Green tea is known to be healthy due to the tea's high content of various bioactive substances. The healthy bioactive substances include polyphenols, catechins and antioxidants, all of which can have a positive effect on health. VAKKA has had a project running with Copenhagen's Professionshøjskole ( where the students on the laboratory technician training, among other things, have had to examine VAKKA's organic tea for various nutrients.

Here are some of the main reasons why green tea is considered healthy:

Green tea is rich in antioxidants, and antioxidants help protect the body's cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules formed as a result of the body's normal metabolism as well as environmental factors such as pollution and radiation, and they can damage cells and contribute to a number of diseases and aging.

Several studies have suggested that green tea can have a beneficial effect on cardiovascular health. According to these studies, antioxidants can help reduce the risk of heart disease by protecting LDL cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol) from oxidation, improving blood pressure and reducing inflammation.

Some studies have found that green tea can have a positive effect on the metabolism, which can help increase fat burning and thus help keep the weight down. But of course, drinking green tea is not a substitute for a good and healthy lifestyle, but simply a supplement that also tastes great.

Like coffee, green tea contains caffeine, and although the caffeine content in green tea is considerably less than in coffee, the caffeine is still a mild stimulant that can help improve mental alertness, concentration and performance. At the same time, green tea may also contain the amino acid L-theanine, which is known to have a calming effect and help reduce stress and improve focus.

And besides, green tea just tastes good.

I'm just so :o)
