Is regular consumption of Green tea beneficial?

by greentea2 » Nov 6th 14 4:41 am

A Harvard Medical School study discovered that regular consumption of tea could boost the body’s defences against infection. A component in tea was found in laboratory experiments to prime the immune system to attack invading bacteria, viruses and fungi, according to a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Researchers claim that the results give clear proof that five cups of tea a day sharpen the body’s disease defences. Hence it’s always better to consume Green tea daily.

Evan obviously jinxed the last thread by posting about his unwarranted oolong bias in this the green tea thread! I will accept it as karmic justice that the everseeing eye of MOD brought down upon him the wrath of heaven for purpoting such ludicrousies on our catechin caching cravings!

Thankfully greentea2 has resurrected the valuable health knowledge that was lost to the abyss, we can all be thankful that our caffeine-induced heartburn will be quenched and that our flouridated kidneys will be dialyzed by the celestial seasonings inherit in these our godly greens!

Sounds like BS. I quote the most obvious lie - “Matcha has 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea.”. So by grounding the green tea down you increase its antioxidant content 137 times??? How???

It could be because it's ground into smaller particles, which helps dissolves more matter. The amount of antioxidants in the leaves doesn't change, but there will be more in your cup.

I googled a bit - https://yunomi.life/blogs/japanese-tea- ... -green-tea - so yeah, it is definitely not true.

TLDR: matcha have the least amount of catechins (antioxidants) from japanese green teas based on studies (except roasted teas).

For me the main reason to drink tea is the taste and experience. Any health benefit is a plus. I would not buy tea based on numbers.
