Green Tea Good for the GUT!

We have always known that green tea is one of the best medicinal foods - lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, aids digestion, speeds up metabolism and is a powerful antioxidant.
Now researchers at the National Cancer Center in Tokyo concluded that green tea’s antioxidants may protect against gastric cancer and may include compounds that fight bacteria that have been linked to stomach cancer. The studies followed more than 219,000 men and women 40 years and older, who were followed between 7 and 11 years. Overall, about four in five of the participants reported drinking green tea daily, with about one-third drinking five or more cups per day.

Make a cup of green tea a part of your day and experience the health benefits!
