What is Green Tea?
Green tea is made solely with the leaves of Camellia Sinensis that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Over the last few decades green tea has been subjected to many scientific and medical studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits, with some evidence suggesting that regular green tea drinkers may have a lower risk of developing heart disease and certain types of cancer.
Although green tea does not raise the metabolic rate enough to produce immediate weight loss, a green tea extract containing polyphenols and caffeine has been shown to induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate 4% without increasing the heart rate thus helping to support effective weight loss.
How Green Tea works. The science behind the secret......
Green Tea is derived from the same plant as black tea, but is treated differently. Both types are made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, but black tea is fermented and this process removes some of the beneficial qualities of the tea by reducing its polyphenol content.
Polyphenols are antioxidants that stabilise free radicals within the body which could lead to damaging cells and it is the polyphenols within Green Tea that have been associated with its cardio-protective effects and the reduction of inflammation of blood vessel walls.
- To lower cholesterol levels as the polyphenols may help to decrease the absorption of cholesterol.
- A natural aid to weight loss as the polyphenols may help with the digestion of fat.
The potent antioxidant properties within Green Tea suggest that it may have positive effects upon cardiovascular health. This is due to the polyphenols (antioxidants that stabilise free radicals within the body) which help to reduce cholesterol absorption & plasma triglycerides, as well as having an anti-inflammatory effect upon the vessel walls. Arterial inflammation is one of the major causes of arterial hardening and heart disease.
