Green tea can be prepared at home easily by steeping the tea leaves in hot water for 2 min. Tea leaves are not usual leaves but green tea leaves that have not been processed. you can also add other herbs such as tulsi leaves, ginger or mint leaves as per your desire.

Stay healthy

cancer
According to the National Cancer Institute, the polyphenols in tea have been shown to decrease tumor growth in laboratory and animal studies and may protect against damage caused by ultraviolet UVB radiation.

green tea in a cup
Green tea is becoming increasingly popular in the US.
In countries where green tea consumption is high, cancer rates tend to be lower, but it is impossible to know for sure whether it is the green tea that prevents cancer in these specific populations or other lifestyle factors.

One large-scale clinical study compared green tea drinkers with non-drinkers and found that those who drank the most tea were less likely to develop pancreatic cancer, particularly women, who were 50% less likely to develop the disease.

Studies have also shown the positive impacts of green tea on breast, bladder, ovarian, colorectal, esophageal, lung, prostate, skin and stomach cancer.

Researchers believe that it is the high level of polyphenols in tea that help kill cancerous cells and stop them from growing, however the exact mechanisms by which tea interacts with cancerous cells is unknown.

Other studies have shown a lack of preventative effects of tea on cancer. The amount of tea required for cancer-preventive effects has also varied widely in studies - from 2 to 10 cups per day.

In 2005, the FDA stated that "there is no credible evidence to support qualified health claims for green tea consumption and a reduced risk of gastric, lung, colon/rectal, esophageal, pancreatic, ovarian, and combined cancers."

2) Heart Disease
A 2006 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that green tea consumption is associated with reduced mortality due to all causes, including cardiovascular disease.

The participants who drank at least 5 cups of green tea per day had a significantly lower risk of dying (especially from cardiovascular disease) than those who drank less than one cup of tea per day.

Green tea contains catechins, polyphenolic compounds that are thought to exert numerous protective effects, particularly on the cardiovascular system.

3) Lower Cholesterol
An analysis of published studies in 2011 found that consuming green tea, either as a beverage or in capsule form, was linked to significant but modest reductions in total and LDL or "bad" cholesterol.

Another study found that consuming 10 cups of green tea per day can lower total cholesterol, however, consuming 4 cups or less had no effect on cholesterol levels.

4) Stroke
Drinking green tea or coffee on a regular basis is associated with a reduced risk of stroke, according to a study published in the journal Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.

Green tea is now regarded as the most healthy drink/. It provides immense health benefits. It is best for anti-ageing treatment. It revitalizes and energises without any harmful side effects. it also helps to reduce cholesterol levels so good for heart patients. It is also good for people with high sugar levels as it reduces blood sugar level. It is the best health drink.

There are many more health benefits besides those mentioned by you. Green tea is good for boosting immunity as it is rich in antioxidants. it also helps to reduce weight so good for people who are on weight loss program. It has high flouride so helps prevent tooth decay. It prevents thickening of arteries so good for heart patients. Besides these studies also show that it inhibits cancer cell growth.
