An Anti-Aging, Fat-Burning Zen Story

The Zen master Hakuin used to tell his students about an old woman who owned a tea shop in the village. She was skilled in the tea ceremony, Hakuin said, and her understanding of Zen was superb.

Many students wondered about this and went to the village themselves to check her out. Whenever the old woman saw them
coming, she could tell immediately whether they had come to experience the tea, or to probe her grasp of Zen.

Those wanting tea she served graciously. For the others wanting to learn about her Zen knowledge, she hid until they approached her door and then attacked them with a fire poker. Only one out of ten managed to escape her beating.

Green tea, used for thousands of years in Asia, as both beverage and herbal medicine is now the subject of numerous scientific studies in the U.S. and abroad.

Research shows that green tea helps to prevent cancer and heart disease.  Green tea slows the aging process and may even reduce harmful blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels.  It has been known to prevent and reduce the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.

Scientists in the United States and Switzerland published a study in the December 1999 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showing that green tea extract contained a substance that may help burn fat.  The Linus Pauling Institute explains that the weight loss is “apparently due to increased fat oxidation and thermogenesis.”

Put that in your teapot and drink it! (Green Tea contains caffeine).

A recap or recup, if you will!

Green Tea …
1. helps to prevent certain types of cancer
2. helps to prevent heart disease
3. slows the aging process
4. reduces harmful blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels
5. prevents and reduces the pain of rheumatoid arthritis
6. helps burn fat
