5 Amazing Benefits of Green Tea
Posted on: 03-04-2017 , 12:29:PM | DY365 Bureau

Full of Antioxidants

Antioxidants, why are they good for us anyway? Well, when we eat, our bodies have to turn food into energy. As a result, this generates some byproducts within our bodies calledfree radicals. These chemicals are pretty awful, and can severely damage our bodies through a process called oxidation. Free radicals are also, theoretically, the main driver inaging.

But have no fear, we can combat the negative effect of free radicals by consuming antioxidants, and one great way to do this is by drinking green tea.

Fights Cancer

Green tea has been shown to activate our internaldetoxificationenzymes which may hinder tumor growth. Many teas are packed with antioxidants, but the direct mechanism of cancer prevention hasn’t yet been fully established. The good news is there is a relationship between cancer prevention and tea consumption.

According to livescience.com, an ongoing study of women with breast cancer showed thatpolyphenols in green tea may slow down proteins that are part of tumor cell growth.

Brain Enhancement

Well according to a study from the Department of Psychiatry, University of Basel Switzerland, sipping on green teaenhances memory. Until last year, the effects of green tea oncognitive functionwere speculative, but with the improvements in functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI), Dr. Stefan Borgwardt could view the increased connectivity in the cortices of the brain after consumption of green tea. Specifically, green tea drinkers showed increased connectivity in key parts of the brain associated with memory.

Fat Burner

“Green tea has thermogenicproperties and promotes fat oxidation beyond that explained by its caffeine content per se”. That’s what Dr. Abdul G. Dulloo, author of a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition said to WebMD.

While caffeine has been shown to help burn fat and increase metabolism, it’s good to know the effect of green tea on metabolism is much more than that, because simply ramping up caffeine intake will definitely give you the jitters.

Another piece in the Journal of Advances in Nutrition mentioned that a number of studies have witnessed how green tea can improvefat burning.

While overall research is still limited, given the health benefits of green tea, if it is a fat burner to boot, why not?

We already know that green tea is full of antioxidants, is good for both the heart and brain, and can help fight cancer, so why shouldn’t we drink it?

Youthfulness

As I mentioned earlier, green tea is packed with antioxidants, and one major cause of aging is oxidation by free radicals. According to the San Francisco Gate, astudyfrom the University of Campbell found that Japanese practitioners of a green tea ceremony showed longer life spans.

Not only this, but the anti-inflammatory and fat burning aspects mentioned above, and resultant better health, would likely improve life span as well.

Free radicals also affect our skin, and the antioxidants in green tea may help inhibit free radicals from breaking downcollagen, the protein in our skin that keeps us looking young.
