If you read my blog on even a small basis then I think you must know how much I love green tea. I drink about 5 cups a day minimum and enjoy all the potential benefits such as cancer fighting, and weight loss . Recently I stumbled upon this information on Yahoo about other benefits of green tea that go beyond just the amazing things it can do for our bodies.
Bet You Did Not Know This About Green Tea!
-It’s great for teeth: Green tea has fluoride in it, making it a superstar for keeping gums and teeth healthy. Green tea can even be used as a mouthwash to maintain breath.
-It’s a room deodorizer: Green tea leaves have traditionally been used to naturally absorb odors in a room. Place tea leaves in a bowl to help absorb unpleasant odors or leave some in the fridge in place of baking soda.
- It’s good for the bones: Naturally high in minerals, green tea aids in strong bone density, which is important for maintaining good posture.
-It can soothe skin: Spent a little too much time in the sun? Use the naturally calming properties of green tea to soothe sunburned skin. Place green tea in a spray bottle and mist on sunburned areas for all-natural relief. Because it has anti-bacterial qualities, green tea can also be used as an antiseptic to spray on skin blemishes or irritations.
- It’s good for the feet: Soaking tired feet in green tea can prevent unpleasant fungal infections.
If you have not considered green tea before, you may just want to think about it now!
