Have you noticed that Green Tea has become more popular and mainstream in the last few years? In the West anyway; China, Japan and other Asian countries have known about the power of Green Tea for centuries. In more recent years, hard scientific evidence supporting the health benefits of Green Tea has come out; in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute concluded in an epidemiological study that drinking Green Tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese women and men, by nearly 60%. Researchers at the University of Purdue discovered that a compound in Green Tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Still more reports show that Green Tea may also have the ability to help prevent cancers of the bladder, breast, colon, lung, pancreas, prostate, skin, and stomach.
The benefits of Green Tea don’t stop there. The extracts of Green Tea leaves can be used to treat various stomach ailments, reduce cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and heart attack causing blood vessel blockages; Green Tea extracts also reduce tooth decay and certain bacterial infections.
So what’s the Green Tea secret?
Green Tea is rich in catechin polyphenols as well as the powerful anti-oxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Besides making it too hard for cancer cells to grow, it actually kills those cells without harming the healthy ones.
But, like with pretty much everything, different people react to Green Tea in different ways. Although it’s half the amount found in coffee, Green Tea does contain caffeine and may not agree with your system. The green tea table HERE compares the amount of caffeine found in Green Tea to other drinks with caffeine, as well as to chocolate to give you an idea of how your system may react.
Most of the caffeine in Green Tea is released into the hot water the first time the tea is infused; if you need it weaker simply steep the tea for 45 seconds in hot water, pour it out, add more hot water and infuse the green tea again. This will remove most the caffeine without losing the flavor and aroma.
