Let me talk about Tea…or Chai as what we call it ….do you know that After water, Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. It has a cooling, slightly bitter, astringent  flavour which many enjoy…There are at least six varieties of tea White Tea, Yellow Tea, Green Tea, Oolong Tea, Black tea and post-fermented teas of which the most commonly found on the market are white, green, Olong, and black. Some varieties, such as traditional Oolong Tea and Pu-erh Tea, a post-fermented tea, can be used medicinally.

Tea plants are native to East and South Asia and probably originated around the point of confluence of the lands of northeast India, north Burma, southwest China, and Tibet. Although tales exist in regards to the beginnings of tea being used as a beverage, no one is sure of its exact origins. The usage of tea as a beverage is first recorded in the Chinese classics Shennong Ben Cao Jing. It was already a common drink during Qin Dynasty (around 200 BC) and became widely popular during Tang Dynasty, when it was spread to Korea and Japan. Trade of tea by the Chinese to Western/European  nations in the 19th century spread tea and the tea plant to numerous locations around the world.

Now what are the benefits of Drinking Tea

Antioxidants effect. It is know that tea contains antioxidants, especially when we are talking about green tea. Antioxidant polyphenols activate the enzyme that is responsible for dissolving the excess of the triglyceride inside the human body. This means drinking tea is a good way for weight loss. Moreover, the antioxidants help the cells to repair and regenerate, slowing down the aging.

Anti-cancer effect. Many studies showed that green tea protects against lung, prostate and breast cancer. According to the Kyushu University, the antioxidant responsible of this it is called epigallocatechin gallate ( EGCG ) . Green tea can help prevent cancer and heart disease, reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Tea may reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke. Unwanted blood clots formed from cholesterol and blood platelets cause heart attack and stroke. Drinking tea may help keep your arteries smooth and clog-free, the same way a drain keeps your bathroom pipes clear. A 5.6-year study from the Netherlands found a 70 percent lower risk of fatal heart attack in people who drank at least two to three cups of black tea daily compared to non-tea drinkers.

Tea keeps the human body hydrated. Beverages that contain caffeine dehydrates you and because of its low amount of caffeine, tea hydrates you providing in the same time the necessary amount of antioxidants.

Bones protection. Drinking tea regularly makes your bones stronger, has been discovered by scientist sustain that this might be caused by the presence of the phytochemicals in the tea.

Teeth protection. Tea contains fluoride and tannins which are responsible for reducing the plaque buildup and the tooth decay.

Lower blood pressure. Oolong tea and green tea can reduce the risk of high blood pressure 50% by only drinking half a cup daily.

Digestion. Tea is a very good and effective digestive used in China for thousands years now.

Stomach cramps. Red tea can act as an anti-spasmodic agent.

Bad breath Reduction. The antioxidant polyphenols found in tea keep under control the bacteria that causes bad breath.

Immune System. Tea drinkers have around 5 times the anti-bacterial proteins called T-cell which are helping the human body to fight against infections.

Tea is calorie-free. Tea itself has no calories unless you choose to add sweeteners or milk, making it a satisfying, low-cal way to wake up and maybe even shed a few pounds.

Tea increases your metabolism. Is a slow metabolic rate keeping you from losing the weight you want? Some studies suggest that green tea may be able to boost your metabolic rate slightly, allowing you to burn an additional 70-80 calories a day. While this may not seem like much, over time it could add up.

Tea helps keep your skin acne-free. The antioxidants in green tea may have an effect on acne, and in some cases have been shown to work as well as a 4% solution of the much more harsh benzoyl peroxide.

Tea has less caffeine than coffee. Coffee usually has two to three times the caffeine of tea (unless you’re a fan of Morning Thunder, which combines caffeine with mate, an herb that acts like caffeine in our body). An eight-ounce cup of coffee contains around 135 mg caffeine; tea contains only 30 to 40 mg per cup. If drinking coffee gives you the jitters, causes indigestion or headaches or interferes with sleep — switch to tea.

Tea can help prevent arthritis. Research suggests that older women who are tea drinkers are 60 percent less likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis than those who do not drink tea. The same effect has not been measured in older males, however, but additional studies may prove otherwise.

Tea can help fight the flu. Black tea may bolster your efforts to fight the flu as participants in a study who gargled with a black tea extract solution twice daily where more immune to the flu virus than those who didn’t.

