There has been said a lot about the health benefits of green tea. But scientists keep discovering new facts. For example, they recently found selenium in green tea, on of the most beneficial microelements. Selenium in a balanced combination with zinc, potassium and other elements and vitamins amazingly keeps us young and sexually active. It is especially healthy in tandem with tocopherol (vitamin E). Besides, selenium has antioxidant properties which strengthen heart muscle.
To look deeper into the health benefits of green tea, a team of highly competent scientists from University of California conducted many full-fledged experiments. They studied eating patterns and lifestyles of over than 200 000 people. They also examined about 4 000 patients who suffered heart attack. Overall results revealed an interesting fact: green tea is an excellent protection for the blood vessels of heart. Analyzed data showed those who drank, at least, three cups of green tea every day were 20% less likely to have heart attack.
