Green tea, lemon peel and lemongrass

I got a bit bored of constantly looking at magnesium supplements so I had some green tea with the above ingredients in it and tried to find out what it was good for.

Green tea:

helps the body burn fat which improves exercise endurance and boosts metabolism. The flavonoids present in green tea cause blood vessels to dilate and improve blood flow. The flavonoids in green tea are thought to fight against the following cancers; breast, colon, colorectal, skin, lung, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, pancreas, liver, ovarian, prostate and cancers in the mouth. This tea also slows the rise of blood sugar by trigger insulin production and reduces bad cholesterol. In studies on mice it was shown that green tea protected neurons from dying and also repaired damage to them. The theanine (amino acid) found in green tea is believed to have the calming effects that so many people seek.

Lemon peel:

This is used for diabetes (as it reduces the serum level of triglycerides and cholesterol), obesity, cancer (through the actions of salvestrol Q40 and limonene), osteoporosis, athritis and fractures (through calcium and vitamin C), pectin in the lemon peel also prevents your body from absorbing too much sugar.

However, lemon peel can also cause kidney and gallbladder stones


This is used for colds, anxiety, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, digestion, dry skin, acne, relaxation, better sleep, arthritis, gout, sprains, constipation, stomach ache, cancer (prevention and treatment), headaches, detoxification of digestive organs and improving circulation.

So that's all the stuff that green tea containing lemon peel and lemongrass is supposed to do, personally it just gives me chest pain though.
