What are the health benefits from drinking tea?
Medical research has shown miraculous healing powers in tea.
Regular consumption of tea helps to:
Tea has antibacterial, antioxidant, antiseptic and detoxifying properties that make it effective in treating infectious dysentery as well as easing inflammatory bowel disease.
Prevent Heart Disease
A recent study found that drinking more than two cups of tea a day helps to decrease the risk of death following a heart attack by 44 percent.
Green tea extracts were found to inhibit the growth of bladder cancer cells in the lab – while other studies suggest that drinking green tea protects against developing stomach, prostate and esophageal cancers.
Research suggests that older women who are tea drinkers are 60 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than those who do not drink tea.
Increase Bone Density
Drinking tea regularly for years may produce stronger bones. Those who drank tea on a regular basis for 10 or more years had higher-bone mineral density in their spines than those who had not.
Aid Oral Health
Researchers who have been investigating the medicinal properties of tea think that tea may be able to help people afflicted with bad breath, or halitosis, prevent cavities and gum disease.
Strengthen the Immune System
The antioxidant, detoxifying antibacterial properties of tea, as well as the vitamins and minerals present in tea helps to strengthen our immune system.
Results from these studies suggest that green tea may be useful for the following health conditions:
Population-based studies indicate that the antioxidant properties of green tea may help prevent atherosclerosis, particularly coronary artery disease. (Population-based studies refers to studies that follow large groups of people over time and/or studies that are comparing groups of people living in different cultures or with different dietary habits, etc.)
Green tea has demonstrated an ability to lower total cholesterol and raise HDL ("good") cholesterol in both animals and people. One population-based study found that men who drink green tea are more likely to have lower total cholesterol thank those who do not drink green tea. Results from one animal study suggest that polyphenols in green tea may block the intestinal absorption of cholesterol and promote its excretion from the body.
The cancer-protective effects of green tea have been reported in several population-based studies. For example, cancer rates tend to be low in countries such as Japan where green tea is regularly consumed. However, it is not possible to determine from these population-based studies whether green tea actually prevents cancer in people. Emerging animal and clinical studies are beginning to suggest that substances in green tea known as polyphenols may play an important role in the prevention of cancer. These substances act as powerful antioxidants. Researchers also believe that polyphenols help kill cancerous cells and stop its progression.
Only a few studies have examined the relationship between bladder cancer and green tea consumption. In one study that compared people with and without bladder cancer, researchers found that women who drank black tea and powdered green tea were less likely to develop bladder cancer. A follow-up study by the same group of researchers revealed that bladder cancer patients (particularly men) who drank green tea had a substantially better 5-year survival rate than those who did not.
Studies in animals and test tubes suggest that polyphenols in green tea inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells. In one study of 472 women with various stages of breast cancer, researchers found that women who consumed the most green tea experienced the least spread of cancer (particularly premenopausal women with early stages of breast cancer). They also found that women with early stages of the disease who drank at least 5 cups of tea every day before being diagnosed with cancer were less likely to suffer recurrences of the disease after completion of treatment. However, women with late stages of breast cancer experienced little or no improvement from drinking green tea.
Studies on the effects of green tea on colon or rectal cancer have produced conflicting results. Some studies show decreased risk in those who drink the tea, while others show increased risk. Further research is needed before green tea can be recommended for the prevention of colorectal cancer.
Studies in laboratory animals have found that green tea polyphenols inhibit the growth of esophageal cancer cells. However, results of studies in people have been conflicting. For example, one large-scale population-based study found that green tea offered significant protection against the development of esophageal cancer (particularly among women). Another population-based study revealed just the opposite — green tea consumption was associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. In fact, the stronger and hotter the tea, the greater the risk. Given these conflicting findings, further research is needed before green tea can be recommended for the prevention of esophageal cancer.
While green tea polyphenols have been shown to inhibit the growth of human lung cancer cells in test tubes, few studies have investigated the link between green tea consumption and lung cancer in people and even these studies have been conflicting. One population-based study found that Okinawan tea (similar to green tea but partially fermented) was associated with decreased lung cancer risk, particularly among women. A second study revealed that green tea and black tea significantly increased the risk of lung cancer. As with colon and esopageal cancers, further studies are needed before any conclusions can be drawn about green tea and lung cancer.
