Did the Memorial Day festivities wear you out?

Recovering from the holiday can call for finding desperate measures just to get the energy needed to power through the day. If you’re tired of downing cups of coffee, chugging energy drinks, or resorting to elaborate remedies, keep it simple with one tip: Green tea!

Green tea is high in polyphenols, which are potent antioxidants that reduce inflammation and free radicals that damage in the body. This will help your body recover more quickly so that you can have the energy you need to enjoy the things you want to do.

Polyphenols also give tea its bitter flavor. Because green tea leaves are young and haven’t been oxidized, green tea has up to 40 percent polyphenols, while black tea contains only about 10 percent. Green tea also contains catechins which are more powerful than vitamins C and E. Plus, if you drink up you can reduce your risk for several cancers including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder.
