What is vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12, also known as cyanocobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that is part of the B

vitamin family. These vitamins help support adrenal function, help calm and maintain a healthy

nervous system, and are necessary for key metabolic processes. Taking vitamin B12 is important

to DNA synthesis and maintaining healthy nerve cells.

Why is vitamin B12 necessary?

Knowing the facts about the B12 vitamin and its benefits is vital: this essential micronutrient

affects the development and maintenance of red blood cells, nerve cells, and normal myelination

(covering) of nerve cells. It also aids in the production of DNA and RNA, and the production of

neurotransmitters.

What are the signs of a Vitamin B12 deficiency?

Symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency include fatigue, muscle weakness, shortness of breath,

dizziness, numbness, heart palpitations, bleeding gums and mouth sores, nausea, poor appetite

and diarrhea. Vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms may present themselves slowly and may not be

recognized for some time. A deficiency of B12 can produce pernicious anemia, which can lead

to memory loss, confusion and even dementia.

Since we obtain vitamin B12 only from animal foods in our diet, vitamin B12 deficiencies tend

to develop among strict vegetarians, especially vegan children, who eat no animal products.

However, the elderly, and those who are unable to absorb vitamin B12 from the intestinal tract

are also at risk, as well as those who are pregnant or who suffer hemorrhage or intestinal

disorders.

Can green tea aid weight loss?

It’s thought the antioxidants catechin and caffeine found in green tea may have a role in helping the body burn more calories – sometimes referred to as speeding up the metabolism – which can help weight loss.

Green tea preparations used for losing weight are extracts of green tea that contain a higher concentration of catechins and caffeine than the typical green tea beverage prepared from a tea bag and boiling water.

A well-conducted review from 2012 of 18 studies involving 1,945 people found no significant effect of weight loss from drinking green tea.

Does green tea cut cholesterol?

A good-quality review from 2013 of 11 studies involving 821 people found daily consumption of green and black tea (as a drink or a capsule) could help lower cholesterol and blood pressure thanks to tea and its catechins. The authors of the review caution that most of the trials were short term and more good quality long-term trials are needed to back up their findings.

Another good-quality review from 2011 found drinking green tea enriched with catechins led to a small reduction in cholesterol, a main cause of heart disease and stroke. However, it’s still not clear from the evidence how much green tea we’d need to drink to see a positive effect on our health, or what the long-term effects of drinking green tea are on our overall health.

Can green tea help prevent or delay Alzheimer’s disease?

Evidence of a positive link between drinking green tea and Alzheimer’s disease is weak. A 2010 laboratory study using animal cells found a green tea preparation rich in antioxidants protected against the nerve cell death associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Whether these lab results can be reproduced in human trials remains to be seen. As such, the findings do not conclusively show green tea combats Alzheimer’s disease.

Can green tea lower blood pressure?

2014 survey of data from previously published studies looked at the evidence of whether drinking green tea could help lower blood pressure. There was evidence of a modest reduction in people with high blood pressure who consumed green tea. But whether this reduction would lead to clinically significant results, such as preventing the onset of heart disease or stroke, is unclear.

GREEN TEA OVERVIEW

Green tea is a product made from the Camellia sinensis plant. It can be prepared as a beverage, which can have some health effects. Or an “extract” can be made from the leaves to use as medicine.

Green tea is used to improve mental alertness and thinking.

It is also used for weight loss and to treat stomach disorders, vomitingdiarrhea,headaches, bone loss (osteoporosis), and solid tumor cancers.

Some people use green tea to prevent various cancers, including breast cancer,prostate cancercolon cancer, gastric cancerlung cancer, solid tumor cancers andskin cancer related to exposure to sunlight. Some women use green tea to fight human papilloma virus (HPV), which can cause genital warts, the growth of abnormal cells in the cervix (cervical dysplasia), and cervical cancer.

Green tea is also used for Crohn’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diseases of theheart and blood vessels, diabeteslow blood pressurechronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), dental cavities (caries), kidney stones, and skin damage.

Instead of drinking green tea, some people apply green tea bags to their skin to soothe sunburn and prevent skin cancer due to sun exposure. Green tea bags are also used to decrease puffiness under the eyes, as a compress for tired eyes or headache, and to stop gums from bleeding after a tooth is pulled.

Green tea in candy is used for gum disease.

Green tea is used in an ointment for genital warts. Do not confuse green tea with oolong tea or black tea. Oolong tea and black tea are made from the same plant leaves used to make green tea, but they are prepared differently and have different medicinal effects. Green tea is not fermented at all. Oolong tea is partially fermented, and black tea is fully fermented.

THREE WAYS CAFFEINE MAY SUPPORT AN INCREASE IN CALORIE BURNING

 

  1. CAFFEINE MAY SUPPORT THE INCREASE OF LIPOLYSIS

Caffeine may temporarily support lipolysis, the breakdown of fat.

  1. CAFFEINE MAY TEMPORARILY SUPPORT THE INCREASE OF
    THERMOGENESIS

Caffeine, alone or in combination with other supplements, may temporarily raise one’s metabolism boosting calorieburning. Keep in mind that this effect may be diminished in people who habitually consume caffeine – especially those who habitually consume large quantities of caffeine (>300mg/day).

  1. CAFFEINE WORKS WITH GREEN TEA

Few people would doubt that tea is one of nature’s best drinks. And, research continues to examine the many potential benefits associated with tea consumption.

In weight loss supplements, it seems that green tea, in particular the catechin EGCG, when combined with caffeine, works synergistically. This combination has been suggested to boost circulating levels of norepinehrine, which stimulates the breakdown of stored fat and stored carbohydrate.
