Did you know that green tea is one of the healthiest beverages on the planet? This magic drink is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants that have very powerful effects on your body.
Here are some of the proven green tea benefits. You will absolutely love the tea henceforth!
Better brain function
Green tea contains caffeine, which is a powerful stimulant. Unlike coffee and other teas, it has just enough to give you the needed effect without making you jittery thereafter. Caffeine blocks adenosine, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, allowing more L-theanine and dopamine (the feel-good enzyme) to be released. The benefits include better mood, sharper vigilance, better memory and faster reaction time.
Check any weight-loss product: there are 90% chances that green tea will be in the ingredients list. This is because our magic drink boosts the metabolic rate in humans, therefore more fat is burned. Better metabolism means more energy expenditure, better fat oxidation and significant boost in physical activity.
Lower cancer risks
Cancer occurs when cells grow uncontrollably. It is now a leading cause of death. The good news is that green tea has antioxidant powers that prevent the overgrowth of cells. It is proven that this tea has some of the most powerful antioxidants than any other plant.
Recent studies show that:
· Women who take green tea have a 20-30% lower risk of developing the dreaded breast cancer.
· Men who drink green tea have a 48% lower risk of developing prostate cancer: the most common cancer in men.
· People who drink this tea have a 42% lower risk of developing colorectal cancer, as well as other forms of cancer.
Prevent Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
If you make green tea your best friend, it will protect you in old age from these two monsters that affect the elderly. This beverage has proven to contain catechin compounds which protect neurons in the brain. If the neurons are secured from degenerative effects, a person will be safe from diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Unlike medical antibiotics which target all forms of bacteria, even the good ones in your body, green tea will mostly kill the harmful types. This is because of the catechins in the leaves. It will inhibit unwanted bacteria such as the influenza virus. Apart from curing it, it will keep it away. Second, it will deal with the streptococcus mutans bacteria which cause cavities and tooth decay by forming plaque. This also keeps bad breath away!
Prevent Type 2 diabetes
This is yet another monster that we fear contracting very much. Over 400 million suffer from it worldwide. It is caused by excess blood sugar levels owing to the production of insufficient insulin or insulin resistance. Now, green tea has been proven to reduce the level of blood sugar as well as improving insulin sensitivity. Therefore, it will not only reduce the risks but also improve existing type 2 diabetes.
These 6 benefits that I have discussed are just but a tip of the iceberg. Green tea has tons of direct benefits on your health. Let this post act as a motivator for you to read more and start drinking this wonderful beverage. Make sure you sign up for our "Green Tea Challenge"
