Green Tea Health Benefits Examined
Green tea, native to China and India, has been consumed and hailed for its health benefits for centuries globally, but has only recently gained popularity in the US. All types of tea except herbal tea are brewed from the dried leaves of the Camellia sinensis bush. The level of oxidation of the leaves determines the type of tea. Green tea is made from un-oxidized leaves and is one of the less processed types of tea (with white tea the least) and therefore contains one of the most antioxidants and beneficial polyphenols.
Green tea was used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine to control bleeding and heal wounds, aid digestion, improve heart and mental health and regulate body temperature. Recent studies have shown green tea can potentially have positive effects on everything from weight loss to liver disorders to type 2 diabetes.
Unsweetened brewed green tea is a zero calorie beverage. The caffeine contained in a cup of tea can vary according to length of infusing time and the amount of tea infused. In general, green tea contains a relatively small amount of caffeine (approximately 20-45 milligrams per 8 oz cup), compared with black tea which contains about 50 milligrams and coffee with 95 milligrams per cup. Green tea is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks and contains one of the highest amount of antioxidants of any tea.
The natural chemicals called polyphenols in tea are what are thought to provide its anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects.
Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is the most studied and bioactive polyphenol in tea and has been shown to be the most effective at eliminating free radicals. Green tea is approximately 20% to 45% polyphenols by weight, of which 60% to 80% are catechins such as EGCG. Reported in the journal Metabolomics, the study explores the effect of epigallocatechin gallate or “EGCG,” an active biological agent of green tea.
Possible health benefits of green tea
Listed below are the possible health benefits associated with green tea:
According to the National Cancer Institute, the polyphenols in tea have been shown to decrease tumor growth in laboratory and animal studies and may protect against damage caused by ultraviolet UVB radiation. In countries where green tea consumption is high cancer rates tend to be lower, but it is impossible to know for sure whether it is the green tea that prevents cancer in these specific populations or other lifestyle factors.
One large-scale clinical study compared green tea drinkers with non-drinkers and found that those who drank the most tea were less likely to develop pancreatic cancer, particularly women, who were 50% less likely to develop the disease. Studies have also shown the positive impacts of green tea on breast, bladder, ovarian, colorectal, esophageal, lung, prostate, skin and stomach cancer. Researchers believe that it is the high level of polyphenols in tea that help kill cancerous cells and stop them from growing, however the exact mechanisms by which tea interacts with cancerous cells is unknown.
Other studies have shown a lack of preventative effects of tea on cancer. The amount of tea required for cancer-preventive effects has also varied widely in studies – from 2- 10 cups per day.1 In 2005, the FDA stated that “there is no credible evidence to support qualified health claims for green tea consumption and a reduced risk of gastric, lung, colon/rectal, esophageal, pancreatic, ovarian, and combined cancers.”
A 2006 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that green tea consumption is associated with reduced mortality due to all causes, including cardiovascular disease. The study followed over 40,000 Japanese participants between the ages of 40 and 79 for 11 years, starting in 1994. The participants who drank at least 5 cups of green tea per day had a significantly lower risk of dying (especially from cardiovascular disease) than those who drank less than one cup of tea per day.
Another study found that consuming 10 cups of green tea per day can lower total cholesterol, however, consuming 4 cups or less had no effect on cholesterol levels.
Type 2 Diabetes
Studies concerning the relationship between green tea and diabetes have been inconsistent. Some have shown a lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes for green tea drinkers than for those who consumed no tea, while other studies have found no association between tea consumption and diabetes at all.
Other studies have found that green tea is helpful in preventing dental cavities, stress, chronic fatigue, treating skin conditions and improving arthritis by reducing inflammation.
Recent developments on the benefits of green tea:
Green tea or coffee may reduce stroke risk. Drinking green tea or coffee on a regular basis is associated with a reduced risk of stroke, according to a study published in the journal Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.
Green tea may help fight prostate cancer. British researchers have scientifically proven that broccoli, turmeric, green tea and pomegranate help fight the most common cancer in men in the United States and the United Kingdom – prostate cancer.
Green tea may boost our working memory. New research published in the journal Psychopharmacology suggests green tea can enhance our brain’s cognitive functions, particularly the working memory.
