We’ve received many comments about health benefits from certain foods and Green Tea is probably one of the most popular questions we get.

So, in this week’s video, it’s all gonna be about what is green tea, possible health benefits, what conditions it may help with, any situations where you should speak to a healthcare professional, and tips on how to brew the perfect green tea. Feel free to skip to certain sections that will be time stamped.

Now as a healthcare professional, I've seen some mad claims about Green Tea. So today, my aim is to make sure all the information in this video is accurate and factual for you guys.

Green tea has been used in traditional Indian and Chinese medicines for centuries? It has been historically used to control bleeding, heal wounds, aid digestion, and regulate body temperature. But remember, even though it has been used throughout history, there isn't much evidence to support these uses.

Despite being one of the most widely consumed drinks in the world, green tea is often seen by the media as a so-called superfood, attributed with various health benefits. This reputation rests on the fact that green tea is a rich source of nutrients, which provide much of the colour and aroma of tea.

Green tea is made from the Camellia sinensis plant. The dried leaves and leaf buds are used to produce various types of teas. Green tea is prepared by steaming and pan-frying these leaves and then drying them.


Green tea has about 50 milligrams of caffeine, which is roughly the same as half a cup of coffee.

To put that into perspective, there is research out there that recommends up to 400milligrams of caffeine a day to be safe for most healthy adults. That's roughly the amount of caffeine in four cups of brewed coffee, 10 cans of coke or two "energy shot" drinks.

There are more strict limitations for pregnancy where the limit is 200mg of caffeine daily, you can find a really helpful caffeine calculator at the following link:

The benefits that are key with green tea is that it doesn’t contain as much caffeine as coffee, but enough to produce a response without causing the jittery effects associated with taking in too much caffeine.


Another common comment about Green tea, is that it can help you burn fat. In some studies, green tea has been shown to increase fat burning and boost metabolic rate. However, in other studies, it has been shown that this doesn’t happen, so not all studies agree.

There may be some evidence of increased metabolism and fat burning shown in some lab models where there was a decrease in new blood vessel formation within fat storage. This means that it literally takes away the vital nutrition for your fat, and makes it die. But remember, this evidence isn’t strong enough to support the use of green tea solely for losing weight.

The recommended ways to lose weight are through a healthy diet and regular exercise. If you are looking at ways of losing weight, check out my previous videos on how lose weight the healthy way,
