I swaer I feal a lot better when I drink green tea.
Make it yourself with gren teabags and honey- just put 6 in a gallon jug and throw it in the fridge.
Add honey and for that citrus taste I discvered that a ‘sour’ mix (like for whiskey sour) is the tangiest and closest to purchased Green Tea
MY sinuses always clear up, I have a ton of energy and feel better when I drink it. And lost weight
You like the stuff, is that right? ;-)
“However, some human trials have found contradictory results.”
For crying out loud, make up your mind. I can’t stand green tea, but my wife makes me drink it all the time.
The way it’s going, I’ll be dead before they are sure it kept me alive. ;>)
I will go with a smile on my face knowing I gave the statisticians heartburn trying to spin my demise. ;-)
Dying healthy seems like such a waste. ;>)
LOL One minute you’re healthy ... the next, not so much.
And knowing your prostate is your one organ worth harvesting.
Green tea is also supposed to be a good anti-oxidant and, when taken 3x per day, is supposed to attack the ‘brown’ fat (belly fat).
Don’t overlook my diaphragm. It’s in great shape from all the laughs I get around here.
