High-quality tea—green tea in particular—contain polyphenol antioxidants that are recognized for their disease prevention and anti-aging properties. Powerful polyphenols found in green tea has been shown to positively impact a number of illnesses and conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer. A recent review of 25 studies concluded that long-term tea intake significantly improved blood pressure. A number of studies suggest you need to drink approximately three to four cups of tea per day to reap optimal results. Matcha tea can contain over 100 times the EGCG (a powerful anit-oxidant) provided by regular brewed green tea, and since you’re consuming the entire ground tea leaf, you’re getting the most benefit from each cup.

Chiropractic Thought for the Week: When you think of the ideal chiropractic patient, one typically thinks of a person suffering from lower back or neck pain. Rightly so, as chiropractic is probably the most effective natural treatment for those conditions. However, when I think of the ideal chiropractic patient, I think of a person with no symptoms or complaints. I think of a person who is interested in maintaining thier health by having their spine adjusted and cleared of spinal nerve interference. Chiropractic care used on a regular basis, whether you have symptoms or not, maintains health, boosts immune system function and helps yoour body function at an optimal level.

Chiropractic Care: Pain relief? Yes. More mobility? Yes. Enhanced performance? Yes. Improved health? Yes. Increased quality of life? Yes. This is what chiropractic care can do for you. Not sure about the how or the why? Here it is. Spinal adjustments realign your spinal joints, balancing your neck and back musculature. This increases mobility and relieves aches and discomforts. Most importantly, spinal adjustments improve nerve flow to all of your body’s internal systems and organs. Doing this improves the function of your body’s insides, thus enhancing health. The outcome of less pain, more mobility and improved health leads to a greater quality of life for you!
