Sssshhh... Keep these on the down-low.
Incase you've been living under a rock, the news is in, green tea is good for you.
But there's a few incredible benefits to drinking green tea that are far less publicised.
We've put together our Top 5 Green Tea Secrets to keep you in the know.
1. Green Tea > Black Tea 🍵
Tea is tea, right? Wrong.
The difference between green tea and black tea is very simple. Black tea is fermented, green tea is not. The difference however, is staggering.
By not subjecting the tea to a fermentation process, green tea retains the maximum amount of antioxidants and polyphenols possible, increasing the health and well-being benefits significantly over its counterpart.
When faced with the choice, always go green!
2. Cancer Benefits
While green tea is certainly not the miracle cancer-cure-all treatment we're looking for, it has been extensively studied in the recent years for its effect on cancer cells.
With study after study showing that ECGC, the main Green Tea catechin responsible for Green Tea's many health benefits, may prevent cells from becoming cancerous, while also disrupting the growth cycle of existing cancerous cells.

3. Nature's Fat Burner 🔥
A lot of fat burners on the market contain high levels of caffeine and stimulants, designed to promote "thermogenesis", essentially causing the body to run at a higher temperature to burn more calories.
While this may be fantastic for some, it's not the ideal solution for others, especially for those prone to anxiety or sensitive to caffeine and stimulants.
Enter green tea.
The catechins in green tea increase the body's metabolic rate, turning you into a fat-burning machine, naturally.
Not only will Green Tea increase the amount of calories burnt during a resting state, but it will also increase the effectiveness of exercise in expending energy.
However, each study which has attested to the amazing natural fat burning powers of Green Tea have involved much higher doses than normal, more like 5-10 cups per day vs the regular 1-2 cups a standard drinker would consume.
The solution? (Unless you want to be going to the bathroom all day) is Tribeca's X50 Green Tea Energy Drink, containing the fat burning benefits of over 20 cups of green tea in a tasty, convenient single serve!
4. Dental Health
No one likes coffee breath, so what about green tea breath?
The truth is, they couldn't be any more different.
Green tea actually reduces bad breath, by killing the bacteria called Streptococcus Mutans. This specific type of bacteria which lives in the mouth is the primary cause of not only bad breath but also tooth decay and cavities.
While dental health may be something that falls by the wayside for a lot of us, looking after your mouth by drinking green tea regularly can be incredibly friendly on the wallet come your next dental checkup!
5. Fat To Fuel
While fat burning is a well-known benefit of green tea, it's what actually becomes of the fat once it's burnt off that is perhaps the most interesting, and least known.
We all know that being in a calorie deficit isn't fun.
Dieting leads to low energy and motivation, due to the body consuming less calories than it needs, which is what leads to weight loss.
Green tea's selective fat burning ability, similar to L-Carnitine, causes fat stores to be converted to energy on a cellular level. This happens in the mitochondria, where these fat stores are broken down and converted into fuel, which provides an all-important pick-me-up for dieters!
