Bulk Green Tea Benefits
Benefits of Green tea, camilla sinesis, has long been known for its beneficial health effects.
In the 16th century European explorers reported that the hot medicinal drink was used to relieve fever, headache, stomach ache and joint pain. Since that time the amazing benefits of green tea has been expanded. Current research shows that green tea helps with cardiovascular health, blood sugar regulation, immune system, antioxidant properties, enhances metabolism, and may control bad breath. I would say that is pretty impressive for a small little green leaf.
How does Bulk Herbal Green Tea have the ability to do all this?
Polyphenols makes this possible. It is all due to the high levels of polyphenols found in both green and white teas. Polyphenols are one of natures most powerful antioxidants. Polyphenols are a class of phytochemicals found in high concentrations in green tea, and have been associated with benefiting the cardiovascular system, as well as the circulatory system. Have you have ever noticed the slight astringent, bitter taste of green tea? This aspect is attributed to polyphenols.
Catechins- Catechins are a category of polyphenols. In green tea, catechins are present in significant quantities, more specifically; epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG makes up about 10-50% of the total catechin content and appears to be the most powerful of the catechins – with antioxidant activity about 25-100 times more potent than vitamins C and E. A cup of green tea may provide 10-40mg of polyphenols and has antioxidant activity greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.
Tannins- A group of simple and complex phenol, polyphenol, and flavonoid compounds, bound with starches, and often so amorphous that they are classified as tannins simply because at some point in degradation they are astringent and contain variations on gallic acid. Produced by plants, tannins are generally protective substances found in the outer and inner tissues. All of the tannins are relatively resistant to digestion or fermentation, and either decrease the ability of animals to easily consume the living plant, or, as in deciduous trees, cause shed parts of the plant to decay so slowly that there is little likelihood of infection to the living tree from rotting dead material around its base. All tannins act as astringents, shrinking tissues and contracting structural proteins in the skin and mucosa.
Green teas contain 6 times the level of antioxidants than black teas.

Green Tea Camellia Leaves are spread out on floors or racks and allowed to wither for a few hours. The leaves are then heated to remove moisture and to stop the oxidation process. The next step is to dry until a small amount of moisture remains. Green teas have long been enjoyed for their health-giving qualities as well as their unique and often subtle flavor. amusingly the aroma and taste can be quite different from one another. The color of the liquor can range from a bright jade green to a pale yellow and is best when drink without any additions.
