Re: Garlic and Green Tea: Superfoods!

I'm eating some crushed garlic in tuna as I type this. I really dislike any kind of tea, too bitter for my liking. I do take capsules with green tea in them. Is this as effective as drinking it? What's the best way to consume each of these things?

Thanks for the info!

Re: Garlic and Green Tea: Superfoods!

Well you do not want to drink as much green tea as possible because of it's high caffeine content so unless you can find a decent tasting decaffeinated green tea you want to drink it in moderation if not for that simple fact then for the tannin content which can stain your teeth as w/ any tea. If you find Green Tea a bit too bitter then add honey and/or some lemon to it or try Jasmine tea which is green tea infused w/ jasmine essence. Getting the nutrients from the source opposed to a supplement is always more beneficial so if you can find a derivative of green tea (black tea is another) then drink it instead of supplementing it. There's always Blueberries however which are also extremely high in antioxidants and Cranberries are yet another super power food that everyone should consume.
Here's some info on that
Cranberries contain proanthocyanidins (PACs) that can prevent the adhesion of certain of bacteria, including E. coli, associated with urinary tract infections to the urinary tact wall. The anti-adhesion properties of cranberry may also inhibit the bacteria associated with gum disease and stomach ulcers. Recent scientific research shows that cranberries and cranberry products contain significant amounts of antioxidants and other phytonutrients that may help protect against heart disease, cancer and other diseases

Re: Garlic and Green Tea: Superfoods!

You need to buy a green tea extract that is caffeine free...normally a pill or a certain number of drops has the antioxidant quality of ten to fifteen time and don't have to spend the whole day drinking green tea in order to get its benefits. Unscented garlic pills are also available...Kyolic is a great brand- get all the benefits of organic garlic without smelling like it!! Good luck. Go to the health food store or look online for great bargains!!
