If you are looking to start taking a supplement to improve your health, one of the best options may be to take a green tea supplement. This is mostly due to all the information about how healthy it is to drink green tea but depending on your schedule, you may find it difficult to find the time to drink green tea during your day. There are also some people who do not like the taste so taking it in a pill form may work better for them.

By doing a bit of research into green tea, you will likely find all sorts of information about the health benefits to be found. Using green tea will help you to fight aging, cancer, allergies, cholesterol as well as a variety of other health conditions that you may find. There is also some research that if you drink green tea it will help to curb any cravings you may have which in turn can help with weight loss if this is something that you are struggling with.

But the question becomes, which green tea is best? Again, this comes down to preference and if you have tried a variety of different types of green tea, you may find that you just cannot tolerate any flavor available and may decide that the supplement is truly the best option for you.

What are some of the benefits of taking a daily dose of green tea through supplements?

Tooth Decay and Bad Breath – Green tea works by helping to destroy bacteria that cause both plaque on the teeth and that cause bad breath. It likely works better if you drink green tea, but a supplement likely wouldn’t hurt.

Reduce Smoking Risks – Ever noticed that Japanese men tend to have less heart disease than others? This is due to them drinking up to six cups of green tea a day. This reduces the susceptibility to risks from the toxins found in cigarette smoke. No way you can manage to drink green tea all day to get in six cups? A supplement can help you with this – just make sure to purchase a high quality one.

      I had no clue that green tea could reduce smoking risks! That is something I will definitely have to try since I haven't managed to quit smoking yet!
