A cup full of healthy benefits

Green tea is a powerful antioxidant. It has been proven to reduce the risk of heart disease, to lower blood pressure, and to help even out the spike in blood sugar that comes from eating foods that are high on the glycemic index.

Nutritionist Dina Khader discusses the benefits of drinking green tea.

She describes the different kinds of green tea, how green tea bolsters good health, and how to properly brew a cup of green tea.

Note: Since the Fukushima power plant disaster, there has been concern about radiation levels in green tea. Research before you buy.