Green tea component upsets cancer cell metabolism. A new study reveals how an active component of green tea disrupts the metabolism of cancer cells in pancreatic cancer, offering an explanation for its effect on reducing risk of cancer and slowing its progression. The researchers believe the discovery signals a new approach to studying cancer prevention.
Lean + Green Tea White Paper
The epidemic of obesity is a staggering one that continues to rise throughout much of the civilized world. This condition, although debilitating itself, leads to several far more serious conditions, such as cardiovascular issues, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, and even some cancers. However, by addressing the weight issue first, many of these deadly conditions may be prevented. Scientists and medical professionals have made it their mission to reverse this condition, discovering new remedies that assist in weight loss. Lean + Green Tea is the product of much of this research.
Designed to not only stimulate weight loss itself, Lean + Green Tea has additional powerful properties that help in weight management. It was designed to reduce appetite as well as those pesky food cravings that seem to increase when one is trying to lose weight. By reducing the cravings and the appetite, calorie reduction can more easily be achieved. Along with this, Lean + Green Tea also works inside the body to help prevent the conversion of excess carbohydrates into fat. By reducing the excess fat storage, Lean + Green Tea allows for more energy to burn and less fat to try to work off later. Finally, it targets blood sugar homeostasis as well, helping better regulate sugar processing for added fat storage reduction and reduced weight gain.
This white paper will review the available scientific evidence to support the formulation and use of Lean + Green Tea as a weight management product. It will provide an overview of how the ingredients work both in vitro as well as in the body. For those wishing to pursue information further, a highly detailed review of the studies is also provided in this paper along with available citations for further reading.

I love sharing other people’s health improvement experiences because they give me confidence to, at the very least, give a health product – that’s easy to enjoy – a try! Here are just a few of the many coming in daily that apply directly to improvements in depression related experiences:
“Hi! My name is Mariz C., (41 y.o.) I have been a Registered Nurse for 21 years. I have been using Burn+Control Coffee (1-2x a day depending on how much my calorie intake in a day) for 9 months now and I absolutely love the taste. I lost 15lbs and maintained my weight without starving myself. I can eat whatever I want, but I am mindful of the quality of food I am eating.
But my greatest testimony is my mother, a 40 year diabetic, and on the verge of starting hemodialysis. Since she started drinking the Lean+Green Tea, it kept her blood sugar within normal limits and reversed her kidney failure.
All complications of being diabetic for a long time. You might say it’s impossible but I have lab results to prove it. Her A1C level, an indicator for kidney function was from 9.0 (bad) went down to (7.0) better. (Ideal is 6.5 below). So it’s amazing!
That’s why I am so amazed and passionate about sharing these products coz they just flat out work! I have heard a lot of consumers of Javita who have similar results too and I want others who don’t know these products yet, to experience what we all have experienced by just changing the cup of their coffee or tea to Burn+Control Coffee and Lean+Green Tea! Thank you for changing our lives!”
-Mariz C., RN Rancho Cordova, CA
This loving husband and father of five has his life (and blood sugar levels) back on track thanks to Lean+Green Tea. Check out Angel’s story:
”Hi my name is Angel and I’ve been Diabetic for 15 years. When I first found out I was Diabetic, my sugar levels were dangerously high–ranging anywhere from 400-600. I never took my sugar levels as seriously as i should have, until I lost my Dad due to Diabetic complications. That’s when I knew i had to do something.
Even with a change in diet, it was hard for me to be consistent. Not to mention my sugar levels were ranging from 150-160, and that WHILE I was TAKING MEDICATION prescribed by my doctor.
Then my wife discovered Lean+Green Tea. After checking out the ingredients, she suggested i try it. I’ve never been a fan of ANY tea, but considering I’d tried everything, I thought it was worth a shot.
Within a couple of days, I started to feel shaky and assumed my sugar levels were high. But when i tested my sugar it was 75. I immediately called my Doctor and asked why i was shaking if my levels were normal. He said my body was not used to functioning at NORMAL. Since starting Lean+Green Tea twice a day (January 2014), my sugar levels are ranging from 80-90’s AND my A1C is 6.1 with NO medications!!! As an ADDED BONUS I’ve lost weight and inches!! Thank you Lean+Green Tea for helping me get on the path to GREAT health!! We have 5 kids, and I plan on being around a long time to watch them grow. Thank You!!” ~Angel F.
