Good & Bad Health Benefits of Tea

Tea is the most consumed beverage on the planet after water. Many cultures, Chinese, Japanese, English, and Indian consume tea on a daily basis. Whether it be white, green, oolong, black or other,
The antioxidants in tea, called flavonoids, are largely responsible for tea's health-boosting properties.
There is a group of flavonoids called catechins which prevent oxidative damage to cells and give tea the power to reduce a person's risk of several types of cancer, including breast, bladder, skin, lung, colon and esophageal. These catechins are more effective than either vitamin A or C at halting the damage of oxidation, a by-product of normal metabolism.

Cardiovascular Benefits
Habitual consumption of green and oolong tea significantly reduce the risk of hypertension. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a risk factor for strokes and heart attacks.
The antioxidants in green, black and oolong teas help block the oxidation of LDL cholesterol, increase HDL cholesterol and improve artery function. High LDL and low HDL are both risk factors for cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis.
Decaffeinated, ready-to-drink and instant teas have fewer beneficial compounds and may not offer the same benefits as freshly-brewed tea.

Green Tea
Green tea is a very healthy beverage.
It has lots of antioxidants and nutrients that have powerful effects on the body. This includes improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and many other incredible benefits. Many of the bioactive compounds in the tea leaves, do make it into the final drink, which contains large amounts of important nutrients.
It is loaded with polyphenols, which function as powerful antioxidants. These substances can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting cells and molecules from damage.
One of the more powerful compounds in green tea is the antioxidant Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which has been studied to treat various diseases and may be one of the main reasons green tea has such powerful medicinal properties.
Green tea also has small amounts of minerals that are important for health.
Green tea does more than just keep you awake, it can also make you smarter. The key active ingredient is caffeine, which is a known stimulant. Caffeine has been intensively studied before and consistently leads to improvements in various aspects of brain function, including improved mood, vigilance, reaction time and memory
However… green tea contains more than just caffeine. It also has the amino acid L-theanine, which is able to cross the blood-brain barrier. L-theanine increases the activity of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which has anti-anxiety effects. It also increases dopamine and the production of alpha waves in the brain. Because of the L-theanine and the smaller dose of caffeine, green tea can give you a much milder and different kind of "buzz" than coffee.
If you look at the ingredients list for any fat burning supplement, chances are that green tea will be on that list. This is because green tea has been shown to increase fat burning and boost the metabolic rate. Fat oxidation was increased by 17%, indicating that green tea may selectively increase the burning of fat
Cancer is caused by uncontrolled growth of cells. It is one of the world's leading causes of death.
It is well known that oxidative damage contributes to the development of cancer and that antioxidants can have a protective effect. Green tea is an excellent source of powerful antioxidants, so it makes perfect sense that it could reduce your risk of cancer, which it appears to do:
Breast cancer: A meta-analysis of observational studies found that women who drank the most green tea had a 22% lower risk of developing breast cancer, the most common cancer in women.
Prostate cancer: One study found that men drinking green tea had a 48% lower risk of developing prostate cancer, which is the most common cancer in men.
Colorectal cancer: A study of 69,710 Chinese women found that green tea drinkers had a 57% lower risk of colorectal cancer.
Death of all causes: 23% lower in women, 12% lower in men.
Death from heart disease: 31% lower in women, 22% lower in men.
Death from stroke: 42% lower in women, 35% lower in men.
In order to feel better, lose weight and lower your risk of chronic diseases, then you might want to consider making green tea a regular part of your life.
Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia sinensis leaves that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process used to make oolong and black tea.[1] Green tea originated in China, but its production has spread to many countries in Asia.

