Tea Store Here


Bible Map
Today, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing hard evidence for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in 1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

Green Tea has long been valued in China for its miraculous medicinal properties for the maintenance of good health. It has been said in China "it is better to drink Green Tea than take medicine".

Green Tea has been receiving much attention lately. As a result, we now have many medical reports and studies by accredited institutions concluding that Green Tea does contain many healthful and healing properties. Drinking Green Tea has been shown to provide the human body with numerous health enhancing components. Green Tea contains a very high value of Catechin polyphenols that have antioxidant properties that are known to fight against cancer. In addition, Green Tea provides Polysaccharides, Flavonoids, Vitamin B complex, Vitamin C (there's more vitamin "C" in one cup of green tea than in an orange), Vitamin E, R-Amino Butyric Acid and Fluoride in it's natural state.

Did you know that drinking tea can help you lose weight? It’s true. Some teas can even help burn fat and calories. A recent scientific study supports green tea’s ability to burn fat and increase metabolism. What’s more, other studies show that, when combined with other sensible lifestyle choices like maintaining a healthy body weight, both green and black teas can help reduce the risk of heart disease, the #1 health risk for women. There are many flavored and herbla varieties of green tea available which make watching your weight a pure pleasure. Or kick the caffeine with a decaffeinated green tea. Delightful hot or iced, green tea is a delicious way to help lose weight!

Green tea boost your energy level and ability to burn calories with the delicious ruby red grapefruit flavor of our Metabo Partner™ Wellness Tea—green tea with extra burning power from cola nut and Super CitriMax™ (a natural source of hydroxycitric acid from the tropical fruit tamarind)*. Or satisfy your appetite with the sumptuous strawberry citrus flavor of Diet Partner™ Wellness Tea. This naturally caffeine free combination of key herbs and other ingredients can help your body burn calories more efficiently*.

A study from Obesity Research indicates that people who have been regular tea drinkers for more than 10 years showed lower body fat percentages compared with those who don't drink tea regularly. Drinking tea is a great life choice—it’s naturally calorie-free (without the addition of milk or sugar) and can help quench your body’s thirst for the daily fluids it needs. And some teas, including green tea and certain herb teas, can help you lose weight and keep the weight off. Support a healthy diet and exercise program with tea. Whether you’re counting carbs, calories or miles on the treadmill, you can reward yourself with a cup of tea—hot or iced, it’s a delicious and totally guilt-free indulgence!

Green tea has higher values of medicinal properties than other teas, because of the special way in which it is dried. This traditional drying technique prevents the tea from the negative effects of fermentation. The now widely recognized health benefits of Green Tea have been mentioned in many newspapers and journals including CNN, USA Today, New York Times, Chinese Daily News, Journal of National Cancer Institute, numerous US Universities and Research Centers. Some of the findings that have been established are:

GREEN TEA can help reduce the risks of esophageal, (the tube through which food passes from the pharynx to the stomach) skin and many other forms of Cancer, mainly by its highly significant antioxidant properties. (National Cancer Institute 1-800-4-Cancer).

GREEN TEA can help to lower cholesterol and cuts the risk of stroke in men. (American Medical Association).

GREEN TEA can help suppress and reverse aging, and refreshes the body with it's high Vitamin B content that helps the human body better deal with stress, and release more energy.

GREEN TEA can help restrain the growth of various bacteria that cause disease.

GREEN TEA can help stop cavities because of it's rich Fluoride content present in it's natural form, and can help prevent bad breath. (Dr. Tao Song findings).

Green Tea helps constipation. (Dr. Tao Song findings).

To sum up, here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:
cancer
rheumatoid arthritis
high cholesterol levels
Cariovascular disease
Infection Obesity
Impaired immune function

Tea delivers a multitude of health benefits that range from: being cardio-protective, a good source of fluid and being friendly to your teeth.

When on a weight loss program eating a balanced diet that contains five portions of fruit and vegetables, plenty of complex carbohydrates and restricted amounts of saturated fat. However, when it comes to what we drink, even health experts can get a little confused. Here are some brief facts to help make it clear that tea can help:

Tea is rapidly becoming the choice of fluid intake today

Tea can even help burn fat and calories. A recent scientific study supports green tea’s ability to burn fat. A study from Obesity Research indicates that people who have been regular tea drinkers for more than 10 years showed lower body fat percentages compared with those who don't drink tea regularly.

