It's written in the tea leaves. You will have healthy gums.

Japanese researchers analyzed the green tea consumption of more than 900 middle-age men and found the participant's gum health improved with each cup of green tea daily.

Researchers believe the compound catechin in green tea reduces inflammation and helps keep your gums healthy. And gum disease is associated with kidney disease, heart disease and even pregnancy problems. That's serious stuff.

So, drink to a healthy future, and cook with green tea. Try my ChefMD®-approved easy, healthy and quick Butternut Barley Risotto with Goat Cheese and Toasted Almonds. It's a filling dish with lots of good taste and healthy ingredients, including green tea!
