Green tea

Green tea is derived from the leaves and buds of the evergreen shrub, Camellia sinensis. Originating in China over 4000 years ago, its popularity has spread to other Asian countries and worldwide too. This beverage has a multitude of uses from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer.

Green tea is prepared by steaming, pan-frying and then drying the leaves. This process helps in retaining important molecules called polyphenols antioxidant which gives the tea its ethereal quality. Other teas such as black tea and oolong tea involve processes in which the leaves are fermented (black tea) or partially fermented (oolong tea).

Green tea can cause mild reductions in blood sugar levels and may lower the risk of developing type II diabetes.Research indicates that green tea and its extract can safely enhance thermogenics and promote fat burning in the body without increasing the heart rate as it contains a compound called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The chemical antioxidant “catechin” in the tea can destroy bacteria and viruses that cause throat infections and various dental conditions.
