Some believe that green tea is the healthiest beverage on the planet.
Clean water and a glass of green juice would place ahead in a race, but green tea is definitely up there, full of health benefits that when paired with a healthy diet and lifestyle, may promote a long and healthy life.
The believed benefits of green tea are vast, some of which include increasing brain function, burning fat, improving physical performance, lowering the risk of cancer, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, infections and heart disease.
Sounds great, right? You would want to start drinking more green tea – or perhaps iced green tea during the summer.
But how can you make green tea even lighter, more refreshing and even more healthy?
By making green tea lemonade.
By adding ginger, you add the anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal disease-fighting magical benefits of ginger.
Adding a slight bit of honey doesn’t only give you a sweeter taste, you also get extra benefits from honey, including boosting your immune system, improving allergy symptoms and boosting your memory.
The last trick is lemon, which aids your immune system and digestion.
Mixing all this together, you get a magical detoxifying green tea lemonade for long life.
