    Green tea which contains catechins, the most abundant of which is epigallocatechin gallate.

    Green tea also contains carotenoids, tocopherols, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), minerals such as chromium, manganese, selenium or zinc, and certain phytochemical compounds.

    It is a more potent antioxidant than black tea, although black tea has substances which green tea does not such as theaflavin.

    Green tea consumption is associated with reduced heart disease

    Green tea and green tea extracts, such as its component EGCG, have been used to prevent and treat a variety of cancers, including breast, stomach, and skin cancers.

    Green tea and green tea extracts have also been used for improving mental alertness, aiding in weight loss, lowering cholesterol levels, and protecting skin from sun damage.

    Green tea is usually brewed and drunk as a beverage. Green tea extracts can be taken in capsules and are sometimes used in skin products.

    Green tea preparations improve mental alertness, most likely because of its caffeine content.
