Green Tea's health benefits are largely due to its high content of flavonoids -- plant derived compounds that are anti-oxidants. Green Tea is the best food source of a group called the 'catechins'. In test tubes, Catechins are more powerful than Vitmins C and E in halting
oxidative damage to cells and appears to have other disease fighting
properties. Studies have found an association between consuming
Green Tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder cancers. Additional benefits for regular consumers of green tea, include a reduced risk for heart disease, plus the anti-oxidants in green tea help block the
oxidation of LDL cholesterol (bad), increase HDL the good cholesterol
and improve artery function.
