Drink some tea! It is good for you.

Here is a tip on what kind of tea is best.

Unlike black tea, green tea is not fermented, so its active ingredients are not changed. Green tea has polyphenols which is a potent antioxidant that appears to help with various cancers. Green tea is also given credit toward regulating blood glucose levels, lowering cholesterol levels and even helping promote weight loss.

The polyphenols in green tea can also stimulate the production of immune system cells. studies in both humans and animals suggest that green tea may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, promote oral health, lower blood pressure, protects the nervous system and has antibacterial and antiviral properties.

There are 2 classes of micronutrients, vitamins and minerals. Vitamins are complex and organic, serving primarily as coenzymes or regulators of body metabolism.

Minerals are simple elements with important roles in both structure and function of the body.
