HerbaGreen Tea

Green tea without caffeine

This herbal green tea is caffeine free. Small doses of caffeine may sometimes be good because it keeps you alert. Two to three cups of coffee or tea in a day may be a safe amount of caffeine intake but fifteen cups of the strongest green tea, which is the equivalent of one dose of HerbaGreen Tea, can get  a  lot of caffeine in your body which could be counter productive for your health.

With this herbal green tea, you get the benefit of approximately 15 cups of green tea without the caffeine.

 You need not worry of the bad effects of caffeine because the process of manufacturing this herbal green tea eliminates the caffeine content of the tea leaves.

Green tea without calories

You can get the calories you need from your diet.  Exceeding your calorie requirements will only be converted into fats which weight watchers try to avoid. You don't get extra calories from this Herbal Green Tea because it doesn't contain any.

For weight loss management

A dose of this herbal green tea during or right after meals can help in weight control because it slows down or may restrict carbohydrate absorption. This effectivity lasts for about an hour after meals. So if you're going to use this herbal green tea for weight control, timing is important.

Green tea also stimulates thermogenesis which is a process that increases fat oxidation and energy expenditure. It makes your body burn calories much faster.

For maintaining healthy cells and disease prevention

Our body's cells may be damaged when free radical chain reactions occur. One dose of this herbal green tea contains 100 mg of polyphenols, which are antioxidants. It protects your cells from damage done by free radical chain reactions. Healthy cells  would make it difficult for disease to set in. Disease prevention is better than treating a disease when it has already began.

Antioxidants

The onset of many diseases are caused by unhealthy cells damaged or deformed by oxidative stress caused by free radical chain reactions. To help protect our cells from these damages, our bodies must be equipped with antioxidants to stop free radical chain reactions.

Our body has its own antioxidant defenses

Yes indeed, our body is prepared to neutralize or scavenge harmful free radicals but because of:
  • Pollution in our industrialized environment
  • Eating habits
  • Physical activities
  • Smoking
  • Exposure from second hand smoke
  • Exposure from radiation

our 'built-in' antioxidants may become depleted. Therefore the need for extra antioxidants may be wise to consider. Preventing disease before it gains power over our bodies is better than treating it when it is already present.

 

A healthful drink sweetened with natural herbs

This herbal tea is sweetened with natural non caloric sweeteners and is available in three delicious flavors:

  • Original
  • Heavenly Honey Lemon
  • Mandarin Mango Swirl

No hassle preparations

All you need is a glass of water, hot or cold. No boiling of leaves nor dipping tea bags in hot water. You have no reason to skip your daily dose because you can take it anywhere you go, just tuck it in your bag.

Green tea contains theanine

Theanine is an amino acid which can be found almost exclusively in tea (camellia sinensis). It increases the alpha brain wave activity of our brain which is responsible for the calming effect and relaxed state of our mind but at the same time makes us more alert. The effect lasts for three to four hours.
