What is the Best Tea to Help Those With Cancer
Most teas are made from the same plant, Camellia Sinensis. White tea is made from the same plant. It is picked when the plant is very young. White tea is withered and dried only as opposed to the oxidized black teas. The buds and leaves go through very little processing; therefore, white tea contains high levels of polyphenols, which are naturally occurring nutrients that include catechins, tannins, theaflavins and flavonoids.
This may be why scientists have found anti-cancer benefits in white tea; “White tea extract increased a specific type of cell death in laboratory cultures of two different types of non-small cell lung cancer cells, indicating that the tea may have an anti-cancer effect.”
Another study that revealed similar cancer prevention benefits suggests that three cups of white tea a day is the recommended level of consumption.
Once brewed, white tea is actually a light yellow color. Amazing Chai offers O’Cherry O’Rose Baby and Blushing Grapefruit among our delicate white teas. White is one of the best tea to drink, it’s subtle flavours – floral, sweet or spicy – in addition to the white tea benefits will easily make it one of your favourite tea.
Green tea has also been proven to have cancer prevention benefits. Since green tea is high in polyphenols and is an anti-inflammatory, this tea can help prevent and slow the growth of cancer cells.
