To cope up with emotional problems like stress, depression and anxiety during the cold season but also to develop and strengthen a healthy body, green tea is highly recommended.
Green tea contains numerous polyphenols which grant high antioxidant properties. Due to these properties, green tea has protective effects against cardiovascular diseases, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, seasonal diseases, Alzheimer and Parkinson and against aging also.
During the cold winter, the green tea helps you find the emotional equilibrium which is at high risk during this time of the year when the lack of sunlight and the cold can drag you to a continuous state of stress, depression and nervousness.
The more tea you drink, the less you feel stressed. Scientists have reached this conclusion after studying over 42.000 persons with age over 40s. Together with the disappearance of the stress effects, the pneumonia and depression risk is diminished to about 45%.
Against flu and cold green tea effect are even stronger. Polyphenols and flavonoids contained, strengthen the immune system making it much more resistant against cold, flu and all types of infections.
Because on the market there are many varieties of green tea, always go for the Japanese ones (the most concentrated and efficient ones) since many do not deserve their name.
