Green tea may be a possible solution,
for all those suffering from conditions of high cholesterol. Green tea is widely known as a possible solution for cholesterol reducing properties. Cholesterol is a word feared by most Americans nationwide. Many studies and researchers show that green tea may become one of the most popular miracles in the world toward the prevention of diseases and various illnesses. Green tea’s increasing popularity has been seen in commercials, billboards, and radio ads.
Not only does green tea have a profound effect on cholesterol, it can also prevent cancer. There are antioxidants in green tea that are useful for the destruction of free radicals. Green tea reduces the amount of stomach cancer in Chinese men and women by as much as 60%. A Purdue study notes that green tea may be helpful in preventing cancer by stopping cancer cells. The EGCG in green tea may help to lower the average heart rate of many Japanese men. Also, green tea seems to lower the problem of high blood pressure that most Americans face.
For over 4,000 years, the benefits of green tea have been treating headaches and depression, not only high cholesterol. Many of the following illnesses mentioned may be subsided with the daily consumption of green tea: rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, infection, and impaired immune function. Green tea contains many catechin polyphenols, the key to green tea’s success. The EGCG is one of the elements that prevent cancer. Polyphenols cancel out the average American fatty diets and the smoking habits of most people.
There is also a report that green tea may play a possible role in lowering the weight for some individuals. Men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned more calories than men on regular caffeine.
Green tea seems to also play a role in preventing tooth decay because of the fluoride found in green tea.
What is the difference between green tea and the other green teas? They all come from the same plant, but there are different ways in which they are processed. Green tea leaves are steamed so they don’t allow the EGCG to oxidize, while the other tea leaves allow the other leaves to be oxidized losing all of their medicinal properties.
