    Reasons to drink green tea.

    Whenever I read a good artical on something, I always save the link to a word doc with a brief description above the link so I know where to find it if I need it.This makes it easier instead of sifting through hundreds of links in your bookmark.

    Anyway.....

    Well since my list on green tea is getting so huge that I have added to for over a year, I thought I would share it. I have dumped coffee and the diet soda I was chugging down a month ago for NOTHING but Green Tea, I must say I have never felt better in my life. Here is my list and yes some address hairloss so it is on-topic.

    Yes some are far fetched but even if half of it is true, well why not?

    Drinking regular cups of tea could help improve your memory, research suggests.
    A team from Newcastle University found green and black tea inhibited the activity of key enzymes in the brain associated with memory.
    The researchers hope their findings, published in Phytotherapy Research, may lead to the development of a new treatment for Alzheimer's Disease. .

    Of all the brands of green tea and the range of prices in the market, how can a consumer tell the best from all the rest? What should we look for when purchasing green tea?

    The polyphenols in green tea help protect the body from cancer by destroying free radicals, and protect your heart by lowering cholesterol and improving lipid metabolism. If you're a coffee drinker, you'll do your body good by switching to green tea.

    How is it made

    http://www.greentea.com/tw_greentea.html

    By inducing Rho signaling, the green tea extract made the cancer cells more mature and made them bind together more closely a process called cell adhesion. Both the maturity of the cells and the adhesion inhibited the mobility of the cancer cells, Rao said.

    Most of the side effects of green tea are the result of its caffeine content

    A team of researchers based in Tucson, Arizona, announced Monday that a study of the use of green tea extracts for polishing the magnetic heads in hard-disk drives has yielded a compound that works three to four times faster than conventional compounds

    A new study tested the effect of regularly taking green tea extract (GTE) and found that over 10 weeks, endurance exercise performance was boosted up to 24% with 0.5% GTE supplementation, and 8% with 0.2% by-weight addition to food.

    http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/ ... 012705.php

    Research aimed at finding the active compounds in green tea revealed that its protective effects are due chiefly to catechins. Powerful polyphenolic antioxidants, catechins are astringent, water-soluble compounds that can be easily oxidized. They are a subgroup of flavonoids, weak phytoestrogenic compounds widely available in vegetables, fruit, tea, coffee, chocolate and wine. The antioxidant potential of both green and black teas, as measured by the Phenol Antioxidant Index, was found to be significantly higher than that of grape juice and red wines.

    A study from the University of San Francisco found that the polyphenols in green tea can boost availability of the important brain substance dopamine in the areas where it's needed. Dopamine is a signaling substance in brain circuits that are crucial to creating positive mood states.

    Inhibitors of 5AR may be effective in the treatment of 5 alpha dihydrotestosterone-dependent abnormalities, such as benign prostate hyperplasia, prostate cancer, and certain skin diseases. The green tea catechins are potent inhibitors of type 1 but not type 2 5AR; they also inhibit accessory sex gland growth in the rat. These results suggest the certain tea gallates can regulate androgen action in target organs. (Liao S, Hipakka, RA. Selective inhibition of steroid 5a -reductase [5AR] by tea epicatechin-3-gallate and epigallocatechin-3-gallate. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications; 214(3), 833-838,1995).

    Yes, as I stated I have never felt so good. I have been chugging down 6 cups a day though. I was slamming coffee and soda all day at work, more out of boredom at some office job than anything else. Heck so maybe it's just from me not drinking that garbage than the tea but I doubt it.

    Your welcome, make sure you give it a go. It was hard dumping coffee and diet soda for a week or so but I am a changed man.

    By the way, if anyone has any positive or negative links about green tea to add please post it. I would love to read it.

    if you want a good source for green tea try http://www.adagio.com . They have great tasting teas. Here's a good starter set
    http://www.adagio.com/gifts/holiday_ing ... d5fbfcfb7d

    My favorite Green is their 1812 Gunpowder. Try it you won't be disappointed.
    Keep in mind that all the tea is loose so you'll need an infuser like the ingenuiTEA.
    When making green tea it's important for the water not to boil of it will make your tea taste bitter. 180 degrees is ideal. It should only steep for 3 minutes tops or again it will be bitter.
    180 degrees is just when the teapot starts making a simmer sound.
    Regimen:
    1mg Finasteride/day
    5% minox 2x/day
    Tricomin 1x/day
    Nizoral 2-3x/week
    Salon quality shampoos and conditioners

    Decaf green tea is also available for those, like me, who prefer to avoid caffeine. Also, if it's difficult to work 3-5 cups of green tea into your daily routine, there are a number of green tea supplements available, some with caffeine, some decaf.
