Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea is a tea scented with aroma from jasmine blossoms. The base of jasmine tea is green tea, but black and white tea is often used too. The resulting flavor of jasmine tea is subtly sweet and highly fragrant. It is the most famous scented tea in China. The flowers used to flavor jasmine tea come from one of two jasmine species: Jasminum officinale or Jasminum sambac. Traditional jasmine green tea is harvested, made into green tea, stored until the jasmine flower harvest, and then scented during a multi-day process.

Nutritional Value of Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea is a flowery-tasting beverage which is completely free of calories, and is very beneficial for health. The tea contains about 5 to 10 percent of the caffeine in one cup of coffee. All green teas contain a compound called epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, that has been linked to cancer prevention. Jasmine green tea contains a specific type of antioxidants known as catechins which help neutralize free radicals in the body.

Health Benefits of Jasmine Tea

Aids in weight loss

Jasmine tea has been used over many years to help aid weight loss efforts. The antioxidant properties of jasmine tea help increase metabolism. This increase in the metabolic efficiency makes your exercise effective and helps your body to process the nutrients quicker.

Has antioxidant properties

The most praised aspect of jasmine tea is the high level of antioxidants within this delicate and delicious beverage. The most notable antioxidants found in jasmine tea are catechins. Green tea is the most commonly used base flavor for jasmine tea, but depending on which type of tea is used as a base, different antioxidant properties can be accessed. Antioxidants work within the body to detect and destroy harmful agents or free radicals that can cause disease and compromise the immune system.

Helps prevent cancer

Research has shown that regular consumption of jasmine tea can help prevent cancer. All the green teas made of jasmine have been widely shown to have cancer preventative properties, because they contain polyphenols, like epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Polyphenols like EGCG are key lines of defense against free radicals and other harmful or carcinogenic invaders in the body. Additionally, jasmine tea has also been shown to reduce risks of breast cancer, lung cancer, and many other diseases.

Helps control diabetes

In the fight against diabetes, jasmine tea has shown itself to be a valuable tool. The ability to metabolize glucose is the fundamental mechanism that causes diabetic conditions. Drinking jasmine/green tea can reverse the negative effects that diabetes has on certain serum proteins, working as a regulator for those with diabetes, and as a preventative measure for those not diagnosed but still consuming it as a regular part of their daily or weekly health regimen.

Helps relieve stress

The odor of jasmine can be very beneficial in relaxing the olfactory system, which in turn relaxes the entire body and helps relieves stress. Those who have a natural predilection for the smell of jasmine have a parasympathetic response to the odor, and their body releases chemicals that allow them to naturally relax or improve their mood.

Prevents gastrointestinal disorders

Adding jasmine tea to your normal diet can improve your chances of having a healthy stomach, as well as prevent gastrointestinal forms of cancer. Catechins present in jasmine tea have positive effects on multiple areas of health, including the gastrointestinal system. They activate a number of intracellular antioxidants and interact well with the gastrointestinal enzymes to promote healthy bowel function.

Boosts immune system

Many forms of cancer and carcinogenic diseases can have an immunosuppressive effect, meaning that the body’s overall immune system is compromised, making the body vulnerable to many other pathogens that complicate the treatment of cancer. Jasmine tea has been shown to protect the immune system of frequent users due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The immune system is the first line of defense against all types of illnesses, so bolstering it can benefit the body in countless ways.

Reduces pain from arthritis

Jasmine tea has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce chronic discomfort associated with joint pain and arthritis. The anti-inflammatory nature of certain organic elements in jasmine tea can reduce swelling and inflammation of joints by inhibiting unwanted cellular oxygenation.

Has antibacterial properties

Jasmine tea can provide a defense against bacterial infections, making jasmine tea an unexpected antibiotic that you can safely add to your diet. Studies have shown that the properties of jasmine oil can eliminate the effects of E. coli in certain test subjects, which can be a very dangerous bacterium commonly found in poorly preserved foods or unsanitary cooking conditions. It may also provide relief from cough, cold and throat infections.

Uses of Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea is not considered as an ordinary herbal tea, because its base as green tea, so it is like just any other tea, albeit with scented flavors. Jasmine tea has a huge number of health benefits and uses. Jasmine tea has antioxidant properties which help boost metabolism and aid in quick weight loss. Jasmine tea also contains catechins which help lower bad cholesterol levels, this improving cardiovascular functioning and keeping your heart healthy and strong. Jasmine tea contains polyphenols which have widely been shown to possess anti-cancer properties. The odor of jasmine tea has a very relaxing and sedating effect, which is why this tea is often used a natural relaxant and mood booster. Additionally, consuming jasmine tea on a daily basis can help prevent gastrointestinal disorders as well.

