It's summer time, and I don't know about you, but I still reach for my coffee. I do drink tea as well, and it's a better alternative to caffeinated bevarges or any sugary drinks. Take a look at the facts: drinks per caffeine content. Caffeine Per 6-oz. cup in Milligrams Espresso (2 oz) 60-90 mg Drip coffee 60-180 mg Black tea 25-110 mg Oolong tea 12-55 mg Green tea 8-16 mg Herbal tea 0 mg.
Let's talk more benefits of tea. Tea Boosts Insulin Activity Studies carried out at the USDA Beltsville Human Nutritional Research Centre in Maryland tested various tea extracts on fat cells taken from rats to see if they had a favorable effect on insulin. The fat cells were grown in a lab and fed tea extracts, insulin and radioactive sugar. The chemical epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) most enhanced insulin. When green tea is oxidized into oolong and black tea, EGCG forms polyphenols, which are strong antioxidants. Black, green and oolong teas improved insulin activity the most. Adding milk diminished the teas positive effect on the insulin. The increase that occurs could shed some light on why tea is said to help avoid heart disease and high blood pressure. Medindia.net says the study found that insulin activity increased more than 15 times. Details of the study are featured in the book "The Sugar Solution" by Sari Harrar, Julia Vantine, and Prevention magazine editors. Teazine Issue # 29th - October 2006
