Did you know?
It is healthier to drink green tea with citrus fruits. Studies suggest that the vitamin C content in juicy fruits (and these summer juice recipes) allow green tea to fight cancer better. This is because green tea and citrus fruits are both antioxidant rich and together they make a potent combo! Studies show Vitamin C increases the number of catechins available to the body, by protecting them from degradation. Catechins are disease-fighting flavonoids and antioxidants found in teas.
