WHAT IS GREEN TEA?
With its vibrant floral and grassy flavours, green tea is unarguably the most delicate, pleasant, refreshing and popular tea. Its origin began in China, tracing back to the third millennium BC. Just like black tea, green tea derives from the leaves of Camellia sinensis. If they are quickly heated - by pan firing or steaming - the leaves are unfermented, which minimises oxidation and helps retain essential molecules called polyphenols. Together with caffeine, they are responsible for many health benefits attributed to the beloved beverage and have been widely used as antioxidants in disease treatment.
Green tea is so good for you that it constantly unveils new studies that explore the relationship between the beverage and a variety of conditions. In fact, green tea:
- Supports brain health: Caffeine and an amino acid (L-theanine) found in the beverage both affect brain function by enhancing working memory and cognitive performance which eventually reduces the risk of illness such as dementia or Alzheimer
- Is good for the heart: Packed with antioxidants, consuming green tea improves blood circulation and regulates blood sugar levels, which has a protective effect against cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and strokes.
- May prevent cancer: Due to its important composition of polyphenols, green tea can prevent the growth of cancerous cells including prostate, colorectal, or breast cancers.
- Promotes weight-loss: Essentially, green tea accelerates fat oxidation, which will support the liver in transforming food and fat into energy, and boost athletic performance and endurance.
- Prevents skin from ageing: The polyphenol protects the skin from the effects of ultraviolet light, which not only prevents the development of wrinkles, but also offers skin cancer-fighting and anti-inflammatory benefits.
