The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times. It is made using the leaves of the Chinese Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are then applied to heat quickly after picking which minimizes oxidation. This is thought to give the green tea it’s many benefits.

2. It has been known to stabilise your cholesterol levels.

3. It has shown significant reductions in deaths of cardiovascular disease.

4. It can boost your immune system and aid weight loss.

5. It has been effective in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis.

6. It can reduce tooth decay.

7. A recent report has shown that it can also slow the onset of Alzheimers and Parkinsons Disease.

8. It can help fight infections and allergies to the body.

9. They also say it can slow the ageing.

10. The latest news on Green tea is that it can enhance the ability of our brains’ cognitive functions especially on the working memory, a Swiss scientists suggest.Researchers have recommended further study into how green tea can help with cognitive impairments such as dementia.

7 OF THE BEST WAYS TO STORE YOUR TEA…

  1. It’s best to transfer both loose tea and tea bags from a cardboard or paper packet or tub into an air-tight container.
  2. Tins and caddies with tight-fitting lids are good as they can keep out smells and humidity which can affect the tea.
  3. Storing the jars in a dark cupboard will mean the tea will keep well.
  4. You should never keep it in the fridge as there is always the chance that water will get into the packet.
  5. You should always be careful with flavoured teas, as the added flavourings can be very powerful and easily taint other teas nearby.
  6. For loose tea, it is essential that you check that the spoon or scoop that you use is completely dry.
  7. If there is even a drop of moisture on the spoon, the humidity introduced to the interior of the packet or caddy will have an effect on the quality of flavour.

DRINK YOURSELF YOUNG WITH THESE 3 DRINKS…

Drink yourself young with the following three drinks –

  1. Green Tea – In a Chineses study, people who drank three or more cups of green tea daily were biologically five years younger than those who drank less than a cup a day. According to StyleCraze, a Chinese study showed that men, who consumed green tea, had their cells aging at a much slower rate than the men who didn’t. Researchers think that the antioxidants in green tea are the reason behind this phenomenon. Green Tea also consists of powerful flavonoids that contribute to healthy and youthful knees. They also help reduce cartilage and collagen destruction in arthritic joints. This helps prevent both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Green tea, being an excellent antioxidant moisturizer, can cleanse your skin and make it radiant. Just dab a cotton ball into the remaining green tea in your cup and apply it on your skin.
  2. Cocoa – A cup of cocoa every day may help to maintain brain health, according to research. This is thought to be due to the naturally high levels of antioxidants it contains, known as flavanols. According to Natural Health News scientists from Seoul National University in Korea believe that cocoa has anti-aging benefits and say that their tests show that the antioxidants in cacao may actually help to prevent wrinkles. According to the researchers, cacao boosts skin by increasing blood flow and improving skin density and hydration. 
  3. Ordinary Tea –  Drinking three cups a day can reduce the risk of heart disease by 11% and lessen the build-up of plaque in the arteries, thanks to its high level of flavonoids. The powerful Antioxidants and antibacterial properties help immune system stay healthy, prevent signs of early aging, maintain weight, help control cholesterol levels and provides protection against cancer. White tea is the least processed tea over green and black tea and thus has the highest levels of anti-oxidants.
