What are the Benefits of Drinking Organic Japanese Green Tea? I drink tea all the time. I used to drink coffee, but it only stressed me out. I didn’t like the feeling of ‘impending doom’ following me around over my head all day long. I had to also put sugar and cream in it. I didn’t like drinking it black. I really did love coffee, but it didn’t love me back. It was a one way relationship of the kind that never works out.
I also had heart palpitations. No good! It also made me feel hungry. It was really acidic on my system. So, one day I decided to quit. But, it wasn’t all that easy. I slept a lot, got depressed and had headaches for almost a month. Coffee for me, was very addicting and hard to get off of. That is, until I met my new improved love ‘Japanese Green Tea’, which became my new energy drink!
‘Tea, next to water is the cheapest beverage humans consume. Drinking the beverage tea has been considered a health-promoting habit since ancient times. The modern medicinal research is providing a scientific basis for this belief. The evidence supporting the health benefits of tea drinking grows stronger with each new study that is published in the scientific literature [1 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4055352/]’.
Back to coffee. I felt it plugged my arteries. I don’t think the sugar and cream helped in that respect. I also think it killed the friendly bacteria in my gut, leading to leaky gut. Coffee was a trigger for my inflammation.
Tea, at least the green Japanese tea is not that way. Drinking coffee also constipated me. There were just too many things gone wrong with drinking coffee. Now, tea was another story. More things right about it than wrong.
I first tried Chinese green tea, but I felt it was too contaminated with heavy metals. It was supposedly organic, but that doesn’t stop the heavy metals like lead. Same as organic rice. Still arsenic in it. I could taste a tinny flavor on my tongue when I drank it, so I made the switch for good, to Japanese. I purchase my tea from Shizentea.com.
