Benefits of Green Tea

 Green Tea

On the morning after a late night I enjoy a cup of green tea but what I'm really after is the warm te bag which works relaxing on tense eyes. I use the tea bag on my entire face before throwing it away when it's gotten cold. Makes my skin feel very smooth. Besides a cup of green tea on tired eyes I consume at least one large cup of green tea each day, usually late evenings after my son has fallen asleep for the day. I experience that green tea is stress-releaving and healsome. Naturally I'm hoping that I will benefit on a daily green tea consumption both short and long-term in senses of keeping diseases and aging away, since active consumption of effective antioxidants will restrain the aging process.

Green tea originates from China more than 4000 years ago where it has been used as a method of traditional medicine to help everything from controlling bleeding to regulate the blood sugar and promoting digestion. Green tea has medical qualities acting as a stimulant, curing blotchiness, quenching thirst, eliminating indigestion, curing beriberi disease, preventing fatigue and improving urinary and brain function.

Green tea can also have a positive effect on the five vital organs, especially the heart and tea is credited without scientific evidence on a wide variety of health benefits such as treating multiple scleroris, preventing the degration of cell membranes by neutralizing the spread of free radicals which occur during oxidation process and stopping certain neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

Other discovered benefits include effective burning of calories and the prevention of food poisoning because of its ability to destroy bacteria.

Green tea is natural, herbal and 100% free from side effects. Anti-aging is the reward that if applied regularly on the body for cleaning the skin, green tea can give the skin a look of energetic.

The absorbed catechins reduced oxidative stress in the eye for up to 20 hours, suggesting that green tea may be effective in preventing glaucoma and other diseases of the eye.
    • In a study performed at the Israel Institute of Technology, it was shown that the main antioxidant polyphenol of green tea extract, EGCG, when fed to mice induced with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, helped to protect brain cells from dying, as well as 'rescuing' already damaged neurons in the brain, a phenomenon called neurorescue or neurorestoration. The findings of the study, led by Dr. Silvia Mandell, were presented at the Fourth International Scientific Symposium on Tea and Human Health in Washington D.C., in 2007. Resulting tests underway in China, under the auspices of the Michael J. Fox Foundation, are being held on early Parkinson's patients.
