Green tea has been quite the hero over the last decade in its popularity to help with weight loss due to the compound it contains known as EGCG. It’s also a great remedy for reducing your caffeine intake since green tea is much lower than black tea, coffee, or sugary energy drinks that are spiked with high doses of caffeine which can lead to adrenal fatigue and caffeine dependence. But this humble plant is much more beneficial than most of us realize. Aside from reduced caffeine intake and weight loss, there are many other ways you can benefit from using green tea.
So, let’s take a look at five simple ways you can use green tea in your home for healing and then let us know if you have a favorite way that we didn’t mention here!
Did you know drinking just three cups of green tea a day when you’re sick can dramatically help with natural healing during a cold or even the flu? Though it’s not a cure-all, consuming several cups a day of green tea provides immune-boosting properties to the body along with antioxidants it needs to fight infections and free radicals. Green tea also contains many trace minerals and chlorophyll that support the body and aid in natural cleansing. Lastly, it can be mixed with some ginger root, lemon, cayenne, and a little stevia to make a hot drink that is soothing to the throat and fights infection even further. Combined with vitamin C, your cold or even symptoms of the flu will be much better in no time!
