23. Green Tea
Green Tea is especially popular in Asian countries and has an unbelievable amount of health benefits for those that drink it regularly.
A Japanese study of over 40,000 participants concluded that those who drank multiple cups of green tea had a 26% lower risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke compared to those that didn’t. And, a separate Japanese study showed that the more green tea participants drank, the longer the lived overall.
Meanwhile, it can help you to lose weight too. Green tea helps to boost your metabolism and speed up fat burning. So, if you’re trying to lose weight to get a bit healthier – swapping to green tea could help you along.
Remarkably, green tea has also been proven to stop our brains from aging and protect us from diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinsons, by protecting the brain’s neurons. Green tea contains caffeine. So maybe swap your morning coffee or tea with a couple of cups of green tea.
