The latest-greatest source for healing of any number of issues, from overweight to varicose veins, is green tea. But what is so special about this drink? Antioxidants. Green tea antioxidants are said to be 25 to 100 times more active than vitamin C and are more available than those found in fruits and vegetables. One cup of green tea has anywhere from 10 to 200 milligrams of polyphenols. Several cups of this pleasant drink a day will provide enough antioxidant power to knock out free radicals that are the trouble makers for our bodies.
Another type of bioflavonoid found in green tea is quercetin, which has been found to possess anti-viral, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Scientists credit bioflavonoids (green tea is rich in them) with many health benefits that include lowering cholesterol, fighting aging, enhancing the body’s ability to fight disease and strengthening blood vessels. Bioflavonoids inhibit the formation of cholesterol plaques and blood clots as well, something that can be part and parcel of varicose veins.
The antioxidants present in green tea are readily available and can be useful in reducing swelling, strengthening the walls of the blood vessels and healing varicose veins.
