White Rock Tea Expert – Maureen Coroliuc

Green Tea

January is a great month to give your body a gentle detoxification after the holiday season.

The tea type I would recommend is green tea, as it aids in detoxification of the liver and kidneys and aids in some weight reduction.

Green tea is made from unoxidized leaves and is one of the less processed types of tea.

Green tea is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks and contains one of the highest amounts of antioxidants of any tea. Natural chemicals called polyphenols

in tea are what are thought to provide its  anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects. Green tea is approximately 20-45 percent polyphenols by weight, of which 60-80 percent are catechins such as EGCG. Catechins are antioxidants that are said to help prevent cell damage.
