Wu Yi (Green Tea) – Scientific Studies

I just had to share this article with you. It’s important to know these studies have been done.

“A cup of green tea a day could help keep your heart healthy, a study shows. The drink was found to widen the artery, which runs from the shoulder to the elbow by 4 per cent within 30 minutes – reducing the risk of blood clots. This is a good indicator of improved blood flow around the body, says a report in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation.

Dr Nikolaos Alexopoulos and colleagues at the 1st Cardiology Department, Athens Medical School, used ultrasound scanning to measure the performance of the brachial artery – which runs from the shoulder to the elbow, and is a good indicator of blood flow around the body. A team of healthy volunteers were given green tea, caffeine or hot water to drink on three separate occasions. Measurements of the brachial artery were taken at three stages after they drank their beverage.

The researchers found the artery expanded by four per cent 30 minutes after volunteers drank green tea. Caffeine or hot water had no effect. Dilation of the artery shows better functioning of the endothelium, the layer of cells lining blood arteries that stops clots forming. Previous research suggests black tea improves short and long-term endothelial performance, but this is the first time green tea has been shown to have a short-term beneficial effect on the large arteries.

Green tea is traditionally consumed in China and Japan and differs from black tea in that it is not fermented before drying. This fermentation process appears to reduce the content of flavonoids – beneficial antioxidants – by up to 90 per cent, which is why green tea is believed to offer different health benefits to black tea.

Recent studies have also shown potent anticarcinogenic effects of green tea, attributed to its antioxidant properties. Other research shows drinking green tea lowers ‘bad’ cholesterol and blood pressure, and reduces harmful liver enzymes. Evidence is now suggesting that drinking around 3 to 4 cups of tea a day may help reduce the risk of developing heart disease.”

In conculsion, including green tea in your diet just makes sense. I have written about the “other health benefits” of Wu Yi Tea before, as you may be aware Wu Yi Tea has been shown to be more effective than other green teas.  Get more information on Wu Yi Tea


Green Tea, Dr Perricone & Oprah – The Transcript


I’m not going to add much, I’ll just let the doctor have his say in this partial transcript from an Oprah Show episode featuring Dr Nicholas Perricone, which aired in November, 2004

“Oprah: Now I’ve read in your book that you said if I just replaced coffee with green tea instead, that I could lose 10 pounds in six weeks.

Dr. Perricone: Absolutely.

Oprah: Now really. How could that — what is the big deal about this?

Dr Perricone: Coffee has organic acids that raise your blood sugar, raise insulin. Insulin puts a lock on body fat. When you switch over to green tea, you get your caffeine, you’re all set, but you will drop your insulin levels and body fat will fall very rapidly. So 10 pounds in six weeks, I will guarantee it.

Oprah: I’m gonna do that. OK. That is so good! Whoo! That is great.”

So, even if the doctor is only partly right, given that we’re all individuals who react differently, why wouldn’t you give green tea a try?

Wu-Yi Tea Weight Loss System – As Seen on CNN, NBC, Today Show & more


How your tea is produced is too important a matter for you to take for granted. It is the core of the whole question of what you get for your money. And there is a vital difference in the harvesting processes of different Wu-Yi tea.

What you really get for your money is determined by where a tea is grown and how it is harvested. Don’t forget that.

Our tea is sourced from Mt. Wu Yi Shan: the most fertile and mineral-rich land you’ll find anywhere in China. The experienced tea director visits the mountain on an annual basis in order to select the yield of the highest standard. The goodness of Wu-Yi is due largely to the rigorous quality test he conducts on them before harvesting.

And yet the reason why we are widely known as the supreme supplier of Wu-Yi tea is as a result of the purity gained throughout the production process.

Purity is not as conspicuous as some qualities in Wu-Yi tea, yet it is very expensive. That is why it is rare. Our Wu-Yi tea is produced, without regard to expense, according to four centuries of continual testing of this unique harvesting method…

Step 1
The production of delicious Wu-Yi tea is conducted by trained craftsmen who respect a time-honoured tradition which is always carefully followed. They are picked in units consisting of one bud and three leaves, generally early in the morning. Immediately upon plucking, the leaves are exposed to the sun to dry and age in direct mountain-side sun light for a determined period of time, depending on the season.

Step 2
Once the leaves are dry, they are gently shaken into bamboo baskets to lightly tenderize the outer edges (this is the secret to our distinct, robust flavor). Then the leaves are spread out on hand-woven Chinese drying mats, where they are left to cure for up to 72 hours.
Note: Some companies try to cut this timely method out of the production method by fire-drying their leaves. We take the exact opposite approach, because we know the extra time we take in producing our premium Wu-Yi tea is a small price to pay for our worldwide reputation as the purest supplier of Wu-Yi tea.

Step 3
Following this, the leaves are moved indoors to promote fermentation. The most critical part in the production process is when to stop fermentation. The tea director has over 37 years of experience, and knows exactly when to halt the fermenting process to ensure the most potent and palatable Wu-Yi tea available.

Step 4
The leaves are then hand-rubbed to break them at the molecular level. Not only does this generate a tasteful aroma and flavor, it helps to release the fat-burning catechins and enzymes so your body is able to absorb them more quickly and easily. (another critical step that is often neglected at many other tea plants, which significantly hinders the weight loss effects). Now, the tea particles are then sorted through and another quality check is performed by our tea director, where only a certain percentage of the harvest leaves are included in our premium weight loss formula.

That’s why our Wu-Yi Tea is known all over the world as the most supreme, potent and pure weight loss system available.
