Green Tea Could Help Prevent Arthritis

Tea, particularly Green Tea, helps prevent and even treat multiple health problems from Alzheimer’s to heart health. Now Green Tea could help prevent Arthritis. Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints. A joint is the area where two bones meet. There are over 100 different types of arthritis. The joint pain it causes can impact your life in the ability to do everyday activities. This news is great for those that might suffer this disease.

According to a new study, antioxidants found in green tea may reduce the severity and even prevent symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.  The antioxidants are called called polyphenols and they seem to possess more antioxidant potency than other vitamins. Researchers from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, compared the effects of polyphenols in mice. The animals received either plain water or water that contained an amount of green tea polyphenols equivalent to four cups of green tea a day. Researchers then induced rheumatoid arthritis symptoms in the mice.Eight of the 18 mice that received polyphenols developed arthritis compared with 17 of the 18 mice who did not receive the antioxidants. Several recent studies have shown that polyphenols reduce cellular damage, lowering the risks for serious illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.

Along with the study, researchers also point out there is anecdotal evidence suggesting that people living in India, China and Japan — where green tea consumption is high – have lower rates of rheumatoid arthritis.

With more research maybe eventually Arthritis could be prevented or even treated with the power of Green Tea. Even before then, it is another reason to keep drinking the green stuff, if only to protect your bones.

Green Tea and Broccoli Can Fight Prostate Cancer

As it turns out, one way to possibly fight Prostate cancer is to eat green literally – using Green Tea and broccolli. As research has found, green tea and broccoli can fight prostate cancer.

 

In the study, men who had been treated for the disease were given a capsule containing essence of pomegranate, green tea, turmeric and broccoli. At the end of the trial, levels of PSA – a protein that is an indicator of the cancer – were 63pc lower than in those who took a placebo. Previous research has suggested such foods have an anti-cancer effect, but the British study is the first to demonstrate such an impact on sufferers of prostate cancer.

Professor Robert Thomas, a consultant at Bedford Hospital and Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, England, said on the matter,

“We hope this will help millions of men combat the onset of prostate cancer.”

This is a great step forward in helping to stop prostate cancer and it is great that green tea is involved at all in the process. It might be one reason more to pick up that cup of green tea, and maybe some broccoli.