Tea helps fight infection. Tea contains chemicals called alkylamine antigens which act similarly to some tumor cells and bacteria, boosting the body’s immune response. It has even been shown to have an effect on severe infections like sepsis.

Tea may reduce the risk of Parkinson’s Disease. New studies are suggesting that regular tea consumption may help protect the body from developing this neurological disorder.

Tea can prevent food poisoning. Catechin, one of the bitter ingredients found in green tea has been shown to effectively kill the bacteria which cause food poisoning and minimize the effects of the toxins that are produced by those bacteria.

Tea can lead to the inhibition of HIV. New research from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology has found that a substance found in green tea may inhibit the HIV VIRUS from binding and can be a healthy part of a suppression regiment.

Tea may help prevent diabetes. There is some evidence to suggest that green tea helps lower the risk of getting Type 2 Diabetes, though future research is needed to confirm the association.

Tea can lower blood sugar. Tea contains catechin and polysaccharides which have been demonstrated to have a noticeable effect on lowering blood sugar.

Tea can prevent iron damage. Those suffering from iron disorders like haemochromatosis may be helped by drinking tea, which contains tannins that limit the amount of iron the body can absorb.

Tea can help with nasal decongestion. If you’ve got a bit of a cold, drinking black tea with lemon may help clear up some of the congestion that’s bothering you. Just make sure your body doesn’t become dependent on the treatment.

Tea can create a calmer but more alert state of mind. Studies have shown that the amino acid L-theanine found in the tea plant alters the attention networks in the brain and can have demonstrable effects on the brain waves. More simply, tea can help you relax and concentrate more fully on tasks.

Tea lowers the chance of having cognitive impairment. Research on Japanese adults who consumed at least 2 cups of Green Tea daily found that those individuals had cut their risk of cognitive impairment by half.

Tea lowers stress hormone levels. Black tea has been shown to reduce the effects of a stressful event. Participants in a study experienced a 20% drop in cortisol, a stress hormone, after drinking 4 cups of tea daily for one month.

Tea eases irritability, headaches, nervous tension and insomnia. Red Tea also known as rooibos, is an herbal tea that originated in Africa. It has been show to have many relaxing effects that help reduce a wide range of irritations and inflammations on the body.

Tea can cause a temporary increase in short term memory. Not feeling on your game today? Try drinking some tea. The caffeine it contains may give you the boost you need to improve your memory, at least for a few hours

Just tip me over and pour me out!

Did you ever come across the “Superfetation“.

Superfetation…..let me put it simple terms the mothers will develop a second pregnancy a few days before delivering their first…. sounds interesting..shocking..and amazing.Superfetation is claimed to be common in some species of animals, but is extremely rare in humans…Risk is that the second baby is often born prematurely, which can increase its odds of experiencing lung development problems.

Some very Rare cases

In 1992, Taylor and Evan Barth, conceived 4 weeks apart, were born in Hawaii, USA to Michelle and John Barth. Taylor, the one conceived later, was born first.

In 2007, Ame and Lia Herrity, conceived 3 weeks apart, were born in the United Kingdom to Amelia Spence and George Herrity.

In May 2007, Harriet and Thomas Mullineux, also conceived 3 weeks apart, were born in Benfleet, Essex, UK to Charlotte and Matt Mullineux.

In 2009, Todd and Julia Grovenburg of Fort Smith, Arkansas received international media attention for Mrs. Grovenburg’s conception of an additional child while already pregnant with a child conceived two and a half weeks earlier.

Now In Animals…….

Animals that have been claimed to be subject to superfetation include rodents,mice,horses, sheeps and kangaroos…and some fishes..

Now what amazes is that in a recent study European brown hares are capable of being pregnant twice at the same time, and can potentially be permanently pregnant……yeah thats true…

Dr Kathleen Roellig…who led this study said…We think superfetation might be an evolutionary adaptation to increase reproductive success.

I remember a joke in one of a movie..where it says that he is not my twin, but born 1 month later….it was joke….but It is reality…

How ever technology we have got..and how much ever research we do..there are plenty of things which we we humans don’t understand and know….so thats what is “GOD”….or the SUPREME BEING….

GOD BLESS US ALL……….
