Health Benefits of Green Tea

New in Personalized Living Webzine:

Quoted Text
Scientists have started to confirm the health benefits of green tea that the Chinese recorded over 4,000 years ago! At a conference sponsored by the American Institute for Cancer Research, scientists presented new and intriguing evidence about phytochemicals in green tea that may help prevent normal cells from developing into cancer and spreading. Studies conducted by the University of Murcia in Spain and the John Innes Center in Norwich, England have discovered that green tea can prevent cancer cells from growing. Green tea contains a compound called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Studies indicate that EGCG stops cancer cells from growing by binding with an enzyme, called dihydrofolate reductase, in the body. Scientists have also found that the structure of EGCG is very similar to a cancer drug called methotrexate. They discovered that EGCG kills cancer cells in the same way that the cancer drug does.

i always wonder IF 1 cup of matcha tea is equivalent at a "traditional" tea with leaves in hot water...

http://www.matchasource.com/matcha-tea-health-benefits-s/14.htm

here it is said that it is not. is it true? i mean.. on the web there are a lot of stories that could be better verified, nevertheless i have the doubt..

Swami says 4 cups/glass daily, i would be grateful if someone could share any info.

Thanks Chloe for the link. Pretty much addresses Santina's question.  

I am very caffeine sensitive, but will give matcha a try in low doses. As this article states, matcha has less caffeine than coffee--but I wouldn't dream of drinking a cup of coffee. Yikes.  That would send me to the moon and back!   I do love Mr Itari's and trust that it is of the highest quality since DrD vouches for it.

this is a very good point of view......actually i've never thought about it before
in my case the coffee has "that" effect.

anyway i use matcha also for cooking.....sometimes i even add a very tiny amount of powder into the yogurt.

Hmmmnnn... Lovely color, too. I wonder if this is where all of these products like ice cream flavored with green tea get the color and flavor.

Does anyone know if matcha can be added (un-brewed) to food for the same benefits? Must it be brewed to release the antioxidants, etc?

just wanted to share this because the company is very reasonably priced, have a wide variety of teas and this one in particular has four diamond ingredients from my swami list
http://www.enjoyingtea.com/mangogreentea.html
This pan fired green sencha tea has notes of sweet fresh mangos, pineapples, and mallow flowers. The sencha style green tea was manufactured in Hunan Province in South Eastern China. This tea is very smooth and has a sweet taste with an almost honey like finish that enhances the natural mango flavors. Serve over ice for a real summer treat! have not tried it yet but I sure want to


nothing to do? who has that!?

Oops... should have read Santina's link  

Quoted Text
Every day, countless people throw away valuable antioxidants and minerals. While seemingly unimaginable, thats exactly what happens when you brew a cup of green tea because water can only extract a fraction of green teas benefits. The majority actually remains unused, trapped in the tea leaves. In reality, the only way to truly take advantage of green teas full potential is to consume the entire leaf. But that doesnt mean you need to start eating tea leaves. The simplest solution is to just enjoy a bowl of matcha. Because matcha is straight, stoneground tea leaves, matcha provides you with green teas powerful arsenal of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids in a way no other green tea can.

I have added the used green leaves to soups and stews before no one knew. when I tried smoothies I added a bit of green tea to get that extra boost but smoothies have never held me so I even got rid of my blinder. I might try it again when I get the baby bullet for making Morgans food. the big blinder just made too much for me.

it does make sense to me, it really does!
i mean: one thing is to drink blueberry juice, pretty much another to eat them!
so i think it is the same with tea leaves as well as for everything else

I could see a little dry matcha going into my morning smoothie.

Does anyone recall....

A while ago, somewhere on these boards, someone cautioned against overusing anti-oxidants due to a certain status. Maybe Warrior, nonnie, or cancer history? I don't remember. Does anyone know if there are contra-indications for high doses of anti-oxidants?

Averno--your comment about high does of anti-oxidants makes me think of the old adage--everything in moderation. But I wouldn't think adding a little matcha to our diets would tip the scales too much.

The warning is about not taking Trehalose at the same time as green tea because of the quercitin in the green tea or with anything containing quercitin, i.e. certain other foods. Google 'foods  containing quercitin". It is more efficient without quercitin.
