Benefits of Green Tea

Green Tea: Americans are beginning to realize what Eastern cultures have known for thousands of years.

This new drink is a special kind of tea. And it's been to significantly reduce the effects of carcinogens in laboratory in mice. It slowed the development of skin cancer in mice exposed to UV radiation. It helps slow or prevent the formation of stomach and lung cancer tumor in mice. And in one study, using one of the most potent carcinogens in cigarette smoke, mice given this type of tea developed 45% fewer lung cancer tumors.

In Japan, the dead rate from lung cancer is much lower than in the United States. Even the average cigarette consumption among men in Japan is much higher.

Statistical studies show that Japanese people who drink a lot of green tea lower rates of all types of cancer, and especially stomach cancer.

Scientists currently believe that the active ingredients that may be responsible for the anticarcino effect are the group of polyphenols called catechins. Dry black tea, like your ordinary grocery tea contain 35-105 catechins. Oolong tea contains a little bit more 8%-20%. Green tea, however contains a lot more. A full 30-42% of the dry weight of green tea consists of catechins.

Green tea is heated with dry air or team, and this destroys the enzyme in the leaves that allows the polyphenols to oxidize. So they remain in the leaves to benefit mankind (we hope) and laboratory mice.
