Green Tea - student project

  1. 1. My Story Rachael Hall
  2. 2. Green Tea I never liked hot tea or any type hot drink really until I started working at a coffee shop. Employees working there get free drinks all day, but I didn’t have many healthy options considering I don’t drink coffee and I don’t like soda regularly. Then I came across research that declared green tea had an extremely large amount of antioxidants, cancer fighting nutrients, and other benefits for your health. I decided to give it a try and after awhile I got used to the drink, and can sweeten it according to my taste. This is a great alternative to the sugary drinks available at a coffee shop, and it’s always available.
  3. 3. How it’s Used The green tea I use is Lipton Green Tea, a well known brand that surprisingly has a high amount of the nutrition value. It comes in a tea bag that’s placed in a hot water cup where boiled water is poured into and mixed. This way you directly get all the nutrients. To sweeten it up you can add honey, and some add sugar.
  4. 4. Health Benefits Heath benefits include powerful antioxidants to improve health and the immune system (EGCG being one example. It also has cancer fighting antioxidants, bioactive compounds, and the caffeine is a trigger for neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine. It can boost the metabolic rate and fat oxidization, catechins in the tea may inhibit growth of bacteria or some viruses, and lower LDL cholesterol levels for heart health. Overall, Green Tea can help benefit your health in all parts of the body, without having any dangerous side effects because of it’s a natural product.
