Solutions to Extend Your Life Through Diet.

I read an article recently that was very informative on some of the food products we should include in your daily diets.  Green tea, red wine and dark chocolate — three colorful solutions that may help you live longer.

IS there any other food or drink that has as many health benefits as green tea? The Chinese have known about its medicinal benefits since ancient times and they use it to treat everything from headaches to depression.

For example, in 1994, the Journal Of The National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly 60 per cent.

University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells.

There is also research to indicate that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

The great thing about green tea is that it tastes great and does not call for milk or sugar.

So in reality, it’s a zero-calorie drink! Harvard researchers speculate that the health benefits of green tea are largely due to its high content of flavonoids  (plant-derived compounds that are antioxidants).

Green tea is also the best food source of a group of compounds called catechins. In test tubes, catechins are more powerful than Vitamins C and E in halting oxidative damage to cells and appear to have other disease-fighting properties.

Studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal and bladder. Additional benefits for regular consumers of green and black teas include a reduced risk for heart disease.

The antioxidants in green, black and oolong teas can help block the oxidation of LDL (bad) cholesterol, increase HDL cholesterol and improve artery function. A Chinese study published recently in the Archives of Internal Medicine showed a 46-65 per cent reduction in hypertension risk in regular consumers of oolong or green tea, compared with non-tea drinkers.

I will discuss the next two foods in the following posts.  Thanks for your interest.

Comments are Appreciated

    Infrequent we can see normal theme for WP. There are very good themes, but sometimes complicated in settings. I installed last versions of MASUGID, Businezz, Jarrah, DesignPile, also I have tried also Heatmap – simple, but made for adsense. Not very often we can see something convenient but rich in options.
