Did you know…that kukicha green tea alkalizes your body for better health and works topically to beautify your skin?
Kukicha green tea, or “twig tea,” is unique among green teas. It is not made not from tea leaves, but from the stems and young twigs of the tree shrub Camellia sinensi.
This tea is infused with vitamins and minerals that nurture the plant’s growth and has therefore featured prominently in traditional Japanese and Chinese medicine as an elixir for…
• High blood pressure
• Sluggish digestion
• Bladder infections
• Heart disease
• High cholesterol
• Weight loss
Impressive Health Benefits…From Twigs!
Twig tea has more than twice the vitamin C of oranges and 6 times more calcium than cow’s milk. Trade in a glass of milk for a cup of kukicha and you’re on your way to building bone density!
Kukicha is also high in:
• B vitamins
• Vitamin A
• Amino acids
Shed Fat, Stave Off Cancer and Diabetes, and Detoxify
Kukicha is especially effective as a weight loss aid because it stimulates the production of bile, thereby enhancing digestion and making it easier for your body to digest fat.
Its rich concentration of natural fluoride helps reduce plague and bacterial infection, and also cuts your risk of certain cancers. In fact, all varieties of green tea are praised for their cancer-fighting powers.
Preventative Medicine published a study made up of 8552 Japanese adults whose green tea intake was monitored for 40 years. Results showed that women who drank more than 10 cups of green tea a day had a much lower risk of cancer.
A cup of green tea a day also keeps Type 2 diabetes away. Results from a recent study published in BMC Pharmacology indicate that green tea increases the rate of glucose metabolism and lowers blood sugar levels.
While kukicha tea has not been studied extensively in the West, substantial anecdotal evidence attests to its healing abilities.
Rich in antioxidants, twig tea possesses detoxifying properties that help the liver and kidneys function at their optimum and remove unwanted wastes and by-products.
As explained in the book, The Everything Guide to Macrobiotics, twig tea has the ability to:
• Burn fat
• Lower cholesterol
• Reduce acidity and increase alkalinity
Twig tea’s alkalizing effect helps your body ward off virtually every disease.
