The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG is a powerful anti-oxidant: besides inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, it kills cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.. Having enough antioxidants in your diet means that your organism is able to react to some conditions much quicker. For example, your skin cells are rebuilt at a faster rate if you have more antioxidants in your body. Also, your internal organs function at a better efficiency – mainly the liver and kidneys, which will be better protected against most of their associated diseases as well. Add to that the fact that green tea contains the most powerful antioxidants known to man, is why it's so healthy and useful.
