BENEFITS OF GREEN TEA

  • Reduces high blood pressure. Drinking green tea represses angiotensin II which leads to high blood pressure.

  • Lowering cholesterol is another green tea benefit.

  • Green tea polyphenols and polysaccharides are effective in lowering blood sugar.

  • Fights cancer. There have been many studies that have shown that green tea catechins are effective at preventing cancer.

  • Green tea boosts the immune system because of its high concentrations of polyphenols and flavonoids.

What makes green tea benefits so powerful?

  • There are four primary polyphenols in green tea and they are often collectively referred to as catechins. Catechins are  powerful antioxidants that have been shown in recent studies to fight viruses, slow aging, and have a beneficial effect on health.

  • Clinical tests have shown that catechins in green tea destroy free radicals and have far-reaching positive effects on the entire body. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules and fragments of molecules that can damage the body at the cellular level leaving the body susceptible to cancer, heart disease, and many other degenerative diseases.

  • Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant found in green tea, is at least 100 more times more effective than vitamin C and 25 times more effective than vitamin E at protecting cells and DNA from damage believed to be linked to cancer, heart disease and other serious illnesses. This antioxidant has twice the benefits of resveratrol, found in red wine. 

Researchers at the University of Murcia in Spain and the John Innes Center in Norwich, England researched green tea benefits. They have shown that  EGCG in green tea prevents cancer cells from growing by binding to a specific enzyme.

"We have shown for the first time that EGCG, which is present in green tea at relatively high concentrations, inhibits the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR), which is a recognized, established target for anti-cancer drugs, " Professor Roger Thorneley, of JIC, told Reuters.
