I'm Stacey Licht with Transformation Thrive, and I'm gonna give you six reasons to drink green tea. The first reason is that green tea contains a powerful antioxidant called EGCG, which inhibits metabolic syndrome and increases the rate in which your body burns fat, speeding weight loss by 77 percent. The second reason to drink green tea is that EGCG helps to prevent and eliminate several different types of cancer including colon, lung, skin, breast and prostate cancer. This is due to the fact that EGCG inhibits tumor cell growth and literally causes cancer cells to commit suicide. The third reason to drink green tea is that it stabilizes energy by balancing blood sugar. EGCG improve insulin use in the body to prevent sugar spikes and crashes that can lead to fatigue, irritability and cravings for unhealthy foods. The fourth reason to drink green tea is that it prevents the buildup of cholesterol in arteries, which reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. The fifth reason to drink green tea is that it provides anti-allergy and immune system support by reducing a principal allergen antibody called immunoglobulin E. And the sixth reason to drink green tea is that it is anti-aging. EGCG has been show to be 200 times more powerful than vitamin E at fighting free radicals that can cause skin damage and wrinkling. So to make a cup of green tea, boil some water and steep a green tea bag in the cup of water for one to three minutes. I like to add a squeeze of lemon juice to improve on the health benefits because the lemon juice make the antioxidants more available for your body to absorb.
