Welcome to part three in a series exploring the intricacies of combining Pürblack Live Resin Shilajit with various natural medicines. Today we will be immersing ourselves in the ancient, sacred realm of green tea.
Used ceremoniously for thousands of years by Asian cultures, tea is one of a handful of beverages that has completely transformed peoples’ way of life on the planet. It’s hard to comprehend the scope & majesty of something so magnificent like tea, perhaps even more so when we are talking about the entirely new level reached by the shilajit/tea combination. Formerly Camellia Sinensis, now Camellia Synergensis.
Let us begin by observing a few o the compounds that give green tea its place in the health food hall of fame. Perhaps the most notable feature is the high concentration of catechins, specifically epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg). Often cited as being one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet; EGCg is also an active metabolic enhancer, increasing the rate at which the body burns calories. This novel free-radical scavenger may also support healthy cholesterol levels.
Feeling alert & calm are other commonly reported facets of the green tea experience. These states are attributable to an amino acid called L-theanine. Theanine exhibits some very intriguing nootropic and adaptogenic effects on the mind & body; it promotes alpha brain wave production, as well as harmonizing serotonin & dopamine levels. When alpha waves are dominant in the brain, a state of focused serenity is induced. Normally this only happens when one is meditating or daydreaming.
For these reasons, l-theanine synergize incredibly well with caffeine or other stimulants. Anxiety, rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, & the jitters dissipate within 30 minutes of dosing. It provides a soft, welcoming outline to the sometimes abrasive caffeine experience. Said combination can be very useful for studying & other mentally taxing work. This amino also has been investigated for preventing lowered glutathione levels due to prolonged alcohol consumption.
Now you can see that green tea is worth including in your daily regimen, even more so when combined with Pürblack Shilajit. All the innate anxiolytic effects of shilajit compound with theanine to transport one into a realm of untouchable quiet & solidarity. You will be surrounded by countless people breathing shallowly, impatiently tapping their feet in a frenzy of sympathetic nervousness. Not you though; you stand tall, your feet planted firmly on Terra Firma, inhaling & exhaling thoroughly and deeply. The tranquility emanating from your being repels waves of anxious energy, generated by this mechanical, chaotic world. It’s like Teflon for the mind; not a single negative thought can stick.
As if that weren’t enough, there is also the theory that the humic acids in shilajit work as a carrier, transporting molecules of EGCg to the frontlines in your body’s ongoing war on free radicals. Perhaps it is transmuted into something even more powerful; only time and more advanced scientific studies will tell.
For now, when choosing your green tea make sure it is organic, and for an extra kick go for the matcha. Matcha is an extraordinary variety of green tea that spends several weeks before harvest growing in the shade, which boosts levels of theanine, chlorophyll, and EGCg to ridiculously high concentrations. Also, over half of the nutrition in tea is not water-soluble and remains in the leaves after steeping. Since Matcha is a powdered whole-leaf tea, nothing is wasted; this results in drastically enhanced health benefits. Thanks for reading & have a tea-rrific day!
