The benefits of tea

Tea Boosts Insulin Activity
Studies carried out at the USDA Beltsville Human Nutritional ResearchCentre in Maryland tested various tea extracts on fat cells taken from rats tosee if they had a favorable effect on insulin. The fat cells were grown in alab and fed tea extracts, insulin and radioactive sugar. The chemical epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) most enhanced insulin. When green tea isoxidized into oolong and black tea, EGCG forms polyphenols, which are strong antioxidants. Black, green and oolong teas improved insulin activitythe most. Adding milk diminished the teas positive effect on the insulin. Theincrease that occurs could shed some light on why tea is said to help avoid heart disease and high blood pressure. says the study found that insulin activity increased more than 15 times. Details of the study are featuredin the book “The Sugar Solution” by Sari Harrar, Julia Vantine, and Prevention magazine editors.

Why do people do this?

Why do people join social networks? Some say they want to become friends...but then, when they find out who you are, and what you do....
They (your so called friends) decide to block you. Now, I don't know all of you, but if you have a problem with, let's dialogue, and not be children! OKAY!

Blessings and have a great holiday season!
