Introduction:

Introduction For over 400 years, green tea has been used to aid patients in East Asian countries with wounds, high sugar levels,  indigestion, and an array of conditions and afflictions.  But it is only  recently that the world has started to recognize its life changing properties, and with  thousands of surveys and research studies being conducted on its effects, green tea has  started to reveal the full extent of its benefits on both physical and mental health . So, what are the health benefits of green tea ? An excellent question! The truth is, green tea can guard your body against a number of  dangerous and potentially fatal diseases such as cancer , heart attack , arthiritis and glaucoma, among others.

How can green tea cure cancer?:

How can green tea cure cancer? Green tea is not fermented the way black tea is . Instead green tea leaves are withered and  steamed, providing for the maximum preservation of its anti-oxidants, called catechins . Green  tea is very rich in one particular catechin , epigallocatechin gallate (or EGCG). Studies have  shown that high levels of EGCG inhibit the growth of and even kill cancer cells. A study published in 1994 by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed that the risk  of eosophageal cancer was lower by almost 60 percent in Chinese men and women due to the  consumption of green tea. At the Sixth International Conference on Frontiers in Cancer  Prevention, sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, research was cited  stating that in infected rats, a certain standardized preparation of green tea had reduced the  growth of colorectal tumours . Still another study done at Purdue University determined that  green tea could kill different types of cancer cells, like  breast, prostate, colon and   neuroblastoma , without having any harmful effect on the rest of the body . But there is a catch . The conclusions reached by most of these studies were largely based on  animals, and even when the studies were conducted on humans, it was done predominantly on East  Asians . Thus green tea/cancer theories have been challenged based on the reasoning that social  and cultural differences might have been as relevant to the results as the consumption of green  tea .

Can green tea cure heart diseases?:

Can green tea cure heart diseases? ECGC has been proven effective in stopping the formation of abnormal blot clots, which is the  leading cause of heart attacks and strokes . A Dutch study involving over 3000 people asserted  that the consumption of green tea reduced the clogging of blood vessels in the heart, also  known as atherosclerosis . In addition, according to the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation,  green tea can improve blood vessel function just 30 minutes after its ingestion . Green tea  possesses high quantities of flavonoids , which are powerful anti-oxidants that keep the heart  arteries pliable and relaxed, and allows the blood to flow more freely . So, we can safely  conclude that green tea does help in preventing cancer .

Does green tea help in losing weight?:

Does green tea help in losing weight? Research has shown that green tea can have some effect on weight loss, increasing metabolism  and supressing appetite . The combination of caffeine and ECGC in green tea speeds up the  process of burning calories. According to a study published by the American Journal of Clinical  Nutrition in 2005, ” Daily consumption of tea containing 690 mg catechins for 12 wk reduced  body fat, which suggests that the ingestion of catechins might be useful in the prevention and  improvement of lifestyle-related diseases, mainly obesity.” Although green tea may not have  major effects on weight by itself, it certainly aids the process of weight loss and is an  excellent addition to one’s diet .

In which other diseases can green tea help?:

In which other diseases can green tea help? In addition, studies have suggested that green tea can be effective in reducing the risk of diseases like glaucoma , cognitive impairment, arthritis , cholesterol ,  common bacterial and viral infections, and many more . So consider adding green tea to your diet if you haven’t already done so. It is a simple and effective step to improve your health, and even if you don’t like its taste in the beginning, soon you will develop a taste for it .
