Did you know, Tea is the world’s most popular drink, next to water? Everyone on the planet, I’m sure, has heard of Green Tea; probably because it’s touted the most by retailers, but for good reason. It has been implicated to benefiting almost every organ system in the body. It is cardio-protective, neuro-protective, liver-protective, anti-artherogenic, anti-diabetic, anti-obesity and beneficial for blood vessel health.
The taste is amazing, too, whether hot or cold. Green Tea is the least processed and has the highest amount of polyphenols over other Teas. But have you ever thought to expand your Tea repertoire? There are many types of Tea on the market today with a wide range of flavors within every type and a multitude of unique preventative health benefits.
Mass-produced Tea is grown on large plantations in more than 30 countries, but the four biggest producers are China, India, Kenya and Sri Lanka.
The Camellia Sinensis or the Tea plant is faithfully described as being a powerful medicine, encouraging good health and longevity, as well as keeping the mind alert and sharp and treating many ailments, from indigestion to the common cold.
In addition to Green Tea, my favorites are Black Tea, White Tea, Oolong Tea and Pu’erh Tea.

Tea is good for women and men, alike, but since this is the Father’s Day issue, I want to expound on how tea can be beneficial to our wonderful fathers.
As men age, their prostates enlarge and in order to maintain good prostate health you must implement healthy lifestyle habits. Drinking Green Tea is an all-natural way to promote better health, even if you already have symptoms or a diagnosis of a problem.
Green Tea has catechins; the most potent one being EGCG, which boosts sexual performance, increases resting metabolism and stimulates fat burning. Because caffeine can irritate the prostate and the bladder, though, opt for a caffeine-free version.
So, give your father a special gift this year and the rest of his years to come; the gift of Green Tea and the gift of a longer life.
