Green tea: Green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in particular, is a powerful antioxidant.
Some studies have shown green tea polyphenols to have a stronger antioxidant action than Vitamin C and E.
Green tea is effective at lowering LDL cholesterol and blood pressure levels and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots.
In countries where green tea is regularly consumed, there are significantly lower levels of heart disease.
Green tea is also known to be beneficial for weight loss, because the polyphenols induce thermogenesis and stimulate fat oxidation, boosting the metabolic rate without increasing the heart rate.
