Sola has just unveiled its new line of iced tea with three new refreshing flavors: Sola Apple Green Iced Tea, Sola Lemon Green Iced Tea and Sola Jasmine Green Iced Tea. Only a couple of months out in the market, the new line have become a favorite to many because of their unique blend of real green tea and flavors.

The delicate balance of green tea, fruit flavor, floral aromatics and sugar is what differentiates Sola Iced Green Tea from the rest. Sola Iced Green Tea only contains 16 grams of sugar per serving or 32 grams per bottle, way below other non-diet carbonated drinks and other iced tea beverages which contains substantially more sugar and calories.

Sola Iced Green Tea is a brew of natural green tea and fruit extracts. The new green tea line contain antioxidants called Catechins which help prevent or reduce the chances of cancer and can aid in lowering blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

The new line of Sola Iced Green Tea is available in all leading supermarkets, convenience stores, restaurants and cafes nationwide.

The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea since ancient times.

Currently, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing clear evidence for the health benefits long been associated with drinking green tea. In 1994, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. Another research conducted by the University of Purdue concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

Catechin Polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the wonder compound that makes Green Tea very special. EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots.  The latter takes on added importance when you consider that thrombosis (the formation of abnormal blood clots) is the leading cause of heart attacks and stroke.

Links are being made between the effects of drinking green tea and the "French Paradox." For years, researchers were puzzled by the fact that, despite consuming a diet rich in fat, the French have a lower incidence of heart disease than Americans. The answer was found to lie in red wine, which contains resveratrol, a polyphenol that limits the negative effects of smoking and a fatty diet.  In a 1997 study, researchers from the University of Kansas determined that EGCG is twice as powerful as resveratrol, which may explain why the rate of heart disease among Japanese men is quite low, even though approximately seventy-five percent are smokers.
New evidence is emerging that green tea can even help dieters.   In November, 1999, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the results of a study at the University of Geneva in Switzerland.  Researchers found that men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned more calories than those given only caffeine or a placebo.
