  • There's a perception about green tea around that its bad in taste or only sick or old people drink it.

  • But the fact of the matter is, green tea is one of the most underrated drinks available on the market.

  • There are a few reasons why you'll want to start sipping on this green gold daily.

  • It's one thing when your drink of choice is full of antioxidants, but what if it contained catechins, which promote cellular health, improved energy, and even helped you lose weight, as well as polyphenols that can slow the aging process?

  • You'd want to drink it up, wouldn't you?

  • That's how amazing green tea is.

  • That's not the only reason to drink green tea, though.

  • The combination of caffeine and L-theanine, a compound in green tea, help to make you smarter.

  • L-theanine increases the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which has an anti-anxiety effect.

  • It also increases dopamine and the production of alpha waves in the brain, which is a brain wave state associated with creativity and insight.

  • Caffeine is also a mild stimulant which can improve your memory and energy levels.

  • As if that weren't enough to convince you to drink green tea every day, the stuff also increases your body's fat metabolism by as much as 17%.

  • That's right, less time on the treadmill, more time reading your favorite book while sipping on a cup of tea, and you still get to enjoy a smaller pant size.

  • Finally, the plant compounds in green tea help to reduce breast, colorectal, and prostate cancer by up to 50%.

  • Wow!

  • We're pretty sure your diet soda can't do any of that.

  • Green tea is not just for the old or sick; green tea should be had by everyone.

  • Compromising health to be cool is not a great idea; you have to be healthy to stay cool.
