Green tea originates from China and has become associated with many cultures in Asia from Japan to the Middle East. Recently it has become more widespread in the West, where black tea is traditionally consumed. Over the last few decades green tea has been subjected to many scientific and medical studies to determine the extent of its long-purported health benefits, with some evidence suggesting regular green tea drinkers may have lower chances of heart disease and developing certain types of cancer. Researchers have found an apparent connection between green tea consumption and a reduced risk of developing type 1 diabetes. The key player in this new study is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) found in the tea. The tea has also been useful for weight loss management.

Green tea is a relative newcomer in the bone-health arena, but previous studies have also found that epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a component of green tea, blocks the activity of two molecules, IL-6 and cyclooxygenase-2 (Cox-2), which play a role in breaking down bone.



It may also help protect fatty livers after a liver transplant. Green tea may even have fat-burning properties, which are related to a class of polyphenols called catechins -- naturally occurring antioxidants that have a number of physiological and pharmacological properties.

Some possible benefits of our Organic Green Tea may include:

● Fighting against heart disease
● Fighting Dementia
● Reduces high blood lipids
● Combating Arteriosclerosis
● Helping keep bones strong
● Fighting Cerebral thrombus
● Reducing risk of developing type 1 diabetes
● Preventing the reduction of glutathione by a whopping 87-100%
● Helping reduce rosacea when applied topically
● Reduces pain & inflammation related to rheumatoid arthritis
● Fighting certain types of cancer including prostate cancer
● Supporting adrenal function
● Helping weight loss
● Inhibiting the matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) enzyme, which contribute to age-related degradation of the skin matrix
