It was three years ago when I first wrote a blog about the virtues of green tea. (You can read it by clicking on the ARCHIVE – 29 APRIL 2012). A research study in Tokyo suggested that green tea drinkers were more active and healthier.
Now a more recent small research study in Poland, published in the Scientific Journal, extolled the health benefits of drinking green tea. Here is a quote from the report which explains it all:
“Green tea is known to exert anti-obesity activity like reduction of adipocyte differentiation and proliferation, lipogenics, fat mass, body weight and fat absorption“.
So now you know!
I have always been worried about my adipocyte differentiation and proliferation but if went to my GP I’m sure he would think I had gone nuts.
On top of all this, I recently came across a blog all about the virtues of tea on the iSeniorsolutions website. They particularly paid attention to benefits of drinking green tea and how it helps regulate glucose levels for diabetics. It also improves cholesterol levels. and even better it contains an anti-oxidant called “Catechin” which helps destroy bacteria and therefore reduces tooth decay. I don’t know why we are not drinking gallons of the stuff – it would save the NHS a fortune.
I will be trying lots of different teas in future and no doubt be joining the queue in the cartoon below 🙂
My theory is simpler. It is all down to the extra exercise you get walking back and forth to the loo :-).
