Green tea daily -- review/giveaway 9/23 ***CLOSED!!!***

***CLOSED!!!!***



You guys have seen me rave about coffee and tea before I am sure. So naturally when MyGreenTeaDaily contacted me to do a potential review I jumped at the chance. I thought I would be receiving tea bags, but what they actually are is little drink powder "sticks". These things are really popular nowadays and not without good reason. For a person on the go, they are key in take & toss. Toss them into a briefcase or a purse or your car, grab a glass of water and pour.

A box of 60 sticks sells for around 60$ so an average of 1$ per stick. Less than you probably pay from a beverage at a fast food restaurant and a lot more beneficial to your health. If you would like to try the sampler first it is available for purchase for $14.95  GreenTeaDaily Sampler And even better- they gacve me a coupon code to share with you to recieve 50% off!
I have a coupon code for you guys! 50% off at GreenTeaDaily (.com)'s webstore! use coupon code: Locomotion  !

I know this is something silly to rave about - but I do want to commend them on a job well done on the product's packaging design! Reminiscent to me of the 70s, and really cute-sy! I would purchase it ff the store shelves for that reason alone. I am a sucker for good marketing like that. My thought is, if they put that much time into designing the container, what's inside has got to be worth trying! (:


GreenTeaDAILY contains over 450 mg of antioxidants and polyphenols per serving. 
Calcium: An important nutrient for the health of our bones and teeth, also a vital mineral for a broad range of organs and body systems.
Maqui Berry: Said to have a high composition of disease busting anti-oxidants, much higher than other well known superfoods.
Noni: Help boost and maintain a healthy immune system.
Acai:  A remarkable concentration of antioxidants that help combat premature aging. 
  

L-Theanine: Theanine has been shown to reduce mental and physical stress, and improves cognition and mood.




The main ingredient in this product is green tea. Who would have thought, right?  Then enter a selection of super fruits, such as maqui berry, acai berry, and noni. and even a little calcium! 
These berries/fruits are super expensive to buy as supplements and grow in parts of the world not local to us. They are rare and expensive and so good for you. I am impressed that they contain these ingredients! Go Green Tea Daily!


With five thirst-quenching flavors to choose--Original, Raspberry Lemonade, Strawberry Pineapple, Chocolate, and Creamsicle--how can you not love GreenTeaDaily!


So let us get into the flavors and which flavors I liked-- and which one not so much!

Of course, we all have different prefernces so lets get the nasty band aid pull over with right now-- I did not like the chocolate flavor. It reminded me of a weight loss chocolate chew I bought a few years ago. I had tried to stomach it, so my money wouldn't be wasted... but ended up throwing it away. Luckily there were only two of these.. so I gave the other packet to my husband. Sorry to say he didn't like it much either.


My favorite was the Original! Second in line was the Strawberry Pineapple and also Creamsicle. The hubby loved the Raspberry Lemonade flavor best, which I did not dislike, but didn't like as much as the other flavors.

Maybe in the future I can work with them again, because I would LOVE to try their Noni To Go!


"Have you been wondering “what’s all the fuss about green tea?” Now you can stop wondering and start drinking…green tea, that is. This flavorful beverage offers many health benefits to anyone who drinks it regularly. Green tea contains a potent plant nutrient known as epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, for short. But don’t fret, you don’t have to keep track of its chemical name to reap the health benefits. Here are 9 reasons to start drinking green tea or continue drinking it if you’re already hooked.
1. Green tea is a superb fat fighter. Its active ingredient, EGCG, increases the rate at which fat is burned in your body.
2. It targets belly fat. Research at Tufts University indicates that EGCG in green tea, like other catechins, activate fat-burning genes in the abdomen to speed weight loss by 77 percent.
3. It keeps energy stable by balancing blood sugar levels. EGCG improves insulin use in the body to prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes that can result in fatigue, irritability, and cravings for unhealthy foods.
4. Research shows it may be helpful against lung cancer. In an April 2010 study published in Cancer Prevention Research, EGCG was found to suppress lung cancer cell growth."
