Stay Young And Vibrant
With This “Ancient” Drink

What if I told you there was a
4,000 year old drink that not
only keeps you healthy, but
can shave off 5 years off your
actual “age…”

… and that this drink can keep
you young and vibrant due to
some special effects it has on
the body?

Would you be interested in finding
out what it is?

Good! Because the drink I’m talking
about is widely available and pretty

I’m talking about green tea!

You’ve probably heard about it’s
antioxidant effects and it’s ability
to help boost your metabolism.

But here’s what you probably don’t
know –

Recent research has found that green
tea can have a protective effect on your
genes, making you “younger” at a
genetic level.

Let me explain …

Green tea has been used for ages in
Asia, not only as a daily drink, but as
a source of medicine used to treat a
wide variety of ailments ranging from
indigestion to preventing fatigue and
improving brain function.

The source of its healing properties
comes from it’s antioxidants – namely
a polyphenol called Epigallocatechin
Gallate (EGCG)

Modern science has established that
this and other antioxidants in green
tea are far more powerful than vitamins
A, C or E. [1]

So it’s no wonder that recent findings
in a study published in the British
Journal of Nutrition are pretty amazing.

Researchers recruited 18 healthy
subjects who were split randomly
into two groups.

Group 1 was given 2 cups of
green tea every day.

Group 2 was given water every

The study lasted four weeks.
At the end of the study the scientists
analysed blood and urine samples of
all the participants and found that the
green tea offered significant protection
to the participant’s DNA.

In fact, further investigation
suggested that it reduced damage
to the participant’s genes by 20%! [2]

This is pretty amazing stuff!
That’s because your genes determine
how quickly you age.

See, at the end of every strand of
DNA in your body, there are end
caps known as telomeres.

The best way to understand this
is to think of a shoe lace. The shoe
lace is the strand of DNA.

The telomere is the plastic end of the
shoe string that lets you tie it easily.

As you age, your telomeres shorten.
The faster they get shorter, the quicker
you age. Several factors make them get
shorter, including processes in your body
as well as external elements in the environment
you live in (due to oxidative stress).

But if you drink green tea, you can slow
down this shortening process since it
protects your DNA.

The way it does this, is by extending
the life of your telomeres…

A study done at the Chinese University
of Hong Kong looked at the telomere
length of folks who drank 3 cups of
green tea per day. On average, the
telomeres of the green tea drinkers were
5 years younger than those of people of
the same age who did NOT. [3]

Bottom line: Drink some green tea.
The benefits are too many to ignore.

If you don’t want the caffeine, there
are plenty of decaffeinated brands that
still have the powerful antioxidants.

Aim for 2 – 3 cups per day.

If you simply don’t like the taste of
green tea, that’s fine too.

You can find the green tea EGCG’s
(the antioxidant responsible for many
of the beneficial effects) in supplement

Just make sure the supplement you
get has been standardised to at least
60% polyphenols for best results.

So drink up… and stay young. Cheers!
