Green Tea (Camellia sinensis), claimed as “The Natural Secret for a Healthier Life” has been used as a medicine in China for about 4700 years ago, using it to treat everything from headache to depression. Japan and China are number one users and producers of green tea.
Green tea, oolong and black teas are actually derived from the leaves of the camellia sinensis plant. Only the way they were processed made their characteristics different from each other. Green tea leaves are steamed which leave the color of the tea green, and prevent the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) compound from being oxidized. Green tea is rich in EGCG, a powerful antioxidant. EGCG is twice as powerful as resveratrol, a healthy compound found in red wines EGCG is proved to be the reason why the rate of heart disease among Japanese is quite low even though approximately 75 percent are smokers.
The health benefits from green tea are due to its oxidizing properties that come from its caffeine, Catechin Polyphenols and Theonine. The various health benefits are: boosts the immune system, boosts mental alertness, possible anti-diabetes effect, antibiotic effects, anti-cancer properties, increase metabolic rate, lowers chances of cognitive impairment, lowers stress hormone levels, effects on bad breath, effects on iron overload disorders, effects on bacterial and fungal infections, effects on HIV, anti-venom effects, prevents stroke, promotes cardiovascular health, anogenital warts, with antidepressant properties, good for rheumatoid arthritis, good for weight loss and lowers cholesterol.
