It is our firm belief that green tea has many healing compounds but is not a cure for any illness. Tea drinking is a lifestyle choice that will add to your general health and wellbeing.
After reading much research and many studies on the health and wellbeing effects of green tea drinking, it appears there are an astonishing number of positive health claims; but none can attribute the benefit(s) to tea drinking alone.
So green tea drinking should not be considered a cure-all but a lifestyle choice for many who believe it has a positive effect on health and wellbeing.
We see the role of green tea drinking as part of the array of lifestyle choices to preserve, maintain and enjoy good health; including good rest, good exercise and good diet.
Since the Tang Dynasty in China and through the ages, daily tea drinking has been the choice of billions of people who understand the benefits, without scientific proof; 2.5 billions cups of tea consumed at breakfast every day; 4.5 billions cups of tea consumed every day.
There is a mountain of scientific reseach that shows how the combined biological action of amino acids, antioxidants, flavinols, polyphenols, enzymes, minerals and catechins serve to repair and strengthen our health systems.
Tea research shows that the health benefits of green tea are also related to the careful processing and brewing techniques that best yield the biological effect of the healing compounds.
We cannot find any published claims that tea is a cure for any health condition.
While the research studies below have favourable findings they cannot exclude the effect of unknown factors upon the findings; for example, the influence of genetics, environment and stress upon the study groups.
There are many research references** which show that the biological actions of tea have a positive effect upon many poor health conditions, including but not limited to
**publications are available for each health claim
