majority of studies have focused on green tea, which is an
herbal tea that is most popular in China.
Be aware however that the Western world is coming to
appreciate the many healthy benefits that green tea yields.
Green tea is the only type of tea that is not fermented which
means that it retains all of its antioxidant properties while
others tea that are fermented lose some but not all of their
antioxidants during the process.
Due to the fact that green tea is composed of antioxidants
that are both strong and powerful, it therefore has many
benefits to health. One of the most significant benefits of
green tea is its unique ability to inactivate the negative
effects of the flu virus.
A substance called L-theaninie that is contained in green
tea causes the body to fight back harder and stronger when it
senses the presence of the virus that causes the flu. Drinking
green tea on a consistent basis will work to coat the membranes
of the throat and help to effectively neutralize the flu virus
when it rears its ugly head.
If you do not enjoy the taste of green tea but still want to
reap the benefits then consider gargling with it on a daily
basis. Green tea is effective in helping to lose weight.

Green tea is an excellent option for weight loss if you
engage in physical fitness on a regular basis but are not able
to reduce the amount of calories you take in. But that is not
all. Green tea has other benefits to health if consumed on a
regular basis. Green tea is able to effectively decrease the
level of blood sugar, as well as reducing the risk that heart
disease will develop. Green tea is also effective at decreasing
the risk of a variety of different cancers.
Even if you prefer to drink black tea or one of
the herbal teas you will still reap some benefits. Tea is
composed of large quantities of antioxidants that are given the
name polyphenols. Polyphenols help to protect the body against
the risk of strokes; inhibit the development of cancer cells
and decrease high blood pressure. Polyphenols also are
effective at decreasing cholesterol and they greatly improve
the rate at which blood flows to the heart.

diseases and infections. Be aware that both green teas and
white teas are less subject to processing than are black teas
and they therefore boost higher levels of polyphenols.
