Green tea (Camellia sinensis) is one of nature’s natural detox herbs. It is alkalising so will help anybody on an acidic diet (coffee, processed foods, meat… basically all the things we like).
Green tea is made from un-oxidized leaves and is not allowed to ferment like black tea so therefore contains lots of antioxidants and beneficial polyphenols.
It has had thousands of years of empirical use in traditional Chinese and Aryudvedic herbal traditions and has been used by those traditions to heal wounds, aid digestion, improve heart and mental well-being as well as help with weight loss and help detox the body.
Catechins in green tea have been found to have anti-inflammatory activity, anti-cancer and anti-aging properties among others
High doses of caffeine and other stimulating substances found in coffee can cause our body to make more stress hormones
. L-theanine, the relaxing amino acid in green tea (and our Vitamin B complex) has been found to have a relaxing effect on the mind, reduce anxiety, and help with focus and concentration.