How can you not love this…
“So….Maxie now has an A1c of 6.9!!!!! Thank you Lean+Green Tea!!” –Trudy
A1C is the average glucose level in a cell for the last 90 days (3 months) My A1C went from 5.9 to 5.2 after consuming Lean & Green Tea for just 60 days!
I forgot to add A1C level guide line are from 4.0 to 5.9.
But for a Diabetic, the 6.9 is not bad at all, especially for kids.
I wish mine was like that when I was 8 years old.
Congrats Maxie!!! -Greg Costa

Tea is one of the world’s most popular beverages—enjoyed worldwide and in endless ways. Its versatility makes it the perfect drink, adaptable to every climate and culture
According to the tea industry:
~ More than two-thirds of the world’s population drinks tea ~ Eighty-five (85) percent of the tea consumed is iced ~ Over the last 10 years, ready-to-drink (instant) tea consumption has grown more than 15 -fold
Much research suggests drinking tea—particularly green tea—can fight diseases and even lengthen life. This is due to tea’s high concentration of antioxidants called polyphenols. While polyphenols are also found in abundance in fruits, vegetables, and grains, tea is especially and uniquely rich in particular types of polyphenols called catechins (specifically, EGCG) that may be the most powerful ones of all.
There are countless reasons to enjoy a delicious simmering up, but here are some of the most important:
Protection Against Heart Diseases and High Blood Pressure
A study of 40,530 people in Japan, where green tea is widely consumed, found drinking green tea significantly lowered the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. (31% lower risk in women, and 22% lower risk in men.) The risk of dying from stroke was even lower: 62% lower in women and 42% lower in men. The catechins in green tea are believed to inhibit the production of free radicals in the lining of the arteries and also help prevent the formation of blood clots.
Reduced Risk of Hypertension / High Blood Pressure
Regular consumption of green or oolong tea (for at least one year) also has been shown to lower the risk of developing hypertension by 46% for those who drank up to 2.5 cups a day and 65% less for those who drank more than 2.5 cups. A review, published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition concludes that “green tea and EGCG can be regarded as food components useful for the maintenance of cardiovascular and metabolic health.”
Promotes Quiet Alertness
Drinking tea can contribute to both relaxation and concentration. L-theanine is an amino acid that occurs naturally in the Camellia Sinensis plant. In fact, unless you take an artificially manufactured dietary supplement, tea is the ONLY way to get L-theanine in your diet. This powerful amino acid boosts alpha wave activity in our brains, which promotes a state of relaxed concentration. Think “quiet alertness”. The calming effects of L-theanine actually counteract the extreme highs and jitteriness that can result from excessive caffeine intake.
Burns Fat & Stabilizes Energy
Research at Tufts University indicates that EGCG in green tea, like other catechins, activates fat-burning genes in the abdomen to speed weight loss by 77 percent. In addition, it keeps energy stable by balancing blood sugar levels. EGCG also improves insulin use in the body to prevent blood sugar spikes and crashes that can result in fatigue, irritability, and cravings for unhealthy foods.

The Slimming Side of Green Tea
Here are a few reasons to ‘go green’ for a slimmer waistline:*
Green Tea Reduces Fat*
When sugar and fat enter your body, they form a substance called triglyceride, which provides energy to support various functions of the body. However, a problem arises when there is an excessive amount of triglycerides. This excess can be transformed into fat. Green tea can counter this, due to its high amount of polyphenols to help dissolve the excess triglycerides.*
Green Tea Stimulates Metabolism*
Green tea provides a number of potent antioxidants, including a compound called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) that can help kickstart your body’s metabolism and speed up weight loss. Together with the caffeine in green tea, EGCG works to stimulate the central nervous system and release fat into the blood stream, so that your body can use the fat as fuel.*
Green Tea Improves Endurance During Exercise*
The catechin polyphenols in green tea stimulate your muscle cells and liver to use more fatty acids. As a result, your body will use carbohydrates at a slower rate. With more carbohydrates remaining in your body, you can exercise for a longer period of time, and your body will burn more fat.*
Serving Up a Superior Cup
The green tea featured in Javita’s Lean+Green is grown in the Shizuoka region of Japan, considered the ‘Napa Valley’ of green tea. This third-generation grower, whose family has been cultivating tea for nearly 100 years, has discovered the secret to the perfect cup. Their secret, and the key to this award-winning tea, is a combination of factors which include the growing environment (recognized as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System), harvesting conditions and micronization process. In addition to the nutrient-rich soil and clean-air environment, every leaf is steam sealed for freshness and to preserve the tea’s natural green color.
