Benefits of Green Tea

February 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

The benefits of green tea are astronomical. It is so important to have a drink with so many health benefits in your life. Those antioxidants are helping to rid our body of free radicals. Starting your morning off right with antioxidants flowing through your veins is a good start to your day and the benefits of green tea are just what is needed. This powerful drink is full of polyphenols, phytochemicals with potent antioxidant properties that give green tea its bitter flavor. It contains an antioxidant epigallocatechin-3 gallate (EGCG) which is helpful in treating a variety of diseases.

There is a reason why the Japanese have one of the longest lifespans on the planet. Yes, there is a high seafood consumption as well as seaweed and ginger, but the benefits of this into their diet has played a large role towards longevity. Parts of Asia were drinking green tea for thousands of years and it's still going strong today.

The health benefits -

• helps against formation of cancer• controls diabetes• helps prevent heart disease• makes your complexion acne-free, healthier• aids in weight loss regimen• slows down the aging process• calms your digestion• helps with your bowel problems• it helps prevent plaque from forming

Does Green tea have Caffeine? Yes it does- Here is how you can get rid of it.

Industrial Process-1: In this, leaves are treated with a powerful ethel which drains out most of its caffeine (of course, with a lot of its anti oxidant Polyphenols and vitamins too). And for many, it helps to relax yourself. It's sets your mood and prepares you for the rest of the day. Domestic Process: These benefits are huge. This is a very simple process and the most healthiest. You just need to steep your tea in hot water for approximately 20 seconds and then pour out that water (you may use this tea to serve those who don't mind having caffeinated tea).

I've been drinking tea for years and years without realizing there are benefits of green tea. Most (but not all) of the caffeine is released into the water within that minute. A brand I enjoy is Indian decaffinated Cert. Organic (Camellia Sinensis) 4 oz: C Pour yourself a hot cup, sit back, relax and enjoy your day. A new study shows that pregnant women who drink caffeine are more likely to get the recommended 30 minutes of exercise a day by going for brisk walks.

I love teaching a healthy lifestyle and have done so for almost 3 decades.
