5 Science-Based Benefits Of Drinking Green Tea

5 Science-Based Benefits Of Drinking Green Tea

Green tea is considered to be a very healthy beverage. It is consumed all around the world and now we know of several benefits associated with it. Green tea is full of antioxidants, which is what offers most of the health benefits discussed by nutritionists right now. However, as with most drinks you could buy, not all benefits presented in the media are correct. In order to highlight exactly why green tea is so popular right now, let’s only focus on the health benefits that have scientific backing. This does not mean the benefits presented below are the only ones that should be mentioned. Many others might exist. We just need more studies to prove them. 

The 6 science-based benefits of drinking green tea presented below are:

  • Improving Brain Function
  • Speeding Up Weight Loss
  • Increasing Life Span
  • Offering Healthy Bioactive Compound
  • Preventing Cardiovascular Diseases
  • 1. Green Tea helps improving brain function

    Green tea will not only keep you alert but also improve your brain function. One of our blends - Ashwagandha Green Tea - is specifically aimed at this only.  It will also boost your brain function due to the caffeine content it has. The great thing about green tea is that it does not include much caffeine but enough to boost brain health. The caffeine content is much less than that of coffee. However, it is more than enough to produce results without those jittery effects people experience when drinking too much coffee. The way in which caffeine affects your brain is through blocking adenosine, which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This automatically increases neurotransmitter concentration, including norepinephrine and dopamine. (Source: Caffeine and the central nervous system: mechanisms of action, biochemical, metabolic and psychostimulant effects)While caffeine helps improve your reaction times, memory, mood, and brain function, the L-theanine content in green tea will increase GABA neurotransmitter activity leading to anti-anxiety effects. At the same time, dopamine is increased, together with alpha wave production. (Source: L-theanine, a natural constituent in tea, and its effect on mental stateDue to the smaller caffeine dose and the L-theanine present, green tea will offer a milder buzz than what you get from coffee. This is why some people end up being more productive as they consume green tea and not coffee.

    2.Green Tea  Speeding Up Weight Loss

    This is one of the benefits of drinking green tea that is often mentioned and the truth is that it is backed by science. Drinking teas like Hibiscus Green Tea can help you lose weight because it will increase the speed at which your body burns fat and speed up your metabolic rate. And it can also prevent food cravings. (Source: Apple Cider Vinegar Or Green Tea – Which Is The Better Natural Weight Loss Aid?A study that involved 10 men showed that those taking a green tea extract ended up with increased calories burned by four percent. In another study, fat oxidation was increased by 17 percent. (Source: Efficacy of a green tea extract rich in catechin polyphenols and caffeine in increasing 24-h energy expenditure and fat oxidation in humans)  While effects do vary from one person to the next, we can also take a look at the caffeine content we already mentioned. Caffeine is capable of improving your physical performance since it mobilizes fat tissue fatty acids. Basically, the body ends up using more fatty acids as energy so this increases how much fat you burn.

    3. Green Tea  improving  life Span

    Green tea includes several compounds that actively fight against heart disease and cancer. This automatically means that it will help you to live longer. A study carried out on over 40,000 Japanese adults covering 11 years showed that those who drank over 4 cups of green tea per die had a lower possibility of dying. (Source: the Ohsaki study) During the study, the effect of green tea and reduced death rates was observed as being the following:

    • Deaths from stroke – men: 35% lower / women: 42% lower
    • Deaths from heart diseases - men: 22% lower / women: 31% lower
    • Deaths from all causes – men: 12% lower / women: 23% lower

    We also had another study conducted in Japan that highlighted those who were drinking green tea had a lower possibility of dying by 76% over the duration of a 6 years period (which is how long the study was). So, if you want to live longer, green tea might help you.

    4.Green Tea Includes Healthy Bioactive Compounds

    What most people say about green tea is it is hydrating. But, this drink is much more than that. There are so many healthy compounds present and many were not even properly researched yet.  For instance, this tea has a high presence of polyphenols. These are natural compounds with several health benefits, like helping the body to fight cancer and reduce inflammation. Another thing you should know is that green tea includes EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate). This is a catechin, which is a type of natural antioxidant. Catechins can help the body to prevent the appearance of cell damage. Such substances will reduce how many free radicals appear inside the body while protecting cells from damage. EGCG is actually one of the most impressive compounds found in green tea that most people know nothing about. It was used to help in the treatment of several diseases and is believed to be the reason why the tea has such strong medicinal properties. (Source: Molecular understanding of Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) in cardiovascular and metabolic diseases)  To make matters even more interesting, green tea also includes several minerals. However, this is only the case when you choose the best brands out there. Lower quality brands simply include too much fluoride and have questionable tea plant sources. Teacurry teas are premium, handmade, and natural. You know what you get with this premium brand recommended by nutritionists from every corner of the world.

      5.Green Tea Might Help Prevent Cardiovascular Diseases

      The main cause of death around the world is cardiovascular diseases. This includes strokes and heart diseases. Thankfully, green tea might help prevent them because of improving important risk factors associated with the diseases. When you drink green tea, your blood’s antioxidant capacity increases. This will protect LDL particles and they will not oxidize as much. As a result, heart disease risks are reduced. (Source: Inhibitory effect of Chinese green tea on endothelial cell-induced LDL oxidation)By looking at the cumulative studies conducted on people drinking green tea in relation to heart disease risk factors, it is concluded that drinking the tea leads to a lower risk by 31% of a cardiovascular disease killing you. To keep things simple, green tea has the ability of lowering LDL cholesterol levels inside your body. This is what increases your body’s ability to fight potential cardiovascular diseases.
