Since ancient times, green tea has been popular in Asian cultures like China and Japan. It is their beverage of choice because of its medicinal benefits. Its popularity has surged in the western hemisphere largely because of its proven ability to treat ailments such as headaches and depression. Dentist Burbank supports the scientific research regarding green tea and its health benefits. It has proven effective in fighting cancer, lowering high cholesterol levels, dealing with cardiovascular problems, ensuring immune infection, and preventing arthritis, among others. What makes green tea special is that it is rich in catechin polyphenols (epigallocathechin gallate or EGCG), which is an effective antioxidant. Green tea is known to prevent cancer and weight loss. It also inhibits abnormal formation of blood clots.

Dental Burbank believes that the study published by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) about green tea consumption should be taken seriously. Given the close links between dental health and overall health, it has been found that green tea also helps promote healthy teeth and gums by fighting periodontal diseases. According to Dentists Burbank, there are lots of information regarding the study done before by Japanese researchers when they analyzed 940 men focusing on their periodontal health. They found out that people who drank green tea regularly obtain good periodontal health.

There were three indicators examined regarding periodontal diseases. When green tea was consumed during the study, it was discovered that the periodontal pocket depth, attachment loss of gum tissue and bleeding on probing of the gum tissues (three indicators) decreased its potential on having periodontal disease. According to Cosmetic Irvine, the research has shown that the catechin, which is an antioxidant in green tea, helps promote good periodontal health. Catechin interferes in the body’s inflammatory response to periodontal bacteria. Because of this type of antioxidant, there is less chance of getting chronic inflammatory disease (periodontal disease) that affects gums and bones that support the teeth. DDS Irvine agreed with what Dr. David Cochran, DDS, PhD, President of the AAP and Chair of the Department of Periodontics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, when he said: “That is why it is so important to find simple ways to boost periodontal health, such as regularly drinking green tea – something already known to possess certain health-related benefits.”

Green tea helps promote periodontal health and prevents diseases closely associated with in periodontal diseases. This is because green tea interferes with our body’s response to periodontal bacteria. There are, however, concerns regarding the harmful effects of drinking green tea because it also has caffeine. Although it contains caffeine, which sometimes lead to insomnia (the only negative side effect reported), the caffeine content in tea is relatively small. Coffee, on the other hand, has more caffeine in its content compared to tea. Tea, therefore, is safe to drink. This is a beverage that is easy to find. It gives a lot of health benefits not only to our overall health but also to our dental health.

Ceylon Spinach, Malabar Spinach, Malabar Nightshade Basella alba F. Basellaceae


Perrenial, soft-stemmed sprawler, which will climb if given something for support. Lush-green, heart-shaped leaves, to 20cm in length, form alternately along the stem. Small, sessile, bisexual flowers consist of four white/pink fleshy petals. Round, brown seeds set within a soft, fleshy, dark-purple casing, with purple sap, that looks like a small, round berry.

Medicinal Uses

The plant is a rich source of chlorophyll, a valuable blood building component, which also provides favourable intestinal flora, digestive enzymes, and stimulation of secretions of the stomach, liver and pancreas. The mucilaginous leaves are valued for removing mucus and toxins from the body.

The species Basella rubra, with red stems and red/green leaves has been a folk medicine for cancer treatment.

Culinary Uses

Leaves can be picked by nipping off individually or tips of stems with leaves can be cut. Pick as required for each meal for optimum freshness. Cut leaves and stems do keep well if wrapped in plastic and placed in refrigerator crisper. Young, small tip leaves are tasty in salads, tucked into sandwiches, used as a garnish, or served with a dip (using the leaves like cracker biscuits). Fresh, young leaves have a varying taste to different people; some people say they taste like fresh garden peas, others say like sweetcorn, fresh beans or lettuce. Large, mature leaves have a stronger flavour, more like spinach, no doubt because of their rich iron and chlorophyll content. Large leaves can be lightly steamed, sliced and tossed in stir-fries, added to quiche, soups, casseroles, and mixed with vegetable dishes. Leaves infused in boiling water are drunk as a tea. Tender tips of stems are lightly steamed, resembling asparagus in flavour. Flowers can be eaten. The juicy, purple berries can be used to colour jellies, sweets, drinks and for face painting. The addition of a little lemon juice makes the dye more effective. A quick tasty meal can be prepared by dicing a handful of leaves for each serve and lightly steam in a little water until just limp (but still a nice green colour). Whisk in 1-2 beaten eggs for each serve and gently cook until the egg has set. Serve on toast.

The plant is an excellent survival food.