In one large-scale study comparing green tea drinkers with non-drinkers, those who drank the most tea were significantly less likely to develop pancreatic cancer. This was particularly true for women — those who drank the most green tea were half as likely to develop pancreatic cancer as those who drank less tea. Men who drank the most tea were 37% less likely to develop pancreatic cancer. It is not clear from this population-based study, however, whether green tea is solely responsible for reducing pancreatic cancer risk. Although promising, further studies in animals and people are needed before green tea can be recommended for the prevention of pancreatic cancer.
Laboratory studies have found that green tea extracts prevent the growth of prostate cancer cells in test tubes. However, both green and black tea extracts were also found to stimulate genes that cause cells to be less sensitive to chemotherapy drugs. Given this potential interaction, black and green tea (as well as extracts of these teas) should not be taken while receiving chemotherapy.
Laboratory studies have found that green tea polyphenols inhibit the growth of stomach cancer cells in test tubes, but studies in people have been less conclusive. In two studies that compared green tea drinkers with non-drinkers, researchers found that people who drank tea were about half as likely to develop stomach cancer and gastritis (inflammation of the stomach) as those who did not drink green tea. However, a recent study including more than 26,000 men and women in Japan found no association between green tea consumption and stomach cancer risk. Some studies even suggest that green tea may increase the risk of stomach cancer.Further studies are underway to determine whether green tea helps reduce the risk of stomach cancer. Although green tea is considered safe for people at risk for stomach cancer, it is too soon to tell whether green tea reduces the likelihood of developing this disease.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
Green tea may help reduce inflammation associated with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, the two types of IBD. Also, if green tea proves to be helpful for preventing colon cancer, this would be an added benefit for those with IBD because they are at risk for colon cancer.
Green tea has been used traditionally to control blood sugar in the body. Animal studies suggest that green tea may help prevent the development of type 1 diabetes and slow the progression once it has developed. People with type 1 diabetes produce little or no insulin, a hormone that converts glucose (sugar), starches, and other foods into energy needed for daily life. Green tea may help regulate glucose in the body. More research in this area would be helpful.
Population-based studies have shown that men who drink more than 10 cups of green tea per day are less likely to develop disorders of the liver. Green tea also appears to protect the liver from the damaging effects of toxic substances such as alcohol. Animal studies have shown that green tea helps protect against the development of liver tumors in mice. Results from several animal and human studies suggest that one of the polyphenols present in green tea, known as catechin, may help treat viral hepatitis (inflammation of the liver from a virus). In these studies, catechin was isolated from green tea and used in very high concentrations. It is not clear at this time, whether green tea (which contains a lower concentration of catechins) confers these same benefits to people with hepatitis.
Studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat, but there have been no specific studies of this herb in overweight or obese individuals. Some researchers speculate that substances in green tea known as polyphenols, specifically the catechins, are responsible for the herb’s fat-burning effect.
Oolong Tea-Tie Guan Yin
In recent years, the study by scientists at home and abroad that Japan is particularly scientists confirmed Tieguanyin the chemical composition and mineral elements on human health has a special function, generally in the following areas:
Tieguanyin the anti-aging effects
Some Chinese and foreign scientific research shows that people do not aging and in vivo oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids over the role without excessive oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids is related to the role of free radicals. High chemical activity of free radicals will not excessive oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids, cell function mutation or a recession, caused proliferation and necrosis caused a person to be put to death disease. Excessive lipid oxidation is the demon human health, but the chief culprit is free radicals, as long as the free radical scavenging swap, it can be normal cell growth and good health and longevity.
Usually, there are commonly used antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin E, which can effectively prevent excessive oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids. Recently, Japanese researchers showed that the Tieguanyin polyphenols can prevent excessive oxidation; purine alkaloids, indirectly play a role in scavenging free radicals, so as to achieve the purpose of aging.
