It also speeds up metabolism to help you burn calories.
Then it was Keri Glassman, who said that tea has lots of health benefits. All types of tea, whether green, white, or black, come from the same plant. Green tea prevents cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes, and helps fight obesity, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. Tea also helps you calm down.
