Why Choose Green Tea?


Green tea has been in use as medication for several thousand years. It originated in China, but was used throughout Asia. This beverage has a lot of uses, from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer. Green tea is believed to have further benefits than regular black tea because of its processing. While black tea is allowed to ferment, green tea processing avoids fermentation. Green tea is also believed to hold more antioxidants and polyphenols than any other plants, giving it an impressive array of research-supported benefits.

Below is a list of a few of its incredible health benefits that you might not be aware of. Some are still being debated by scientists, so it is up to you if you want to utilize green tea as a medication.

Diabetes: 

Green tea helps in regulating the level of glucose in the body, thus impeding the rise of blood sugar after the intake of food. This helps in the prevention of insulin spikes as well as the subsequent fat storage.

Weight Loss:

Green tea helps in boosting the metabolism. Polyphenol, which is found in green tea, boosts the levels of fat oxidation as well as the rate at which the body converts food to calories.

Heart Disease:

Scientists believe green tea helps in keeping the lining of blood vessels relaxed and giving them more ability to resist changes in blood pressure. It also inhibits the formation of clots, which are the major cause of heart attacks.

Cholesterol:

Green tea lessens bad cholesterol in the blood and increases the proportion of the good cholesterol to help keep them balanced.

Blood Pressure:

The regular intake of green tea reduces the risk of high blood pressure.

Tooth Decay:

Studies show that the presence of antioxidants such as catechin found in green tea is effective in treating some dental infections.

Depression:

Theanine is an amino acid that exists naturally in green tea leaves. This amino acid is assumed to have a relaxing and calming effect on the body.

Esophageal Cancer:

Green tea reduces the risk of esophageal cancer and is generally assumed to destroy cancer cells as a whole without causing any harm to the healthy tissue surrounding them.

Antibacterial and antiviral:

Green tea catechins are strong antiviral and antibacterial agents that are effective for the treatment of diseases ranging from influenza to cancer. Some studies revealed that green tea hinders the spread of diseases.

Skincare:

Green tea has been said to help with wrinkles as well as the signs of aging due to the anti-inflammatory action of the antioxidants. Both studies of human and animal subjects have revealed that green tea can reduce sun damage if applied topically.

Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Diseases:

Green tea delays the weakening caused by Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. Studies carried out on mice revealed that green tea protects brain cells from dying and reinstates damaged brain cells.