Tieguanyin anti-cancer role
Cancer is a serious threat to people’s health in today’s "incurable." Therefore, the tea cancer research in recent years has aroused people’s great interest and concern. A few years ago, there have been reports that a Shanghai tea to the public because of esophageal cancer reduced year by year, this tea can prevent the occurrence of cancer in the world this fact has aroused great repercussion. Now tea can prevent cancer cancer has been recognized by the world, and in tea anti-cancer effects in cancer prevention is the best Tieguanyin.
As early as 1983, Japan Okayama University Okuda extension of the male professor had several dozens of plants polyphenolic compounds for screening anticancer effect change, results show that: catechins (EGCG) has a strong anti-cancer Activity. Other scientists confirmed Tieguanyin-variation of the study, Tieguanyin tea polyphenols that this role is the main active ingredient in the carcinogenic chemicals in the study, and affirmed the Tieguanyin tea polyphenols role in the prevention of cancer . In addition, Tieguanyin of vitamin C and vitamin E can prevent carcinogens – Synthesis of nitrosamines, the prevention and treatment of cancer have a greater role.
Tieguanyin role in the anti-atherogenic
May 31, 1999, in Tokyo, Japan held the fourth oolong tea and health seminar, the Fujian Provincial Traditional Chinese Medicine Institute Ling, vice president of the reports they had 25 hyperlipidemia obesity targets for clinical observation, Tieguanyin tea consumption on the blood inhibit the oxidation of low-density lipoprotein in the blood and improve the role of lipid metabolism. Studies have shown that the Tieguanyin tea polyphenols compounds and vitamins in the blood can inhibit LDL oxidation. Japan Mitsui Institute of Agriculture and Forestry Dr. Masahiko in the years of research has also confirmed that tea polyphenols compounds not only can lower blood cholesterol, but also significantly improved high-density lipoprotein in the blood and the ratio of low-density lipoprotein. Caffeine can diastolic blood vessels, speed up the breathing and blood lipid lowering, the prevention and treatment of coronary heart disease, hypertension, atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases have a certain role.
According to the Fujian Medical University Coronary Heart Disease Study Group in 1974 in Fujian Anxi Chaxiang the 1080 survey found that farmers do not drink Tieguanyin tea incidence rate of 3.1% for the occasional drink 2.3%; perennial drinking (3 years above) at 1.4%. Evidently, Changhe Tieguanyin people do not drink Tieguanyin than the low incidence of coronary heart disease.
Tieguanyin the role Qingre downbear fire
Tea drinks is a good summer cooling purposes. Li Shizhen "Compendium of Materia Medica" contains: "tea bitter cold, most downbear fire, the fire was riddled with fire down the supernatant.Morning drink was dropped due to fire, heat and hot drinks, or by Powder. "in the dog days of midsummer, when the cool air, and Shu Qi pressing, drink a glass of cool, or hot cup of Tieguanyin Tieguanyin will feel physically and mentally cool, Sheng Jin Jieshu. This is because the type of tea polyphenols contained in tea, sugar, amino acids, pectin, vitamins, and other saliva from the mouth of a chemical reaction, moisten the mouth, it can play the role of Shengjinzhenghe. At the same time, Tieguanyin of caffeine role in bringing a lot of energy from the skin pores in the human body falling apart. According to reports, a cup of hot tea, the human body through skin pores sweating dissemination of calories, the equivalent of this cup of tea 50 times, it can feel cool Jieshu.
Tieguanyin the refreshing benefits Reith role
Think tea can benefit almost everyone knows refreshing. Medical Books documented many of China’s ancient dynasties Wenrenmeike, all monks also waved Shenghuamiaobi, Chung tea refreshing benefits of reactive thinking. Bai Juyi "gifts east-13" poem said: "Collaboration floor, Kaijin Takeshita wind. Flooding worries that Jiuli, broken sleep see tea reactive." The poem that referred to the tea break refreshing sleep of the work. Su Shi said: "Better tea 30, how to taste without trial, Feng Bao gifts Lay, Nebuta Cengfang war." He said gave the packet tea Lay built, so drink in Canshan can avoid dozing. Think tea can be beneficial, so loved by people, especially for some writers, poets and other intellectuals beloved. If the French writer Balzac, the Chinese-American writer Han pitch Taoxueken famous Chinese writer, and so fond of tea to help Evans.
