Green tea’s health benefits primarily come from the following nutrients:

CATECHINS

The most beneficial antioxidant:  25 to 100 times more potent than Vitamin C & E.

EGCG

The Most powerful among Catechin subclasses; responsible for green tea’s long list of health benefits.

L-THEANINE

Green Tea is one of the best natural sources of antioxidants we have.  The therapeutic benefits are tops, especially for cancer of any kind, and green tea is extremely cost effective compared to alternatives.  Used by cultures all over the world, Green Tea is one of the nature’s most beneficial and readily available substances.  And, consuming it in powder form, as Ground Green Tea, provides many times more antioxidants than Green Tea brewed from bags or loose leaves because most of the antioxidants are not water soluble and do not come out into the brew water–so we don’t get them unless we eat the leaves.”
