According to research by nutritionists, rice cooked with tea can prevent and treat four diseases:
Prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Tea polyphenols are the main substances in tea, accounting for about 70% to 80% of the water extract. Scientific experiments have proven that tea polyphenols can enhance the toughness of microvessels and prevent microvascular wall rupture and bleeding. Moreover, tea polyphenols can reduce blood cholesterol and inhibit atherosclerosis. Middle-aged and elderly people often eat tea and rice, which can soften blood vessels, reduce blood lipids, and prevent cardiovascular diseases.
Prevent stroke. One of the causes of cerebral apoplexy is related to the formation of lipid peroxide in the human body, which leads to the loss of elasticity of blood vessel walls. However, the tannic acid in tea water has the effect of inhibiting the formation of lipid peroxide, which can effectively prevent and treat stroke.
It has anti cancer and anti cancer effects. Tea polyphenols in tea can block the synthesis of nitrosamines in the body, thereby preventing the formation of digestive system tumors. Amines and nitrites are widely found in foods. "They are extremely prone to produce carcinogenic nitrosamines at a temperature of 37 ℃ and with appropriate acidification. Boiling rice with tea and water can effectively prevent the formation of nitrosamines, thereby achieving the goal of preventing gastrointestinal cancer such as gastrointestinal cancer.".
Prevent dental diseases. Fluoride in tea is an indispensable and important substance in dentin. If a small amount of fluoride is continuously immersed in tooth tissue, it can enhance the toughness and acid resistance of teeth, and prevent the occurrence of dental caries.
Summary: The method of cooking with tea is very simple: first, soak 1-3 grams of tea in boiling water for 4-9 minutes, take a small piece of clean gauze, filter the tea to remove the residue, and then set aside for use (overnight tea is not suitable); Then wash the rice into a pot, then pour the tea into the rice pot, cook and serve.
