Green Tea Helps Fight Chronic Inflammation
Arthritis is a “catch-all” term that describes swelling, stiffness, and pain in the joints, most commonly in the hips, knees, and hands. According to the CDC there are more than 100 arthritis conditions and, while arthritis can affect anyone at any age, it is most prevalent in adults 60+ years old. Arthritis affects more than 58 million Americans who seek arthritis pain relief.
The five most common types of arthritis are:
2. Rheumatoid Arthritis
3. Psoriatic Arthritis
4. Gouty Arthritis
Although the various types of arthritis have different underlying causes, a common denominator is often being overweight and, while there is no cure for arthritis, there are various therapies and medications that can help relieve the symptoms. Clearly, one of the main things that can be done to help alleviate the swelling, stiffness, and pain of arthritis is to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight.
Green tea has demonstrated benefits against multiple diseases including cancer, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative diseases. Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which is a major component of green tea, has been shown to help reduce inflammation which, in turn, can help alleviate arthritic swelling and pain. Green tea is one of the best natural remedies to help with weight control and to help reduce inflammation. According to Dr. Liz Jane, "Green tea is rich in antioxidants, which can help fight inflammation and protect your cells from damage." The benefits of green tea, however, go far beyond helping control weight and reducing inflammation, the anti-inflammatory properties of the EGCGs found in green tea also help protect the heart from damage caused by inflammation, lower blood sugar, and reduce blood pressure.
Consuming green tea as a regular part of your daily routine, therefore, can certainly help with maintaining a healthy weight and help with arthritis pain relief. I. E. Green Tea has more antioxidants per serving than any other tea on the market and, possibly, more antioxidants per serving than any other beverage on the market. In fact, it would require roughly 14 cups of regular green tea to come close to the 300 mg of antioxidants packed into each I. E. Green Tea packet.
I.E. Green Tea is super Convenient and loaded with Antioxidants
I.E. Green Tea has zero calories and no sugar so it is a refreshing tea to assist with weight control and it is a wonderful green tea that helps reduce inflammation. Our green tea is pre-brewed and comes in convenient tea packets that you can take with you virtually anywhere – just add to water. We offer unsweetened, pure green tea or, if you want a slightly sweet, fruit flavored drink, we offer peach green tea, lemon green tea, and raspberry green tea. All of our fruit flavored green teas are sweetened with a stevia that is specifically formulated for I.E. Green Tea and all are completely sugar-free and calorie-free. Furthermore, not only does I.E. Green Tea help with weight control, I. E. green tea is also packed with the anti-inflammatory EGCGs to help reduce inflammation and help diminish arthritic pain.
Adding I.E. Green Tea to water, though, is just the beginning. While it is true that I.E. Green Tea is great in hot water or cold water, try adding one of our slightly sweet, all-natural fruit flavored green teas (peach green tea, lemon green tea, or raspberry green tea) to sparkling water for a refreshing and healthy alternative to sugar laden colas and other sugary soda waters. I.E. Green Tea is all-natural fruit flavored tea and makes for a slightly sweet, delicious flavor enhancer to your oatmeal, yogurt, and similar foods. Just stir in and enjoy.
We believe that I.E. Green Tea is not only the best green tea on the market but also the best green tea to help reduce inflammation and provide some arthritis pain relief.
