Green tea has such a rich history that information about it has been overgrown with numerous rumors and myths. The presence of a large amount of beneficial biologically active substances in the tea leaf has led to the fact that some people use green tea for weight loss, including it in their diets. But does tea help you lose weight?
Green tea composition
The leaf of the tea bush is practically not subjected to any processing to obtain green tea, therefore its composition is as close as possible to the original natural one. Unfermented whole leaf tea contains:
- minerals and trace elements;
- polyphenols and tocopherols;
- antioxidants and vitamin C;
Each of the components participates in the life process, activating the work of the systems of the human body. For example, the presence of trace elements is important for the full functioning of the cardiovascular and nervous systems, polyphenols are involved in the breakdown of fats, antioxidants reduce the amount of free radicals, and tea caffeine invigorates and tones up.
The effect of green tea on the body
All conducted research on the benefits of green tea is experimental and there is still no reliable scientific base that indisputably and unconditionally confirms the health properties of this drink. But it’s not for nothing that the Chinese have believed that green tea has healing powers for 4000 years ?
Based on the composition of unfermented tea leaves, it can be assumed that with regular consumption of green tea, positive changes in the body will begin to occur, such as:
- normalization of blood pressure levels;
- elimination of toxins and toxins;
- strengthening the walls of blood vessels, reducing the number of cholesterol plaques;
- improving the condition of the skin, hair, nails.
Slimming green tea
Green tea is included in diets because it supports the body’s immune defenses, which is extremely important during periods of dietary restrictions. And it is also noticed that green tea has a diuretic effect, therefore, with its frequent use, excess fluid is excreted from the body, reducing the volume of the body.
A huge amount of nutrients in a tea leaf are only important if they are assimilated by the body, and for this it is necessary to follow the brewing technology. The optimum water temperature for the extraction of green tea is up to 80 degrees: with higher heating, all biochemical compounds are destroyed. When buying good high quality varieties, one serving (5 grams per 1 cup) is enough for 5-8 spills. The indicator of the consumed tea is the loss of its taste and smell in the finished drink.
