If You Experience Joint Pain, Here's a New Reason Why You Should Drink Green Tea

According to the Center for Disease Control, arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States.1 Arthritis is so widespread that more than 20 million people are living with the disease.2

Green tea has amazing health benefits, and it tastes good too.

Common treatments for arthritis include over-the-counter and prescription drugs, some of which have very harmful side effects, but a new and tasty alternative may offer some much-needed joint pain relief!


If you experience joint pain and arthritis, then you need to know about green tea. While studies show that regular green tea can fight joint inflammation, highly concentrated Ujido Matcha Green Tea may also protect against painful inflammatory diseases, like arthritis.

Tea for Toes (And Joints!)

Anyone with arthritis pain knows that it can affect daily life, making small tasks like writing and walking unbearable, but a recent study found that green tea can soothe arthritic joints.

Researchers at the University of Michigan discovered that green tea contains a compound called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG for short). EGCG inhibits the production of the molecules that contribute to inflammation and joint damage in people with rheumatoid arthritis.3

The EGCG in green tea suppresses inflammation in the connective tissue of arthritis sufferers too.4

So if you or someone you love experience joint pain and inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis, then green tea can be a delicious way to relieve symptoms.

Even better, green tea has benefits for everyone!

Healing Tea

People in China have been drinking green tea for thousands of years, and it's no wonder. Green tea has amazing health benefits, and it tastes good!

Green tea has a variety of compounds that contribute to well being, including polyphenols, catechins, and antioxidants. These substances work in your body to fight harmful, damaged cells and to boost your immunity.

Here are just some of the ways green tea can help your health. Green tea:

  • Inhibits the growth of prostate cancer.5
  • Fights obesity and weight gain6
  • Lowers blood pressure7
  • Improves HDL (good cholesterol) and lowers total cholesterol8
  • Stabilizes blood sugar9

As you can see, green tea has amazing preventative properties and can be a flavorful addition to your daily routine.

Tea drinking is also a soothing ritual, so it can calm your mind as it heals your body.

    Matcha caused me great finger joint pain. It is not good for everyone!! Google it if you have any reacts to green or strong tea.

    Any brand of matcha green tea will work fine. Be sure it's good quality -- I buy the Republic of Tea brand and another brand at Whole Foods. And Starbuck's has regular green tea as matcha. Excellent to get/stay wide awake and energized and strengthens immunity, as well as super arthritic pain reliever. Prepare it w/ milk as a latte or just put it in water as hot or cold beverage.

    Some people are able to use green tea for joint pain but others should be careful. I starting drinking green tea after I gave up soda pop and had horrible pain in my wrists, knees, bones, etc. I posted about this on my blog here - I've received many, mony people who found that post and stated the same. It's amazing how many people find that tea is causing issues.

    Unfortunately it is not a great choice for everyone.
