Green tea, which has been processed in a way that allows for very little oxidation to occur, is regarded as the “genuine” form of tea. The fact that green tea contains a high concentration of catechin polyphenols, such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), is what many experts believe to be the beverage’s most important health benefit. EGCG is a potent antioxidant that stops the growth of cancer cells and kills cancer cells without causing damage to healthy body tissues. Additionally, it is believed that the chemical compounds found in green tea are effective in reducing LDL cholesterol levels and preventing the abnormal formation of blood clots.
The use of green tea may be beneficial because it acts as a glucose regulator, which means that it reduces the rate at which blood sugar levels increase after eating. It achieves this result by inhibiting the activity of a specific digestive enzyme known as amylase. After a meal, an increase in a person’s blood sugar level is likely to occur as a direct result of the breakdown of starches, which are classified as carbs. Green tea, together with chromium and potentially a vanadyl supplement, may provide the missing link in correct glucose regulation. This new information is really interesting.
It is a special variety of tea that offers many benefits more than any other variety. In order for you to have the best cup of green tea, here are some tips on buying green tea:
- Buy it in isolation. This is the best route to go if you have conclusively tied a result to one particular ingredient.
- Buy a trendy fat burner that contains a good quantity of green tea in its formulation. Containing a hearty dose of green tea is Xenadrine EFX. There are also lots of other products that have the same content as well. Be sure to look at the content of the product before buying it. Make sure that it has the content that will be able to keep you fit and healthy.
- Drinking green tea is more advisable rather than drinking coffee or any kind of tea. You really don’t have to spend lots of money to get these things in your system. Coffee brings hypertension and infects certain glands in your system. It is recommended even by some physicians to intake green tea rather than coffee.
Aside from the tips on buying green tea, I think it’s fair to say that the best green teas come from China, after all, they’ve been producing tea for hundreds of years. Green teas are made for the masses. Some of the best green teas of china are Gunpowder, Young Hyson, Chunmee – excellent teas and economical, Lung Ching – a great favorite around the world with good reason, the charming tiny snail-like leaf of Bi-Lo Chun is one that is gaining favor in the U.S. and the other lesser green teas known that we have been fortunate enough to get are Huang Shan Mao Feng, Tianmu Qing Ding, and Tianmu Yunding – all highly recommended.
You should start buying your greens soon after the spring harvest in May and June. Place them in airtight containers and they will last for months without breaking down. Luckily for us, so far away from China, adding a little more green tea will help when time comes that we get a bit older and in more need of a clean bill of health.
