GREEN TEA

Green Tea has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy. It contains a powerful anti-oxidant that is believed to be beneficial in cancer treatment. While it has been used as a cancer preventative it is also used to inhibit the spread of cancer. It helps to enhance the effects of chemotherapy while decreasing the side effects. It has been found to be especially useful in treating colon and rectal cancers.

Green Tea prevents cellular damage which reduces or eliminates cancer, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, builds the immune and cardiovascular systems and can aid in weight loss. It is used in the treatment of hair loss and to stimulate new hair growth.

Green Tea is also used to reduce stress. One of the main antioxidants in green tea is the amino acid L-Theanine.  L-Theanine can increase levels of GABA, a brain chemical known for its calming effects, and dopamine, which can elevate the mood. L-Theanine is non-drowsy, and may even increase mental focus and concentration as it relieves stress.
