    Thumbs up green tea as a medicine


    The people of China have known about and consumed green tea as a medicine for over four thousand years.

    Legend has it that the Chinese emperor Shen Nung was drinking a cup of hot water when some tea leaves fell into his cup by accident. He drank it and found it tasted good. He continued to make the tea and discovered it’s many healing properties.

    Shen Nung’s discovery spread all throughout China and soon became the most popular drink in the country. Modern science has finally verified what the Chinese already knew. Green tea is good for you and contains many beneficial properties that can keep a person healthy.

    Green and black tea are made from the leaves of a plant called Camellia sinensis. The main difference between the two are the way in which they are produced.

    Green tea is not fermented. This just means that the tea leaves are steamed right after being picked. This prevents the leaves from oxidizing. This is the reason that the leaves stay green.

    This process keeps the health promoting active ingredients completely intact.

    Unlike green tea, black tea leaves are fermented. This causes the leaves to lose their enzymes and most of their nutritional value. These two very different production processes make green and black tea have dissimilar chemical properties.

    Most of green tea’s health benefits are derived from it’s high antioxidant content. These are called flavonoids or polyphenols. Green tea contains the same kind of antioxidants that fresh fruit contains. Three cups of green tea have the same amount of antioxidants as six fresh apples.

    What’s so important about antioxidants? They defend your body from dangerous free radicals and the oxidation they cause to your body’s cells. Free radicals are very harmful to the body and can cause cancer and other terrible health problems.

    Even though all types of teas are healthy, green tea is the best because of it’s very high flavonoid content.

    Some of the many health benefits of drinking green tea are:

    Greatly strengthens the immune system
    Lowers cholesterol
    Lowers high blood pressure
    Helps reduce inflammation
    Aids proper digestion
    Promotes respiratory health
    Possesses anti-bacterial properties
    Helps clear up acne
    Lowers blood sugar
    Helps in reducing weight
    Most people have heard about using green tea for losing weight. It’s in fact very popular these days. It is believed that drinking green tea speeds up fat oxidation. Also green tea helps you burn more calories per day.

    Green tea is so inexpensive and offers so many health benefits, everyone should at least give it a try.

    Thanks for your useful information. Green tea has huge health benefits that satisfy me a lots. But we should drink it in a moderate amount because the excessive use of green tea might cause side - effects.
