Ingredient Digest: Benefits of Green Tea
Tea might be by far the most popular drink in the world after water. And it's the healthiest go-to office drink option too!
Bored? Get some tea. Tired? Tea should help. Stressed? Definitely need a cuppa.
The Jar Healthy Vending has just as many options for the tea break as are needed: red, green, black, mate... Let's have a quick look into The Jar vault before diving into the benefits of universally accepted healthy drink - green tea.
Tea, except for the herbal one, is made from the leaves of the Chinese camellia bush.
The type of tea depends on the oxidation state of the leaves - green tea is not fermented, and black tea is processed from two weeks to a month.
Both types are good for health, but contain different amounts of vitamins and minerals and have different healing properties.
Alright, now for some persuasion. Why should you be choosing green tea (for example ChariTea from The Jar Healthy Vending) for your office break drink next time? Here are a few reasons:
As a traditional Indian and Chinese medicine it slows down ageing and improves the condition of skin, nails and hair.
Stimulates brain function softer and safer than coffee.
Helps normalize weight.

Contains antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
On top of everything else, based on the data collected in Japan as a part of the 11 year long experiment among people aged 40-79 years, scientists there was a study conducted in the US which proved that there is the link between green tea consumption and longevity.
It turned out that those who drank five or more cups of green tea a day, the mortality rate decreased: in general - by 23% in women, by 12% in men; from diseases of the heart and blood vessels - by 31% in women, by 22% in men; from stroke - by 42% in women, 35% in men.
Green tea has many health benefits that have been proven by scientists and doctors.
But what is especially interesting and valuable about green tea during the working hours is its unique ability to activate brain activity due to caffeine, which increases the concentration of the hormone of happiness - dopamine.
At the same time, it reduces the production of adenosine, a substance that slows down the reactions of the nervous system. It affects brain activity, memory, attention and mood. Green tea contains less caffeine than black tea or coffee. In doing so, it also activates the brain, and the stimulating effect is softer and lasts longer than coffee.
Healthy eating and nutritious food help promote better overall wellbeing, greater energy levels, improved concentration and better performance, they also prevent health issues in the future.
