Tea health benefits: Green, Black, and White Tea
Tea is a name given to many brews but purists find only green tea, black tea, white tea, oolong tea, and pu-erh tea to be the real thing. These all come from the plant Camellia sinensis, a shrub native to China and India, and these contain special antioxidants called flavonoids. The most effective of these, known as ECGC, can protect against free radicals which can lead to cancer, heart disease, and blocked arteries.
Both of these teas do include caffeine and theanine, impacting the brain and apparently growing mental alertness.
The more the tea leaves are processed the less polyphenol content is generally. Polyphenols come with flavonoids. Oolong and black teas are oxidized or fermented, resulting in lower polyphenol concentrations than green tea; nevertheless, their antioxidant capacity remains strong.
Here’s what several studies have found about tea’s potential health benefits:
- Green tea: Made from steamed tea leaves, it has a high concentration of EGCG and has been widely studied. Antioxidants from green tea can interfere with the bladder Growth, breast, lung, stomach, pancreatic and colorectal cancers, reduce the risk of stroke and improve cholesterol levels.
- Black tea: Made from fermented tea leaves, black tea has the highest content of caffeine and forms the basis for flavoured teas such as chai and some instant teas. Studies have shown that black tea can help protect the lungs from harm caused by cigarette smoke exposure. This can also reduce stroke risk.
- White tea: Unpainted, unfermented. One research found that white tea has the most potent properties of anticancer relative to the more refined teas.
- Oolong tea: Those given oolong tea antioxidants have been shown to have lower bad cholesterol levels in an animal study. Wuyi, a variation of oolong, is widely promoted as a solution to weight loss, but the arguments have not been backed by research.
- Pu-erh tea: Made of leaves which are fermented and aged. Considered a black tea, it squeezes the leaves into sandwiches. One animal research found that animals administered Pu-erh gained less weight and decreased LDL cholesterol.
