Drink Green Tea
Green tea’s antioxidant compounds have been linked to slower cancer growth, improved blood flow, weight loss, improved liver function, and reduced rates of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. But black tea’s no slouch in the health department either. It’s been shown to reduce stroke risk and lung damage from smoking. But whether you knock back a cup a week or several a day, you’re doing your body a favor.
Note: I make a large pot of green tea, cool it, and put it in the fridge with a few slices of lemon. It makes great iced tea to cool off the hot south Texas days.
