Green tea plant is derived from the same plant as are black and oolong teas, Camellia sinensis. The difference lies in how the tea leaves are prepared. Green tea maintains all of its active constituents because the leaves are not fermented, as are those of both black and oolong teas.

These active components, called polyphenols, appear to be responsible for green tea's beneficial properties. These include the ability to protect against heart disease by lowering blood pressure, lowering total cholesterol levels, and reducing platelet aggregation (the clumping of blood cells that may lead to clotting).
Green tea plant has also demonstrated the ability to reduce the risk of some cancers, especially esophageal cancer, and to fight bacteria, including the type that causes gingivitis and bad breath.

Uses of Green Tea:

Green tea is used to treat cancer, eczema, gingivitis, and heart attack and cardiovascular disease.
