Green Tea- Anti-Cancer Beverage?

Did you know that Green Tea is the #1 Anti-Cancer Beverage?

Research shows that Green Tea slows down the growth of breast cancer cells and lowers the risk of breast tumors reoccurring.

It is also known to impede the growth of cancers of the esophagus, stomach, colon, bladder,prostate, skin, and ovaries.

Researchers believe that Green Tea is helpful at reducing the risk of many cancers because it contains a powerful blend of anti-inflammatories and antioxidants.  It also holds the ability to increase the power of enzymes in our liver that detoxify toxins and carcinogens.   Most of the health benefits of tea come from substances in it called ‘polyphenols.’  The 3 main polyphenols are: gallocatechin (GC), epigallocatechin (EGC), and epigallocatechin gallate (ECGC).

With all these amazing Cancer fighting properties you can see why Green Tea has become so popular in the past few years.

Drink away!

Be Well,
