Peace and prosperity, I'm Randy Brickhouse-Bey. Welcome to the Healthy Gourmet Coffee Guide. If you enjoy drinking coffee, then let me show you how you can use coffee to improve your quality of life. "Enjoy the fruits of your labor".
The health benefits of Oolong tea are substantial. This tea is beneficial if you drink it straight or add enhancements like lemon, lime, ginseng, jasmine, or orange citrus.
Producing Oolong tea is done with extreme care. From the time it is harvested until the time it is packed it goes through a meticulous process done by hand. After the leaves are gathered they are laid out to dry for a short time. This is when the oxidation process begins. The leaves are placed in containers and shaken, so they can be bruised. This exposes the juice in the leaves to the air. The oxidation continues and the leaves are laid out to dry again. The tea leaves are roasted to prevent further oxidation. Now, the leaves will be cooled and roasted one last time to give the Oolong tea its' wonderful flavor while preserving the healthy properties of the tea leaves.
Health Benefits Of Oolong Tea
Oolong tea has a number of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals along with polyphenols. The polyphenols found in oolong tea can help neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are known to age our skin prematurely and cause dark spots on the skin. These harmful free radicals can hinder our immune systems from working properly. They are also associated with cancer cells and the weakening of muscle tissue.
Oolong tea is known to break down triglycerides; this is the fatty build up in the body. Clinical trials show that Oolong tea can raise the metabolic rate, and speeds up fat oxidation in the body. This simply means that oolong tea can help those of us who want to lose weight. Another one of the health benefits of Oolong tea is the reduction of high blood pressure. I use the tea to help me with my high blood pressure.
Chinese herbalists believe there are other health benefits of Oolong tea. The tea is said to help reduce tooth decay and aid the speed of oral healing because of the tannic acid in the tea. They also believe Oolong tea helps with kidney functions. The tea improves the utilization of glucose in our bodies, which aids in the control of insulin.
Studies have shown that drinking Oolong tea substantially lowers the onslaught of heart disease and prostate cancer. The research also shows that Oolong tea can act as an aid in breast cancer treatment.
Not only do the studies show that Oolong tea can be beneficial in helping to improve our health, it's actually a pleasure to drink. Some of us just aren't into swallowing a handful of vitamins or other supplements. I suggest you try some of the flavored varieties; I'm partial to jasmine and orange. Enjoy your tea.
