    How Green Tea Factory Is More Effective

    The main cancer suppressor in Chunmee Tea is tea polyphenols, which can significantly inhibit cell mutations, which can sometimes cause cancer. In addition, tea can block the synthesis of nitroso compounds. It was found that the blocking rate of green tea was above 90%, followed by pressed tea, brick tea, scented tea, oolong tea and black tea. The higher the content of tea polyphenols in tea, the stronger the blocking ability, and the blocking ability decreases after the tea is left at room temperature for a long time. In addition, tea is also rich in vitamin c and vitamin e, and it also has an anti-cancer effect. Tea anti-cancer and anti-cancer may be the result of the synergistic effect of these substances. Animal experiments have confirmed that tea can significantly inhibit the effects of carcinogens in the human body and improve the antioxidant capacity of the body's organs. Tea polyphenols and several catechins have obvious antimutagenic effects, and have a significant blocking function on the occurrence of cancer. Green Tea Factory's tea can prevent the cancerous reaction of oral mucosal precancerous lesions.

    Introduction Of Gunpowder Tea Brewing

       I want to make a good cup of China Green Tea, very particular. The quality of the tea itself is important, but the influence of water quality, tea sets, methods, time, water temperature and other factors on tea products cannot be underestimated. Ancient Chinese tea works have studied the influence of water at different water temperatures on tea. For example, Cai Xiang’s Tea Record in the Song Dynasty mentioned “uncooked soup”, “overcooked soup” and “waiting soup”, as well as the Ming Dynasty Xu Ci Shu mentioned "Shui Nen", "Shui Lao" and "Shui Shi" in "Cha Shu". Although they are called differently, they achieve the same goal by different routes.    The so-called "uncooked soup" is also "watery and tender", which means that the water temperature is approximately 60°C-65°C when the water is not boiled. At this time, because the water temperature is too low, even the fresh green tea, the inner quality of the tea is not easy to brew, the tea lacks water absorption, the aroma and taste are weak, and it is easy to float on the water, so it is neither convenient to drink nor delicious. QQ screenshot 20160805161009.jpg    "Shui Lao" also means "over-cooked soup", which refers to water that has been boiled completely or has been boiled for a period of time. At this time, the water temperature is about 100°C, and brewing green tea will "hot-cook" relatively delicate green tea leaves. The higher the water temperature, the greater the solubility, and the stronger the tea soup. The green tea soup is easy to turn yellow, and the release of large amounts of tea tannins and caffeine will cause the tea to taste strong and bitter.    The several kinds of water with temperature mentioned here are suitable for brewing Gunpowder Tea. The so-called "water at that time" refers to "behind the crab's eyes, there is a slight wave in the water, it is for the time", the state of a slight boiling phenomenon just after the hot water bubbled.    The water temperature at this time is roughly between 80°C and 95°C. It is recommended to subdivide the water temperature according to the age of tea leaves. For example, if it is a relatively tender Mingqian tea, boil the water to 90°C. After the tea is ready, the water temperature will drop a lot. At about 80°C, the carbon dioxide in the water is not completely volatilized, the theanine in the tea is completely released, the vitamin C is preserved relatively, the release of tea tannins and caffeine is less, the aroma is fresh and high, and the tea tastes fresh and sweet.
  5. How do you judge the quality of green tea? Let's identify with the manufacturer of Green Tea 3505. Each green tea has a different appearance. Some are cord-shaped, some are needle-shaped, and some are pointed. A good green tea has its own unique side no matter from the appearance or the inside. To identify the pros and cons of green tea, we must also identify the shape, color and aroma of dry tea. 1. The shape of dry tea Good green tea is selected in the process of processing into finished tea. Its shape must be uniform in size and length, and the dry tea has high tenderness and dryness. The tea package is clean and free of tea stalks, fish leaves and other sundries when taking the tea to make a drink. Second, the color of dry tea Good green tea and dry tea have the same color. Even if the tea leaves are light green in the middle and dark green on the side of the leaves, this is directly related to the tea processing technology. No debris will appear in the dry tea. 3. Dry tea aroma Smelling the fragrance of tea is a kind of spiritual enjoyment. Fresh green tea has a positive aroma. The fragrance of green tea is divided into: green grass fragrance, chestnut fragrance, cooked fragrance. When smelling dry tea, you can feel: "I have not tasted the nectar, first smell the holy fragrance." It is a faint tea fragrance that lasts for a long time. For some green tea, because the processing technology does not meet the standard, the pot temperature is not well grasped during the frying process, and a burnt smell will appear. This directly affects the quality of Chinese Green Tea.

