The Benefits Of Tea

Tea’s Role in Preventing Cancer and Heart Disease

It’s believed that free radicals can cause heart disease, some kinds of cancer and increase the risk of strokes. Recent research has shown the following: * Drinking tea with its high antioxidant levels may help protect the body from cancer by combating dangerous free radical activity and inhibiting uncontrolled cell growth * Anti-oxidants may have curative properties that inhibit the development of heart disease and reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack * Tea flavonoids may increase coronary flow and promote healthy blood vessel functionality * Consuming tea lowers cholesterol levels.

Tea’s Role in Naturally Combating Anxiety and Stress

L-theanine, a unique amino acid, accounts for over 50% of the free amino acids in tea leaves and less than 2% of the total weight of dry leaf in both black and green teas. Studies show that L-theanine may promote relaxation and calm by influencing particular chemicals in the brain. Japanese researchers discovered that L-theanine is derivative of glutamic acid, a neurotransmitter located in the brain. Easily absorbed by the brain, it influences chemicals such as dopamine and serotonin, which affect mood. Studies show that the amino acid, without causing drowsiness, enhances overall concentration and focus. The effect of L-theanine in combination with caffeine may contribute to the feeling of increased energy and overall calm that many tea drinkers experience.
