How Green Tea Works
Green tea contains volatile oils, vitamins, minerals, and caffeine, but the primary constituents of interest are the polyphenols, particularly the catechin called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The polyphenols are believed to be responsible for most of green tea’s roles in promoting good health.
Green tea has been shown to protect against the oxidation of cholesterol to a more toxic molecule (oxidized cholesterol). Consumption of green tea increases antioxidant activity in the blood. Oxidative damage to LDL can promote atherosclerosis. While population studies have suggested that consumption of green tea is associated with protection against atherosclerosis, the evidence is still preliminary.
In a double-blind trial, people with leukoplakia (a pre-cancerous oral condition) took 3 grams orally per day of a mixture of whole green tea, green tea polyphenols, and green tea pigments orally, and also painted a mixture of the tea on their lesions three times daily for six months. As compared to the placebo group, those in the green tea group had significant decreases in the pre-cancerous condition.