    What Makes Gunpowder Tea Special

    The difference between black tea and China Green Tea: the water temperature is different    Premium green tea, especially the famous green tea with tender buds and leaves, is generally brewed with boiling water at around 80°. Too high water temperature can easily destroy the vitamin C in the tea, and the caffeine is easy to precipitate, causing the tea soup to turn yellow and have a bitter taste.   When brewing various scented tea, black tea, and low-to-medium-grade green tea, you need to use 90-100° boiling water to brew. The water temperature is low, the effective ingredients in the tea are less precipitated, and the tea taste is light.   The difference between black tea and green tea 2: The color of the tea soup is different    A few minutes before brewing, the black tea is light brown; the green tea soup is clear green. After brewing for more than half an hour, black tea is brown, and good green tea is still green.    Green tea is brighter in color, green or dark green, and black tea is light brown or dark brown.   The difference between black tea and green tea 3: the production process is different    black tea:    A fully fermented tea with a degree of fermentation of 80 to 90%. The production process does not kill the cyanines, but directly withers, kneads and cuts, and then undergoes complete fermentation, so that the tea polyphenols contained in the tea are oxidized into thearubicin, thus forming the dark red tea and red tea soup that are unique to black tea.   The dry tea color and the brewed tea soup are mainly red, so it is called black tea. Black tea was called "black tea" when it was first created.    Black tea undergoes a chemical reaction during the processing process. The chemical components in the fresh leaves have changed greatly, and the tea polyphenols have been reduced by more than 90%, resulting in new theaflavins and theaflavins.   The dry tea color of black tea and the brewed tea soup are mainly red Aroma substances have increased from more than 50 in fresh leaves to more than 300. Some caffeine, catechins and theaflavins are complexed to form delicious complexes, thus forming black tea, red soup, red leaves and sweet and mellow Quality characteristics.   Green tea:    The tea leaves are made without any fermentation process, using suitable tea tree shoots as raw materials, and directly after picking, through typical processes such as finishing, rolling and drying. The color and luster of the dry tea, the tea soup and the bottom of the leaves after brewing are mainly green, hence the name.    Green tea tastes fresh and mellow, refreshing and pleasant. Due to different methods of construction, it can be divided into fried green tea made by pot frying, such as Longjing and Biluochun, and steamed Gunpowder Tea cooked with high-temperature steam, such as Japanese Sencha and Yulu. The former has a strong aroma and the latter has a fresh and green feel.
  7. We know that there are many factors that affect the quality of Chinese Green Tea, including climate, post-production technology, storage methods, etc. What is the quality of the finished tea? 1. Natural environment For the production of high-quality green tea, climate and soil are very important. The "Famous Mountain Famous Tea" that has been heard since ancient times refers to the natural environment for planting good tea trees. 2. Tea tree type Tea varieties have advantages and disadvantages. Good tea varieties can easily produce good tea, while inferior tea varieties can only have advantages in terms of yield or ease of cultivation. In addition, which variety is suitable for which type of tea is also important. For example, the Assam variety is very suitable for the production of black tea, but not suitable for the production of oolong tea. 3. Tree age Tea gardens trimmed into bushes are of poor quality in adulthood, but if properly cared for, maturity will be more likely to show the characteristics of the species, so it should be determined according to the specific circumstances. Hubei green tea manufacturers 4. Fertilize It is a better choice to use organic fertilizer close to the natural ecology, and the product is also good. Efforts are currently being made to promote the Natural Agriculture Law (or Sustainable Agriculture Law). 5. Picking situation The tea green of bud tea should be mainly the bud heart, and the leaf tea should be mainly open leaves. The aging and tenderness should be as consistent as possible. The cuts of the picking branches should be kept intact. During the picking process, care should be taken to keep the broken cuts intact. First oxidize the incomplete cuts. The green tea after fermentation is bound to affect normal fermentation. 6. Season Picking will occur in which season, and choosing the wrong season will cause serious consequences. In the same tea garden, if there is no problem with the variety, it is possible to pick light fermented tea in spring and heavy fermented tea in summer. 7. Climate Good weather can produce good tea, but bad weather can hardly guarantee the quality of tea. Why not wait until the weather is good? Because bad weather sometimes lasts for seven or eight days, the tea green growth does not need to wait for people, so there is a proverb in the tea industry: "Three days in the morning are treasures, and three days later are grass. 8. Time If you pick fried green tea, the early dew is still there; if you pick it too late, there is not enough sunlight and temperature to wither and ferment the tea, and you cannot make tea. Therefore, even in the same tea garden, the time for picking green tea is different, and the price of green tea will also be different. 9. Manufacturing It is often said that there should be a combination of "heaven, earth, and people" in the finished product. The climate is "heaven", the geographical environment is "earth", and manufacturing is "human beings". If there is only good Green Tea 3505 and good weather, the tea-making technology is futile. However, if the first two conditions are not enough, as long as you have a wealth of tea-making technology and experience, you can still try to remedy it.

