Most teas contain antioxidants - which bind to oxygen free radicals - which, if left unbound can cause DNA mutations - which - if you accumulate enough of them, can cause cancer. When people talk about "detox" maybe this is what they mean. But 'detox' isn't a word that is really used by scientists as far as I'm aware - it's a phrase used by alternative people and quacks trying to peddle the latest herbal product.
Apart from this I'm not aware of anything magical about green tea in particular. Apart from the fact that, contrary to what many people believe, it does contain caffeine.
Try not to get caught up in the latest herbal/diet/exercise fad, would be my advice. A varied and balanced diet that matches your metabolic requirements is always preferable to drinking gallons of 'this' or eating kilos of 'that'.
All the best :)
Green tea is not herbal tea. Herbal tea is made from just any old plant you throw in hot water and almost always has no caffeine. Green tea is made from an actual tea plant. Real teas have caffeine.
I don't know if its good for you but I love hot green tea with honey!
It's the shiz.com. Boosts metabolism, helps destroy free radicals in the body, anti aging...I mean have you seen those old Chinese guys do kung fu? They are practically 100 years old, can take on a group of ninjas single-handedly, and can walk on the tops of trees.
I'll have what they're having.
soccer and softball !
