Why Do You Think Green Tea Tablets Are So Popular?

Why are green tea tablets so popular?  You see them in the drugstore.  They are advertised on TV and in magazines.  Supposedly, they are fat burners and promote “internal health”.  But, what are the facts?  That’s what you’ll learn here. 

Research databases contain over 3200 reports concerning the activity of catechins and other polyphenols in green tea leaves.  The research began as a result of early reports linking green tea drinking to a lower than expected incidence of heart disease among Japanese smokers.  The reports also showed a reduced incidence of stomach and throat cancer, but not lung cancer. 

So, if you’re a smoker, don’t think that green tea tablets can protect you.  We may not know how to prevent cancer, yet, but we do know that avoiding cigarette smoke is one of the best things that you can do for your health.  If you don’t develop cancer, you will almost certainly develop emphysema, a lung disease that will eventually smother you. 

We also know that antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatories have anti-cancer activity.  Catechins have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.  Two of the factors involved in developing cancer and in its progression are oxidation, which is caused by free radical damage, and chronic inflammation, which is caused by a variety of issues, including diet. 

Some of the mountainous research has concerned type II diabetes and being overweight or obese.  In laboratory animals and a few human trials, researchers have shown that catechins helped the body burn more fat during exercise and more calories throughout the day.  Controlling weight is important for people with type II diabetes.  Catechins have also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity, reduce blood sugar levels and reduce blood pressure.

So, taking green tea tablets may be a good idea.  But, is it the best idea?

The extract is an ingredient in what I consider the best health supplements.  But, it is only one of over 90 different vitamins, minerals, amino acids and herbal extracts.  There is good reason to believe that increasing your nutrient intake, without increasing your caloric intake can help you fend off disease and fight those problems that you may have.  There is also reason to believe that optimal nutritional intake can help people live longer.

When we look at people that are over 100 years old, still active and alert, we don’t see them taking green tea tablets, but we often see them drinking the beverage.  Japan has the highest percentage of people over the age of 100.  People in Japan drink green tea, but they also eat a variety of vegetables.  For meat, they usually choose fish.  Kelp is a favorite food.  All of these food selections are rich in antioxidants and other nutrients, but low in calories.

It may be difficult to always make the right food selections, but it is easy to take a multi-nutritional supplement on a daily basis.  They are worth far more than single ingredient green tea tablets.  Think of it as a little extra health insurance.
