Green Tea Benefits
Green Tea has antioxidants that help to keep the skin from being plagued by acne and in some cases been demonstrated to function equally as well as the harsher benzoyl peroxide used in many skin products. The polyphenois in green tea have demonstrated a positive effect on intestinal inflammation suffered by people afflicted with conditions like irritable bowel syndromes. Green tea demonstrates improvements in vascular function, leading to significant reductions in stroke risk. The average intake in those studies was 4 cups per day for black tea and 5 to 6 cups per day for green tea (due to the smaller cup traditionally used). The study was commissioned by the UK Tea Advisory Panel.
Green tea as well as black tea aids in reducing sugar levels and inhibiting cataracts in diabetic mice. The study by the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania found both teas reduced glucose levels and other diabetic complications, such as cataracts, during the three-month test on rats. "Most people, scientists included, believe that green tea has more health benefits than black tea," said lead author Joe Vinson. of the research to be published in the American Chemical Society's Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. The finding that green and black teas are beneficial suggests the drinks could be simple and inexpensive ways for humans to fight diabetes, he said. Vinson's earlier work showed both teas equally inhibited atherosclerosis, a major risk for people suffering from heart disease as plaque builds up on arterial walls according to the United Press Int'l, April 19, 2005.
