Green tea comes from the same ever­green shrub that black tea comes from.  It is obtained by light steam­ing of fresh tea leaves.

Before we give guid­ance on the uses and all ben­e­fits of green tea, lets look at why green tea is the most ener­giz­ing antiox­i­dant. Unlike other teas, such as black tea, green tea is not fer­mented, which gives it fresh potent and antiox­i­dant prop­er­ties, since fer­men­ta­tion destroys many of the health ben­e­fits con­tained within the tea leaves. Hence, green tea is more supreme than other green teas.

Poly phe­nols in green tea enhances the body’s antiox­i­dant enzymes includ­ing glu­tathione. This may be help­ful in the treat­ment of arthri­tis. Glu­tathione has been proven to reduce inflam­ma­tion also car­ti­lage break­down. Drink­ing green tea pro­tects against many other dis­eases that may be caused by free radicles.

The antiox­i­dant effects of green tea may also play an impor­tant role in low­er­ing the risk of devel­op­ing can­cer of the diges­tive sys­tem, prostate can­cer, and cer­vi­cal cancer.

Menopausal symp­toms, such as  hot flashes can be reduced by drink­ing this nat­ural bev­er­age as it may also help to increase oestro­gen lev­els due to pres­ence of “phyto oestrogen”.

Some research indi­cates that tooth decay can be pre­vented by the use of green tea, due to small amount of flu­o­ride that is present in the leaves.

 

 Many stud­ies by var­i­ous researchers have shown that green tea has been shown to be 100 times more pow­er­ful than Vit­a­min C, and up to twenty times more pow­er­ful than Vit­a­min E, as an antiox­i­dant. Antiox­i­dants neu­tral­ize and stop free rad­i­cals, which are highly reac­tive chem­i­cal sub­stances that dam­age cells con­tain­ing the body’s DNA, lead­ing to pre­ma­ture age­ing and dis­eases. You need antiox­i­dants to mop up free rad­i­cals, thus slow­ing down dam­ag­ing effects on the inside.

Lets take a look at what green tea can do to reduce “bad” cho­les­terol lev­els — it has been shown to reduce the dam­age caused by LDL (bad) cho­les­terol, which leaves plaque effect on your arte­r­ial walls. This build up of plaque can induce heart attacks if left unchecked.
