Is Green Tea All Good? – Truths and Myths about Green Tea #SuperBloggerChallenge #Instacuppa

https://www.healthywomen.org

Green tea has been prevalent in our country since time immemorial. Even the ancient relics talk about the benefits of consuming green tea. Despite past roots, not many people incorporated green tea in their day-to-day lifestyle until very recently.

The recent trend of living an organic and healthy lifestyle has created awareness about the numerous health benefits of consuming green tea. In fact, consuming green tea can also be considered synonymous with cutting down fat. I remember being advised by numerous people to consider green tea for quickly getting rid of the extra fat that I had put on. Having a cup of green tea in the morning seemed like the new trend nowadays. Even the new brands that are entering the market with their signature green tea are marketing it in the same manner.

Thus, in my hastiness to shun off my calories, I readily began consuming it twice a day. I even started carrying a vacuum insulated thermos along; just for having green tea conveniently while traveling.

Despite the never-ending health benefits, there are several myths going around concerning green tea which has unnecessarily pushed green tea lovers in panic. Fortunately, having researched quite a bit about green tea, I have listed the common myths and truths about it.

I can happily have my cup of green tea now – keeping in mind both the benefits and the side effects.

The Myths

https://www.teatrivia.com

  1. Green Tea Alone Helps in Shedding Extra Calories

This is the most common myth. There’s no doubt that consuming green tea helps you lose weight, but you cannot think of defeating your calories without exercising and healthy dieting. Green tea is packed with several antioxidants and chemical compounds like Catechin that aid in weight loss by boosting up your metabolism. So, it’s one of those drinks that speed up the effectiveness of your work out. Having green tea twice a day will help you see rapid results. Also, try to consume it hot as it will speed up your metabolism by a multifold. You can carry a green tea detox bottle for the same.

  1. Green Tea is Likely to Increase Blood Pressure

Although studies have shown that some people experience increased heart rate and an abnormal rise in blood pressure after consuming green tea, this is true only for people allergic to caffeine. As no research has been able to prove that green tea increases blood pressure, it’s a common myth that scares many.

If your body can metabolize caffeine, you need not worry about it. Moreover, you can also relieve yourself of the apprehension of consuming too much caffeine as the rate of caffeine in green tea is low as compared to black tea and coffee.

In fact, it is beneficial for sustaining the health of your heart and helps to regulate the blood pressure. It prevents unnecessary clotting of blood and ensures proper functioning of heart vessels.

  1. Green Tea Leads to Cancer

This myth owes its existence to the misconception that like several teas in the market, green tea also promotes cancer cells. In fact, the chances of developing vulnerability to throat cancer (as some might believe) are much less if you consume green tea regularly in moderation.

Drinking it regularly actually prevents the production of cancer cells by averting the secretion of enzymes responsible for the occurrence of cancer. Besides, it detoxifies the body, which in turn assists in the prevention of several other serious ailments.

  1. Green Tea Affects Oral Health

On the contrary, consuming green tea regularly precludes the unhealthy conditions associated with teeth and mouth. The antioxidants present in green tea are vital for the prevention of serious gum problems like gingivitis and its antimicrobial properties are good for treating bad odor. Also, it helps in preventing tooth decay and the formation of plaque.

The Truths

  1. Overconsumption of Green Tea induces Side-Effects

As discussed earlier, it is indeed true that consuming green tea in excess leads to numerous imbalances in the body. It can cause insomnia, indigestion, anemia, hypertension and other such adverse health conditions. This is primarily because of the presence of Polyphenols and of course, the caffeine which should be taken in moderation. Thus, it is important to consume green tea in moderation.

  1. Green Tea Curbs Cholesterol

Catechins and Lipoprotein present in green tea significantly help in controlling cholesterol, thereby preventing cardiovascular diseases. There have been many studies that show how the consumption of green tea drastically reduces LDL cholesterol levels as lipoprotein keeps the arteries clean and prevents atherosclerosis.

  1. Green Tea Relieves Joint Pain

The ECGC (Epigallocatechin-3-gallate) in green tea reduces joint pain and ultimately prevents Rheumatoid Arthritis. It works with the immune system by controlling the secretion of molecules responsible for causing inflammation and damage in the joints.

