Green Tea is widely considered by nutritionists one of the healthiest drinks on Earth. It is chock full of supercharged antioxidants that boost the immune system, reduce risk of many diseases, support healthier blood flow and heart function, and may contribute to weight loss, among other health benefits. With less caffeine than coffee and black tea, and far fewer calories and artificial ingredients than soda, Green Tea is an excellent drink alternative for a healthy lifestyle.
Similar to White tea, Black tea and Oolong tea, Green Tea comes from the Camellia sinensis bush. But unlike the others, Green Tea is made from the un-oxidized dried leaves of the plant. This helps lock in a superior antioxidant content. The most potent antioxidants found in Green Tea are polyphenols, especially catechins like Epigallocatechin-3-gallate or EGCG for short. All antioxidants help protect and defend cells from free radicals that can damage and mutate cellular DNA. But polyphenols like EGCG are even more effective at preventing the harmful effects of free radicals. Of the antioxidants found in Green Tea, over half are these powerful catechins. This makes Green Tea an incredible disease-preventative beverage.
Beyond preventing diseases caused by cellular mutations, Green Tea supports healthy blood flow and heart function. Catechins are known to lower harmful cholesterol levels and blood pressure, both of which help blood flow smoothly throughout the body. As blood flows to-and-from the heart properly, the risk of heart disease, heart attack, stroke and congestive heart failure is reduced, along with other negative side effects of high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Moreover, blood flowing to the brain helps improve cognition, clarity, memory and alertness.
Of course, better blood flow also supports a more active body too. By sending oxygen and nutrients throughout the body, energy increases. With more energy comes motivation, stamina and endurance for physical activity and exercise. Therefore, Green Tea is often recommended for weight loss. Although it is not a “magic potion” for losing weight, it can boost the energy required for a healthier lifestyle that leads to weight loss, especially when Green Tea replaces more sugary drinks. Some evidence also indicates that Green Tea can help manage symptoms of diabetes and reduce the risk of the disease.
Catechins found in Green Tea are responsible for a host of other wonderful health benefits too. EGCG has shown to relieve pollen allergies by blocking the receptors that cause allergic reactions. Catechins and other antioxidants found in Green Tea support oral health by improving the quality of teeth and gums, as well as bolstering eye tissue for better eyesight. Finally, Green Tea has sun-protective qualities as catechins help prevent UV rays from damaging skin cells.
