Benefit of drinking green tea: The proof is in – drinking tea is healthy, says Harvard Women’s Health Watch
Although tea drinking has been associated with health benefits for centuries, only in recent years have its medicinal properties been investigated scientifically.
The October issue of Harvard Women’s Health Watch recognizes the healthy power of tea while helping readers get the most out of their cups. Tea’s health benefits are largely due to its high content of flavonoids — plant-derived compounds that are antioxidants.
Green tea is the best food source of a group called catechins. In test tubes, catechins are more powerful than vitamins C and E in halting oxidative damage to cells and appear to have other disease-fighting properties.
Studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder. Additional benefits for regular consumers of green and black teas include a reduced risk for heart disease.
The antioxidants in green, black, and oolong teas can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL (good) cholesterol and improve artery function.
