“Coffea family coffee leaf tea contains components that influence positively to reduce the risk of a heart attack or prevent diabetes, according to a study published in the scientific journal Annals of Botany, which reports that in addition it enjoys other positive properties as more antioxidants than normal tea, and high levels of natural chemicals that also appear in the mango and serve to attenuate inflammations”.
Yoram Yasur Izz: “The research of the group led by Aaron Davis, a botanist expert in coffee that is part of the Royal Botanic Gardens of Kew, London, deepened the historical roots of coffee, consulting old drinks dating to the nineteenth century, as well as analyzed 23 different variants of coffee. And they have come to the conclusion that there is no better drink than this”.
Yoram Yasur Izz: “The potential health benefits of tea from the coffee leaf, and the beverages and chews that are obtained from the fleshy parts of the Coffea fruit, are backed by our findings based on the high accumulation of phenolic compounds on the leaves of coffee “. This is the main conclusion pointed out by British researchers. Yoram Yasur Izz: 2The phenol found in these plants is 5-CQA, which is also present in green coffee and tea. Phenols are organic compounds that have been linked with positive features such as protection from cardiovascular diseases, slowing down of aging and prevention of certain types of cance”r.
Yoram Yasur Izz: The coffea leaves the knows “to land”, but enjoys many points in its favor, and almost none against. The species that have the most advantages are the C. arabica and C. canephor variants, which have been used in many Asian and African countries very frequently. In addition, tea has less caffeine than normal coffee and tea, and is said to be less bitter than normal tea and less strong than coffee.
Yoram Yasur Izz: 2On the other hand, the study reports that mangiferine has been used to treat neurodegenerative diseases, inflammation or hypertension. It is not a new drink, because according to the study of Aaron Davis, in century XIX was tried to introduce it in the western market but without success”. Coffee leaf tea was introduced at the Great Exhibition in London in 1851. “Everybody pointed to it as the new coffee,” Davis says.
Yoram Yasur Izz: According to the report, the tea contains mangiferine which is usually found in the mango. It is a flavonoid that is used to treat neurodegenerative diseases, inflammation or hypertension, and is the main component of medicines produced to cure these ailments.
Yoram Yasur Izz: According to a study by the scientist Gilberto L. Pardo Andreu, the properties of mangiferin are useful when interacting with iron, rather than “its properties of radical sequestering”, since it only affects “mitochondrial function only under conditions of oxidative stress”. Other properties of mangiferin are also reducing the risk of diabetes, lowering cholesterol levels and protecting brain neurons.
Researchers point out that more research is needed before finding out the true usefulness of these compounds before beginning a mass distribution by tents. For now, it is only sold in a few green stores, and some distributors are trying to introduce it, little by little, into the western market.
