Green tea, good for your health
This tea has strong antioxidant properties. Japanese scientists believe that green tea can inhibit the growth of cancer tumours in humans, but especially cancers of the oesophagus, stomach and intestine. As well as this, it has been found to reduce the incidence of heart disease.
The effect of green tea drinking was analysed on 1871 men who lived in Yoshimi, Japan where the most common beverage is green tea. The study found that the tea reduced the incidence of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular diseases in general. It was also shown to improve liver function, therefore providing some protection against liver, colon and lung cancer.
Green tea and weight loss
Another side effect of drinking green tea appears to as an aid for weight loss. This is due to green teas ability to produce thermo genesis.
The body carries 2 types of fat - Brown fat, which sits against the skeleton and yellow fat which collects around our fatty areas and increases as we put weight on. Our brown fat cells act to burn off excess yellow fat when we start to loose weight, an activity that creates heat and is known as Thermo genesis.
Green tea contains a group of components which, it is thought, increase the metabolic activity of brown fat and helps it to burn off yellow fat more quickly.
Other benefits of green tea
