Prepare 1 cup of green tea and add lemon juice.
Green tea is not only delicious but is renowned for its health-promoting properties. These have been linked to hits high concentration of catechin phytonutrients, which have a wide variety of protetive benefits, many related to their potent ability to fight free radicals. Adding 1 tsp lemon juice per cup of green tea not only gives it a refreshing taste but additional health benefits; it is both cleansing and energizing.
Research on the protective value of antioxidant catechins has found that less than 20% survive digestion. But by adding the lemon juice you can absorb 13 times more of the catechins due to the high concentration of vitamin C in the lemon juice. The catechins in ready-to-drink bottles of green tea have been found to be ineffecive.
If you're sensative to caffeine, you can drink decaffeinated green tea.
