Long ago, green tea was used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to control bleeding and heal wounds, aid digestion, improve heart and mental health, and regulate body temperature. Listed below are the possible health benefits associated with green tea. It is important to note that more evidence is required before these possible health benefit links are proved definitive: An analysis of published studies in 2011 found that consuming green can lower cholesterol.
Drinking green tea on a regular basis is associated with a reduced risk of stroke, according to a study published in the journal Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association. A 2007 study concluded that green tea could hold promise as a new treatment for skin disorders such as psoriasis and dandruff.
Research published in the journal Psychopharmacology suggests that green tea can enhance our brain’s cognitive functions, particularly the working memory. Other studies have found that green tea might be helpful in preventing dental cavities, stress, chronic fatigue, treating skin conditions, and improving arthritis by reducing inflammation.
Further research is needed to firm up these theories.
