-  How does taking green tea in capsule or tablet form compare to drinking green tea?
The capsule and tablet forms provide more concentrated amounts of green tea’s beneficial components. In green tea the main polyphenols are the catechins, including gallocatechin (GC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin (EC), and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Studies have shown that these catechins are the beneficial, health-promoting components of green tea, especially EGCG, a proven powerful antioxidant.


-  What are the main benefits of green tea?
Studies have shown that green tea is a powerful antioxidant that supports cardiovascular and dental health, and glucose metabolism.


-  How does it benefit us as an antioxidant?
Green tea has significant antioxidant power. Antioxidants neutralize destructive free radicals and support cardiovascular health by preventing the oxidation of cholesterol. Limiting the oxidation of cholesterol is important to cardiovascular health. Research shows that as an antioxidant, EGCG is a much more potent than either vitamin C or vitamin E.


-  Couldn’t I just drink tea for the same benefits?
Yes, however, you’d have to drink numerous cups of tea, and you still would not be sure that you are getting the same level of polyphenols.


-  How does green tea differ from black and oolong tea?
All three are leaves from the same plant, the Camellia sinensis. Black tea leaves are fermented and roasted, oolong are fermented, and green tea leaves are only lightly steamed, so the leaves retain their chlorophyll, the source of the green color.*
