Drinking To Your Way To A Healthier You

Copyright (c) 2007-2019

Sure, soft drinks have been an anchor in American culture since the beginning of the twentieth century, but do you remember anyone ever saying anything about it being healthy? Of course not; it's liquid candy for crying out loud! The next time you're thirsty, instead of reaching for a few unwanted pounds, reach for something that can actually help you to shed some of that weight. Why not treat yourself to a delicious, healthy cup of Green Tea?

Next to water, tea is the most commonly consumed beverage in the world. I feel safe to assume that by now, you have already heard that tea and green tea in particular, is especially good for your health. Whether you prefer green tea, black tea, or red tea, they all contain polyphenols which give tea its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are what help protect our bodies from free radical damage; they are also found in many fruits and vegetables. So you want to know more about how green tea can help you? Sure, and in the meantime why not enjoy a cup.

This caffeine contained beverage has been linked back historically to the East, but recently, the American public has embraced it. It can be found virtually anywhere, from restaurants, stores and hotels, to tea and coffee houses across the country, as well as in American homes of every lifestyle. With its many health benefits, Catechins in green tea are the very powerful polyphenolic antioxidants that work most of the magic. It is also the bitter ingredient in green tea that effectively kills bacteria which causes food poisoning and also kills the toxins produced by those bacteria. . Epidemiological observations have shown that people in green-tea consuming countries, mostly Japan and China, have very low rates of cancer.

People in Japan who drink more than the average amount of extra strong green tea are well known for their longevity and low morality rate; deaths from cancer are especially rare. Green tea has a high source of vitamins and minerals, containing vitmin C in amounts similar to that found in a lemon. It also contains vitamin B, which are water soluble and quickly disbursed into a cup of tea. Green tea is high in fluoride and provides approximately 5% of the daily requirement for magnesium, 25% of potassium, and 45% of the requirement of magnesium in the average 5 cups of tea per day. It will also provide 5 to 10% of the daily requirement for riboflavin, folic acid, niacin, and antothenic acid.

Very strong evidence has shown that green tea may help lower blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease. On top of that, the consumption on green tea I also linked to the prevention of many types of organ cancer such as colon, esophagus, kidney, lung, mouth, stomach and mammary glands. Green tea also promotes weight loss. The leaves of green tea plants help raise metabolism in the body; increasing the amount of calories burned in a 24 hour period.

Here are some other benefits to this wonderfully healthy beverage:

  • Prevent bad breath - an element found in green tea decreases the growth of odor-causing bacteria. Drinking a cup or two of green tea a day may help maintain fresh breath.

  • Reduce risks of smoking - cigarette smokers who drink up to six cups of green tea daily reduce their susceptibility to risks caused by the toxins emitted in cigarette smoke.

  • Beauty remedies - green tea can be used to freshen up your face and/or sooth tired, strained eyes. It can be applied to spots and blemishes to lessen their visibility.

  • Antiseptic - Green tea is also known to treat minor cuts and rashes, and is an effective treatment for sunburn.


    Both tea and coffee contain caffeine. A regular cup of green tea has about half of what is found in a regular cup of coffee, but both beverages have a similar effect on alertness. However, tea produces more consistent levels during the day and appears to have a gentler, reviving effect. People who drink tea before they go to sleep tend to fall asleep faster and achieve a better quality sleep than those who drink the same amount of coffee before bed.

    What is the difference between Green tea, Black tea and Red tea? All tea comes from the Camellia sinensis bush. The more processing tea leaves undergo, the darker they will turn. Aside from white tea, which is a very rare tea from China, Green tea is the least processed; meaning they are steamed the quickest. Black and red teas are partly dried, crushed and fermented. As already mentioned, all teas, nomatter how they were processed contain polyphenols.

    Would you like to learn a very interesting and informative fact? Herbal tea is not derived from the same leaf. Therefore it does not have these particular health promoting properties. A lot of these herbal teas found in the market are not tea at all, instead, only infusions made with herbs, flowers, roots, spices and other parts of certain plants. The proper term for these types of beverages is "tisane". So the next time you want to pick up herbal tea, pay close attention to the labels.

    In this day and time, it almost seems as if kindness, politeness, consideration, and most of the lessons we were taught as children were tossed out of the window one day and replaced with a new set of rules. Could it simply be that children these days are born with a defect, lacking self-control? Or are they just not being taught the way they should be taught; parents blaming modern day hardships and circumstances? It is true that the children being raised today will determine the shape of our future, but in the meantime, whose example are they following?
