Tea Plant benefits

Medicinal Properties:

The better-retained phytochemical complement makes green tea a notable contribution to good health, particularly dental health and prevention of cancer, according to a large, growing body of research. In addition to several antibacterial compounds that fight germs and infections, the polyphenols prevent plaque from building up on your teeth, making green tea excellent protection against cavities and gum disease. (It even contains a bit of fluoride.)

The polyphenols (a large group of phytochemicals that includes epigallocatechin gallate, proanthocyanidins, catechin, and epicatechin, among others) are muscular antioxidants—stronger than vitamins C and E, according to laboratory studies. They also pump up the muscles' own antioxidant enzymes (such as glutathione) and interfere with the creation of cancer-causing nitrosamines that we ingest in such nitrite-laced foods as cured meats. It's no wonder, then, that studies comparing green tea consumption to cancer rates in Japan and China have connected a higher consumption of the minimally processed leaves with a far lower incidence of malignancies.

Tea, whether green or black, contains caffeine. For a review of that phytochemical's therapeutic powers.
