Orange juice could boost green tea benefits

If you are looking for something healthy to have with breakfast, you might want to combine your beverages.

Researchers say adding a splash of orange juice to green tea might boost the already healthy antioxidant powers of tea.

The new study from Purdue University finds citrus juice helps green tea's antioxidants remain in the body after digestion.

The study is preliminary, but scientists say those beneficial ingredients in green tea may contribute to a reduced risk for heart attack and even some types of cancer.
