You’ve probably heard a lot about the health benefits of herbs, especially the benefits of green tea, considered by many to be the best “anti-aging supplement.”
According to dozens of studies, regular consumption of this tea can reduce the risk of developing heart disease or Alzheimer’s disease, help you maintain better bone mineral density, prevent eye diseases that affect vision in old age, prevent strokes and even prolong your life.
Green tea consists of leaves that are not fermented, so they contain the highest levels of antioxidants. For example, flavonoid antioxidants make up about 30 percent of the dry weight of green tea leaves.
Some of the antioxidants and healing compounds found in green tea include polyphenols, catechins and various other types of flavonoids – the same anti-aging compounds found in things like red wine, blueberries and dark chocolate. Although it contains small amounts of caffeine, the consumption of green tea is associated with more health benefits than even many of the healthiest foods available to us. Studies have found that the benefits of green tea are due to the fact that this tea contains more healing compounds than many other herbs, spices, fruits and vegetables, which really makes it a powerful “superfood”.
