Green Tea is made from the freshly dried leaves of the tea plant Camellia sinensis, a evergreen shrub or small tree native to East and southeast Asia. Today it is cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions across the world. It is usually trimmed to below 2 meters (6.5ft) when cultivated; the fowers are yellow and white, about 2-4 cm (1 to 1.5in) in diameter, with 7 or 8 petals. Unlike with Black Tea, the leaves are not fermented. There are two major varieties used for tea, namely Chinese Tea and Assam Tea.

The most important ingredient of Green Tea is caffeine, which is a stimulant to the central nervous system. It ist he world’s most widely consumed psychoactive drug, but unlike many other psychocative substances, it is legal. In the US, nearly 90% of adults consume caffeine daily.

Most of the medicinally beneficial properties of Green Tea are attributed to catechins (Epicatechin, Epicatechin Gallate, Epigallocatechin, Epigallocatechin Gallate). Green Tea may increase the secretion of adrenalin in the body so that with physical activity, fat is better dissolved. Green Tea may also limit caloric uptake in the colon – another beneficial effect for people on weight loss. In a study conducted by Dr. Yoshi Okada in 2004, it was demonstrated that the tannin contained in Green Tea may inhibit the formation of super-oxide, which in turn slows down aging processes. Dr. Tsuneo Kada at the National Institute of Genetics in Mishima, Japan, discovered in 1985 the inhibitory effects of Green Tea on cancer cells (stomach cancer, skin cancer cells): Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate blocks the enzyme Urokinase which cuts proteins, destroys cell tissue and promotes cancer cell growth. Dr. Robert Hayashi, a pediatrist at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, discovered that in combining Green Tea with vitamin C, the spread of cancer could be prevented.

Green Tea has many medicinal uses: it is a natural way of reversing water retention in the body (leading to edema). It is also rich in zinc, which is why it is traditionally recommended during pregnancy, and because it contains many flavanoids, it is indicated to prevent caries. Enzymes contained in Green Tea help transform cholesterol. Finally, Green Tea is a natural stimulant due to its high content in caffeine, Theobromine and Theophylline.
