A Review on Medicinal Benefit of Green Tea
White, green, and black teas are all produced from the Camellia sinensis plant. Tea is one of the world's most popular drinks, second only to water in terms of pleasure and health. In terms of health advantages, green tea has been shown to be superior to black tea. The polyphenols, which are responsible for green tea's antioxidant and other health advantages, are the main components of interest. Flavonoids are the most abundant polyphenols in green tea. Epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin gallate (EGG) are the four main flavonoids found in green tea (EGCG). The most important active ingredient is epigallocatechin gallate. The methods used to make black tea are known to reduce monometric catechin levels to a far higher degree than the less harsh conditions used to make other teas. There is a lot of evidence showing the health advantages of green tea for a range of conditions, such as cancer, heart disease, liver illness, and so on. Green tea may also help with diabetes, exercise, inflammatory bowel disease, skin problems, hair loss, weight reduction, and iron overload, among other things. The main health advantages of green tea will be reviewed in this article, with an emphasis on catechins.