Tieguanyin benefits can be refreshing thought, its principal functions is the caffeine in tea. Caffeine is the central nervous excitement, the promotion of thinking, improve efficiency function. Therefore, after the tea break sleeping, refreshing to trouble lifting tired, sober-minded, enhance thinking, can significantly improve the ability of oral and mathematical thinking response. At the same time, Tieguanyin contains polyphenolic compounds, offset by a pure caffeine on the adverse effect of the human body. This is also a long history of tea drinking and inspiring, and the continuous development of one of the important reasons.
Tieguanyin control diabetes
Diabetes is a worldwide disease. At present, there are about 200 million people around the world suffering from diabetes, China has more than 30 million people are suffering from diabetes. Diabetes is a metabolic disorder mainly sugar systemic chronic disease. Typical clinical manifestations as "a little more than 3", that is, more drinking, more urine, and more fresh and emaciated, weak body. Chinese disease "Diabetes," and its coke hot and humid areas. The disease is the main reason for the lack of polyphenols in substances, such as vitamin B1, pantothenic acid, phosphoric acid, methyl salicylate, and other components, so that obstacles in glucose metabolism, increase in blood glucose levels, metabolism decreased.
Japan M.D. Ogawa Goshichiro clinical trials, and others confirmed that regular tea drinking can be timely replenishment of the body of vitamin B1, pantothenic acid, phosphoric acid, methyl salicylate and polyphenols, can prevent the occurrence of diabetes. For patients with moderate and mild diabetes can blood sugar, urine sugar reduced to a few, or completely normal for severely diabetic patients, enabling blood sugar, urine sugar decreased, the main symptoms relieved.
Tieguanyin role in the slimming aerobics
Obesity is a rising standard of living with people and the malnutrition of the disease, it is due to excessive intake of nutrients in the storage or use of the energy caused by inadequate. Obesity not only to their daily lives in the cause much inconvenience, but also cause cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus and one of the reasons why.
1996, Fujian Institute of Chinese Medicine of 102 adults suffering from obesity, men and women, the role of diet drink Tieguanyin research. Research shows that Tieguanyin contains large amounts of tea polyphenols substances can not only enhance the role of lipolysis, and organizations can promote the metabolism neutral lipase activities. Thus can improve drinking Tieguanyin obesity physique, effective in reducing obesity subcutaneous fat and waist circumference, so as to reduce its weight.
Quanzhou in Fujian Province People’s Hospital by Tieguanyin slimming tea on 164 people suffering from obesity treatment slimming tea served daily from 12 to 14 g, 15 days for a course of treatment. After two courses of observation, patients with serum lipids, triglycerides and cholesterol has decreased significantly, weight also will be reduced, the total efficiency of the treatment of more than 70 percent.
Tieguanyin the role of dental caries
It is generally considered a danger to the two dental disease, first caries, and the second is periodontitis. Dental caries, commonly known as tooth decay, dental common multiple. Dental caries in many causes, one of the important reasons are: poor dental calcification, not enough hard texture and can easily be damaged. Tea can protect teeth, has been in the application of ancient China. Song Su in the "tea" Zhongyun: "tea mouthwash, both to trouble greasy, but also Kennedy teeth, absorbing and marine." Modern scientific analysis, Tieguanyin contains a wealth of fluoride, and general Few of fluoride in food. Tieguanyin Fluoride in about 40% to 80% dissolved in water, vulnerable and in the teeth of the combination of calcium in teeth formed on the surface of a layer of calcium fluoride and played anti-acid anti-caries effect.
Japan in two adjacent villages on the enrolment rate of children’s dental caries done survey results show that drinking Tieguanyin the prevention and treatment of dental caries have good results. Each day children enrolled in a cup of Tieguanyin by 0.4 milligrams of fluoride, the last one year, the original of children suffering from dental caries in half recovery. Japan has 100 statistics suffering from dental caries in the primary school students, and economic reform after drinking Tieguanyin, including 55 percent of students suffering from dental caries disease reduced significantly. Thus, the drinking Tieguanyin of people without dental caries preventive effect on the people who have dental caries have a therapeutic effect.