    Drinking Period Of Gunpowder Green Tea

    Can I still drink Gunpowder Green Tea after 2 years? It is recommended to stop drinking it to avoid adverse effects on the body. If the expired Gunpowder Green Tea is stored for a long time, it will breed mold and bacteria, which will cause the tea to rot and cause a lot of bacteria. If you continue to drink it, it is likely to cause gastrointestinal discomfort. Gunpowder Green Tea that has passed its shelf life has other uses. Gunpowder Green Tea has a good adsorption effect. Putting expired Gunpowder Green Tea in the refrigerator or drawer can well absorb peculiar smell and remove moisture. The expired Gunpowder Green Tea can also be brewed into tea to rinse the laundry and restore the original color to the clothes. The fully used expired Gunpowder Green Tea can also be used as a nourishment for green plants to promote plant growth. How long is the shelf life of Gunpowder Green Tea Gunpowder Green Tea is a lightly fermented tea, a variety of yellow tea. The processing technology is similar to that of green tea, except that the production process has one more stuffy yellowing process than green tea, but the shelf life has not changed much because of the stuffy yellow. The shelf life of Gunpowder Green Tea is generally about 1 year, so try to drink it within this period. Gunpowder Green Tea storage method When storing China Green Tea-Gunpowder Green Tea, you can put a preservative in the tea bag and seal it to isolate the air; the water content should be controlled within a certain range, and the best water content is generally around 7%; in general It is better to keep the tea leaves at 5-6°C (control the temperature around 5°C, and keep the quality of tea leaves without "fermentation" or light "fermentation"), because tea leaves can accelerate the oxidation rate under high temperature or normal temperature. It is easy to age, thereby affecting the quality of yellow tea. Therefore, you can put the tea in an aluminum foil bag and then put it in the can, then put a clean plastic bag on the outside and tie it tightly, and store it directly in the refrigerator, and pay attention to avoid refrigerating with other foods to prevent the tea from adsorbing odor .

    Taboos Of Drinking Chinese Green Tea

    1. Avoid tea for the first time Chinese Green Tea may be polluted by pesticides and other harmful substances in the process of planting and processing. There is always some residue on the surface of green tea. Although they are small, they can also be harmful. Therefore, in order to avoid the impact of pesticide residues on health, the first cup of tea should be poured out. Don't drink the first cup of tea just because it doesn't matter. 2. Avoid new tea Green tea differs from other teas in that it does not ferment and can be drunk after being roasted. However, due to the short storage time of tea, which contains more aldehydes and alcohols, it has a strong stimulating effect on gastrointestinal mucosa and is easy to induce stomach diseases. Therefore, we should drink less fresh tea and avoid fresh tea which has been preserved for less than half a month. 3. Special people should avoid drinking green tea Although green tea is usually good for the body, it is not suitable for some special groups. For example, people with cold stomachs should not drink too much green tea, which may cause gastrointestinal discomfort. Patients with neurasthenia and insomnia should not drink tea before going to bed. Breast fed women should also drink less tea, because tea has a convergent effect on breast milk. Green Tea 3505 is also not suitable for drinking during menstruation and pregnancy.

