Much research has suggested that drinking green tea can fight disease and lead to a longer and healthier life. The active ingredients in it are referred to as polyphenols or catechins. To break this down even further, it is the ECGC (Epigallocatechin gallate) which specifically provides the most protection as shown through research. This antioxidant is credited as one of the most powerful and well researched antioxidants available!! So what are the many and varied benefits of green tea you ask? Here are a few that may be of interest to you:
