Green tea offers plenty of health benefits thanks to its high concentrations of a number of substances. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and often seen as a ‘super-food/drink’. Polyphenols are found in many plants including grapes and other fruits, and they are one of the most powerful antioxidants available. The richest supply of polyphenols in nature is in the tea bush Camellia Sinensis. Black, green and oolong tea are produced from the Camellia Sinensis using different methods. Green tea has higher amounts of polyphenols than black tea because of different extraction processes. Antioxidants play a number of important roles in the body, but their key role is minimising the damage caused to cells by the aging process and the presence of free radicals in our diet. The main active ingredient in Green Tea is the chemical epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), one of the most powerful polyphenol antioxidants which has many beneficial properties from immunity to eliminating free radicals.
