Drinking green tea on a daily basis could be the key to increasing and improving your lifespan.
Every first month of the year, people make a list of all the things they want to do (new year resolutions). This time, Business Insider Sub Saharan Africa is recommending adding drinking green tea to this list.
For one, it contains natural antioxidants and critical vitamins that are great for your body. It also improves your metabolism. But the main reason to add this in your to-do list is due to how it affects one’s lifespan.
Recent research conducted by Dr Shinichi Kuriyama from theTohoku University School of Public Policy and published in The Journal of the American Medical Association has discovered that green tea is so powerful that it can actually extend one’s life expectancy.
After studying 40,530 adults, ranging in age from 40 to 79, for up to 11 years, the doctor concluded that “the difference in Green Tea consumption might help explain why the Japanese age-adjusted rate of mortality due to Heart Disease and Stroke is about 30 per cent lower than that of the United States.”
Following the results of this extensive research, WorldLifeExpentency.com has declared green tea a Life Expectancy Super Food.
