There are many teas that have been drunk throughout the ages. They are basically infusions of plants, usually the leaves and sometimes the flowers, by boiling them with water. Teas can be drunk hot or cold and are used for a variety of ailments. Teas of different sorts are drunk worldwide.The official tea that we drink is the second most popular beverage and grown in the mountainous regions of China, India, Sir Lanka, Vietnam, Nepal, Georgia, Japan, Kenya, Malawi and Taiwan. The tea we drink is taken from the top leaves and the buds of the Camellia Sinensis tree. These leaves are specially dried and then crushed for maximum flavor.Tea is a mild stimulant, with small amounts of caffeine. It has far less than its counterpart coffee. It also has small amounts of vitamin A, B2, C, D, K, and P. there are also trace amounts of some minerals. Overall it is good for your health. It is recommended that about 3 cups of tea and more should be drunk a day to get the healthful qualities of this beverage.There are 4 common forms of tea are:Black teaWhite teaOolong teaGreen teaBlack tea is the most common form of tea and is known as the famous English tea as this is drunk predominantly in Britain and the Western world. This tea is drunk hot but can also be used to brew the famous iced tea. It is made from the leaves of the tea plant and is completely fermented. This results in its darker color. It is more of a stimulant than the other teas and a more intense taste. Sometimes it is drunk with lemon but most commonly with milk.White tea comes from the bud of the tea plant. It undergoes little or no processing (fermenting or oxidizing) this brings out the antioxidants but will reduce the stimulant quality of this tea. Because the buds can only be harvested in the spring season this tea is not so common and fairly expensive.Oolong tea is fermented more than green tea but less than black. Research has shown that this tea helps the digestive system and is good for metabolism.Green tea is also not fermented like white tea but is made from more mature leaves so is much more common and affordable. This tea was predominantly drunk in the Orient namely Japan and China, but is gaining new ground in the West as research is showing the beneficial properties of this form of tea. Again it has more antitoxins (flavonoids) and is less of a stimulant. Added to this it has vitamin C and fluoride.Tea Houses are becoming very popular especially in fashionable areas of Europe like Paris. As more research comes to light we will hear more about the benefits of this popular drink. So the next time you relax with a good refreshing cup of tea you can rest assured that your favorite beverage is also good for your health.
Advancements in sun care protection are hot as researchers continue to seek more effective and longer-lasting sunscreens.Wearing sunscreen is an important part of keeping summer fun from coming back to haunt you later. Not only can sunscreen keep you from burning, it can help prevent skin cancer later in life. Most sunscreen agents lose their effectiveness and break down as they are exposed to the sun. The breakdown in sunscreen is unstoppable, because of the natural reaction between UV rays and sunscreens, but it can be minimized. To test UVB sunscreens' lasting ability, the FDA requires the use of solar simulators. However, these simulators have proven to be a weak method in analyzing a formula's ability to last in natural sunlight. Although difficult and time consuming, in-sun testing is the best proven method to test photostability-how a formula withstands sunlight. Currently, only one sun care researcher is known to perform both simulated and in-sun testing.By using both forms of testing, Florida-based Hawaiian Tropic has been able to produce formulas that offer broad-spectrum protection and don't break down in the sun as much as ordinary sunscreens. Its new patent-pending SunSure™ Technology uses a mixture of ingredients to maintain the protective powers of Parsol 1789-a UVA absorber-in all of its products SPF 15 to SPF 70. "A wise sunscreen choice is to opt for formulas that offer true UVA and UVB protection and won't degrade over hours in the sun with proper use. Look for products containing Parsol 1789 for broad-spectrum UVA protection," says dermatologist Jeanine Downie, M.D., Montclair, N.J.Experts also offer the following tips on keeping yourself safe with sunscreen:• Sun protection is important for adults and essential for children-these harmful effects of UV rays are cumulative. Make sun care part of your daily routine.• If your skin begins to turn red, get out of the sun.• Sunscreens aren't just for a day at the beach. Use sun protection for outdoor winter activities as well.• Try to schedule outings before or after the peak sun hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Please read on to discover how you can instantly boost your health and vitality as a result of the most astounding experiment in medical history.Dr. Alexis Carrell, a Nobel Prize winner, researched experimental surgery, did ground-breaking work with human blood vessels, and was a pioneer of organ transplants.Dr. Carrell took cells from the heart of a dead chicken. He put them in a solution of minerals and nutrients. He kept these cells alive for 28 years. They remained amazingly healthy. And they never aged, never got sick, and didn't die!In the conclusion of the experiment Dr.Carrell stated, "Renew this fluid at intervals, give the cells what they require for nutrition and, as far as we know, the pulsation of life may go on forever."All you need to do is two things, renew the fluid and give the cells what they need for nutrition.You see, as you age your cells aren't able to dispose of their wastes as well as when you were young. Natural acid salts build up in the walls of your cells, and they get stiffer and thicker.Because the cell walls get thicker they cannot let as much vital nutrients and oxygen into your cells.It's also essential to wash away the waste and toxins your cells produce. That's because the day Dr. Carrell stopped changing the solution and giving nutrients the cells died.You must flush away wastes before they eat into the cells of your veins, arteries, and heart weakening and aging you.The most dangerous wastes that are building up in your system now are acid wastes.

Make your diet almost 100% fruits and vegetables, which create alkaline in your body that neutralizes the acid wastes.There are good acids in your body, and bad acids. Stomach acid is a good acid, as long as there is not too much of it, and it stays where it belongs in your stomach.Another good acid is Folic Acid. It is a B vitamin and is used in your body to make new cells.# 2. Flood your body with Fulvic Acid. You may not have heard of it yet.

One of the biggest problems a newbie bodybuilder faces is determining how much to train. When they start a bodybuilding program, after having never exercised with weights before, the body generally responds relatively fast. The new bodybuilder can see gains in muscle size and a firming of the body within the first few weeks and this encourages them to train harder.This is where the problems start to begin. After the initial burst of muscle development, the body will begin to plateau for a while, and increasing the training will only lead to a case of over training. Over training occurs when the muscles haven't had sufficient time for recovery.When the muscles are subject to weight training, the main process of development occurs during the recovery period when the muscle cells are rebuilt, to cope with the increased demands of the weight lifting. It is during this 'rebuilding' process that the muscles become bigger, and without sufficient recovery the muscles won't have time to rebuild the cells.This leads to the muscle getting over worked and growth is stunted. Without the correct knowledge, the newbie bodybuilder thinks that they need to train even harder to maintain the gains that they were seeing in the initial stages of their "weight lifting" program. Thus begins the downward spiral of more and more over training, and the resultant lack of muscle growth and fatigue.With correct guidance the bodybuilder will be able to see when they are getting into a state of over training and allow themself a little more time to recover. This might involve having a few days rest from exercise, or more rest days between training sessions. Alternatively, the over trained bodybuilder might need to reduce the amount of weights lifted during a training session.Reducing the intensity of the training will help to eliminate the possibility of injury and other health related problems as the body's immune system is put under stress.People who are just beginning bodybuilding for the first time need to be made aware of this process before they start training so they can plan their weight lifting program in such a manner that they will continue to see gains in muscle size and fitness and reduce the possibility of the plateau periods where they appear to be making little or no progress.
