Know About the Health Benefits of Green Tea

Green tea is popular among fitness enthusiasts

Green tea is popular among fitness enthusiasts and those trying to shed some kilos. Whether you are trying to boost your overall health, or just your metabolism, a couple cups of that tea can help massively, say experts.

We speak to Dolly Kumar, founder-director at Gaia – Good Health and Razi Khan, tea sommelier and director of sales and marketing at Typhoo Tea to find out.

How does green tea help?

Kumar: Green Tea is rich in antioxidants, particularly epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG, and that’s why green tea can do wonders for your health. Regular consumption of it enhances the body’s metabolism, aids weight loss and helps in case of obesity, helps reduce blood cholesterol, helps control anxieties and also has anti-aging benefits.

How much and when to take?

Kumar: 3-5 cups a day before and after meals, is ideal. Avoid consuming it post-dinner since it contains a meager amount of caffeine.

Khan: The intake should be between 2-3 cups a day. It assists in curbing appetite and should not be taken in excess. My advice is to take a cup in the morning or evening. One can drink after meals to boost your metabolism too. Advisable not to take it before breakfast.

How to choose from available flavors?

Kumar: This depends on primarily taste preference. Some like their tea minty, some like it lemony while some prefer the simple and classic taste of plain tea, and so on. Furthermore, different variants of the tea has added benefits of the active ingredients such as tea with ginger helps improve digestion and helps in sore throat, lemon helps control hunger pangs, lemon and honey helps burn fat, Cardamom helps lower blood pressure, Tulsi helps boost immunity and Jasmine helps relieve stress.

Khan: A cup of tea that helps to heal, energize, stimulate and uplift your mood, improves your health, heals emotional wounds and dissolves cultural barriers is always a good idea. It’s like your very own magic potion but finding the exact right blend for your current state of mind is essential.
