THIRSTY THURSDAY.... WITH A DIFFERENCE
Did you know...
Green tea is a fantastic antioxidant!...it is filled with powerful protective flavanoids called EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate to all you scientists out there). Antioxidants help to rid the body of free radicals, which, if left unchecked can damage our DNA and increase the likelihood of heart disease, degenerative disorders, inflammatory conditions and cancer!
Interestingly, EGCG is not an essential nutrient! which means if you don't eat a varied diet you could go your whole life without having any! That would be a real shame... so drink up!
