Health Benefits of Green Tea

By Paula Spencer Scott
From the WebMD Archives https://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/health-benefits-of-green-tea#1
Green tea is so good for you that it's even got some researchers raving.
"It's the healthiest thing I can think of to drink," says Christopher Ochner, PhD. He's a research scientist in nutrition at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital.
Of course, no one food will protect you from disease. Your health is wrapped up in your lifestyle and your genes, so even if you drink green tea all day long, you also need to take care of yourself in other ways, like not smoking, being active, and eating a healthy diet.
Green tea’s biggest benefit? "It's all about the catechin content," says Beth Reardon, RD, a Boston nutritionist. Catechins are antioxidants that fight and may even prevent cell damage. Green tea is not processed much before it's poured in your cup, so it's rich in catechins.
What the Research Shows
Green tea has been shown to improve blood flow and lower cholesterol. A 2013 review of many studies found green tea helped prevent a range of heart-related issues, from high blood pressure to congestive heart failure.
What’s good for the heart is usually good for the brain; your brain needs healthy blood vessels, too. In one Swiss study, MRIs revealed that people who drank green tea had greater activity in the working-memory area of their brains. Green tea has also been shown to help block the formation of plaques that are linked to Alzheimer's disease.
Green tea seems to help keep blood sugar stable in people with diabetes. Because catechins lower cholesterol and blood pressure, they can help protect against the damage a high-fat diet can cause, Ochner says.
What About Weight Loss?
Sorry, but no drink or food melts the pounds off. While some evidence suggests that the active ingredient in green tea, EGCG, may help you drop a few pounds, other studies show no effect.
But green tea is a smart swap for sugary drinks.
"All things being equal, if you sub 1-2 cups of green tea for one can of soda, over the next year you'd save over 50,000 calories," Ochner says. That's more than 15 pounds. Just don’t swamp it with honey or sugar!
Effects on Cancer?
Studies on green tea’s impact on cancer have been mixed. But green tea is known to aid healthy cells in all stages of growth. There are some clues that green tea may help destroy cancer cells, but that research is still in its early stages, so you shouldn’t count on green tea to prevent cancer. In fact, the National Cancer Institute's web site says it "does not recommend for or against the use of tea to reduce the risk of any type of cancer."
Relaxing Ritual
Sipping tea helps you slow down and relax, Reardon says. A natural chemical called theanine found in green tea can provide a calming effect.
But perhaps the biggest benefit, which you get right away, is just taking a tea break. Here’s how to make your next cup:
  • Don't add green tea to boiling water. It's bad for catechins, those healthy chemicals, in the tea. Better: 160-170 degree water.
  • Add lemon. Vitamin C makes the catechins a easier to absorb. Dairy, on the other hand, makes it harder to absorb them.
  • Nutrient levels in green tea can vary. Pricier teas usually have more, and canned green-tea drinks generally have less.
Decaffeinated Green Tea

https://www.drweil.com/diet-nutrition/nutrition/getting-the-most-out-of-green-tea/

If I make green tea in gallon quantities and keep it in the refrigerator, will it retain its nutritional benefits? Does it go bad? If so, how can I tell? Also, do decaf versions of green tea have the nutritional benefits of regular green tea or are the benefits reduced right along with the caffeine?

– December 28, 2012

In general, fresh brewed hot tea is better for you than iced tea, but you can get the same health benefits from iced tea if you use good quality tea and prepare it properly. I checked on this issue with Iman Hakim, M.B.B.Ch., Ph.D., M.P.H., of the University of Arizona’s College of Public Health, who is an authority on the health benefits of tea. Dr. Hakim tells me that hot, brewed tea contains the highest levels of polyphenols, the antioxidants responsible for the health protective effects of tea.

To get similar benefits from cold tea, Dr. Hakim recommends chilling brewed hot tea in the refrigerator – cooling doesn’t diminish the availability of the polyphenols. However, Dr. Hakim says that if ice is added the caffeine will combine with the polyphenols to form an insoluble complex, which is not as bioavailable.

Different methods of preparing tea lend themselves to varied retention of tea’s health benefits. Iced tea is often made with more water and fewer tea bags than is the case when hot tea is brewed (usually one bag per cup of hot water). “Sun tea” is made by steeping tea bags in water for several hours in a glass container placed in the sun, but here, too, the amount of water and number of tea bags used can vary substantially. Depending on the preparation method, the concentration of flavonoids (another class of antioxidants found in tea) can vary from 202 to 847 micrograms per milliliter of tea, according to one of Dr. Hakim’s studies.
If you keep a large amount of brewed tea in the refrigerator, it will eventually begin to ferment, turning cloudy.  This may happen after only 48 hours. If your refrigerated tea looks cloudy, throw it out. (It won’t taste good.) If you can’t use up large quantities before that happens, there’s not much point to brewing big batches.

I also asked Dr. Hakim whether or not decaffeinated green tea loses any of the beneficial polyphenols regular green tea contains. She says that, depending on the brand, polyphenols could be reduced by 15 to 25 percent when green tea is decaffeinated. (She notes that the loss of these beneficial antioxidants is much higher when black tea is decaffeinated.)

When shopping for commercially decaffeinated tea, avoid those that rely on the solvent ethyl acetate to remove the caffeine – it also removes most of tea’s beneficial polyphenols. The better method, called “effervescence” uses only water and carbon dioxide, and retains 95 percent of the polyphenols. Be sure to check labels to see which process was used. If it isn’t specified, you’ll have to contact the manufacturer to find out.

Matcha Green Tea Latte
http://www.spoonfulofsugarfree.com/2014/07/28/matcha-green-tea-latte/

Total Time: 5 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

Serving Size: 8 oz.
Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon matcha tea powder
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup almond milk/coconut milk*
  • 1/8 teaspoon each of cinnamon, nutmeg, turmeric
  • optional: stevia, to taste (5-15 drops)**

Instructions

  1. Bring almond milk and/or coconut to a simmer in a saucepan.
  2. Whisk cinnamon, nutmeg, and turmeric into milk.
  3. Place the matcha powder in the heat-proof glass you will be drinking out of with boiling water and whisk until smooth.
  4. Pour the hot milk with spices into the matcha and stir.
  5. If desired, sweeten to taste.

Notes

*Almond milk is low in fat and less creamy. Coconut fat is high in fat and very creamy. I prefer a half and half mix of the two for the creaminess without such a strong coconut taste. Mix how you prefer.

 



How New Life Allergy Treatment Center and NAET can help you.

The importance of treating food allergies and nutrition, from the NAET website, http://www.naet.com/about/what-is-naet/.

Nutrition

You are what you eat! The secret to good health is achieved through right nutrition. What is right nutrition? And how do you get it? When you can eat nutritious foods without discomfort and assimilate their nutrients, that food is said to be the right food.

When you get indigestion, bloating, or other digestive troubles upon eating the food, that food is not helping you function normally. This is due to an allergy to the food. Different foods react differently in different people. What is food for some may be poison for others. You've probably heard the expression, “one man’s meat is another man’s poison.”

So it is very important to clear the allergy to the nutrients. Allergic people can tolerate food that is low in nutrition better than nutritious food. But upon clearing the allergy, you should try to eat more wholesome, nutritious foods. You should avoid refined, bleached food that is devoid of nutrients. Many people who are feeling poorly due to undiagnosed food allergies, may take vitamins or other supplements to increase their vitality after they get treated for the specific allergy.

If they happen to be allergic to the nutritional supplements they are taking, this can actually make them feel worse. Only after clearing those allergies, can their bodies properly assimilate them.
