Jul 25, 2008
Green tea consists of high nutritional and medicinal values. Many research studies has resulted that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels as well as improving the ratio of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol and also decreased the growth of cancer levels.

Green tea consists of most powerful antioxidants and green tea is also not fermented. Green tea enhances the body's antioxidant enzymes including glutathione that is very helpful in treating arthritis. Green tea can reduce inflammation and cartilage breakdown which will be done only with the help of Glutathione. By taking green tea regularly can protect against many diseases that are caused by free radical damage and also to diabetes.

Green tea also has a significant effect to diabetes as they can low blood pressure and sugar level in body. Green tea are ease to find and inexpensive way to preventing us from diabetes. Green tea has assist to break down of blood glucose. Research suggested that green tea may in fact help to prevent the development of diabetes while also helping to regulate blood sugar levels in those who already have diabetes. Diabetics do not produce insulin which breaks down glucose in the blood, but the use of green tea may help in regulating these blood sugar levels and so be beneficial for diabetics.

Insulin, close relate to diabetes, is made in response to the level of glucose or sugar in the bloodstream. Insulin serves two purposes: it lowers blood sugar levels and increases the availability of sugar for normal cell functioning. Either the pancreas secretes little or no insulin in response to the rise in blood sugar after a meal or the pancreas secretes a normal amount of insulin but the cells do not respond to the hormone. In either case, the result is that blood sugar levels remain high; sugar spills into the urine, and many complications, such as diabetes, can develop in the body from the abnormal blood sugar levels.

Long-term damage can be severe, including such devastating effects as gangrene (especially the feet), ulcers, kidney failure, blindness and diabetes. Diabetes is also a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke because it makes the blood vessels less elastic and more likely to become clogged with plaque.

One study found that feeding green tea to rats reduced both blood glucose and insulin levels, and those catechins were very effective starches and sucrose blockers in the digestive tracts of rats.

Similar results were observed in humans. When 300 mg (about 3 cups) of green tea were given to subjects ten minutes before taking in 50 grams of starches, their glucose and insulin levels did not rise nearly as much as was expected. Besides, because of green tea's starch-blocking effect, it may also help get rid of excess fat, the villain that can cause diabetes or make it much worse.

Green tea is possibly the closest one can get to a miracle drink with its health benefits for a large range of variety diseases as well as for diabetes. Try some green tae for your health.
