Green Tea- Is it good for me?!

Hey guys!

I’m excited to share with you some Healthy Breast Tips.

This week I will be talking about Green Tea.

There is a lot of controversy over Green Tea and whether or not it is good for you.  I was recently chatting with one of my friends who mentioned  that she doesn’t drink Green Tea anymore because of the caffeine in it.  This is a HUGE misconception.  Green Tea is extremely healthy for you.   Research shows that 8-10 cups a day can significantly lower the risk of breast cancer.  Green tea naturally contains Theanine.  Theanine is an amino acid that has calming and relaxing effects. Theanine blocks the binding of l-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors in the brain.  Research shows that people who take daily Theanine supplements tend to have more alpha-brain wave activity in the brain which is sign of enhanced relaxation

 This intern cancels the effect of caffeine in Green Tea.

So drink up!  And don’t worry- if 8-10 cups sounds like a lot (and it is!) you can take a Natural Green Tea Supplement.  Here at Thermography for Health NY we offer a superior Green Tea extracted from the cleanest source!
