    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. University of Purdue researchers recently 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.

    Green tea originated in China over four thousand years ago before being brought to Japan in the 6th Century. Green tea is made with unoxidized leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant that is hand or machine picked, dried to remove moisture and then shaped by rolling or twisting depending on the final appearance desired. Since Green Tea goes through less processing than other varieties of tea, it has a higher EGCG level. EGCG is a catechin, which helps protect the body from harmful free radicals. In recent years, many of the legendary medicinal benefits of tea have been supported by the scientific community, making Green tea a more popular beverage than ever. Green Tea is known for its incredible health benefits. It boosts your metabolism, aids in losing weight, helps your immune system and is filled with vitamin C and beta carotene. I’d say that 3-4 cups is a good amount to drink! Keep it up!

    i think its meant to boost your metabalism up to 4% and helpful having it before you exercise but if you arnt exercising theres not much benifit (read that on here somewhere). Good for antioxidants, your skin etc

    I think the capsule form is better, or some brand called Matcha.

    Hi,

    Green tea has a high content of antioxidants. This is great for preventing cell damaging by free radicals, preventing diseases and aging.

    Reduces bad cholesterol levels and helps to reduce weight by increasing the rate of your metabolism.

    Just how much tea and which one?

    According to sources, 2 to 3 servings of brewed tea helps in maintaining the body balance throughout the day and keeping a person alert and active. However, more than four cups of tea, may do more harm than good to your health making you depend on it in terms of an addiction. Also, too much of tea leads to mood swings, headaches, depression, fatigue etc. To read more good and bad effects of tea see http://www.medimanage.com/mydiet/articles/just-how-much-tea-and-which-one.aspx
