Chinese Green Tea - Health Benefits

The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechins polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant. It has the power of inhibiting the growth of cancer cells as well as kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue. It has also been effective in lowering LDL cholesterol levels, and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots.
