Health benefit – humble Green Tea

Health benefit – humble Green Tea

“More than a decade’s worth of research about green tea’s health benefits —

particularly its potential to fight cancer and heart disease —

has been more than intriguing, as have limited studies about green tea’s role in lowering cholesterol,                                                                               
burning fat,preventing diabetes and stroke, and staving off dementia.

“I believe in green tea based on everything written about it,” says Katherine Tallmadge, RD, LD, a nutritionist and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. “Green tea, white tea, black tea — I like all of them.”

Still, real-world evidence is lacking; most of the consistent findings about green tea’s health benefits have come out of the lab.

The few large-scale human studies that have focused on green tea’s impact on heart disease and cancer are promising, but many of those were conducted in the East, where green tea is a dietary mainstay.

The outcomes are likely influenced by other lifestyle factors such as high consumption of fish and soy protein, says cardiologist Nieca Goldberg, MD, a spokeswoman for the American Heart Association and medical director of the New York University Women’s Heart Center.

But Goldberg agrees with other health professionals: green tea has important antioxidants and compounds that help in maintaining good health.” WebMD

It’s a delicate balance of making sure that what you burn isn’t outdone by what you take in.

It’s all about energy – energy in, energy out.

Lifestyle, age and genetics all play a part in determining our metabolic rate. A low metabolic rate helps the body to conserve energy supplies but unless those supplies are expended, weight gain may occur. Whether your metabolic rate is slower due to genetics or age you may find it harder to control your weight in the long term.

The most effective strategy to increase your metabolic weight is a daily dose of moderate exercise – just enough to increase your heart rate and make you out of breath. This won’t just burn up extra calories but can keep your metabolism revved up for some hours afterwards, as the muscles burn calories to repair themselves.

Your diet is an important aspect of a healthy exercise programme. It’s not simply about counting calories but also about making sure you have the right nutrients to support an exercise programme as well as a mental commitment to that routine.

Thermogenesis is the term used to describe the process of heat production in organisms – and supports calorie expenditure.

Most commonly it takes place during and immediately after exercise and also manifests itself as shivering where the body is actually maintaining its core temperature by burning additional calories.
