Superfood: Green Tea
Superfood: Green Tea According to an ancient Chinese proverb, it's "better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one"–and current health research backs up that claim. Green tea and green tea extracts are rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)–a powerful antioxidant that not only inhibits the growth of cancer cells but also kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. Green tea may also increase mental alertness, aid in weight loss, reduce LDL cholesterol, and protect the skin from sun damage. With all of these potential health benefits, why not give it a try?
