8. Herbal or green tea is one of the best beverages to help boost physical energy
Herbal and green teas provide small amounts of caffeine that will boost your energy, but the health benefits of these teas go beyond caffeine. Teas, and especially green teas may also improve alertness, your reaction time, and your memory. If you prefer tea and energy without the caffeine, choose ginger or ginseng teas. The addition of herbal teas to your diet will also help reduce stress and anxiety. Green tea is an excellent choice as it contains a moderate amount of caffeine, less than coffee, but enough to produce a positive effect. L-theanine, an amino acid which is found in green tea, works with caffeine to improve brain function, increase metabolism and burn fat. Green tea is also rich in antioxidants, and may prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
What to do: The variety of teas available allows you to experiment with each to see which you prefer and try several different ones to see which your body responds most to.
