Health conscious people are filling their cup with green tea. Its time you do the same and you will be surprised with what green tea can do for your body’s health. Green, oolong, and black teas all come from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. What makes green tea extra special is the way it is processed. Green tea leaves are steamed, which prevents the polyphenol EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate - a powerful antioxidant) from being oxidized. By contrast, black and oolong tea leaves are made from fermented leaves thus decreasing its nutrient content.
Green tea has many different types of antioxidants which serves as powerful free-radical fighting substances that help the body fight off infections and illness. Free radicals come from things like environmental pollution, cigarette smoke and damage DNA contributing to diseases, like cancer.
Practitioners in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine used green tea as a stimulant, a diuretic (to help remove excess body fluid), an astringent (to control bleeding and help heal wounds), and to improve heart health. Wait, there’s more- which include treating gas, regulating body temperature and blood sugar, promoting digestion, and improving mental processes.
