It is well known that tea has many benefits. But why are there so many benefits to drinking tea? For ordinary people, they know it but don't know why. With the development of science, it was not until the early 19th century that the composition of the tea industry became clear. After modern scientific separation and identification, tea contains more than 450 organic chemical components and more than 40 inorganic mineral elements. The organic chemical and inorganic mineral elements in tea contain many nutritional and medicinal ingredients. Organic chemical components are mainly tea polyphenols, phytoalkali, proteins, amino acids, vitamins, pectin, organic acids, lipopolysaccharides, sugars, enzymes, pigments and so on. The content of organic chemical components in Tieguanyin, such as tea polyphenols, catechins, and various amino acids, is significantly higher than other teas. Inorganic mineral elements are: potassium, calcium, magnesium, cobalt, iron, manganese, aluminum, sodium, zinc, copper, nitrogen, phosphorus, fluorine, iodine, selenium, etc. The inorganic mineral elements contained in Tieguanyin, such as manganese, iron, fluorine, potassium, and sodium, are higher than other teas.
Basic tea ingredients
1, catechins: commonly known as tea tannins, is a unique component of tea, with bitterness, astringency and astringency. 2. Caffeine: It has a bitter taste and is an important ingredient in the taste of tea soup. 3. Minerals: Tea is rich in 11 minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and manganese.
Functions of Tea Basic Ingredients 1. Catechins: Commonly known as tea tannins, is a unique component of tea, with bitterness, astringency and astringency. Can be combined with caffeine in tea soup to ease the physiological effects of caffeine on the human body. With anti-oxidation, anti-abrupt change, anti-tumor, reduce cholesterol and low-density ester protein content in the blood, inhibit blood pressure rise, inhibit platelet aggregation, antibacterial, anti-product allergy and other effects. 2. Caffeine: With bitterness, it is an important component of the taste of tea soup. In black tea tea soup, it is combined with polyphenol-free compounds to form a complex; the tea soup forms an emulsification phenomenon when it is cold. Tea-specific catechins and their oxidative condensates can slow down and continue the excitement of caffeine, so drinking tea can keep long-distance driving people awake and more endurable. 3. Minerals: Tea is rich in 11 minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and manganese. Tea soup contains more cations and less anions, and belongs to alkaline foods. Helps keep body fluids alkaline and healthy. ① potassium: promote the elimination of blood sodium. High blood sodium content is one of the causes of high blood pressure. Drinking more tea can prevent high blood pressure. ② Fluoride: It has the effect of preventing tooth decay. ③ Manganese: It has the effects of anti-oxidation and anti-aging, enhances immune function, and helps calcium utilization. Because it is insoluble in hot water, it can be ground into tea powder for consumption. 4. Vitamins: ① Carotenoids: can be converted into vitamins in the human body, but can be supplemented only after drinking with tea. ② Vitamin B and Vitamin C: they are water-soluble and can be obtained from drinking tea. 5. Other functional ingredients: ① Flavonols can enhance the microvascular wall to eliminate bad breath. ② Saponin has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects. ③ Aminobutyric acid is produced by forcing tea to take anaerobic respiration during tea making. It is said that Jiayelong tea can prevent hypertension. The efficacy of tea Chinese ancients once believed that tea has ten virtues: tea is used to dispel stagnation, tea is used to drive sleep, tea is used to raise anger, tea is used to remove illness, tea is used to show respect, tea is used to show respect, Taking tea to support the body, taking tea to do it, taking tea can be elegant. Tang Song Lu Tong's "Seven Bowls of Tea Songs" also described the tea very vividly: "One bowl of throat kisses, two bowls of lonely boring, three bowls of dry bowels, only five thousand volumes of text. Four bowls of light Sweat, uneven life, scattered as far as possible to the pores. Five bowls of muscles and bones clear, six bowls of immortal spirit. Seven bowls can not eat too, only the two armpits learn Qingfengsheng.
