What makes green tea healthy

Already more than 5000 years in China, green tea has been drunk. The popular hot drink in Asia are traditionally ascribed healing and restorative powers. Meanwhile, scientific studies confirm some positive effects of green tea, which is also becoming more popular in Europe. Sun Tea is probably the growth of cancer cells and protect against .cardiovascular disease

Green Tea: the way to get Green Life Green tea contains many vitamins, minerals and trace elements such as B vitamins, calcium and zinc. These vital nutrients are only found in low concentrations in green tea. Among the more interesting quantity ingredients include flavonoids. Flavonoids are secondary plant metabolites, accounting for about 30 to 34% of the dry weight of green .tea These dyes of plants occur not only in green and black tea, but also in many fruits and vegetables, such as apples and

kale. Among the presumed effects of protection against infection is caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi. They may also prevent certain types of cancer prior to and strengthen .the heart, circulatory and immune systems Study: Longer life by green tea Researchers at Tohoku University in Japan found in a study that the mortality rate decreased by abundant green tea consumption. Study participants had such a region in northwestern Japan who drank at least five cups of green tea daily, reduced by about 10 percent mortality rate than those who took more than one cup a day to themselves. The scientists attribute the difference mainly due to a decreased incidence of cardiovascular disease. The exact mechanism is not yet sufficiently clarified. Presumably, the flavonoids in green tea has a positive influence on the heart and blood .vessels by preventing arterial calcification Recent studies, however, doubt on the cardiac and vascular protective effects, so that further research is needed. In addition, the flavonoid content of green tea is subject to large fluctuations. So it can not be assumed to be always .consistent effect Flavonoids: protection for the heart and circulatory The most important feature of flavonoids is their so-called antioxidant effects. This prevents free radicals react freely in the body and damage our cells, such as the blood vessels. Free radicals are aggressive oxygen compounds, which are constantly in our environment and in our metabolism. Flavonoids and other antioxidants such as vitamin C and E can intercept free radicals. They can help to protect the blood vessels and prevent hardening of the arteries, high .blood pressure and heart attack Green tea: Possible protection against cancer Japanese researchers have found that the flavonoid may epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) in green tea selectively attach to existing cancer cells and slows their growth. Hirofumi Tachibana and other researchers from Kyushu

University in Fukuoka in lung cancer cells showed that experience a growth inhibitory effect of EGCG in several cancer cells at low concentrations. Have the pleasure of two .to three cups of green tea daily could this effect, the http://ourgreenlife.info/?p=721
