Health benefits of organic green tea

Posted by Eunice

It's all over the news: green tea for weight loss, green tea to prevent cancer, it suppresses headaches and depression, high cholesterol, cardiovascular diseases, the list goes on. In this article, I break down some of the benefits of organic green tea and why you should have at least a cup a day.

What is organic green tea?

Description

Green tea originates in China, and has been associated with cultures in the Middle East, Japan and South Korea.

Green tea comes from the plant Camellia sinensis, and is dried, but not fermented. It also has a shorter processing time, keeping the beneficial chemicals intact.

Due to the harmful effects of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, it is more and more common to see it produced without the use of chemicals, resulting in a richer taste and healthier consumption.

Ingredients in green tea

Ingredients

Green tea contains Catechin Polyphenols, which contains powerful oxidants known to fight cancer. Green tea also contains polysaccharides, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Fluoride.

So what does green tea do?

Health benefits of green tea

Some health benefits of green tea include cancer protection, suppressing ageing, restrain the growth of disease causing bacteria, stopping cavities due to its rich fluoride content.

Cancer
 

Catechins in green tea can neutralise cancer-causing free radicals in our system.

Anti-ageing

Polyphenols in green tea are responsible for its wonderful anti-ageing properties. This also gives green tea its slightly bitter taste. Studies have shown that antioxidants help the body get rid of damaging free radicals responsible for the ageing process

Weight loss
 

Green tea enhances your metabolism rate, hence getting rid of the fat stored in your body faster.

Anti-bacterial

Catechins present in green tea prevent bacterial virus from attaching to the cell walls and can be used to treat acne, and protect against colds.

Buying green tea

Purchase of green tea

Maybe you're wondering where you can buy green tea,

Green tea can be bought at your local grocery or health store, in the form of green tea bags, organic tea bags.

Alternatively, you can go to a local tea store where you can smell, feel and taste the tea. Buy a tiny sampling of about three to five green tea varieties and try them out at home. This should give you an idea of your green tea preferences.