    The Role Of Green Tea 3505 Caffeine

    The caffeine and catechins in Green Tea 3505 are known for their health benefits, but they can also cause side effects in some people, especially in large doses. The role of caffeine Excessive caffeine intake can increase anxiety, interfere with sleep, and cause stomach upset and headaches in some people. Ingesting large amounts of caffeine during pregnancy may even increase the risk of birth defects and miscarriage. According to current research, everyone, including pregnant women, should not consume more than 300 mg of caffeine per day. However, one review looked at more than 400 studies and found that healthy adults who consumed 400 mg of caffeine per day had no side effects. The amount of caffeine in a cup of green tea depends on the amount of tea used and the time the tea leaves are steeped. A study found that the caffeine content of 1 gram of green tea is between 11-20 mg. A serving of tea is usually 1 tablespoon (2 grams) of tea leaves per 1 cup (240 ml) of water. Assuming that each cup of tea is about 1 cup (240 ml), this means that a cup of green tea contains about 22-40 mg of caffeine on average. Catechin may reduce iron absorption The catechins in green tea may reduce your ability to absorb iron from food. In fact, high intake of catechins may cause iron deficiency anemia. Although regular consumption of green tea is not a problem for most healthy people, those at risk for iron deficiency should consider drinking tea between meals and wait at least an hour after eating. Babies, young children, pregnant or menstruating women, and people with internal bleeding or who are on dialysis are at increased risk of iron deficiency. The catechins in Chinese Green Tea can also interfere with certain drugs and reduce their effectiveness. For example, research suggests that green tea may inhibit the effectiveness of certain heart and blood pressure medications. Drinking green tea may also reduce the effectiveness of certain medications used to treat anxiety and depression. When people take green tea supplements, toxic effects are most common. The concentration of catechins in green tea supplements is much higher than that of green tea itself. Drink in moderation, green tea is safe for most people. If you are iron deficient, or are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medication for anxiety or heart disease, you may want to limit or avoid it.