Tea without milk has no calories. Using semi-skimmed milk adds around 13 calories per cup, but you also benefit from valuable minerals and calcium

Tea with milk provides 16% of daily calcium requirement in 4 cups

Tea contains some zinc and folic acid

Tea with milk contains Vitamin B6, Riboflavin B2 and Thiamin B1

Tea is a source of the minerals manganese, essential for bone growth and body development, and potassium, vital for maintaining body fluid levels

The average cup of tea contains less than half the level of caffeine than coffee. One cup contains only 50mg per cup

Tea is a natural source of fluoride and delivers 45% of your daily requirement if you drink 3/4 cups per day

Fluoride helps prevent dental decay

Green and black teas are from the same plant, Camelia sinensis, and contain similar amounts of antioxidants and caffeine (see our caffeine section)

Tea has antioxidants. Antioxidants fight your body's free radicals, the chemicals that are now believed to be linked to destroying cell DNA that leads to many types of cancer. Antioxidants help block cancer by preventing damage to cell DNA.

Green Tea also helps support a healthy cardiovascular system.

Yerba Mate' is a green tea from South America. It is made from a South American herb that has won many admirers in wide-ranging parts of the world. In the search for a natural stimulant devoid of side effects and toxicity, Yerba Mate currently holds the most hope. An invigorator of the mind and body, a natural source of nutrition, and a health promoter par excellence, Yerba Mate deserves the attention of every person interested in optimum health. Yerba mate tea contains practically all of the vitamins to sustain life-powerful antioxidant, tone the nervous system, retard aging, combat fatigue, stimulate the mind, control the appetite, reduce stress, caffeine free! Yerba Mate contains Vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B complex, riboflavin, vitamin C complex, magnesium, calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, manganese, silicon. Specially large amounts of pantothenic acid, a significant and vital nutrient.

Description of Yerba Mate' and constituents:

Yerba Mate' (Ilex paraquariensis) is an evergreen member of the holly family. We call Yerba Mate by several common names, including Paraguay tea, Jesuit tea, missionary tea and South American holly, but the most common is Yerba or Yerba Mate. It grows wild in Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Brazil, but is most abundant in Paraguay where it is also cultivated. New methods have been implemented and we find it also as an Organic Certified Yerba Mate Green Herbal Tea. We use the leaves nutritionally and medicinally. It is usually ground and steeped in hot water for several minutes and served hot or cold. The plant is classified according to Western herbal medicine as aromatic, stimulant, bitter, astringent, diuretic, purgative, sudorific, febrifuge, alterative and stimulant, but these terms sometimes do not reflect the true richness of its properties.

YERBA MATE IS ONE OF THE FEW PLANTS IN THE WORLD WITH SUCH NUTRITIONAL VALUES !!!

NUTRITION FACTS

Vitamins and Minerals:
100 grams (about 4 ozs.) of Yerba Maté brewed with one liter of water have approximately the following:

Potassium: 681.85 mg
Magnesium: 167.60 mg
Iron: 0.33 mg
Sodium: 4.57 mg
Phosphorus: 93.00 mg
Vitamin C: 2.55 mg
Niacin: 12.98 mg

Two 50-gram portions of Yerba Maté cover a great part of the minimum daily requirements recommended:

55.9% of Magnesium
34.1% of Potassium
99.9% of Niacin
11.6% of Phosphorus

Several attempts to characterize part or all of the constituents of yerba mate' have been made during the last few decades. They agree on some points, and disagree on others. This is not unusual; different assay techniques will be sensitive to different nutrients. The one thing that unites the various researchs is the consistent detection of numerous vitamins and minerals. There is the us ual array of resins, fiber, volatile oil, and tannins that characterize many plant substances. But then there is the growing list of vitamins and minerals, including carotene, vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B complex, riboflavin, nicotinic acid, pantothenic ac id , biotin, vitamin C complex, magnesium, calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, manganese, silicon, phosphates, sulfur, hydrochloric acid, chlorophyll, choline, inositol. Different research find different nutrients; there no single research that has found all o f them, and perhaps there are still other nutrients that have not been identified and classified.

One group of investigators from the Pasteur Institute and the Paris Scientific Society concluded that yerba mate' contains practically all of the vitamins necessary to sustain life. They focused especially on pantothenic acid, remarking that it is rare to find a plant with so much of this significant and vital nutrient. It is indeed difficult to find a plant in any area of the world equal to mate' in nutritional value.

In addition, yerba mate' contains a substance belonging to a very specialized class of chemical compounds. Though only small amounts of this substance occur in mate', its presence has generated a huge amount of attention. The substance is a xanthine alkaloid called mateine. Because of all the attention heaped upon its presence in yerbamate', the following fairly extensive treatment is given, even though in reality the substance probably contributes little if anything to the activity of the plant.

