Oolong Tea Health Benefits

Oolong tea is derived from the buds, leaves and stems of the Camellia sinensis plant; in fact every tea is made from this plant so it’s no surprise. The tea undergoes only a small degree of fermentation during its processing, which gives oolong a flavour somewhat similar to black tea but more akin to green tea.


Drinking oolong tea has not been proven to treat any health condition.


Although consumption of oolong tea may offer certain health benefits, it’s important to consult your primary care provider to determine which dose might be appropriate for you.


The polyphenolic compound in oolong tea is also responsible for the removal of free radicals in our body, because it functions as an antioxidant and stimulates the behaviour of other free radical compounds in the body.


Therefore, consuming daily doses of oolong tea can help people from the potential harm that these free-moving cells often pose to the human body, including cancer, atherosclerosis, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, neurodegeneration, and diabetes.


Oolong tea is used as an herbal brew for treating type-2 diabetic disorders and as an addition to other supplementary drugs for treating that disease.


It regulates the amount of blood sugar and insulin that is in the bloodstream at any one time, so the dangerous dips and spikes in blood sugar that can be so disastrous for diabetic patients was reduced.


Regular consumption of oolong tea is works wonders for the skin. Most skin problems occur due to exposure to free radicals.


The antioxidants called polyphenols which are present in this tea, destroy the free radicals, thereby providing relief from a spectrum of skin problems.


The tea diminishes wrinkles and improves the tone and elasticity of skin, giving it a more youthful appearance.


Oolong tea contains various minerals like calcium, manganese, copper, carotene, selenium, potassium and vitamins A, B, C, E and K. In addition to these, it contains folic acid, niacin amide and other detoxifying alkaloids
