As usual, it’s the simplest experiments that I do which tend to surprise me the most. This one is a great example.
This week, I’ve been testing to see if I can experience the benefits of green tea in a measurable way in less than a week. To see how this is going so far, check out yesterday in the benefits of green tea.
So, let’s see how today has gone.
The Benefits of Green Tea – Day 6
Concentration and mental abilities are always hard to measure, so I’m not sure whether or not there’s any serious progress in that regard. This week has gone well, but is it the tea? I can’t say.
Now, weight and blood pressure are two things that are easier to measure, and woah are there some interesting numbers so far!
Starting with blood pressure. I’m down 14 points on systolic and 12 points on diastolic from my measurement at the beginning of the week. I’m certain a portion of that is due to the fact that I started measuring when I was looking forward to a week of work, and now it’s the weekend and I’m relaxed. However, even taking that into account, the results are pleasant! A discount of 50% on the results is still fantastic. Of course, this doesn’t replace trained medical advice, but it indicates that perhaps green tea should be researched more.
As to weight, I’m not going to state my results quite yet because the change was too dramatic. I don’t object to a big change in my favour, but it was large enough to be an issue of experimental error. I’ll retest tomorrow and see if the results are consistent on the final day of the experiment.