Caffeine and Health

American Heart Association Recommendation

Caffeine has many metabolic effects. For example:

1. It stimulates the central nervous system.
2. It releases free fatty acids from adipose (fatty) tissue.
3. It affects the kidneys, increasing urination, which can lead to dehydration.

Caffeine is in coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate and some nuts. Whether high caffeine intake increases the risk of coronary heart disease is still under study.

Many studies have been done to see if there's a direct link between caffeine, coffee drinking and coronary heart disease. The results are conflicting. This may be due to the way the studies were done and confounding dietary factors. However, moderate coffee drinking (1-2 cups per day) doesn't seem to be harmful.

Caffeine-habituated individuals can experience "caffeine withdrawal" 12 to 24 hours after the last dose of caffeine. It resolves within 24-48 hours. The most prominent symptom is headache. They can also feel anxiety, fatigue, drowsiness and depression.

According to the Mayo Clinic, when caffeine is added to foods or beverages in the United States, it must appear in the ingredients list on the label. But manufacturers aren't required to list the amount of caffeine.

Caffeine is a stimulant. It can increase alertness and heart rate. Caffeine can also cause restlessness and difficulty in sleeping. The effects of caffeine begin about 15 minutes after you consume it and last up to several hours. People differ in their sensitivity to caffeine. If it causes problems, consider limiting how much caffeine you consume.

Coffee is the major source of caffeine for most adults. The average American consumes about 230 milligrams (mg) of caffeine a day — about the same amount as in two 12-ounce cups of brewed coffee. For children, the major source of caffeine is carbonated beverages and tea. The average American child consumes about 21 mg of caffeine a day. But this may change as the number and popularity of highly caffeinated, or "supercaffeinated," beverages increases.

A few studies indicate that large amounts of caffeine may slightly enhance weight loss in people who exercise and maintain a low-fat diet. This may seem encouraging. But read on.

Caffeine is a stimulant that can make your heart beat faster, increase your blood pressure, interrupt sleep and cause nervousness and irritability.

Studies have used amounts of caffeine equal to six cups of strong coffee a day. But even this amount doesn't seem to greatly increase the body's ability to burn calories (metabolic rate). It also doesn't result in significant loss of body fat.

Caffeine can suppress appetite. Some people assume that if they use caffeine, they'll eat fewer calories. But the appetite-suppressant effect of caffeine doesn't last long enough to lead to significant weight loss.

Caffeine is a diuretic, which acts to help your body lose water by increasing the amount of urine. This water loss may decrease body weight, but the weight you lose isn't body fat.

At first glance, it may seem that caffeine is a weight-loss aid. But it's not. No studies indicate that weight loss from large amounts of caffeine is significant or permanent. Also, many caffeinated beverages contain sugar, which adds calories and contributes to weight gain.

Healthier replacements for coffee are green tea, herbal blends, Chai (especially decaf versions), Yerba Mate', Rooibos, or white and silver needle tea!

You also may substantially reduce the caffeine content in regular tea by steeping it for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, then dispose of the tea or serve it to someone in need of caffeine. Then, using the same tea leaves, make another cup of tea which will contain much less caffeine since most of it was dissolved in the first cup of tea. Most of the caffeine dissolves in the first 30 to 60 seconds. It accually takes at least several minutes of steeping to start extracting the beneficial substance from tea, such as polyphenols.

Yerba Mate' is loaded with nutrients, other beneficial substances and has no caffeine. It is availbale unfermented which is a green tea and taste like green tea.

Chai tea is another excellent way to reduce caffeine intake. It has more herbs than tea in it and it is wonderful for the digestive track and stomach. You may further reduce the caffeine by using a decaffeinated Chai tea.

Another tea that I personally enjoy tremendously is White or Silver Needle tea. I don't like green tea because of its bitterness. White Tea is the rarest and most delicate of tea. For this reason it is pleasant even without sugar. It is plucked forty-eight hours or less between the time the first buds become fully mature and the time they open. It has less caffeine than green tea too. For these reasons it is more enjoyable to the palate and healthier than raw varieties of green tea.

In the evening try Green Rooibos tea (unfermented Rooibos) because it has no caffeine and has many nutrients and antioxidants. It is quite relaxing and is even safe to give to an infant for colic.

Other herbal concoctions can be antything from pure Chamomile flowers or herbal blends with or without caffeinated tea in them. The ranges of possiblities are boundless when one considers the many tea varieties as well as numerous herbs available.
