Tea has been one of the most favorite and healthy drinks all over the world, promoted as a safe stimulant and also an easy remedy to fight against various diseases and disorders. Tea is available in various types and the most widely preferred amongst these types are black tea and green tea. Certainly you can drink a nice balance of black tea and green tea in your diet. Both are fine beverages and much better than a lot of alternative beverages, like soda. The fact that you are even thinking about tea is a step in the right direction. However, many health-conscious people catch up in a dilemma over the preference of teas and therefore the conquest of black tea vs green tea has been going on in their mind over a long time!


Black tea since a long time has been promoted as a natural drink that prevents the growth of breast, stomach and colon cancer cells in the body. Although this was claimed by many people, it had to be scientifically proven. However, in recent times, some scientists have found out that it is the chemicals present in black tea that actually stop the growth of cancerous cells in the body. Black tea helps in preventing heart attacks and other dangerous heart diseases, by keeping down the cholesterol, clogging of arteries and also cures impaired blood vessel functioning. Black tea has the ability to fight viruses that result in diseases such as diarrhea, skin infections, tooth decay, pneumonia and cystitis.


Green tea works almost in the same way as black tea does. Green tea helps in fighting the bacteria and viruses that lead to infections in various parts of the body and therefore prevents infections up to a large extent. Green tea would be a very good option, if you are facing the problems of high cholesterol. Regular intake of green tea helps reduce the bad cholesterol levels in the body and helps in maintaining a healthy heart. Researches and experiments have proved that green tea minimizes the chances of rheumatoid arthritis. This becomes possible due to the polyphenol chemicals that act as antioxidants against the oxidative stress. Green tea is also used in treating the problem of impaired immune function.


Caffeine is the most important area of concern nowadays, as there are many side effects associated with it. It has been found that one cup of black tea contains around 40-42 mg of caffeine, whereas one cup of green tea has around 20-22 mg of caffeine. Overdose of caffeine through either of the teas can lead to many side effects like restlessness, insomnia, headache, frequent urination, nausea etc. Hence, to avoid these side effects, know your capacity and limit your regular intake.


So black tea vs green tea, who's the winner? Now it is up to you to decide! You should make a wise choice by understanding your body type and needs.
