Green Tea

I am a coffee drinker! I have grown to like certain teas but don't drink them very often. 3-4 cups of green tea a day is recommended as a natural anti-cancer fighter. I found this pomegranate green tea at World Market. They carry the Republic of Tea brands and have quite a large selection. While it is not quite as good as a pomegranate martini it is pretty tasty!
Green tea is high in the antioxidant EGCG (epigallocatechin-3- gallate) which helps prevent the body’s cells from becoming damaged and prematurely aged. Studies have suggested that the combination of green tea and EGCG may also be beneficial by providing protection against certain types of cancers, including breast cancer.
