All the benefits of green tea

More than a billion cups of tea are drunk every day around the world, mostly by women. A particularly good gesture for health because the tea, whatever it is, improves the defenses of the body by giving him many antioxidants (vitamins C, E, zinc, selenium ...).

The benefits of tea were reinforced by a survey * unveiled in Japan in September 2006: tea reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, improves the distribution of fat and slows down cerebral aging.
Another positive point, theine or caffeine tea stimulates the mind.

Benefits on cardiovascular diseases
Drinking tea lowers bad cholesterol and fat. This has the effect of reducing mortality from cardiovascular diseases of people who consume regularly. It drops by 23% in women who drink at least five cups daily.

The benefits on the silhouette
Be careful, the tea has no effect on the weight, but on the silhouette, it does not lose weight. Indeed, its consumption promotes a better distribution of fat, especially in terms of size and hips. It can, however, help maintain weight after dieting because it activates energy expenditure.

The benefits on brain aging
The neuroprotective effect of tea is one of the most promising research topics. Thanks to its great wealth of antioxidants, this drink has interesting virtues in terms of cognitive functions.
Researchers have observed that people over 65, regular tea drinkers, are less affected by brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.
Of course, these advances in the cognitive domain remain to be confirmed by other studies.

Well consume it
To keep all its properties the tea must infuse at least three minutes, be consumed hot and quickly so that its components, including antioxidants, do not fall to the bottom of the cup and do not lose their effectiveness. Be careful, it must be drunk without sugar.
