  3. Lowers cholestrol.

  4. Stops gum bleeding.

  5. Bloating.

  6. Mood- Green tea contains theanine, an amino acid that provides a relaxing and tranquilizing effect. However, it is recommended that your tea be hot as the warm temperature is also soothing.

  7. Contains anti-bacterial and anti-viral agents which are capable of treating anything.
