Is Green Tea The Ultimate Diet Hack?
We've all got that one friend who swears by their Green Tea.
A lot of the time we'll brush it off as a simple flavour preference...
Or maybe they just aren't in the mood for the caffeine punch-in-the-face of a double long mac.
But what if they're onto something?
Whether it be conscious or subconscious, those who are drawn to green tea and integrate it regularly into their lifestyle probably do this for more than just the taste.
(Let's be honest, the flavour can't be the main selling point... right?)
Could the ultimate health supplement be as simple as a few cups of tea a day?
Sounds a little too good to be true, doesn't it?
Green Tea is a substance which needs very little introduction.
The tea leaves have been used for over three millenniums in China as a medicine, but it wasn't until much later that the leaves were used in the form of a drink.
The Healthiest Beverage On The Planet
Rich in natural antioxidants and nutrients, the powerful effect on the body extends to not only mental effects such as increased cognition and alertness, but also to fat burning, physical performance and even life longevity.
Green tea is loaded with polyphenols, powerful antioxidants exclusive to Green Tea, which are utilised all over the world for their amazing medicinal properties. The most studied of these is "Epigallocetechin Gallate"(EGCG) which has even been used to treat various diseases across the globe!

Let's take a look at just 3 of the amazing benefits of Green Tea
1. Super-Charge Your Brain
While coffee certainly does the job at keeping us awake, we all know it definitely doesn't make us much smarter.
A cup of joe will fight fatigue, keep us awake at the wheel and make us more alert to our surroundings, but the buck stops there.
Green Tea on the other hand, goes much deeper into cognitive function.
Green Tea contains a natural combination of caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine. This brain cocktail provides the perfect synergy, with L-Theanine increasing the activity of the anti-anxiety and relaxing GABA neurotransmitter, which allows for the increase of Alpha Brain Waves, responsible for focus and creativity.
This perfect synergy allows for focused, attentive alertness over the jitters and hype of a pure high dose of caffeine!

2. Burn Fat, Train Hard.
Ever noticed that Green Tea is included in just about every fat burner under the sun?
Well, there's a damn good reason.
Green Tea has been found to increase fat burning and boost the metabolic rate in humans (study, study). Even better, Green Tea has been found to significantly increase fat oxidation, meaning that it may even selectively burn fat.
Plus with the additional combination of caffeine and L-Theanine, this makes Green Tea the perfect energy catalyst, to provide sustained and focused mental fuel to power through exercise!

3. Live Happy, Live Long
In a study of over 40,000 Japanese adults who drank green tea, it was found that those who consumed the most (5 cups or more per day) were significantly less likely to die during an 11 year period.
Sounds a little morbid, right? But it all adds up!
Green Tea's fat burning properties reduce the risk of obesity...
Antioxidants lower cholesterol (study) decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease - such as heart attack or stroke, by up to 31%...
Plus the additional benefits of reducing blood sugar lowers the risk of developing Type II Diabetes (Again, a Japanese study has proven that those who drank the most green tea had a 42% lower chance of developing the disease)
With additional studies showing Green Tea's polyphenols killing bacteria and even protecting the brain in old age to potentially prevent neurodegenerative diseases, the increased life expectancy makes sense!
To reap the amazing benefits of Green Tea, you'll have to drink a little more than a cup here and there...
Actually, you'd need to do more than even replacing your daily coffees with a cup of tea.
To receive the optimal health benefits of Green Tea, you'd have to drink a minimum of 5, up to 10 or more cups, each and every single day.
