Yes, Bigelow Tea in a big mug can warm your hands and it can bring delicious aromas to your nose … but it’s the mouth that really gets to enjoy Bigelow Tea. The mouth is the gateway to Bigelow Tea’s rich flavors and that soothing sensation of sipping and swallowing tea. Now there’s news that Green Tea may actually keep your mouth safe from some forms of cancer! Read on.
A new Pennsylvania State University study published in Molecular Nutrition and Food stated that green tea might kill oral cancer cells, and boost healthy ones. In the study the authors found that a compound in green tea triggers a process in the cancerous cells’ mitochondria that leads to early cell death. A previous study in 2002 found that green tea could induce cancer cell death and suggested “regular consumption of green tea could be beneficial in the prevention of oral cancer.”
This is exciting news! So, in addition to tasting good, keeping you warm and making special memories, Bigelow Green Tea might keep your mouth healthy. Another wonderful reason to enjoy Bigelow Tea during its milestone 70th year! @DarlenyGomezR tweeted that she might be obsessed with Bigelow’s green tea … are you?
