Green tea is a
terrifically rich source of polyphenols - those compounds that continue to show promises as potent cancer fighters. People who regularly drink green tea have lower rates of stomach, lung, esophageal, pancreatic and colon cancer than those who do not. Green tea polyphenols stimulate the production of important antioxidants and detoxifying enzymes that block cancerous changes. Additionally, it can help prevent abnormal blood clotting, lower high blood pressure and raise the levels of good HDL cholesterol. Green tea is available in tea and supplemental form.
