White and Green Tea
Posted by kattedonn on June 7th, 2014
When it comes to drinking a hot beverage, most people would choose coffee or hot chocolate. However, teas are a much healthier alternative and it doesn’t take much effort to include them in your diet. For example, white tea is one of the beverages with the highest levels of antioxidants. These will not only keep you healthier and young longer, but they will also protect your body from viruses and bacteria infections and many other diseases.
Green tea is loaded with healthy nutrients and there is no doubt that it is one of the healthiest beverages around. It contain many powerful antioxidants. By its regular consumption, your entire organism is empowered and your immune system can actually fight better against viruses and bacteria. Regular green tea drinking has been reported to be associated with a decreased risk of many life style related health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, cancers, arthritis and osteoporotic fractures.
Green tea is also a very effective weight loss supplement. Scientists have discovered that drinking green tea results in increased metabolism rate (burning more calories). It also improves brain functions. The caffeine contained in green teas has been reported to be somehow different from that of coffee. As Chinese traditional wisdom sums it up, green tea ‘gives an alert mind and clam body’!
In a similar way as green teas, white tea is also a very healthy beverage. It is one of the least processed teas and filled with antioxidants. It prevents your body from accelerated aging by neutralizing the free radicals that cause your body to degenerate.
White tea is also known for its cancer preventing properties. It inhibits the growth of cancer cells and prevents the apparition of others. It is also a great way to lower your blood pressure without using medicine and has been known to have profound antiviral effects. Aged white teas had been used to treat infections for a long time in China before the contemporary invention of the antibiotics.
No matter which kind of tea you choose, keep in mind that you get the most benefits from consuming fresh seasonal teas. I personally love a cup of hot tea in winter. Chilled teas in summer is just as beneficial. Remember however tea is a food but not medicine. Pick a selection of premium teas and enjoy them on a regular base, the long term benefits are just a fraction of the life style you enjoy including tea drinking itself.
