Water is the number one consumed fluid in the world.  But you already knew that.  What do you think the second most popular drink in the world is?  The answer might surprise you.  It’s tea.  One of the reasons so many people drink tea may be due to the health benefits.  Tea, in particular, green tea, has many health advantages.  Chemicals called the polyphenols found in green tea are potent antioxidants.  They’re helpful in fighting heart disease and inflammatory problems.  Green tea has been touted as a cancer fighter, but studies do not support this claim.  Overall, green tea might not be cure-all and it probably gets a great deal more press than it deserves as a treatment for all sorts of problems, but it is a healthy choice when you’re thinking about a relaxing drink.  Clearly, we know this much.  Tea does have a calming effect.

The Health Benefits of Green Tea

The Health Benefits of Green Tea

Green tea has been used for centuries as a cure for all types of ills. One of the biggest claims by those who endorse green tea is that it helps fight cancer, but studies haven’t supported those claims over the years. What the studies do support is the fact that drinking green tea actually helps reduce the chances of developing a wide variety of problems including heart disease. Tea, in various forms, can help people relax and in many cultures, it’s associated with rest time. The average American drinks 155 cups of tea each year. The good news is that tea is relatively safe, however, be concerned about products that are sold in tea extract pill forms. Again, you can definitely have a cup a tea if everything else is fine and just not worry about it.

There are numerous benefits of drinking green tea, and now you can add one more. According to a study in the American Journal of Epidemiology, drinking several cups of green tea a day could reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer. Japanese scientists said a substance called catechin in green tea may be contributing to reducing risk by curbing levels of testosterone, a male hormone seen as a risk factor to prostate cancer. Now, the incidence of prostate cancer is much lower in Asian than Western populations. The study began on the assumption that this may be linked to the high consumption of green tea in Asian populations. This particular study was small and there are plans for a larger study looking at the amount of green tea. There could be other ways to use it.
