In today's stressful world where meetings, traffic jams take up a lot of our energy and we are all left tired and exhausted then tea which is a natural, herbal drink, refreshes our tired mind and body. This article provides the detailed information about the important benefits of green tea for health and beauty.

No other food or drink reported to have as many health benefits as green tea. Ancient Chinese Proverb also says that "Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one." Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world as hundreds of millions of people drink tea. There are three main varieties of tea- green, black and oolong but studies suggest that green tea has many health benefits. Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols.

Health Benefits of Green Tea

Results from one animal study says that polyphenols present in green tea block cholesterol from being absorbed in the intestine and also help the body get rid of cholesterol.

Diabetes: Green Tea also controls blood sugar levels. Green tea may help prevent the development of type 1 diabetes and also helps in regulating glucose in the body of people who suffers from type 1 diabetes.

Cancer: Polyphenols present in green tea play an important role in prevention of cancer as it helps in killing cancerous cells and stop them from growing.

Other Benefits: Drinking green tea also helps in preventing dental cavities. It may also b useful in inflammatory diseases, such as arthritis.
