Green tea is known to reduce blood pressure and has been used as a medicine for at least 4,000 years in China. How does green tea affect high blood pressure? 19459004 19459004 19459004 19459004 19459004 19459004 The secret of frustration is the fact that green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols, especially epigallocatechin gallate, which is strong antioxidant. It is made of leaves from the Camellia Sinensis plant. The leaves evaporate, which prevents oxidation of the EGCG compound. In contrast, black and oolong teas from the same plant are made from fermented leaves, resulting in EGCG transforming into other compounds that are not as effective in preventing and combating various diseases.
How does lowering hypertension (BP)?
Allows the bending of the blood vessels. Tea is caffeine, but unlike coffee, it actually relaxes you and your blood vessels and reduces BP, of course, without side effects. Studies have shown that green tea catechins, in particular EGCG, inhibit ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) that kills small muscles surrounding the arteries
ACE inhibits one of the causes of hypertension So the arteries are smaller, which forces BP to grow. (Source: Actis-Goretta L, et al., Inhibition of angiotensin converting enzyme activity with flavanol-rich foods, J Agric Food Chem., 2006, 54: 229-34). If green tea can do this of course, why should an artificial ACE inhibitor such as ramipril be taken?
Salt is blocked
In the intestine, which reduces the BP values. Theanin, the protein from tea also reduced blood pressure in genetically hypertensive rats, but not in normal patients. (Source: Kreydiyyeh SI et al., Tea Extract inhibits glucose and sodium intestinal absorption in rats, Comp Biochem Physiol Pharm Tox Endocrine July 1994, 108: 359-365). This is good news for people who are genetically prone to high blood pressure
The risk of lower blood pressure for middle-aged people
It showed that middle-aged people who 600 ml of green tea are consumed, 65% lower the risk of hypertension. Those who have been drinking 110 ml to 600 ml for more than a year have a 46% lower risk of high blood pressure.
Those who did not drink or who drank less than 110 ml daily
This protection showed no evidence of high blood pressure when drinking tea with a drink, only one year of daily use after. Short-term human experiments were not convincing. On the basis of the evidence, green tea effectively reduces high blood pressure by drinking four or five glasses of green tea a day. "It's better to deprive food for three days than a cup of tea" (ancient Chinese proverb). Green tea is part of the daily diet, which naturally reduces your high blood pressure.
