All plants contain compounds called phytochemicals, which help protect them from diseases. When you eat plant foods, you may also benefit from the disease-protective properties of these compounds, which are divided into subcategories such as polyphenols and carotenoids. The most significant phytochemical in green tea is a polyphenol called epigallocatechin-3-gallate, or EGCG for short. In laboratory animal and human studies, the benefits of EGCG have begun to emerge.
Researchers believe that the health properties of green tea are mostly due to polyphenols, which are chemicals with potent antioxidant potential. In fact, the antioxidant effects of polyphenols seem to be greater than vitamin C. Polyphenols contained in teas are classified as catechins. Green tea contains six primary catechin compounds and EGCG is one of them. EGCG is the most studied polyphenol component in green tea and the most active.
Green Tea has been studied frequently and for many different types of conditions, disorders and the treatment of cancers. Research studies have shown that green tea can help lower the risk of heart disease by raising the HDL (good) and lowering the LDL (bad) cholesterol in humans. Scientific studies suggest that EGCG and green tea polyphenols have both anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties that may help prevent the development and growth of skin tumors.
