Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. Studies have found that green tea may help with cancer, heart disease, and diabetes; encourage weight loss; lower cholesterol; and bring about mental alertness. Not only does drinking green tea offer us great health benefits, but it is a great alternative to coffee drinking because it has less caffeine.
