At the 5th international Scientific Symposium on Tea and Human Health, leading nutrition scientists from all over the world came together and revealed more of tea’s preventative health benefits.
Tea and Body Weight
Obesity is the largest public health concern in North America and there are few strategies that provide long-term success. New research on tea catechins suggests that they may provide a benefit in maintaining body weight or promoting weight loss.
Tea and Bone and Muscle Strength
Researchers at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center conducted studies with 150 postmenopausal women with low bone mass. At the end of the six-months trial they found that 500mg green tea extract (equivalent to 4-6 cups of green tea daily) improved markers for bone formation, reduced markers of inflammation and increased muscle strength in the participants of the study.
Memory and Mental Sharpness
This study focused on black tea and showed that consuming black tea on a regular basis improves attention and self-reported alertness. The study, conducted by Unilever R&D, supports earlier studies on the mental benefits of tea.
Five thousand years ago in China, tea was revered for its medicinal properties and modern science is now backing up what the ancient healers knew all along – drinking a few cups of tea a day will keep the doctor away!
We do get many questions from women who want to treat menopausal discomfort in a natural way, with remedies that provide relief without unpleasant or even dangerous side effects.
Red Clover has been used in menpause formular for a long time and now research confirms this anecdotal evidence.Â Researchers in AustriaÂ surveyed 109 postmenopausal women about their complaints, and then gave them either a placebo or red clover (80mg/day). After 90 days, those taking the herb reported significantly fewer hot flashes and other discomforts.Â Then the groups were flipped and those who initially took the placebo were switched to the herb and vice versa.
Again after 90 days, the red clover group reported significantly fewer hot flashes. (findings are published Gyneocological Endocrinology).Â
In a second study of the same group of women, red clover was shown to reduce fatigue and improve mood, sleep, skin tone and libido.
Red clover is generally regarded as safe but it’s high content of phytoestrogen may cause a problem with a history of breast cancer in the family. Always check with your physician before starting any new herbal regimen or supplements.
