Organic Raspberry Green Tea 3 oz.
Organic Raspberry Green Tea 3 oz. Organic Raspberry Flavored Green Tea 3 oz. Pour 1 cup hot water over 1 tsp. tea, steep 3-5 minutes, strain, & enjoy. This is not only a beautiful tea, (pink!) it is good for you and its flavor is wonderful as well.

As with all green teas, do not over-steep as it brings out the bitter tannins in the leaf. Five minutes or less is perfect.

Ingredients: Organic green tea, organic raspberries, organic hibiscus, natural raspberry flavor. Green tea leaves are steamed and air dried (not fermented like the black teas), maintaining more of the healthy properties of the original green leaf.
Green Tea Benefits

Green Tea is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.

Green tea is a powerful antioxidant reducing the level of free radicals causing cell damage.

Research indicates green tea & green tea extract affects weight loss, cholesterol, heart disease, alzheimer's, diabetes, and cancer.

Green Tea is effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots.

Green Tea helps kill the bacteria that causes dental plaque.

EGCG has been found to block the infectivity of the Influenza virus. Researchers have found that EGCG blocks the Influenza virus binding and entry into cells



Organically grown Green Tea is rich in polyphenols and anti-oxidants that fight free radicals that damage cells and tissue. An 8 oz. cup of Green Tea has as much potency as a cup of blueberries, a best source of anti-oxidants, and as much vitamin C as a lemon. It also contains magnesium, riboflavin, niacin, folic acid and potassium. In 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells.

There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

To sum up, here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:

cancer

rheumatoid arthritis

high cholesterol levels

cariovascular disease

infection impaired immune function



What makes green tea so special? The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots. The latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and stroke. Links are being made between the effects of drinking green tea and the "French Paradox." For years, researchers were puzzled by the fact that, despite consuming a diet rich in fat, the French have a lower incidence of heart disease than Americans. The answer was found to lie in red wine, which contains resveratrol, a polyphenol that limits the negative effects of smoking and a fatty diet. In a 1997 study, researchers from the University of Kansas determined that EGCG is twice as powerful as resveratrol, which may explain why the rate of heart disease among Japanese men is quite low, even though approximately seventy-five percent are smokers.

Why don't other Chinese teas have similar health-giving properties? Green, oolong, and black teas all come from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. What sets green tea apart is the way it is processed. Green tea leaves are steamed, which prevents the EGCG compound from being oxidized. By contrast, black and oolong tea leaves are made from fermented leaves, which results in the EGCG being converted into other compounds that are not nearly as effective in preventing and fighting various diseases.

Other Benefits: New evidence is emerging that green tea can even help dieters. In November, 1999, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the results of a study at the University of Geneva in Switzerland. Researchers found that men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned more calories than those given only caffeine or a placebo.

Green tea can even help prevent tooth decay! Just as its bacteria-destroying abilities can help prevent food poisoning, it can also kill the bacteria that causes dental plaque.

Meanwhile, skin preparations containing green tea - from deodorants to creams - are starting to appear on the market.

Green tea is a powerful antioxidant reducing the level of free radicals causing cell damage -- the origins of breast cancer and prostate cancer. Research indicates green tea & green tea extract effects weight loss, diet, cholesterol, heart disease, alzheimer's, diabetes, and cancer.

The preventative medicinal properties of green tea polyphenols are broad and numerous.

The green tea polyphenol EGCG has been found to block the infectivity of the Influenza virus. Researchers have found that EGCG blocks the Influenza virus binding and entry into cells in a laboratory cell culture. The premise is that to block the spread of influenza in the body and its damaging effects to various tissues, inhibiting the binding of the virus to cells is very important. The virus needs to bind to a cell to enter, infect, and subsequently destroy the cell (the virus takes over the cell's metabolic machinery and directs it to solely make more influenza viruses, eventually destroying the cell in the process). Thus, blocking the binding of the virus halts the spread of infection within the body. In summary, green tea polyphenols (especially EGCG) demonstrate promise as inhibitors of Influenza virus.

Although further studies are needed, green tea polyphenols may prove an important addition to the Western diet in preventing diseases like cancer and reducing the oxidative effects of free oxygen radicals.
