Lemon Green Tea
Green Tea is widely associated with a number of health benefits. The naturally occurring antioxidants in green tea can also be boosted with the addition of Lemon, which is full of important nutrients.
Antioxidants are naturally occurring elements that protect your body's cells from damage from environmental toxins and free radicals. Green Tea is naturally high in flavanoids, particularly epigallocatechin gallate, also known as EGCG. According to Harward Health Publications, EGCG has been associated with a varsity of potential health benefits, including helping prevent Cancer and cerebrovascular diseases. According to Pursue University, lemon boosts the health benefits of green tea, as citrus juice makes green tea's anti-oxidants more readily available for your body. Catechins prefer an acidic rather than alkaline environment. As the tea passes from your stomach - acidic - to the increasingly alkaline environment of your small intestine, the catechins are broken down. Your body can absorb upto 6 times more catechins that it would otherwise by combining lemon juice with your Green Tea.
