Fall in Love at First Sip - Magic Hour

Fall in Love at First Sip

Posted by Magic Hour on

We're back to share the wonderful health qualities of tea with you. As you surely know, Magic Hour is focused on nourishing the body and soul, we're beyond excited to offer such rejuvenating, wholesome blends and want to shout their fascinating benefits from the rooftops!

This week we are immersed with green tea - we're busy preparing Goddess Green and can't stop sipping Almond Matcha - this one's quickly becoming a cult-classic!

Well-known for its incredible medicinal properties, green tea is a truly miraculous beverage. It is obtained from the same plant as other types of tea, but doesn't undergo the withering and oxidation process as black or oolong varieties, hence its more subtle color and plentiful health benefits!

Here are 5 reasons why drinking green tea is a great habit:

1. Rich in antioxidants: because it's less processed than black tea, green tea can contain much more polyphenols like catechin - a natural antioxidant capable of preventing cell damage and reducing the formation of free radicals. Here's to staying forever young!

2. May lower the risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease: the same polyphenols can have a protective influence on neurons, shielding your mind from degenerative conditions. On top of that, an amino acid called L-theanine is able to cross the brain-blood barrier and smoothly deliver gentle amounts of caffeine for long-term mental improvements. Forever young and forever sharp!

3. Antibacterial: catechin compounds may have significant anti-inflammatory properties, killing bacteria and stopping certain viruses from hatching. That also means green tea can promote better dental health, prevent cavities and freshen the breath!

4. Works against diabetes: clinical studies found that green tea can support insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar levels, thereby decreasing the risk of type 2 diabetes. What an easy and delicious way to help yourself against yet another serious condition!

5. Loves your heart: those superhero polyphenols may successfully protect you from cardiovascular diseases as well! By lowering the "bad" cholesterol and increasing antioxidants in the blood, green tea can forestall strokes and heart failures. Keep the love pump safe!

Magic Hour officially declares green tea the drink of the divine!

Steep, sip & stay healthy with us!
