Important Benefits of White Tea


How can Purely Living White Tea Kombucha build your health? The fermentation process has been shown to effectively increase and release higher levels of antioxidants found in white tea.

Minimally Processed

White tea is unique in that it undergoes minimal processing than other teas because it is dried at low temperatures. This aids in the retention of higher levels of phytochemicals.


Researchers from Kingston University found that the high antioxidants in white tea can help protect against cancer and heart disease. White tea is also found to reduce inflammation along with aiding in the protection of elastin and collagen in our body. "We were testing very small amounts far less than you would find in a drink," Professor Naughton, from the School of Life Sciences at Kingston University and a leading inflammation specialist, said. "The early indicators are that white tea reduces the risk of inflammation which is characteristic of rheumatoid arthritis and some cancers as well as wrinkles.” Researchers from Kingston University tested 21 plants and herbs but were surprised to find white tea outperformed them all.


Studies have shown that white tea has significant effects in reducing and preventing cancer. For instance, studies were done researching the effects of white tea with colon cancer cells. The results had shown that white tea had antioxidant and antiproliferative effects against cancer cells, but protected normal cells against DNA damage. White tea extract increased a specific type of cell death in laboratory cultures of two different types of non-small cell lung cancer cells, indicating that the tea may have an anti-cancer effect also, according to a study published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research.

Fat Metabolism


Catechins, an antioxidant found in white tea, are known for excellent anti-cancer properties along with other health benefits including cardiovascular treatment and reduction of body fat. Because of white tea’s young leaves and the minimal environmental exposure and processing, white tea has been found to be high in Catechins. Dr. Marc Winnefeld, Research Laboratory Manager at Beiersdorf’s Research & Development Center, researched the effect of white tea on fat cells. Dr. Winnefeld says "the extract solution induced a decrease in the expression of genes associated with the growth of new fat cells, while also prompting existing adipocytes to break down the fat they contain." His findings are published in the journal Nutrition and Metabolism.


Another benefit of white tea, according to American Diabetes Association, is that research has shown tea to reduce risk of developing Type 2 diabetes. According to an article by PubMed.Gov white tea is shown to reduce diabetes associated with abnormalities. This includes reduction in blood glucose; increase in liver weight, glycogen, and insulin sensitivity; reduction in LDL cholesterol; and improvement in glucose tolerance. According to PubMed.Gov, a study done on white tea showed that it not only improved glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, but it also helped reduce oxidation damage on the brain from diabetes.

Historical Benefits

Kombucha is not a new health beverage. Its benefits have been documented in history. Early to mid-20th century, German medical research had recognized kombucha to be effective as an intestinal regulator and beneficial in cases of digestive disturbances, constipation, hemorrhoids, kidney stones, gall bladder problems, diabetes, arteriosclerosis, cholesterol, high blood pressure, angina, gout, gouty eczema, arthritis, anxiety, headaches, and fatigue. The director of “Academy of Chemists” at Braunschweig recorded that kombucha invigorates the entire glandular system, harmonizing and balancing metabolism, and unwanted fat deposits removed or prevented. (Irion H, Lehrgang fur Drogistenfachschule, Rudolf Muller Publ., Vol 2, 1944). Russian scientists’ research continued to establish efficacy in wound healing (Markarjan G, Dissertation, TEZI, 1953) and infectious wounds (Matinjan A, TEZI, 16, 1953) and various intestinal diseases (Nurazjan A, Diss, TEZI, 1954). Russian hospital settings, in particular, showed antibacterial benefits and efficacy in tonsillitis, enterocolitis, inflammatory internal diseases, stomach catarrh due to deficient acid production, intestinal inflammation, dysentery, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure and sclerosis. Professor Barbancik and Dr. R Sklenar, MD, later report and confirm these various therapeutic successes with kombucha.

Research has shown fermentation to increase bioavailability of antioxidants. Thus, combining the benefits of our top quality white tea with the benefits of our time-consuming kombucha fermentation creates an incredible powerhouse!
