Anti-Aging

Scientific studies, some conducted at Yale University,  have shown that green tea can significantly reduce the risk of many cancers and even reduce the size of tumors. It has been used for thousands of years in China, India, Thailand, Japan and other Eastern countries as a general health tonic, much like ginseng, without significant negative side-effects. And like ginseng, science is only beginning to discover its incredible anti aging health benefits.

Here’s a nice little ditty about the Japanese spiritual relationship to tea ceremonies, a very special part of their culture. ” In japan, the traditional japanese tea ceremony is a chance for friends to gather in a harmonious environment and reflect upon the simple joys of friendship and the beauty of nature.”

Beyond cancer additional research has shown that green tea increases the heart’s resistance to vascular diseases, increases life span, cleanses the body of toxins and strengthens your immune system. Green tea can even fight gingivitis (gum disease) and prevent your teeth from getting cavities.

Even better for most people, green tea delays and reduces the onset of wrinkles as we age. This keeps us looking younger and healthier, which helps from getting a job to getting a mate. Green tea is known to enhance wakefulness, facilitates the formation of better ideas, decreases tiredness and relaxes the muscles of the body.

Green tea:  stronger than Black tea?

They are processed differently. Both teas contains an enzyme that oxidates them, meaning if they sit around they get destroyed. But the the process of steaming and heating green tea stops this oxidation process earlier than with black tea, which goes through additional processing that destroys some of the flavonoids (polyphenols) unique to tea such as thearubigins, epicatechins, catechins and other antioxidants, and causes leaves to turn dark brown or even red.

Flavonoids are polyphenolic compounds that are ubiquitous in nature and are categorized, according to chemical structure, into flavonols, flavones, flavanones, isoflavones, catechins, anthocyanidins and chalcones.”

Green tea leaves are not, as are black tea leaves, fermented; they are naturally processed and steamed. Black and other teas are additionally subjected to a mashing and fermenting procedure, which degrades the antioxidants in them. A catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (egcg) is  responsible for some of the healthy effects of green tea, and is great for boosting metabolism for those who want to lose weight. So it’s true, green tea is one of the most potent of all the teas.

    Hi there,

    Green tea contains caffeine, catechins and tannic acids. All three substances have been linked to pregnancy risks.

    Thanks

      I hope you don't mean if I drink green tea I might get pregnant :)

      Thanks for bringing that up. Any woman who becomes pregnant should become hyper-vigilant about what she puts into her body, including health supplements. Every pregnant woman should consult with a health expert regarding proper diet and nutrition during this important time.

    Nice post. I have heard a lot about healing features of green tea. It has more pros than cons. But I 've heard if you drink a lot of green tea your teeth will get an yellow colour. It is ture?

    • Webmind

      Green tea is amazingly healthy. Sure, if you drink lots of tea every day your teeth may yellow slightly over the years, but that's going to happen anyway. With all the teeth whiteners on the market now, I wouldn't give it another thought, unless you need another link. Then just hit me up again.
