Green tea has the same genetic lineage as black tea. They originate from the same plant. Black tea has almost no medical uses because it is made from dried, then roasted leaves. The production of green tea involves immediate, gentle steaming of the fresh-picked leaves.

For eons of time, green tea has been China’s favorite beverage. Over the past two decades the western world has been exploring the healing attributes of this amazing herb. The gentle leaf processing technique is responsible for the high levels of polyphenols and antioxidants. These substances prevent the formation of free radicals. Lab studies have shown that green tea is a better source of antioxidants than foods rich in vitamins E and C.

Green tea protects against free-radical-induced diseases. The antioxidant Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) is the source of green tea’s healing power. Multiple studies reveal that green tea significantly reduces the risk of developing stomach cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer and breast cancer in women. It can effectively alleviate menopause hot flushes and stabilize estrogen levels.

Researchers have also discovered that green tea lowers cholesterol, prevents tooth decay, heart diseases and the formation of blood clots. Green tea improves asthma patients’ breathing. Green tea is strongly recommended for weight loss, because the naturally-contained caffeine suppresses appetite.

Mother Nature has granted us the healthiest beverage in recorded history.
