For a longer life, one cup of green tea please


Tea - a warm drink that brings people together, sitting over this miracle. In a recent article in the New York Post, Dr. Jason Fung and Dr. James DiNicolantonio mentioned arecipe for longevity. Red wine and green tea should definitely not be absent from everyday life.

To reach these conclusions, Dr. Fung (a neurologist) and Dr. DiNicolantonio (a doctor of pharmacology) are looking for so-called blue zones. These are the areas of the world with the longest-lived populations. One of them is Okinawa, Japan. Their research has yielded some pretty standard recipes for longevity. Don't eat too much meat, animal products like eggs and cheese, and almost no processed foods. Eat mostly vegetables, fruits, and get your protein from plant-based options like nuts and legumes.

One other suggestion was green tea, which Dr. Fung says suppresses appetite and boosts metabolism. The article also notes that some research suggests this drink may help ward off cancer.

However, green tea also contains caffeine, so pregnant women and people suffering from too much caffeine should not drink it. A cup of green tea contains approximately 24 milligrams of caffeine. Read our article on how much of a cup of coffee is still okay so you don't become addicted to caffeine. Dr. Funge also recommends drinking green tea without cream and sugar, as these are unnecessary extra calories.
