Some laboratory studies have shown that extracts from green tea can stop cancer cells from growing. Green tea contains substances called polyphenols, and a sub group called catechins, which scientists think gives antioxidant properties. But while these lab results are encouraging, more human studies needs to be made to make those results 100% accurate.
One thing we know as a fact is that tea is drunk widely across Asia and the rates of many cancers are much lower in Asia than other parts of the world.
Not convinced? Green tea is antioxidant and therefore very good for your body anyway so make sure you drink at least one cup a day. It can improve your digestion, your cerebral functions and your mood.
