Improving Overall Immunity with Green Tea

Beverages are a part of our daily routine whether they are or any benefit or not. There are people addicted to coffee in spite of knowing that too much of it can be harmful for them in the long run. Did you know that the Chinese have used their diet to prevent most diseases. There are so many diseases in the world that were unheard of in the past and are still non-existent in many parts of the world. These are lifestyle diseases and they can be prevented and even cured by making a few wise choices.

Green tea is one such beverage that is beneficial in multiple ways. It has been used in China for more than 4000 years as a medicine. It is a very powerful anti-oxidant, so it improves the overall immunity drastically. We see how plants are capable of surviving different weather conditions. They get this strength from phytonutrients, and we can get it from them too. The more plant based diet we take, the greater our immunity becomes.

Green tea is helpful for many medical conditions like joint pain, high cholesterol, infections and heart diseases but most of all, it has shown its effect on cancer. It can not only prevent cancer but also cure it. Cancer patients who could identify the condition in the first stage itself have reported having cured it through holistic methods. Researchers are in the process of understanding how it works, but it sure does.

It is simple to incorporate green tea in our daily lives. Even though it has numerous health benefits, it is just a beverage, very simple to prepare. Just replace one cup of coffee everyday with green tea and see the difference yourself. You will save yourself from the bad effects of coffee and also get the benefits of green tea by making a simple choice.

    The antioxidents found in green tea are of good quality and potency. These decrease the amount of free radicals in the body and hence wear-and-tear of body cells is reduced. That is also one of the benefits of drinking it :)

        Sometimes it is difficult to decide which category an article should be posted. Recipes are easy, but other articles can definitely be difficult.

    Excellent blog Akanksha... I especially loved this quote, "There are so many diseases in the world that were unheard of in the past and are still non-existent in many parts of the world. These are lifestyle diseases and they can be prevented and even cured by making a few wise choices." Life style is so important and turn our health around. Many still do not recognize the beauty and simplicity in holistic healing over western medicine... Western lifestlye, is so dangerous and ungodly. Thank God for His healing hand in nature and all His god-ordained foods. :) Voted and shared!

      Thanks for your lovely comment Diana..Lifestyle diseases are very common in India too and it is a pain to study how the ancient culture was killed. Do you know, the Library where all the Ayurvedic literature was kept was burnt by a moughal emperor..It was so big that it kept burning for 6 months. What we have left now is very little.

        Wow insane. I know many have tried to burn the bible too so that it's healing divine wisdom and power could be lost. God will reveal the healing wisdom.. keep seeking.. He has chosen you as a vessel; I can see it in your desire and writings; always stay open to that! :)

    Vote no 9, great info. I knew some of this already about green tea. My favourite is the one flavoured with jasmine. On the subject of Vegan Family, I have just added a post to that category, Odd One Out, which you might be interested in.
