Tea

Drinking tea regularly may lead to improvements in bone health similar to that observed with calcium or physical exercise.

Multiple studies support a wide range of health benefits from tea, including lower risk of certain cancers, weight loss, heart health, and protection against Alzheimer's and Parkinsons Disease.

  • Green tea is black tea that has been oxidized by fermentation. Drinking five cups of green tea a day may reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 48 per cent, reports a new study from Japan. Green tea contains between 30 and 40 per cent of water-extractable polyphenols
  • Black tea contains between 3 and 10 per cent.
  • Oolong tea is semi-fermented tea and is somewhere between green and black tea.

Drinking five or more cups a day reduces the risk of advanced prostate cancer by 48 per cent, compared to drinking less than one cup per day.

Tea and Parkinsons Disease

A large study in Singapore showed that people who drank the most black tea were 29 percent less likely to develop Parkinson’s disease. It was not the caffeine that held these health giving properties, but the effect that black tea has on estrogen levels. This may account for why less women get Parkinsons than men.Green tea showed no protective effects against PD.

Other reasons to drink tea, include:

  • A healthy heart - tea contains large amounts of protective polyphenols. But this benefit is lost is tea is taken with milk. The milk proteins [caseins] counteract the polyphenols.
  • Reduced odds of ovarian cancer in women by almost 50 percent.
  • Reduced stress in men, and better recovery from stressful events

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene; both red ones or orange ones. Lycopene is a carotenoid known for its anti-cancer benefits from its high anti-oxidant properties.

Red tomatoes - typically have more lycopene than orange ones

Orange tomatoes - their kind of lycopene is more bioavailable.

3 Ways to release more Lycopene from tomatoes:

  1. Slice, dice, or puree- processing tomatoes helps unleash the lycopene.
  2. Eat them with a bit of olive oil - Lycopene must latch on to fat to be absorbed by the intestinal wall.
  3. Cook them - heat converts the lycopene in red tomatoes into a form that’s easier for your body to absorb.

Other fruits and vegetables high in lycopene include: watermelon, pink grapefruit, pink guava, papaya, gac, and rosehip. Both tomatoes and watermelon help the skin to build up a natural UV – protection.
