Unlike regular Black tea, the White tea doesn’t have a significant colour, yet it is addressed as White tea. Currently, there is no general accepted definition of White Tea but its popularity doesn’t even need a definition. Barring the definition, White Tea is a minimally processed tea which has high health benefits.
Tea has been used as medicines for centuries. White Tea has rich antioxidants and therefore is a complete drink. The medical benefits of White Tea include reduced risk of cancer, cardiovascular disorder, and improvement in oral health. The anti-aging constituent helps in maintaining good health and healthy skin. Regular usage of it protects skin from the harmful effects of Ultraviolet light. White tea contains tannins, fluoride and flavonoids such as catechins and polyphenols. With its antibacterial properties, White Tea protects the body from various infection causing bacteria.
Cancer Prevention: White Tea contains antimutagenic properties which help in preventing new cell growth in lung cancer. Some researchers recommend White Tea as a possible anticancer agent. However, the packet of the tea isn’t available with an anticancer label. The future research definitely gives hopes of it.
Diabetes: Report suggests that regular intake of White Tea provides relief from excessive thirst (polydipsia), decrease plasma glucose and also increase the insulin level secretion for a diabetic patient.
Blood Pressure and Cholesterol: White Tea improves the artery system by reducing the thickness of the blood. In the process, it lowers the high blood pressure and also maintains the cholesterol.
White tea is part of every suggested diet plan. The reason is quite simple. It improves the digestive system of the human body. It prevents adipogenesis, the process of formation of fat cells resulting in the development of a fit body. Therefore, shedding few kilos is apparently easier if the diet plan includes White Tea, followed by a proper exercise regime.
White tea is better when bought and brewed in form of loose natural leaves. The unprocessed leaves guarantee the presence of the nutrients in their best proportion. This is better than tea bags that have undergone processing. The intake of 24 cups of White Tea is advisable and is purely healthy.
