Green Tea Tidbit

A new study from Japan was published this week showing that green tea may help with stress. The study found that drinking green tea may reduce psychological stress by as much as 20 percent. In this study of 42,093 Japanese individuals, 6.6% suffered from psychological stress. In those individuals suffering from stress, green tea consumption improved psychological well-being.

Yes, tea de-stresses its drinkers. That's because it has theanine to balance of the theine (caffeine.) So it soothes while it energizes. Coffee, on the other hand, causes what psychologists call the stress response in people. Ouch.
