Health & Nutrition - - NUTRITION UPDATE -

Start the day with a mug of green tea and fresh lemon juice. You’ve likely heard of the nu­tri­tional ben­e­fits of lemon water (psst: it’s known to boost the im­mune sys­tem, kick-start me­tab­o­lism, and aid di­ges­tion), as well as the health virtues of green tea (like im­proved brain func­tion, lower choles­terol, and bet­ter blood flow). Turns out, th­ese two nu­tri­ents are bet­ter to­gether. When you add lemon juice to your cuppa, it makes the an­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties of the green tea much more ac­ces­si­ble for your body to ab­sorb. Essen­tially, the lemon’s acid makes green tea’s su­per­pow­ers that much more su­per.
