ¢â‚¬Â in tea can destroy bacteria and viruses that cause throat infections, dental caries and other dental conditions.
Protect the brain from ageing
It is said that green tea can help delay deterioration caused by Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Some research even claim that green tea can restore damaged brain cells.
Protect the skin from ageing
Green tea can also help with wrinkles and early signs of ageing. The polyphenols in green tea protect skin from the effects of UV light and reduce the sun damage on skin.
