Green Tea for Stronger Bones

Over 10 million Americans suffer from osteoporoses, and unfortunately many people think it is an unavoidable side effect of getting older. However, studies are proving that sipping green tea can help. In addition to helping the fight against cancer and heart disease, green tea can also strengthen your bones. You may have heard of EGCG (epigallocatechin) which is a main competent of green tea. It is this active ingredient that can strengthen your bones while slowing down the breakdown process.[1]

Pick up some green tea at your grocery store and enjoy a soothing cup in the morning or at night. Add some sprigs of mint and a squeeze of lemon for some delicious all-natural flavoring.

Express your love today!
