2 Teas possibly more powerful than green tea?

Unless you've been on another planet the last few years, you've had it beaten into your head on the health benefits and antioxidant properties of green tea.

But there are 2 other teas I'd like to give honorable mention that could easily be just as healthy, and possibly have even more potent health benefits...

the only thing is that they simply have less studies on them, so they don't get as much publicity as green tea.

*From South America:

The first one I will mention is Yerba Mate, a South American herb.  I've developed quite a taste for yerba mate over the last couple of years, and it is a rich source of antioxidants, and particularly rich in polyphenols.

Although green tea gets a lot of press about it's antioxidants, don't overlook the benefits and antioxidant power of yerba mate tea. Plus, I think the taste is great!  I've been hooked lately on this cocoa-yerba-mate tea I found recently at Whole Foods. Delicous!

The caffeine content of yerba mate can best be described as somewhere between green tea and coffee.

*From Africa:

The next lesser known tea I wanted to mention that often takes a backseat to the spotlight of green tea is Rooibos tea (aka - red tea).

However, some argue that the antioxidant power and health benefits of Rooibos tea can easily rival green tea... it's just been studied less than green tea so it doesn't get the same attention.

Rooibos tea has no caffeine but is also an amazing source of different types of antioxidants compared to green tea. It's rich in minerals, flavanoids, and plenty of other unique antioxidants.  It also has a great taste that you might like.

Since rooibos tea has no caffeine, it's great to have near bedtime as an alternative to chamomile tea.

So, although most health professionals and media outlets like to talk about green tea and it's benefits, don't overlook the powerful health benefits of teas from the other continents -- in this case, Rooibos and Yerba Mate teas!
