For Breast Cancer:
Research has proven that drinking green tea in moderate amounts can help lower the risk of breast cancer. This is due to the compound polyphenol E, which has been proven to help slow down breast cancer growth.
The processing of green tea happens by steaming the leaves. Steaming the leaves helps preserves the antioxidant levels. A study conducted by Dr. Kaijun Niu et al., of Tohoku University Graduate School in Sendai, on 1,058 community-dwelling elderly Japanese individuals aged over 70. The impact of green tea on depression symptoms using a 30-item Geriatric depression scale was studied. Research showed that drinking 3-4 cups of green tea every day lowers the chance of developing depressive symptoms. The amino acid that’s present in tea has a tranquilizing effect on the brain that’s linked with relaxation.
For Gum Problems:
Regular consumption of green tea is found to be helpful in the promotion of healthy gums and teeth. The study discovered a reduction in three indicators of periodontal disease — periodontal pocket depth, attachment loss of gum tissue and also bleeding — when green tea was consumed everyday by study patients.
For Heart Disease:
Green tea can help lower the risk of heart disease. Some also believe that it also helps increase brain function. Drinking green tea in the morning is a must if you want to take advantage of its many benefits.