As an extra quality measure, each batch of tea undergoes a proprietary 20-day, multi-step micronization process to release delicate flavors, preserve key nutrients and remove excess water.
The history of tea is long and complex, spreading across multiple cultures over the span of thousands of years. Tea likely originated in Yunnan, China during the Shang Dynasty (1500 BC–1046 BC) as a medicinal drink.
The Chinese have consumed tea for thousands of years. People of the Han Dynasty used tea as medicine (though the first use of tea as a stimulant is unknown). China is considered to have the earliest records of tea consumption, with records dating back to the 10th century BC. The earliest credible record of tea drinking dates to the 3rd century AD, in a medical text by Hua T’o, who stated that “to drink bitter t’u constantly makes one think better.”
Tea use spread to Japan about the sixth century. Tea became a drink of the religious classes in Japan when Japanese priests and envoys, sent to China to learn about its culture, brought tea to Japan. Ancient recordings indicate the first batch of tea seeds were brought by a priest named Saichō in 805 and then by another named Kūkai in 806. It became a drink of the royal classes when Emperor Saga, the Japanese emperor, encouraged the growth of tea plants. Seeds were imported from China, and cultivation in Japan began.
Tea was first introduced into India by the British in an attempt to break the Chinese monopoly on tea. The British, “using Chinese seeds, plus Chinese planting and cultivating techniques, launched a tea industry by offering land in Assam to any European who agreed to cultivate tea for export.” Tea was originally only consumed by Anglicized Indians. It was not until the 1950s that tea grew widely popular in India through a successful advertising campaign by the India Tea Board.
Prior to the British, the plant may have been used for medicinal purposes. The importing of tea into Britain began in the 1660s with the marriage of King Charles II to the Portuguese princess Catherine of Braganza, who brought to the court the habit of drinking tea. On 25 September 1660 Samuel Pepys recorded in his diary: “I did send for a cup of tee (a China drink) of which I never had drank before.” Regular trade began in Guangzhou (Canton). Trade was controlled by two monopolies: the Chinese Hongs (trading companies) and the British East India Company. The Hongs acquired tea from ‘the tea men’ who had an elaborate supply chain into the mountains and provinces where the tea was grown. The East India Company brought back many products, of which tea was just one, but it was to prove one of the most successful. It was initially promoted as a medicinal beverage or tonic. By the end of the seventeenth century tea was taken as a drink, albeit mainly by the aristocracy. In 1690 nobody would have predicted that by 1750 tea would be the national drink. The origin of large trade in tea was the need for a return cargo from the East Indies. Merchantmen ships delivered fabrics manufactured in Britain to India and China but would return empty or partially full. To solve this problem the East India Company began a vigorous public relations campaign in England to popularize tea among the common people in Britain and develop it as a viable return cargo. Ceylon’s coffee production was reduced by 95% in the 19th century by a fungus, cementing tea’s popularity.
While coffee is by far more popular, hot brewed black tea is enjoyed both with meals and as a refreshment by much of the population. Similarly, iced tea is consumed throughout. In the Southern states sweet tea, sweetened with large amounts of sugar or an artificial sweetener and chilled, is the fashion. Outside the South, sweet tea is sometimes found, but primarily because of cultural migration and commercialization.
Tea also played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. The colonists lived very much as the British did and consumed large quantities of Tea, and when the crown put a tax on the transportation and sale of tea, it was a factor in the revolution. It proved a major tipping point in the form of the Boston Tea Party. Tea consumption decreased in America sharply after the American Revolution, as “The Americans love it very much, but they had resolved to drink it no longer, as the famous duty on the tea had occasioned the war.” The American specialty tea market quadrupled in the years from 1993–2008, now being worth $6.8 billion a year. Similar to the trend of better coffee and better wines, this tremendous increase was partly due to consumers who choose to trade up. Specialty tea houses and retailers also started to pop up during this period.
The ever-increasing popularity of tea—particularly green tea—and the growing number of published health studies are fueling a unique healthy tea market that is not just growing, it is thriving.
