Belizegial's Health Tip

7 Reasons to Drink Green Tea

The steady stream of good news about green tea is getting so hard to ignore that even java junkies are beginning to sip mugs of the deceptively delicate brew. You'd think the daily dose of disease-fighting, inflammation-squelching antioxidants - long linked with heart protection - would be enough incentive, but wait, there's more! Lots more.

CUT YOUR CANCER RISK - several polyphenols - the potent antioxidants green tea's famous for seem to help keep cancer cells from gaining a foothold in the body, by discouraging their growth and then squelching the creation of new blood vessels that tumors need to thrive. Study after study has found that people who regularly drink green tea reduce their risk of breast, stomach, esophagus, colon, and/or prostate cancer.

SOOTHE YOUR SKIN - Got a cut, scrape, or bite, and a little leftover green tea? Soak a cotton pad in it. The tea is a natural antiseptic that relieves itching and swelling. Try it on inflamed breakouts and blemishes, sunburns, even puffy eyelids. And that's not all. In the lab, green tea helps block sun-triggered skin cancer, whether you drink it or apply it directly to the skin - which is why you're seeing green tea in more and more sunscreens and moisturizers.

STEADY YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE - Having healthy blood pressure - meaning below 120/80 - is one thing. Keeping it that way is quite another. But people who sip just half a cup a day are almost 50 percent less likely to wind up with hypertension than non-drinkers. Credit goes to the polyphenols again (especially one known as ECGC). They help keep blood vessels from contracting and raising blood pressure.

PROTECT YOUR MEMORY, OR YOUR MOM'S - Green tea may also keep the brain from turning fuzzy. Getting-up-there adults who drink at least two cups a day are half as likely to develop cognitive problems as those who drink less. Why? It appears that the tea's big dose of antioxidants fights the free-radical damage to brain nerves seen in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

STAY YOUNG - The younger and healthier your arteries are, the younger and healthier you are. So fight plaque build-up in your blood vessels, which ups the risk of heart disease and stroke, adds years to your biological age (or RealAge), and saps your energy too. How much green tea does this vital job take? About 10 ounces a day, which also deters your body from absorbing artery-clogging fat and cholesterol.
LOSE WEIGHT - Oh yeah, one more thing. Turns out that green tea speeds up your body's calorie-burning process. In the every-little-bit-counts department, this is good news!

Now all this good news deserves a Saturday Smile

Recently I bought green tea. Reading this post, I am glad I did. I knew it had antioxidants but it is so beneficial, I wasn't awareof that.

It`s amazing all the things green tea is good for. I think I have some around here. I was never fussy on the taste of it. Tasted a bit like hay to me. Not that I eat much hay LOL
I think I really should start drinking it anyway though. Maybe just have to get used to it. I like your iguana!

Hey everyone! It's sunday and the livin' is easy.

Yes, green tea is very beneficial to your health and I've started drinking this on a daily basis. I know the taste is a little different so I usually mix in some honey for sweetness. And yes, even Topper can benefit from Green Tea. LOL

Happy Sunday to all,
Enid

I don't really care for the green tea, but I do drink regular tea, both hot and iced. I know it has most if not all the benefits of the green tea.

Love your iguana! I used to have a 3-ft. iguana but she died of old age several years ago. Iggy was a part of our family for years.

Have a great Monday!

Hugs,

Diane

I like green tea, but it has to be light. Not steeped long. I know I lose some of the benefits by drinking it that way.