Rooibos Tea:
Rooibos tea has gained popularity in America in recent years, as many want to take advantage of its ability to prevent serious illnesses. The tea comes from the shrub Aspalathus Linearis, which is only found on the slopes of Cape of Good Hope in South Africa.
It's quite popular in Japan, Germany, Holland and England. The tea has 50 times more antioxidants than green tea. It's also rich in Vitamin C, low in tannins and may ease digestive problems. And it is caffeine free.
Anti-inflammatory
Rooibos tea is rich in polyphenols including aspalathin and nothofagin, which are two polyphenol antioxidants. These antioxidants help protect the body by fighting free radicals or unstable cells that attack healthy cells to stabilize themselves. The polyphenols in rooibos tea have anti-inflammatory properties, which assists in preventing heart-related illnesses. Finally, the antiviral properties of polyphenols provide an added boost to the immune system, which helps protect the body from common colds, viruses and the flu.
Relieves Hypertension
Rooibos tea is a natural remedy to help relieve and prevent hypertension. It works by lowering the blood pressure. Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, occurs when too much blood is forced against the artery walls within the body. This may lead to health issues including heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States. As a result, many people may benefit from drinking rooibos tea to assist with their hypertension.
Aids the Respiratory System
Rooibos tea is a bronchodilator. A bronchodilator is a substance that dilates the bronchi and bronchioles, and in doing so, it increases airflow to the lungs making breathing easier. With the decrease of resistance in the respiratory airway, drinkers of rooibos tea will get the added boost of preventing common cardiovascular diseases including atheroschelorsis and heart attacks. It may also help combat the symptoms of asthma.
Good for the Bones and Teeth
Rooibos tea is rich in several minerals including manganese, calcium and fluoride. These minerals promote healthy bones and teeth. As a result, drinking rooibos tea may help prevent common health conditions including joint pain, osteoporosis and arthritis. Manganese works by stimulating enzymes in the body used to help build more bone mass and repair damage. Fluoride is important when maintaining healthy teeth and is even found in most toothpaste and mouthwashes. Finally, calcium is important for healthy, strong bones and teeth.
Boosts the Digestive Tract
Rooibos tea is also rich in antispasmodic agents that activate potassium ions in the body. These agents help ease stomach cramps, abdominal pain and aid digestion. The tea may also be used as a natural remedy for irritable bowel syndrome. The antispasmodic agents help the digestive tract by smoothing out muscles in the gut. To get the most out of this effect, sufferers should drink a cup of this tea about 30 minutes prior to a meal they believe may trigger digestive problems.
Improves the Skin
The tea is also rich in alpha hydroxy acid and zinc. Both of these nutrients are great for the skin and may help alleviate several skin problems including acne, pimples, sunburns and uneven skin. Alpha-hydroxy acids are also found in many upscale cosmetic products because it helps reduce the signs of ageing including wrinkles. It's a common ingredient in chemical peels because it can revitalize the skin and leave an illuminating glow. Because healthy skin starts from within, the tea is a great way to improve the skin in a natural way. Zinc is also important and necessary for clear skin. The nutrient assists with building the structure of cell membranes, healing wounds, protects against UV rays and has anti-inflammatory properties.
Helps Prevent Type II Diabetes
Rooibos tea contains aspalathin, which has a hypoglycemic effect on the body. Aspalathin is a rare type of antioxidant that helps balance blood sugar and improves insulin resistance in the body. It may also promote glucose absorption in the muscles. These effects may help prevent drinkers from developing type II Diabetes. This is because the nutrient prevents the spikes in blood sugar that may cause type II Diabetes. Those with a family history of diabetes may especially benefit from drinking this type of tea.
Promotes Healthy Hair
Rooibos tea is rich in several important minerals required for hair growth. This includes zinc, calcium, copper and potassium. Regularly consuming rooibos tea may help increase hair growth and strengthen hair fibres, so hair grows healthy and strong. The tea may also help prevent hair loss, as its active ingredients help remove dead skin cells that may block hair follicles and prevent hair from growing. Furthermore, the anti-inflammatory effects of the tea may help relieve the symptoms of dandruff by soothing the scalp. The tea is rich in polyphenols, and these ingredients promote shiny, soft hair and protect against sun damage.
Improves Blood Circulation
Many Americans suffer from poor blood circulation, which may lead to serious health issues including a heart attack. Rooibos tea contains chrysoeriols, which is a flavonoid with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. This compound aids blood circulation and has been linked to reducing cholesterol. It does this by preventing the activity of certain enzymes that are known to trigger cardiovascular diseases.

But, hey, that's just my opinion.
