"Great health benefits from Green Teas"

There are great health benefits from drinking green teas. Green teas help detoxify the body as well as neutralize certain damage done by things such as tobacco and cigarettes. The main health benefit that was always discussed in regards to antioxidants was that they neutralized free radicals which were the cells that we all have in our body that contribute to the aging and degenerative process. The antioxidants in green tea help slow certain degenerative aspect of aging and keep us in better general health. New evidence is turning up every day that shows more concrete evidence of even more health benefits.

I had remembered hearing that they were testing the aspect of these teas on people with neurological disorders, The American Medical Library discussed the effects of green tea on those with Alzheimer's, it also discussed the likelihood that green tea might also help Parkinson's disorders. Green tea also has a anti- inflammation properties and is currently being used as therapy for many patients. green tea contains polyphenol which are thought to improve health, particular catechins ,themost abundant of which epigallocatechin gallate.

In vitro animal studies as well as preliminary observational and clinical studies of humans, suggest that green tea can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer as well as beneficially impact on bone density, cognitive function, dental cavities,and kidney stones; However, the human studies are sometimes mixed and inconsistent. green tea also contains carotenoids, tocopherols, ascorbic acid, vitamin C,minerals suck as chromium,manganese, selinium, or zinc and certain phytochemical compounds.

it is a more potent antioxidant than the black teas. Although black tea has a substance which green tea doesn't have such as theaflavin. Green tea consumption is associated with reduced heart disease in epidemiological studies. Animal studies have found that it can reduce cholesterol in in small animals, However brief trials that tea consumption did not reduce cholesterol in humans. In 2003 a randomized clinical trial found that green tea extract with added theaflavin form black tea reduce cholesterol in humans.

Keep up the good words! I drink gallons of all different kinds of tea & particularly enjoy green tea as an iced tea blended with a black tea. Sounds strange, but I developed a taste for it & think its pretty healthy stuff.

Peace & blessings.
