In a Chinese study, the cells of enthusiastic tea drinkers showed about five fewer years worth of wear and tear compared with the cells of people who drank little tea.

The enthusiastic tea drinkers averaged two or more cups of green or oblong tea daily, while the group that showed more signs of cell aging averaged less than a cup. The researchers looked specifically at the study participants' telomeres to see how much their cells had aged. Telomeres are the protective end caps on your DNA strands. They get a little shorter every time cells divide, so the shorter these caps are, the older your cells are. And in the study, the most avid tea drinkers had significantly longer telomeres than the people who drank less than a cup a day. So how do you turn back the clock? Researchers think it's the antioxidants in tea that help keep telomeres long. Antioxidants fight cancer, diabetes, and heart disease -- conditions that tend to damage cells. So bottoms up and enjoy the health benefits of green tea and turn five minutes into five years of extra quality living