Side-Effects & Allergies of Jasmine Tea

Since green tea is the primary ingredient in jasmine tea, it has a list of side effects as well. Those with a jasmine allergy should refrain from jasmine tea, but generally, if you can safely drink green tea, you can safely drink jasmine tea. While not as caffeine-rich as black tea or coffee, jasmine tea contains caffeine, which could cause difficulty sleeping, especially when consumed in large amounts. Caffeine can also trigger irritability, dizziness, heart palpitations, headaches, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea and reduced appetite. If you have high blood pressure, kidney or liver problems, stomach ulcers or anxiety, the caffeine in jasmine tea is more likely to cause side effects. It also interacts with some medications, so see your doctor before drinking jasmine tea if you're on any prescription or over-the-counter drugs.

Cultivation of Jasmine Tea

The jasmine plant is believed to have been introduced into China from eastern South Asia via India during the Han Dynasty. It started becoming famous in China during the Ming dynasty in the 16th century. The rise in popularity of jasmine may have had something to do with the Ming obsession with anything floral. Not surprisingly, beautiful blossoms such as chrysanthemum, osmanthus, orchid and jasmine also made their way into food as well as tea during this period. The tea flavoring trend continued during the following Qing dynasty. It was during this dynasty that the jasmine tea began to be exported in large quantities to the west. The world soon fell in love with jasmine’s perfumed aroma and delicate flavor and has been craving the glorious blossom ever since. Today, the deciduous, vine-like plant is widely cultivated in many temperate areas of the world, including areas of France, Italy, Portugal, Florida and the West Indies. The flowering jasmine plant thrives in similar geographic conditions to China’s most famous teas—in high mountainous elevations ranging from subtropical to cool climates.

All about tea

When we speak of tea, it is commonly assumed to be black tea with milk and sugar. However, the word ?Tea? means any herb. This means even hot Tulsi water is Tulsi tea or hot mint water is Mint tea. Many herbs can be converted into tea such as jasmine tea, lemon tea, lemon grass tea, masala tea, sounf tea etc.

When the leaves are boiled in water and reduced to 50%, it is called Kadha (decoction). Black tea without milk and sugar is much healthier than black tea with milk and sugar.

Classical tea without sugar and milk has an astringent taste. But according to Ayurveda, this is good for health as it reduces Kapha imbalance. When sugar and milk are added, both of which have sweet taste, they neutralize the weight-reducing and kapha?relieving properties of the black tea. Therefore, milk or sugar should not be added to tea. For the purpose of taste, one can add Gur or jaggery or artificial plant sweetener Stevia.

Black tea is also a mild diuretic and increases urination as it contains caffeine, which is also a stimulant. This is the reason why tea is used when there is a need to stay awake. In this regard, coffee is stronger than tea. When taken in moderation, black tea is good for the heart and general health. If one has to choose tea then jasmine, lemon and lemongrass teas are better.

In Ayurveda, different teas have been prescribed for different personalities. Therefore, you can get vata?pacifying tea, pitta?pacifying tea and kapha?pacifying tea.

How To Maintain Your Weight Permanently?

Are you trying to lose weight?

Is losing weight difficult for you?

Does losing weight take a lot of time, money and energy?

Weight loss is the biggest epidemic in the world.

Unfortunately, traditional and most used methods of losing weight like dieting and exercise don’t work for almost everybody.

Even the weight that you lost by dieting and exercise is gained soon after you stop following the above-mentioned methods.

Why dieting and exercise don’t work?

By dieting you just reduce your intake and by exercising you just burn more calories. This is why when you stop following these two solutions, you automatically start gaining your weight back.

If food and exercise are only responsible for weight gain then:

  • Why there are people who don’t eat much but they are still fat and people who eat a lot but don’t get fat?
  • Why there are people who walk everyday and still they are fat, who have an active lifestyle but still they don’t lose weight and people, who have a sedentary lifestyle but they don’t get fat?

2-3 Medicines for every problem

Suppose a doctor gives the same medicines for every problem without even asking the symptoms and diagnosing. Would you consult such doctor? 

The same way weight gain has many causes which are needed to be identified 1st and the solution differs from person to person depending on the causes of the person's weight gain. 

  • About 80% overweight and obese people have found to be emotional eaters.
  • Food is the emotional pain killer.
  • Weight loss is more of a mental process. 
  • Exercise burns only 10% calories in your body while brain and stomach together burn 80% calories of your body.

So what is the solution?

  1. Habit formation for eating healthy food.
  2. Habit formation for avoiding fast/junk food.
  3. Habit formation for exercise and if exercise is not possible then training your mind so that whatever physical activity you do or you can do will become your exercise.
  4. Improving body metabolism so that it stores less fat and burns more fat.
  5. Stopping emotional eating so that you don’t eat more.
  6. Stress management.
  7. Improving lifestyle etc.

By this, you not only lose weight but also your quality of life increases, and your health improves. You also notice improvements in your career, work and relationships. And thus you lose weight permanently with this scientific method.
