Sitting in your living room in your harem pants, feeling all “zen - like” sipping your green tea.  Does this sound like you? Green tea has become the latest fad.  It’s healthy and it makes you feel sophisticated to some degree. You may have even heard that drinking green tea is an effective way to lose weight.  So is green tea really healthy and do you really lose weight from it? In this article, we discuss all the health benefits of drinking green tea.

Green tea has many ingredients in it such as caffeine, theobromine, saponins, theophylline, vitamins and epigallocatechin.

Thermogenesis creates heat in the body, which increases your metabolic rate.

The compound Epigallocatechin (EGCG) boosts your metabolic rate and reduces yours appetite.

Drinking tea has been around for ages, but it is only in recent times that the real health benefits of drinking green tea have been explored.  The main health benefits of drinking green tea come from the antioxidants that it contains.

1.These antioxidants are said to be active contributors in fighting all types of cancers.

2. Cholesterol is another disease that green tea combats.  Green tea helps keep your arteries healthy and unblocked, which will help prevent heart attacks.

3. Green tea also regulates blood sugar. Green tea keeps your body hydrated, and it does wonders for your skin.

    Lotus Eater As a tea lover who savour my old puerh tea everyday, it is my personal experience, and confirmed by medical tests that tea can really bring down bad cholesterol level, reduce blood sugar reading and blood pressure. These are the very problems that afflict the present generation of men and women who eat too much and workout too little. I strongly believe that consistent consumption of tea can add a few more quality years to our lives.

    masterwordsmith Thank you, Lotus Eater, for your very timely comment. I have just become an avid tea drinker and enjoy green tea, jasmine, oolong and rooibos. I have yet to try pu er tea but hope to do so soon.

    Personally, I can see the results of tea drinking and agree with your observations.

    By any chance, are you a fan of Somerset Maugham? Just wondering because of your nom de plume. I love his books, especially 'Of Human Bondage'.

    Take care and thank you for sharing. Do keep in touch!

    Kind regards
