The Benefits of Green Tea and your cholesterol levels

High Cholesterol is a problem running rampant in the United States. Green Tea is a great way to help in that endeavor. Take a look at some of these facts below:

Cholesterol, triglycerides, the protein apoB in LDLs, are words dreaded by humans of the modern age. However, with vast medicinal research especially in Asia, we are finding more solutions to Western Hemisphere problems.

We are finding that Green Tea not only aids in helping bad cholesterol levels deteriorate, but helping to slow the growth of cancer cells. Since Green Tea is home to many antioxidants, it's great as a natural healer. According to The Journal of the National Cancer Institute, there was an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal (stomach) cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. In another study by the University of Kansas, determined that EGCG may explain why the rate of heart disease among Japanese men is quite low, even though approximately seventy-five percent are smokers.

And more good news! It's not just green tea and cholesterol; it's also green tea and high blood pressure. Habitually drinking 5 to 10 cups a day of green tea lowers high blood pressure.

The medicinal use of Green Tea goes back to 4,000 years from the Chinese using it ot treat everything from headaches to depression!

Drinking green tea helps other ailments like rheumatoid arthritis, Cardiovascular disease, infection, and impaired immune function.

Green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols, especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a good anti-cancer element. Polyphenol limits the negative effects of smoking and a fatty diet.

It even helps with cleaning your teeth. The green tea acts as a bacteria killer and helps to promote stronger teeth to prevent decay.

These are just a few items besides cholesterol that will help your overall health