    Gunpowder Green Tea Contains Polyphenols

    Polyphenols are compounds composed of multiple phenol units. They are naturally present in various foods we eat every day. Some of the best sources of polyphenols include olives, celery, dark chocolate, red wine, hazelnuts, China Green Tea, apples, plums, red onions and spinach. See this complete list of the 100 richest dietary sources of polyphenols. There are many types of polyphenols in our food, such as tannins, flavonoids, isoflavones, catechins, hydroquinones, lignans and anthocyanins. Why do we need polyphenols? Modern scientific research shows that polyphenols are essential for a healthy diet. In the past 20 years, many studies have been conducted on their effects on our bodies. There is evidence that these compounds may help prevent harmful diseases such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and cancer. It is known that polyphenols have strong antioxidant properties. This means they can protect our body cells from oxidation and help prevent cell death. The effectiveness of these polyphenols depends on the amount consumed and how well your body absorbs, stores and uses them. However, there is no recommended level of dietary consumption because their absorption varies from person to person. All these teas in tea It is the most widely consumed beverage in the world, second only to water. Various teas (such as green tea, black tea and oolong tea) contain a lot of polyphenols. According to reports, the green tea contains the highest concentration of these powerful polyphenols. An article from the University of Maryland Medical Center suggests that the antioxidant effects of polyphenols in green tea may be better than those in vitamin C. The polyphenols found in green tea are called catechins. Green tea is believed to have six different catechin compounds, of which EGCG has the highest content and is the most widely studied. In addition, EGCG is the most active in nature and has the most therapeutic benefits. Polyphenols, green tea and disease prevention 1. Cardiovascular disease Many studies have shown that green tea polyphenols have protective effects on cardiovascular diseases (such as atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease). Researchers believe that green tea has successfully reduced the risk of heart disease by reducing the levels of bad cholesterol and triglycerides. 2. Cancer Studies have also shown that green tea extracts, especially EGCG, have anti-cancer properties. According to research by Japanese researchers, the incidence of cancer is low in countries where people often consume green tea, such as Japan. Green tea polyphenols are believed to help kill cancer cells and prevent their growth. 3. Lose weight Other studies conducted around the world indicate that EGCG may boost your metabolism and help burn fat. Therefore, green tea has been found to have a positive effect on weight loss and weight control of obese individuals. Other potential benefits In addition to the above benefits, Gunpowder Green Tea polyphenols can also protect us from arthritis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and diabetes.
  12. Black tea and China Green Tea come from the same shrub, called tea leaves. In both cases, the tea picker will pull the top buds and leaves from the plant. What's the difference? It boils down to the chemical process of processing and oxidation that leads to browning.   Green tea (green tea and white tea) has much higher antioxidant content than ordinary tea. It has 30 mg of caffeine per serving. Green tea tastes lighter than ordinary tea.   Normal (black tea and black tea) tea has some antioxidants, but not as high as green. It contains 50 mg of caffeine per serving. But its flavor is stronger than green tea. green tea    In order to produce green tea, the leaves are harvested, withered, and then heated by steaming (Japanese style) or pan-burning (Chinese style). This process prevents oxidation, allowing the leaves to maintain their color and delicate, fresh taste. Although the green tea preparation process starts in the same way, the amount of fermentation is different, which produces completely different results. Sometimes the green tea leaves are slightly withered-but then they can be pan-fried, dried or steamed to prevent oxidation. Since the leaves are not fermented, they stay green and produce a lighter, more grassy flavor. black tea    To produce black tea, the leaves are harvested and withered, then crushed, torn, curled or rolled up, and oxidized before being dried. As a result, the leaves darken and develop a stronger flavor and aroma. To prepare the tea leaves for black tea, the whole leaves are cut at the highest freshness from the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) and allowed to wither. Withering naturally reduces the amount of water in the plant, then the leaves are set aside to dry and oxidize in a process called fermentation. The chemical composition of tea changes through fermentation: the longer the leaves are oxidized, the darker the leaves. The long oxidation process gives black tea a distinctive and bold flavor. Which one has more caffeine?    Although green tea usually has less caffeine than black tea, this is not always the case. Caffeine content may vary depending on plant species, processing and brewing methods. According to data from the Mayo Clinic, the caffeine content of green tea is 24-40 mg/cup, and the content of black tea is 14-61 mg/cup. Which one has more antioxidants?    Both Gunpowder Green Tea and black tea contain antioxidants, which can prevent cancer and other diseases. For many years, research has focused on the health properties of green tea. Recent research shows that black tea also has benefits. In each case, oxidized or non-oxidized provide the tea with a different set of antioxidant compounds.
  13. Gunpowder Tea is one of the most commonly used teas in the world. Green tea extract is in its concentrated form, and only one capsule contains the same amount of active ingredients as a cup of regular green tea. Like green tea, green tea extract is also an important source of antioxidants. These are believed to have a range of health benefits, from promoting heart, liver and brain health to improving skin and even reducing the risk of cancer (1). Moreover, many studies have studied the ability of green tea extract to help lose weight. In fact, many weight-loss products list it as a key ingredient. This article explores 10 science-based benefits of green tea extract. 1. High antioxidant The health benefits of green tea extract are mainly due to its high antioxidant content. Antioxidants can fight against cell damage caused by free radicals, thereby helping to reduce oxidative stress. This cell damage is related to aging and many diseases (2Trusted Source). Polyphenol antioxidants called catechins account for most of the antioxidant content of green tea extract. Among the catechins in green tea, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most studied and is considered to have the greatest health benefits. Studies have shown that green tea extract can enhance the body's antioxidant capacity and resist oxidative stress (3Trusted Source, 4Trusted Source, 5Trusted Source). For example, a study asked 35 obese people to take 870 mg of green tea extract in eight weeks. Their blood antioxidant capacity increased from 1.2μmol/L to 2.5μmol/L on average (5 trusted sources). Green tea extract can enhance antioxidant capacity and help prevent various health problems caused by oxidative stress. Introduction: Green tea extract is rich in antioxidants called catechins, which have been shown to increase antioxidant capacity and prevent oxidative stress. 2. May promote heart health Oxidative stress increases the accumulation of fat in the blood, thereby promoting arterial inflammation and leading to high blood pressure (6Trusted Source, 7Trusted Source). Fortunately, the antioxidants in green tea extract can reduce inflammation and help lower blood pressure. They can also inhibit the absorption of fat in cells and help reduce blood lipid levels (7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source, 9Trusted Source, 10Trusted Source). A study asked 56 obese people with high blood pressure to take 379 mg of green tea extract daily for three months. Compared with the placebo group, their blood pressure was significantly lower (9Trusted Source). In addition, their blood lipid levels were significantly reduced, including lower triglycerides as well as total and LDL cholesterol (9 trusted sources). Another study conducted in 33 healthy people found that taking 250 mg of green tea extract daily for 8 weeks can reduce total cholesterol by 3.9% and LDL cholesterol by 4.5% (10 trusted sources) ). Given that high blood pressure and high blood lipid levels are risk factors for heart disease, adjusting them can promote heart health. Introduction: The catechins in green tea may help lower blood pressure and improve blood lipid levels, thereby promoting heart health. 3. Good for the brain The antioxidants in green tea extracts, especially EGCG, have been shown to protect brain cells from oxidative stress (11Trusted Source). This protection can help reduce brain damage (12 sources, 13 sources, 14 sources) that can lead to mental weakness and brain diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and dementia. In addition, green tea extract can reduce the effects of heavy metals such as iron and copper, both of which can damage brain cells (15 sources, 16 sources). It has also been shown to help memory by strengthening the connections between different parts of the brain. In one study, 12 people drank soft drinks containing 27.5 grams of green tea extract or a placebo. Then, while the participants were taking a memory test, brain images were obtained to evaluate brain function. Compared with the placebo group, the green tea extract group showed enhanced brain function and improved task performance (17Trusted Source). Introduction: China Green Tea extract has been shown to have a positive effect on brain health and memory, and may help prevent brain diseases.
  14. Having acne is frustrating. Washing this with facial wash does not help either. Logging entries on your food diary and identifying the food or drink that causes acne can be effective, but how about the acne scars and lesions? It will take time to heal those. Another best solution for faster acne scar recovery aside from putting topical medication, avoiding milk, and not eating specific foods is drinking China Green Tea or using green tea bags for pimples. You are wondering now if green tea is effective. Let’s find out! According to an article from NCBI National Library of Medicine, a randomized clinical trial was conducted for almost 1 year and the result was the reduction in cholesterol level and lesions inflammation. Green tea’s catechins (antioxidants) particularly EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) are the ones that help in fighting inflammation and swelling. Not only green tea bags can cure pimples and acne scars, but also can help you flush toxins, and boost your immune system. GREEN TEA ACNE BEAUTY HACKS On boiled water, steep the green tea as if you will be drinking it or as per package instruction. Let it cool then, dip a cotton ball or a washcloth and dab it on the pimple. Store the remaining green tea on a spray bottle or a cleanser bottle. Green tea helps in fighting hormonal imbalance through reducing blood sugar and decreasing insulin levels where in effect, less sebum oil production or oily skin. Sebum, mixed with dirt and sweat, is often the culprit behind large and inflamed pimples. For the leftover cool green tea bags, get the leaves out of those bags, mix these with honey (face mask) or brown sugar (face scrub), and leave the mixture on your face for 15-30 minutes if using as face mask (honey) or massage the face for 10 minutes if using as face scrub (brown sugar) then, rinse. Topical skincare products with green tea and caffeine are known to be effective in reducing breakouts. These do not make the skin too dry unlike with benzoyl peroxide and retinol. Safer to drink and use too unlike with acne pills where you are not sure if it is safe to take this without side effects. OTHER GREEN TEA BEAUTY BENEFITS You can use the green tea leaves as pimple drier, face mask, face scrub, and fat burner. Since green tea has mild caffeine, you can drink it at least 30 minutes to an hour before your workout. Drinking caffeine improves your performance when you workout since this will make you become alert and awake. It also helps with weight loss by suppressing your appetite especially when you take 1-2 cups before dinner. Green tea keeps you hydrated as well and makes you eat less. CONCLUSION A safe beauty and health drink product indeed. It does not mean that you will drink as much green tea as you want. Just use these on your skin correctly and drink in moderation like 2-3 cups a day. Green tea is one of the best natural drink alternatives to water.

