Greenleaf Jasmine Green Tea is a perfect healthy green tea that helps you start your day on the right note.
Health Benefits of Greenleaf Jasmine Black Tea
1. Boosts Energy
As mentioned, jasmine tea uses a true tea such as green, black or white as a base. True teas are teas that are made using the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, which naturally contains caffeine.
The caffeine content of jasmine tea can thus vary depending on which true tea is used as a base, although in general green tea is most common. A cup of green tea contains around 35 mg of caffeine while a cup of coffee contains about 95 mg.
Switching from coffee to jasmine tea can lower your caffeine intake while still giving you that extra boost to make it through the day. The caffeine in jasmine tea can help you focus better and stay alert.
2. Weight Loss Aid
Losing weight can be hard, so having a little extra support on your side can make all the difference. Jasmine tea has been shown to aid in weight loss by speeding up metabolism thanks to its use of green tea leaves. A faster metabolism means your body can process nutrients and macronutrients (like fat and protein) quicker, leading to weight loss.
A Japanese study published in 2010 showed that people who regularly consume green tea can have a higher resting metabolic rate than those who didn’t. That means you can burn more calories and fat, even when you aren’t working out.
Jasmine tea is a naturally low-calorie beverage so you can drink up without worrying about packing on the pounds. Adding sugar or honey to your tea can increase the amount of calories, so use sparingly.
3. May Prevent Cancer
Since cancer is a common ailment in modern society, the focus on prevention has increased as well. Fortunately, there is scientific evidence that drinking jasmine tea may help to prevent cancer by targeting free radicals and many more.
