Many Health Benefits of Green Tea

As you may know, the benefits of green tea may include:
Lowers total cholesterol and LDL (bad)-cholesterol levels
Increases HDL (good)-cholesterol levels
Reduces blood pressure
Lowers blood sugar
Acts as "blood thinner"
Reduces the risk of cancer
Reduces the risk of heart attack
Decreases the risk of stroke
Decrease the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis
Protects against Parkinson's disease
Enhances immune function
Acts as an antibacterial and antiviral agent
Helps burn extra calories
Prevents dental cavities and gum disease
Builds stronger bones
Boosts longevity
Green Tea - Increase Metabolism Naturally
A University of Geneva medical study showed that over a 24-hour period, green tea extract increases the metabolic rate by 4%. This increase in fat oxidation was higher than in subjects who used a placebo or caffeine. In addition, this stimulation of thermogenesis and fat oxidation by the green tea extract was not accompanied by an increase in heart rate. Thus, green tea extract has a distinct advantage over stimulant diet drugs, which can have adverse cardiovascular effects, especially for obese individuals with hypertension and other cardiovascular complications. The Green Tea 300 Weight Loss System provides a safe way to burn fat for healthy weight loss.
Green Tea - Suppress Appetite Safely
Scientists at the University of Chicago have found that green tea caused rats to lose up to 21 percent of their body weight. Rats injected with a green tea extract lost their appetites and consumed up to 60 percent less food after seven days of daily injections. The lead scientist on the study explained that a person would have to drink green tea almost constantly to obtain these results. Thus, the Green Tea 300 Weight Loss System was designed to provide the constant supply of high potency green tea needed to achieve these weight loss results.
Green Tea and Polyphenols
Unfortunately, polyphenols have a quick life span (short half life) of about 3 hours, thus the scientific reason behind researchers' recommendation to drink green tea a minimum of 8 times a day. This super antioxidant eliminates free radicals, the unstable molecules in the body that are the major cause of both aging and disease, which are continually attacking the body. EGCG, the most abundant and powerful of green tea's 5 main catechins, is dubbed the 'super antioxidant' because it is 200 times more powerful than the popular antioxidant vitamin E.

Just one example is a subgroup of polyphenols, exclusive to green tea, called catechins. These extremely high levels of polyphenols deliver green tea's unique results in several ways. Green Tea is the #1 source of polyphenols, chemical compounds found in fruits and vegetables.
So try green tea today to take advantage of what many people have already discovered and live a happier healthier life.
