So you know green tea is good for you and so is brown rice, but did you know what happens when the two are combined? You get flavorful and famous Genmaicha tea, which is another name for Japanese brown rice tea.
Genmaicha tea consists of green tea mixed with roasted brown rice. It is also called popcorn tea as the rice pops in this process, creating a nutty flavor with the fragrance of fresh and grassy green tea. It is loaded with several benefits we will be discussing below:
1. Balance Those Blood Sugar Levels
Do you struggle with unhealthy cravings? This is where brown rice tea comes in. Genmaicha tea contains an aroma of roasted rice and a touch of vegetal sweetness. This sweetness helps curb unhealthy cravings and balance blood sugar levels to keep those cravings in check.
2. Maintains Oral Hygiene
The polyphenols present in green tea leaves have many beneficial properties that strengthen our immune system. A unique property of this chemical is that it contains antioxidants that help fight tooth decay, bacteria, bad breath, and other oral diseases. We recommend replacing that early morning coffee with some brown rice green tea for oral health.
3. Reduces The Risk Of Certain Ailments
As mentioned, green tea contains several anti-oxidants, such as Epigallocatechin (EGCG). The presence of this chemical helps fight against cancer cells in the body and alleviates cell damage by encouraging the production of new cells.
Drinking green tea also reduces cholesterol levels and improves blood flow, further reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
4. Help Reduce Bloating And Eases Digestion
People often drink green tea to overcome bloating. The alkaline acid present in green tea helps break down fat and increases water retention by removing toxins from the body. This helps with digestion and alleviates bloating.
5. Helps You Relax
Green tea contains a chemical called GABA which impacts the neurotransmitters in your brain. This helps induce feeling of calmness and relaxation, allowing you to sleep easily. Genmaicha tea is also low in caffeine and induces a lighter feeling in the body.
