Looking for an easy way to switch up your morning routine? Although we aren’t ashamed to admit our love for coffee, new research shows there may be more than one reason to indulge in green tea – a delicious caffeine counterpart.
A recent study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that women who drink green tea are less likely to suffer from digestive cancers. The research determined that moderate tea consumption (about 3 times per week) led to a 17 percent deduction, while more frequent consumption (two to three cups per day) decreased the risk by 21 percent.
This is good news, especially for those of us who aren’t java fans. Another perk? Green tea is a great ingredient to use in some of our favorite spa treatments like facials and pedicures. It can even tighten the skin around your eyes for a quick boost after a long night!
