11 Benefits of Green Tea That You Did not Know. 

I am a big drinker of green tea. If I drink so much, it's mostly because I've always heard it's good for you. Recently, a friend even told me that green tea was a good way to lose weight! That led me to research the benefits of green tea, which we talk about so often.

Why green tea? 

Green tea has been known for its medicinal benefits for millennia. Its origins are in China. But it is consumed throughout Asia for its many virtues. 

It is a drink that has several uses, ranging from reducing blood pressure to treating cancer. And why not black tea, then? Good question, because both come from the same plant: the tea tree! The difference between black tea and green tea is found in leaf treatment. Black tea is made in such a way that there is a fermentation of the leaves. 

On the contrary, green tea is treated to prevent this fermentation. The result is that green tea preserves its natural levels of antioxidants, in the form of polyphenols. These are the antioxidants that will give green tea its natural benefits. Here is a list of the surprising benefits of green tea - benefits that you probably do not know. 

These are benefits of green tea that are still debated, so do your own research if you plan to consume green tea for medicinal purposes. 

1. Weight loss 

You must have heard about the metabolism. This is the process by which our body burns calories. Green tea increases our metabolism. The polyphenols in green tea will intensify the oxidation of fat. They will also convert our food into calories. 

2. Diabetes 

Green tea could help control diabetes. It works as a regulator of our glucose levels after meals. As a result, it avoids insulin spikes and fat accumulation. 

3. Cardiovascular diseases 

Medical researchers believe that green tea acts on the lining of blood vessels. It helps them stay more flexible and better withstand changes in blood pressure. In addition, tea could prevent blood clotting, the main cause of heart attacks! 

4. Esophageal cancer 

Green tea reduces the risk of cancer of the esophagus. Many researchers believe that green tea is able to kill cancer cells. In addition, it would act without damaging healthy cells around cancer. 


5. Cholesterol 

Doctors distinguish good cholesterol (HDL) from bad cholesterol (LDL). Green tea reduces bad cholesterol. In addition, it improves the ratio of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol. 

6. Alzheimer's and Parkinson's Disease 

Researchers have found that green tea delays the deterioration caused by Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. Research on mice indicates that green tea protects and repairs neurons. 

7. Dental caries 

Green tea contains a powerful antioxidant, catechin. Several studies suggest that catechins can kill the bacteria and viruses that cause pharyngitis and dental caries.

8. Blood pressure 

Drinking green tea regularly would reduce the risk of high blood pressure. 

9. Depression 

Theanine is an amino acid, which is found in tea. It is a substance that has a restful and tranquilizing effect: a plus for tea drinkers! 

10. Antiviral and antibiotic 

Catechin also has antiviral and antibiotic properties, making green tea a very effective treatment. Indeed, research indicates that green tea would slow the spread of many diseases, from flu to cancer! 

11. For the skin 

Green tea would also be good for fighting wrinkles and aging skin. Indeed, green tea is an antioxidant that also acts as anti-inflammatory. According to several researches, the local use of tea will also protect the skin from sunburn.

The quantities to drink 

OK, you are convinced of the benefits of this miracle drink. Now the important question - how many cups should you drink per day? The research is not unanimous. Most recommend drinking 2 to 5 cups of tea a day. On the other hand, note that tea contains caffeine! If you react badly to caffeine, take care to limit yourself to 1 cup a day. Be careful, the tea also contains tannin. Since tannin can reduce the absorption of iron and folic acid, it is best to avoid it if you are trying to get pregnant (or if you already are)! Finally, you can also try mixing green tea with other ingredients with surprising virtues, such as ginger. Here, to look at these virtues, one might wonder why one would drink something other than green tea! :-)
