Can’t decide between tea or juice? Why not combine the two? Adding an iced tea to your juice is a great way to mix it up in the warmer months. Studies have shown that the vitamin C content (in the lemon and pineapple) helps increase the antioxidant benefits and cancer-fighting properties of the green tea. Results suggest that combining green tea with citrus juices or vitamin C increases the amount of catechins available for the body to absorb. Green tea is also great for weight loss and appetite control. So, it’s a flavorful win-win.