  1. Green Tea is Beneficial for the Eyes

Here also, the role of ECGC comes into play along with other substances present in green tea like Vitamin C, Vitamin E, catechins and flavonoids. Together, they prevent the eyes from developing disorders like glaucoma, cataract, and macular degeneration. They also protect the eyes from damage imposed by harmful UV rays of the sun.

Thus, incorporating green tea in your diet can be beneficial for you. However, it should be consumed in moderation.

Now that you are deeply informed about green tea, I hope that you’ll be able to savor your cup without getting stuck in a dilemma.

Let’s accept it: Best baby wipes for sensitive skin. #NewLaunch #UnscentedWipes #MedicalGradeCloth

Mother Sparsh, the pioneer in baby wipes category, is the preferred choice of mothers across the country. The Mother Sparsh baby wipes have been massively successful in providing the ultimate care for your baby’s skin. The same brand that is so revered in the community is launching a new product – Mother Sparsh 99% unscented water wipes.

The premium unscented water wipes are specially made for the extra sensitive baby skin.

You don’t need to be worried about your new born baby’s hygiene anymore. Mother Sparsh 99% unscented water wipes are made up of 100% organic plant-based material. The newly launched unscented baby wipes are free of Alcohol/Parabens or any other kind of chemicals that are often found in other wipes.

Premium unscented baby wipes:

Mother Sparsh has fixated on the idea of developing a product that is completely safe for your baby. The premium 99% water wipes are free of any kind of scent or fragrance. This helps parents to ensure the purity of the product and solidifies their trust in Mother Sparsh to take care of their baby’s sensitive skin.

Super thick medical grade cloth:

The premium 99% unscented water wipes are made up of a plant based medical grade fabric. The fabric is derived from plant pulp in order to ensure its purity and dependency. Such a commitment to providing hypoallergenic, biodegradable, high quality water wipes has resulted in the success of Mother Sparsh as a brand.

Packaged with a moisture-lock lid:

Most of the baby wipes available in the market today are dry. These usually act as abrasives towards your baby’s sensitive skin and may even end up causing rashes.

The Mother Sparsh wipes on the other hand are 99% water. These sustain the softness of your baby’s skin. The plant based medical grade fabric and high moisture content provide a smooth and velvety feel to the wipe. Even the wipes that are often laden with moisture, end up losing the dampness once the packaging is opened.

Thus, in order to maintain the moisture content in the water wipes and ensure hygiene, the Mother Sparsh premium water wipes come with a never seen before, moisture-lock packaging. The ulterior packaging makes sure that the moisture is retained within the wipes.

3 times thicker:

The newly launched premium Mother Sparsh baby wipes are made to be 3 times thicker than the average baby wipe available in the market today. This is because of the medical grade fabric used in the formulation of these baby wipes.

The thicker wipes help mothers to easily clean their baby’s bottom without the hassle of going through multiple wipes.

Mother Sparsh did a lot of research and development before launching this product. They successfully identified the key issues being faced by the parents and came up with the Mother Sparsh unscented 99% water wipes.

The unscented, 3 times thicker water wipes made of medical grade fibre are the best possible solution to all your baby’s hygiene needs.

Not only are these the best for your baby, but are also best for the environment. As these wipes are made up of plant pulp, they are 100% biodegradable.

Thus, in my opinion, the new launch of the Mother Sparsh unscented 99% water wipes is a boon for parents throughout the country.

No such product existed in the market before. Mother Sparsh has revolutionised the baby wipe industry with its innovative thinking and eco-friendly products.

A pack of 72 unscented baby wipes is available at a price of 299 INR.

Got privacy issues? Go Pro with the Anonabox PRO

Privacy usually refers to freedom from unauthorized intrusion. Online privacy is, however, quite different from real life privacy. It is not quite the same as pulling curtains or shutting doors in your personal space. The parameters of real-life privacy do not apply to the online world because the concept of privacy is flawed in the digital space. Maintaining online privacy is primarily based on the simple objective of protecting your data from falling into wrong hands and to surf the web with no external interference whatsoever. Being inconspicuous and ensuring invisibility while surfing the web is something that one wishes to achieve but often fails at miserably. This is because the internet is a highly vulnerable place and each website that you visit tracks you with the help of “cookies”. Thus, protecting your digital footprint is highly necessary in this day and age.
