Big news for green tea lovers. We have an organic Green Tea Tincture. It’s kosher. It’s caffeine free. It’s not from China. It’s free of fluoride contaminants. There’s no oxalate in it. All the good things are in there, none of the bad things. This is a green tea that’s very safe. I recommend in the winter months that you have your child gargle with the green tea twice a day. And you too, swish it around your mouth, gargle and swallow twice a day.†
There are thousands and thousands and thousands of studies on green tea. Your body can benefit from green tea whether you’re a child, an adult, or elderly. For kids, it has been shown to help support dental health and immune function.†
Recently they’ve shown that green tea helps promote brain, muscle and heart health, and can also support cellular functions in your body. Studies done at the Maastricht University in the Netherlands showed that green tea can boost your metabolism and help promote the fat-burning process. Researchers found green tea to be especially helpful when combined with exercise because it also helps support energy and workout performance.A lot of people have a problem with overeating, especially around the holidays. They did a study recently in Lund University in Sweden. It’s in the Nutrition Journal, which is a great journal. When they gave participants green tea after a meal, they found that it helped support feelings of satiation.†
"Let me tell you, every 28 or 29 drops (that’s a dropper-full), represents a big American cup of green tea."
They took a group of older women at Texas Tech University down in Lubbock, Texas and they published this in Osteoporosis International. They had this group of postmenopausal women doing Tai Chi exercises, this wonderful rhythmic movement. The other group, they gave Tai Chi and green tea. If they added the green tea to the exercise, they found that it supported muscle and bone health better than the exercise alone.†
I want to read you a couple of letters I got from my clients. Here’s Jack in Garden City Park, Long Island. He’s been on the Green Tea Tincture for four years. “I don’t know what I would do without taking my green tea every day. The green tea gives me energy throughout the day and I feel very relaxed and alert. I am grateful for it.”
Here’s Laura in Forest Hills, Queens. “I always had immediate clear-headedness and alertness after drinking your green tea. I feel sharp and energized for several hours. Its effects are wonderful. It’s also cleared my skin and improved my digestion. No negatives.”
Richard in Elmont, Queens. He’s been on our green tree drops for three years. “Your green tea drops are a favorite of mine. I find them invigorating, soothing and refreshing. It mixes with water. It seems to energize me both day and night.”
We’re getting feedback from people that they feel full, they’re satiated, they’re losing weight, and they have great endurance and energy from the green tea.
