Beverage Basics 1
Many people are grabbing healthy beverages like green tea. Tea contains about 1/3 of the caffeine as coffee, so it’s great for a pick-me-up. But, it also contains other compounds that regulate the caffeine, decreasing the crash that follows a caffeine high from coffee. It also contains antioxidants. In fact, green tea was found to decrease risk of breast cancer. It’s also good for a healthy liver, and that means a healthy hormonal balance. Black tea also contains powerful antioxidants. Because of the caffeine, many doctors recommend drinking a glass of water with your tea, as caffeine is a diuretic. This means that if you don’t have a cup of water for every cup of tea or coffee, you are dehydrated.
