Green Tea Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Inflammation is the body’s immediate reaction to distress. If you cut your finger, you will probably notice that very quickly, the area around the cut swells up and turns red. This response is inflammation and is your body’s way of making sure that the wound doesn’t become infected.
While inflammation can be beneficial in the short-term, many of us experience chronic inflammation due to poor diet and lifestyle. Swelling is connected to many different diseases, from diabetes to heart disease to cancer. But green tea has properties that are proven to reduce inflammation, thereby improving overall health and well-being.
