Taste buds change when going through cancer treatment. Also, nutrition becomes a key factor when making healing choices. At the top of the list for nutiritional beverages is Green Tea. I know for myself, coffee just didn’t taste right anymore, so I did gravitate to teas for taste, but more importantly for health reasons. One of my favorites is Macha Tea.
Research has indicated that the health benefits of drinking green tea are:
- reduced risk of esophageal cancer
- inhibited growth of cancer cells as a result of a compound in green tea
- lowered total cholesterol levels, as well as improved ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.
For those who still want their caffeine fix without the coffee, green tea is an ideal option. It provides the caffeine, although at a much lower dose than coffee, while one reaps the health benefits listed above.
So, slow down and enjoy a wonderful cup of green tea.
