Health Benefits Of Drinking Green Tea Daily

Green tea boasts several health benefits and is considered as one of the world's healthiest drinks. Here are a few benefits of drinking green tea every day.

There are so many strong natural antioxidants (polyphenols) are present in green tea. These antioxidants will make green tea a better drink over coffee or black tea. Green tea also has very less caffeine content. Green tea benefits your hair, skin and also helps in weight loss. There is a long list of green tea benefits but drinking 1 cup a day would not help you. If you want benefits from green tea then you have to develop a habit of drinking 3-4 cups of green tea daily. Also, loose green tea leaves of higher quality is better over green tea bags.

Oral Health 

Along with the natural fluoride found in tea, polyphenols and catechins are associated with killing bacteria that cause tooth decay, bad breath, and gum disease-the number one cause for tooth loss. A study published this year by the European Journal of Nutrition found that consumption of one or more cups of green tea a day was significantly associated with decreasing the risk of tooth loss. Adding sugar, honey, or other sweeteners to tea however, may negate these benefits.


Numerous research has demonstrated that tea is beneficial in preventing cancer including prostate, pancreatic, breast, colorectal, esophageal, bladder, lung, and stomach. The catechins found in tea prevent cell mutation, deactivate certain carcinogens, and reduce the formation and growth of tumors. Drinking as many as four cups a day may be necessary to reap the anti-cancer benefits.

Heart Health

Tea consumption is also associated with a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. Research published by Harvard demonstrates that people who drink at least one cup of tea daily have a 44 percent lower risk of heart attack. Some animal studies have demonstrated that tea also lowers cholesterol levels.

Weight Loss

Green tea helps you to loss your body weight.  As mentioned before, tea features a natural anti-oxidant gift in it, called in catechin polyphenols. Scientists have known six totally different catechins in tea and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is one of them. EGCG increase the metabolism rate, and result in increasing the rate on which our body turns food into calories and helps in weight loss. Green tea reduces  blood fat and also reduce food cravings. Due to its drug properties, it eliminates excess water and thereby reduces excess body weight.


One on the major benefits of green tea is that it helps in reducing cholesterol. Today many people are facing problem of high cholesterol. Green tea contains tannins, which helps in reducing the bad cholesterol naturally. Tannins reduce the LDL (Low-density lipoproteins), which is known as bad cholesterol. Since green tea reduces the bad cholesterol so it also maintains a balance between good and bad cholesterol.