    Know More Things of China Green Tea

    It's a drink which has become synonymous with a healthy lifestyle - but is China Green Tea the magical potion many health sites would have us believe? Green tea has been popular in China for centuries, and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat a number of health issues - including depression. Its virtues have also been extolled by celebrities and so-called health experts for a number of reasons. These include its ability to help weight-loss, as well as containing antioxidants which are believed to help combat different types of cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer's. Given these claims, it's easy to see green tea as sort of magical elixir. 1. Green tea and weight loss Green tea contains B vitamins, folate (naturally occurring folic acid), manganese, potassium, magnesium, caffeine and other antioxidants, such as catechins. It's catechins - along with green tea's naturally occurring caffeine - which are thought to help the body burn more calories. Weight-loss products containing green tea have a higher concentration of catechins and caffeine than the typical green tea beverage. However, there's some bad news. A review from 2012 of 18 studies involving 1,945 people found no significant effect of weight loss from drinking green tea. 2. Green tea and cholesterol Thanks again to the catechins, in a reputable review from 2013 of 11 studies involving 821 people, it was found daily consumption of green and black tea (as a drink or a capsule) could help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. It's important to note, however, that the authors of the study pointed out the trials were short-term, and cautioned longer-term trials would be needed to substantiate their findings. These were back up by an earlier review in 2011, which found drinking green tea enriched with catechins led to a small reduction in cholesterol, a main cause of heart disease and stroke. Though no one could say for certain how much green tea a person would need to drink to reap the benefits. 3. Green tea and cancer On this the NHS is clear. There is no evidence drinking green tea protects against different types of cancer.
