Polyphenols (flavonoids) are powerful antioxidants that are 100 times more potent than Vitamin C and 25 times more than Vitamin E. Polyphenols are important for fighting harmful free radicals, which cause degenerative diseases and immune system deficiency.
Studies show that consuming foods high in polyphenols can promote good health, maintain normal weight and stimulates the immune system. Green tea contains higher antioxidants—flavonoid polyphenols than black and oolong teas.
The polyphenols that exist in green tea are mainly (-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC), (-)-epicatechin gallate (ECG), (+)-epicatechin (EC), (-)-gallocatechin gallate (GCG), and (-)-catechin. EGCG is the most powerful and the most abundant of the six major catechins found in green tea.
