Green tea is touted as a health drink and rightly so, as it has numerous health and beauty benefits. The three main varieties of tea – green, oolong and black, all come from the same plant, called Camellia Sinensis. The difference is in the level of fermentation. Green tea is not fermented at all, only steamed, which makes it the most health promoting of the three. Oolong tea is partly fermented, and black tea is fully fermented. Fermentation reduces the antioxidant content in tea and increases caffeine concentration. Green tea contains the most antioxidants, while black tea has 2-3 times more caffeine than green tea.
The Matcha green tea is a special type of tea, where the Camellia plants are grown and harvested in shade. This results in higher levels of chlorophyll and the amino acid L-theanine. Fushi’s Green Tea & Matcha is the first innovative supplement on the market, combining a concentrated green tea extract with pure Matcha powder for the most effective health benefits.
The main bioactive compounds in green tea may help improve your health and wellbeing, as well as make you feel and look younger. The antioxidant polyphenols, such as flavonoids and catechins in green tea help to scavenge free radicals, which can damage our cells and cause havoc in the body. Free radicals are thought to be one of the main players in ageing. The antioxidants in green tea can help to neutralise the free radical compounds and have an important role in improving wellbeing.
Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) is the most potent active antioxidant component in green tea, that can help reduce oxidative damage to body cells and tissues. Most importantly, it is exclusively found only in green tea as there is no fermentation which affects the compound. Oolong and black teas do not contain this powerful antioxidant.
Green tea contains caffeine and an amino acid L-theanine, which have synergistic effects for improving the brain function by either inhibiting or increasing certain neurotransmitters.
The combined effects of caffeine and L-theanine create relaxed, stable energy and increased productivity without the jitteriness of coffee.
Additionally, green tea has been known and used as a weight loss aid. Combined with a nutritious diet and an effective exercise programme, green tea can help assist in the process of weight loss.
