Dry herb vaping: Green tea as a fat-burning antioxidant
One of the perks about switching to vaping to quit smoking is that the vaper can gradually decrease their nicotine consumption over time. Once they start vaping zero-nicotine e-liquids, they can begin transitioning to dry herb oils like green tea which is shown to provide several holistic health benefits, as well. Some of these benefits include its seemingly miraculous abilities to burn fat and act as an antioxidant. Research further indicates that green tea extract helps rid the body of carcinogens and other toxins, including the chemicals and additives commonly found inside food products.
Green tea is high in polyphenols which reduce inflammation and help prevent cell damage caused by free radicals, chemotherapy, and some illnesses. In fact, the American College of Nutrition recently released the results of a new study which indicate that green tea has such a wide range of holistic effects on the human body that it is now the most popular beverage in the world, even more so than even water. The study entitled Beneficial effects of green tea--a review is published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NCBI).
Green tea vaping burns fat.
When traveling to the local drug store in search of the latest and most powerful appetite suppressant or diet aid on the market, many might be surprised to learn that these products almost always list green tea as a primary ingredient. Another scientific study conducted in 2008 entitled The Effect of Green Tea Extract on Fat Oxidation at Rest and during Exercise: Evidence of Efficacy and Proposed Mechanisms (NCBI) offers more proof of green tea’s fat-burning capabilities.
According to the report, daily drinkers of this this herbal tea oxidize body fat at an increased rate of about 17 percent compared to non-drinkers. And vaping the dry herb provides the same effects but in much more convenient and portable device.
Green tea vaping regulates blood sugar levels.
The scientific community is currently conducting research involving green tea’s effects on diabetic patients living with obesity. With this disease, the body has difficulty in adequately processing glucose or blood sugars. In another NCBI study from 2008 entitled Green tea: A boon for periodontal and general health, scientists suggest that this dry herb offers the following positive effects:
- Boosts glucose processing levels
- Increases lipid metabolism rates
- Promotes the burning of excess fat
- Reduces body weight
Furthermore, the increased levels of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) found in green tea have also proven to promote insulin resistance while warding off other antidiabetic symptoms.
Green tea vaping offers antioxidant benefits.
One of the leading causes of many forms of cancer is an uncontrollable growth of abnormal cells. Research indicates that this abnormal cell growth can easily be attributed to free radical damage. In the scientific study entitled Green tea consumption and breast cancer risk or recurrence: a meta-analysis (NCBI), the co-authors indicate that women who drink this herbal concoction daily have 20-30 percent lower risks of being diagnosed with breast cancer. A similar study published indicates that men drinking or vaping green tea have similarly lower risks of acquiring prostate cancer. And a third study also claims that green tea enthusiasts are 42 percent less likely to develop colorectal cancer.
