Green Tea – The Ancient Natural Weight Loss, Heart-Healthy and Cancer-Fighting Tea*
Green Tea for Good Health
The health benefits of green tea have been enjoyed by humankind for over 4,000 years. This hydrating, calorie-free beverage was first brewed in China around 2737 BC during the reign of Emperor Shen Nung.
Like most teas, green tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves undergo minimal oxidation during processing, resulting in maximum potency of key ingredients. Namely, the plant-derived antioxidants flavonoids and poly-phenols have super-charged health benefits including anti-oxidative and anti-carcinogenic functions. In addition, green tea is one of the best sources of catechins on the planet. Catechins are all-natural antioxidants known to be more effective than vitamins C and E in preventing oxidative damage to cells and have other disease-fighting properties.
But that’s not all! Drinking green tea offers additional benefits essential to every day health and overall body function. Green tea can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels within the normal range, provide support for improved artery function and aide in general cardiovascular health. In fact, a study conducted in China published in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed a 46%-65% reduction in hypertension risk in regular consumers of oolong or green tea, compared to non-tea drinkers.
Green tea also contains alkaloids such as caffeine, theophylline, theobromine (which provide green tea's stimulant effects) and L-theanine, all of which have been praised for their calming effects on the nervous system.
Green Tea for Weight Management
Beyond the phenomenal health benefits of green tea, it can provide weight loss support as well. Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost the metabolism and help burn through stored fat in the body. Some researchers believe that the catechins found in green tea are responsible for the herb's fat-burning effects. Green tea is most effective for weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and daily exercise routine.
