The special processing of this oolong tea raises the levels of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid up to 40 times that found in other high-quality teas. This is achieved by using nitrogen in the usual oxidation phase and is a lengthy and complicated process that takes over 24 hours. GABA is a very important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. GABA is believed to have many health benefits, among which are:
LOWERING OF HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE: GABA is known for its role in regulating blood pressure. It is important not to drink it if you suffer from clinically diagnosed low blood pressure known as hypotension.
ANTI-CANCER PROPERTIES: Helps in the prevention of cell mutation.
BOOSTING PRODUCTION OF HUMAN GROWTH HORMONE: Helps burn fat, enhance muscle mass, eliminate cellulite, improve energy levels, cardiac output, skin elasticity, memory, endurance, liver function and bone mass.
BOOSTS DEEP SLEEP: Taken one hour before bedtime it will help maintain sleep in the second cycle.
DE-STRESS: GABA is produced by the body to aid relaxation by blocking excessive nerve signals related to anxiety. Lack of GABA is linked to epilepsy, seizures and some diseases of the brain like Huntington's and Parkinson's.
BALANCES BLOOD SUGAR: GABA lowers blood sugar by supporting and balancing the production of insulin, therefore, lowering the risk of diabetes.
BOOSTS IMMUNITY: Improves plasma concentration linked to resisting infection.
MENTAL ALERTNESS: In Japan, it is taken as part of the diet and is also given to children to stimulate mental alertness, improve memory and concentration. It is a very good cure for a hangover!