Tieguanyin bactericidal effect Zhilishen
Anxi already used in the civil Tieguanyin dysentery and stomach pain treatment practices. Ancient Chinese medical books in a lot of tea to treat bacterial dysentery, dysentery, white diarrhea, acute enteritis, acute gastritis records. Tieguanyin Why can play a role Zhilishen sterilization? TP is the main compound. As tea polyphenols into the gastrointestinal tract, can intestinal function relaxation of tension, easing intestinal movement at the same time, it also enabled intestinal protein coagulation, because the bacterial protein itself is constituted by the TP and bacterial protein After the meeting, which will bacterial death, played a role in the protection of the gastrointestinal mucosa, it is the effectiveness of the treatment enteritis.
Tieguanyin the enemy Hot Smoke
Hot tea can be the enemy of tobacco, this is a fact known to all. Acting out of Jurists Wang Yangming "As Hanzui, has to be Hot tea", once that the people of our country have long recognized that the effectiveness of anti tea. The ancients often "pouring liquor unhappy," "Hot tea." Tang dynasty poet Liu Yuxi, one day drunk wine, Bai Juyi reminded of the "six tea" can dealcoholic, it satisfactory delivery of sobering-up for tea, tea for the future generations-story thing. Liquor is the main component of alcohol, a glass of wine contains 10% to 70% alcohol. The Tieguanyin tea and ethanol (alcohol in the main components) offsetting each other, it can dealcoholic tea.
Tieguanyin not only sobering-up, and the enemy can smoke. As Tieguanyin containing a phenolic acids substances can precipitate the nicotine in tobacco, from the in vitro. At the same time, Tieguanyin of caffeine can increase liver drug metabolism, and promote blood circulation, the body of nicotine in the blood away from the urine excretion, reduce and eliminate the side-effects of nicotine. Of course, such a role is not just caffeine effectiveness of a single, but with tea polyphenols, vitamin C and other ingredients synergy results.
Appendix: Tieguanyin effectiveness of the reports
June 15, 1989 "health" report, entitled "Chang Yin Qing-Cha can be anti-cancer": "Tea in vivo tumor suppressor test recently by the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, Nutrition and Food Hygiene Research Institute. This this is the first time both at home and abroad. presiding over this trial is that the chemical and toxicological by an associate researcher at the Korea Research Chi and her assistant Xu Yong. them to feed rats such as Fujian five Tieguanyin tea while providing artificial Synthesis of the purity of more than 99.8 percent of the carcinogenic methylkji nitrosamines. after three months, the rats fed tea incidence of esophageal cancer is 42% to 67% of the average number of mice of cancer for 2.2-3 , while rats fed tea esophageal cancer rate was 90 per cent, the number of cancer for an average of 5.2. five tumor suppressor effect of tea to Fujian Tieguanyin and Fujian scented tea is the best, Hangzhou, green tea, black tea and green tea in Hainan times. "
"Chinese tea" are: "the most prominent, the most famous quality products – Tieguanyin, ring, the famous global oolong tea with foreign countries in recent years widely rumored that the anticancer effect is mainly Tieguanyin. Thus set off ‘ Oolong tea hot ‘, especially Japan import large quantities of Tieguanyin, from the Chinese medicine sector attention at home and abroad, have pharmacological research and clinical trials. Tieguanyin is not only superior in quality, and have adequate fitness category than the son of tea polyphenols than Other tea superior efficacy of the anticancer Cellulite, in the tea could be a king. this is the country’s leading products, are universally acclaimed at home and abroad. "
"Chinese tea" are: "1977, the Medical University in Japan Cihui village governance-Dr, after clinical trials found that regular tea drinking Tieguanyin China can effectively reduce cholesterol in patients with obesity and weight. Thus creating enormous interest, began to Tieguanyin tea called ‘slimming tea’, ‘Beauty tea’, ‘longevity tea’. tea Japan Research Centre, Dr A Nan Fung is the Tieguanyin tea study concluded that: Oolong tea Rail concept Music to the prevention of atherosclerosis and normal cells inhibited significantly the role of mutation. Therefore, the Japanese people are extremely welcome. " 1998, Fujian Institute of Chinese Medicine in the infirmary with Tieguanyin nine men were members of convalescence serum and urine of vitamin C content Experiment: "The results show that drinking Tieguanyin, loads of vitamin C in the body, maintain all Blood concentrations of vitamin C decreased, while reducing the total vitamin C urine output. Tieguanyin when to stop drinking, vitamin C urine output rise very fast.mm Tieguanyin polyphenols substances on the human body to retain vitamin C content synergy , will be able to improve the body’s metabolism. "
Oolong Tea-Wu Yi Rock Tea
The benefits of drinking Wu-Yi Tea has been known to help with:
Energy and Metabolism
Prevention of heart disease and strokes
Fighting the aging process
Preventing Cancer and help with infections
Promoting healthy bones and skin
Reducing the effects stress has on the body
Reduce the effects of hypertension
Reduce the effects of Type II Diabetes.
