Catechin-Rich Ice Tea

Research suggests that certain catechins found in green tea help modulate the production and actions of androgens and other hormones. Consequently, it has been hypothesized green tea could be useful for the treatment of hormone-related baldness. This hair loss fighting drink recipe uses loose tea leaves and advises a relatively long brewing time, both of which improve the release of catechins from green tea leaves. Lemon juice, rich in vitamin C, further improves the availability of catechins.

However, these flavonoids lose much of their antioxidant power if they are consumed together with dairy. In order to maximize the antioxidant effects of cocoa, this hot chocolate is made with almond milk instead of cow's milk.
