Green tea for Health

Green tea can be an important aid to health, diseases and prevention. Green tea varieties and preparation of applications.

The medicinal plant Green Tea

The dried, steamed (not fried!) and unfermented leaves of the tea plant Camellia Sinensis have compared to all other teas (white tea, yellow tea, oolong tea, pu-erh tea and black tea), and in comparison to all infusions with herbs in our view by the largest general effect on health . So that mean is the Japanese green tea and its health main different varieties: Sencha, Gyokuro, Shincha, Karigane, Bancha, Benifuuki powder and matcha. We see this not only individually, but are convinced that they say in an overall approach, in the right combination , exert a much greater effect on health. Here is to choose the right combination for every problem. However, this applies only to the extent and with the appropriate preparation, and a sufficiently high quality is used. As far as variety, preparation and quality, we lead in the table below for each application on its own recommendations. Please read also the contribution to the proper preparation carefully as other important factors contribute to the effectiveness.

High tea quality is of fundamental importance

As far as the quality measure, and we evaluate this in kinesiology own tests (not scientific!) on a scale of 0-100%. Tees below 79%, we always recommend not for consumption. Qualities we share from 80% in 5% increments to bronze (80-84%), silver (85-89%), gold (90-94%) and platinum level (95-100%) in terms of their health effects related to a particular green tea places.

For everyday use, the general quality level should be at least 79% reach. A higher level would be highly desirable, however, since the effect to increase disproportionately to a degree of about 95%! To prevent and particularly for use in case of problems and diseases, we therefore recommend a quality grade between 85% to 95% . Some problems is an efficiency of > 90% is required. The following table shows the corresponding values ​​of each are shown.

Steeping time and temperature also crucial

The contributions steeping time and water temperature is explained in detail why these factors lead to an individual Wirkstoffmix. And this mix is primarily from a health perspective. The ingredients are as single substances not conducive, indeed sometimes even stressful (eg caffeine), but combined extremely helpful.

Dosage - when and how much to drink

In general, we recommend per serving 0.3-0.5 liters of water with 2 heaping teaspoons of tea to prepare. For the variety should Gyokuro 3 heaping teaspoons are taken. Youth should choose rather half tea and 0.3 liters of water per serving. When side effects is to reduce the amount until all negative symptoms have disappeared. Never force yourself to take the tea! You can then possibly taking the dose gradually later and later "creep".

Furthermore, you should strictly take care when taking green tea a sufficient amount of fresh water supply, since the green tea diuretic (diuretic) effect. As a rule of thumb, we recommend that you drink at least as much additional water as fresh green tea. Pay attention to your own body. If nevertheless a great thirst, or a perceived dryness, or other side effects exist, we recommend the green tea consumption to reduce the extent until no more negative signs are present. The body shows through the symptoms, whether and how much of green tea should be drunk and should. "More is better" is here, as in most of naturopathy, counterproductive. Then you can try over time to increase the dosage again and creep slowly. Alternatively, you can also try to replace the koffeinhaltigeren varieties Sencha and Gyokuro usually better tolerated by Bancha or Karigane (Karigane Sencha or Gyokuro Karigane) for a certain time and to check when they can sneak in again. What kind and how many servings are to be selected at the corresponding health topic is listed in the table below as a rough guide.

It is also clear that the green tea could not cure any of the diseases and problems with every person listed alone.