Wu Yi Tea’s Natural Anti-Aging Process
Oolong tea has a substance called Polyphenol, which is a natural antioxidant that comes in the tea. Many signs of aging include dark spots, wrinkled skin, roughness and related blemishes-people have reported a decrease of these symptoms with regular drinking of wu long tea. Polyphenols are powerful compounds that have antioxidant abilities that have been reported to reversed environmental effects of aging. While it won’t literally make you stop aging, it can reverse it’s toll or slow the process. A polyphenal that aids in this process is called Catechins. It destroys free radicals in your body that increases aging.
Free radicals are caused by things like pollution, smoke, eating, drugs, and even sunlight exposure. Drinking wu yi tea regularly can help reverse the effect from these environmental factors.
Another Polyphenol in Oolong tea is called EGCG, which stands fro Epigallocatenchin gallete. It’s like vitamin C or E but much more strong. This also aids in destroying free radicals throughout the entire body. Other antioxidants in the tea include thearubigin and theaflavin that aid in the oxidization process.
Typically, a cup of authentic wu yi tea hs between 20 and 40 mg of polyphenols. This is more than most vegitabls that are considered high on antioxidants. There are a few varieties of Oolong tea, but most of them have the same health and weight loss benefits that aid in preventing or reversing aiging.
Wu Yi Tea Weight Loss
If you’re looking for a completely natural, safe way to lose weight, you should consider drinking Wu-Yi tea. Many people from China and other Asian countries have been using the tea for weight management and other health benefits for centuries. Drinking the tea rarely does little to help, but drinking it regularly throughout the day can have a dramatic effect on your health and weight.
How it works is this: a substance called Polyphenol is in wu yi tea. What this substance does it activate an enzyme that dissolves triglycerides. All oolong tea has this, as well as green and black tea. However, Oolong tea has a higher dose of it to increase weight loss more than green tea. The result is weight loss and a boosted metabolism.
A 2003 study was published in the Journal of Medical investigation. it was titled "Oolong Tea Increases Energy Metabolism in Japanese Females." The study showed that women who drank wu yi tea had a higher rate of weight loss. In the study there was a group of 120 Japanese woman who drank oolong tea for six weeks. Another group drank green tea and another group drank water. The study found that women who drank wu yi tea directly after a meal had 10% more energy. Green tea increases energy by 4% and water did not increase energy at all.
In China Pu Erh Tea is considered as a health-elixir, which has a beneficial functioning with several health problems such as aiding weightloss efforts, reduce blood cholesterol. It is also widely believed in Chinese cultures to counteract the unpleasant effects of heavy alcohol consumption.
The Health Benefits Including:
prevention of heart disease
reducing high blood pressure
reducing various poisons
exciting the central nervous system
extracting poison from the body
Kill the "3H"
Pu-erh tea is a great fat busting weight loss product.
Take a cup of pu erh tea after meal will stimulate your metabolism and fast the burning of body fat, it was called "the king of burning fat". Many clinical test have proven that keep drinking pu erh tea will reduce the blood cholesterol up to 30%, it is the most effective natural product for people who is suffering from high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol and high blood sugar.
We recommend you drink pu-erh tea three times a day after meals for three months and watch the weight drop off. After three months, drinking just one cup per day will help maintain your weight loss.
To loss weight quickly: Follow above instruction and take one cup of pu erh tea on an empty stomach in the morning.
