Goodness of Green Tea
The goodness of green tea had been recognised by the Chinese 4000 years ago. They believed that it was an effective cure for all ailments, from something as trifle as a headache to something as serious as cancer. Scientific research all over the world has proved that what the Chinese believed so many years back was not just a belief; in fact most of it is indeed true. Green tea, with its various medicinal values makes an ideal drink for every individual.
The medicinal goodness of green tea lies in a special component called catechin polyphenols. Green tea is very rich in catechin polyphenols, especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a very effective anti-oxidant and helps in killing the cancer cells. It also helps reduce LDL cholesterol level and controls clotting of blood. EGCG checks the occurrence of heart attacks and strokes by controlling thrombosis (abnormal clotting of blood).
Green tea helps reduce cancer, especially esophageal cancer. It is also very good for women as it reduces the chances of breast cancer. Green tea is also effective in treating rheumatic arthritis, abdominal infections, cardio-vascular diseases, and helps maintain a healthy immune system. Green tea helps reduce the LDL cholesterol level, thus reducing the risk of heart attack in elderly people. It also makes a good drink for the diet conscious young people as green tea has almost no calories. It also helps in burning up more calories than caffeine.
Green tea is also a good way to take care of one’s teeth as green tea kills most tooth decaying bacteria, thus preventing teeth decay, plaque or bad breath. Latest research show that green tea is also very good for the skin and regular drinking of green tea can result in glowing, spotless skin.
Other uses of green tea are that it is used as an effective treatment for flatulence, indigestion and depression. It helps cure mild cold and fever also. Green tea is often used as an astringent to treat minor cuts and bleeding. It also helps control blood sugar level in the body and thus checks diabetes. Tests have shown that people who drink 8-10 cups of green tea daily are less likely to have diabetes or liver problems. Apart from all these benefits, Green tea helps burn excessive calories and thus helps reduce weight.
