Are you looking for new ways to infuse your diet with healthy options? Do you want less cavities, a faster metabolism, healthier gums -- and more? Did you know that by drinking Japanese green tea regularly, you can infuse your diet with many healthy benefits that you currently may be missing out on?
Not only does Japanese green tea taste delicious and is refreshing especially following a meal, but it is rich in benefits. Green tea helps to alleviate inflammation, promotes good oral health over the long-term and is rich in antioxidants -- which contribute to less free radicals in your body and ultimately, less susceptibility to diseases.
If you're ready to boost your oral health today, then read on to get our top 10 tips for why you should start drinking green tea. Here's what you need to know:
Green tea has an anti-inflammatory property that helps to keep your gums in good shape and to fight against gum disease, known as periodontal disease. In fact, Colgate reported on a Japanese study that found that regularly drinking green tea leads to better gum conditions and a lower chance of periodontal disease.
Green tea also has an astringent quality that makes it a natural cleaner for your mouth. It effectively kills bacterial microbes that lead to foul smelling breath by attacking all sides of your mouth and tongue where those bacterial elements love to thrive. A study from the dentistry school of the University of British Columbia found that bad breath reduced among study participants who consumed a green tea powder at a higher rate than those who chewed minty chewing gum.
Green tea has the benefit of making your tooth enamel strong. With the onslaught of acidic drinks you probably are intaking in a day -- from coffee to tea to soft drinks -- your mouth's pH can rise to a dangerous acid level and that contributes to the deterioration of your tooth enamel. Green tea helps keep your teeth strong in the midst of the acidic drinks and food you may consume throughout the day.
Because green tea is extremely effective at maintaining good basic pH levels in your mouth, it not only tempers the pH level, but it helps to control bacterial levels that lead to infection, to reduce plaque, and to protect your teeth against the onslaught of cavities.
Because green tea is a great antidote to bacteria and acid in your mouth, it makes sense that it would lead to healthier gums, less cavities and a less likely chance of developing gum disease. But did you also know that it helps support keeping all of your teeth? That's because overall, the antibacterial and anti-inflammation properties of green tea are creating an environment within your mouth that promotes the stability of your teeth. You're more likely to keep all of your natural pearly whites over time when you incorporate a regular green tea habit into your diet.
Green tea is a great source of antioxidants. When antioxidants are swirling around in your mouth, they are fighting free radicals and working hard to thwart cancer growth. A University of Texas study analyzed the progression of precancerous outbreaks in ten mouths of patients and found that those who were given a green tea extract as part of their diet had a slower progression of oral cancer than those who didn't consume the extract.

Strep throat is an unpleasant virus that requires medication to get better -- or otherwise you could cause significant strain and damage to your heart. Because of its bacteria-fighting superpowers, green tea can help your mouth and throat stay healthy and fight the onslaught of this virus.
If you currently have sensitive teeth, you may from time to time experience bleeding after brushing. Bleeding also can be a sign of gum disease, and you should consult with your dentist if you have either of these issues. Green tea is a natural anti-inflammatory substance, and it can keep bleeding at bay by making sure your gums are strong.
For all its great benefits for your mouth, green tea does have one downside -- and that is it can stain your teeth over time just like any other tea. So make sure you swish your mouth with water after every mug to help prevent the tea leaves from building up a stain on the fronts and backs of your teeth. This can happen with any tea use over time. The benefits of green tea certainly outweigh this one consequence -- so just make sure you rinse!
With so many wonderful benefits, it's not an option but a given that green tea should be part of your regular diet. You'll reap the many benefits -- not only for your body -- but for the pleasure it creates in your life.
Brewing green tea can be a social event that helps you connect with your colleagues, friends and loved ones over a steaming mug. It's the perfect antidote to a bad day, a rainy day -- or really any day when you need a little peace and relaxation in your life.
