Green Tea is made out of the natural dried leaves of the tea plant. Researchers studying green tea have found it to be an excellent source of polyphenols, a special class of bioflavanoids that are potent antioxidants. The most important group of phenolic compounds are the cathecins, and in particular (-)Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). EGCG is two hundred times more powerful in neutralizing free radicals, than vitamin E. EGCE is also known to confer protection against digestive and respiratory infections and also food poisoning, while encouraging acidophilus growth and regularizing bowel habits. In laboratory studies, 500 mg of green tea cathecins per day have been shown to significantly lower blood pressure and possess anti-mutagenic activity. Green tea also blocks the attachment of bacteria to teeth, protecting them against cavities.
