Polyphenols (catechins) are the active ingredients in green tea providing a variety of benefits.

Moreover, individuals drinking green tea extract has documented lower blood pressure. It also reduces total cholesterol, LDL (the bad cholesterol),  serum amyloid-alpha (a marker of chronic inflammation) and malondialdehyde (a marker of oxidative stress) (Nantz MP, et al. 2009). People are high in cardiovascular risk factors if they have these conditions. Significantly, individuals reduced their risks in cardiovascular disease in only 3 weeks after drinking green tea extract.

Green tea may provide neuroprotection and has been associated with a lower prevalence of cognitive impairment (Kuriyama S, et al. 2006).

In a study including 41,761 participants, researchers found that green tea consumption was associated with a reduced risk of liver cancer (Ui A, et al. 2009).

Green tea polyphenols have been documented to reduce serum biomarkers in patients with prostate cancer (McLarty J, et al. 2009).

Regular drinking of green tea has been associated with a slightly decreased risk of breast cancer (Shrubsole MJ, et al. 2008).

Green tea consumption was inversely associated with psychological distress in an assessment of 42,093 individuals (Hozawa A, et al. 2009). A consumption of 4 cups or more of green tea has been associated with a lower prevalence of depressive symptoms (Niu K, et al. 2009).
