Green tea is the healthiest beverage ever. It is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients, and gives so many benefits to our body. The various bioactive compounds on green tea can improve health. One of the more powerful compounds in green tea is the antioxidant Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which has been studied to treat various diseases and may be one of the main reasons green tea has such powerful medicinal properties. Green tea does more than just keep you awake, it can also make you smarter. The key active ingredient is caffeine, which is a known stimulant. Caffeine has been intensively studied before and consistently leads to improvements in various aspects of brain function, including improved mood, vigilance, reaction time and memory. However, green tea contains more than just caffeine; it also has the amino acid L-theanine, which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. Because of the L-theanine and the smaller dose of caffeine, green tea can give you a much milder and different kind of “buzz” than coffee. With so many benefits found on green tea, Singgasana Hotel Surabaya presents a special offer of the month. Only until this December, you can choose any kinds of beverages made of green tea such as, Iced Green Tea Latte, Green Tea Smoothie and Iced Green Tea with Cream.
