Tea Time by Mike Scialabba - Newsletter Article!
Here is an article from todays newsletter:
Take a break, sit down, and relax for a minute. Sip on a nice hot cup of tea, and maybe read the paper. Or you can just rip your car up to the drive through of the nearest coffee stand, order up a big fat green tea, and roar off at a million miles a minute listening to death metal, plotting your next dead-lift PR. Whatever works. Just as long as you take some time for Tea!
Tea? Isn't that a little foo foo? Not unless you consider low stress, low cholesterol, increased metabolism, decreased chances of heart disease and cancer foo foo.
High stress, high cholesterol, heart disease and cancer are all well known to every single adult throughout the world. If you could take one pill per day and decrease your chance of having one or all of these ailments would you do it? I would. There is no pill that claims to cover all of these, but there is green tea! Now if you drink one cup of green tea per day are you guaranteed to not get stressed, never have high cholesterol, prevent heart disease and cancer? No, probably not, but if you can reduce your chances, you should!
Come on, this cup of green tea has 'relax' written all over it!
What's in it?
Green Tea is high in:
Antioxidants – compounds that stabilize free radicals and aid in the prevention of cell damage
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) – a major catechin thought to inhibit destructive chemical reactions in our bodies that may lead to disease.
Theanine – an amino acid that is said to promote a sense of relaxation without the drowsiness.
Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, B2, and B6, Vitamin C and Vitamin K.
Caffeine – 1 cup provides about 30mg, dramatically less than 1 cup of coffee, but just enough to slightly stimulate the mind!
There are too many pollutants, byproducts, and toxins moving into our bodies without our control, and unless we take the time to consume the things we need, our bodies and minds will suffer the consequence.
Take some time for Tea.
